Galaxy Note 9: Rumors on what is coming around the corner
Excited for Samsung’s next flagship device?
After Samsung was able to redeem themselves last year with the Note 8, the next one (codenamed Crown) is definitely on its way! What can we expect from the new phablet? Here’s a rundown from the rumor mill!
The Korea Herald got an exclusive that Samsung is almost done with their neural processing units or “AI chips”, which can help up their game in the area versus Apple, Huawei and the likes; and most likely will be available for the Note 9. What’s confirmed is we’ll be seeing a Bixby 2.0 in the Note 9 according to mobile chief DJ Koh last Mobile World Congress. We're pretty sure this new device will also be powered by the Snapdragon 845 just like the S9 and S9+.
What’s new is it may have a larger screen display: a 6.4-inch Infinity Display with 2,960x1,440 pixels and may even 4K resolution too.
They’re also going bigger on the battery (yep, they’re going for it even after the Note 7 battery debacle) to 3,850mAh or 4,000mAh to help power up the device.
Will we see the in-finger sensor?
Last MWC, an in-fingerprint screen has been launched from a Chinese company. But it’s in the gray area or “will they or won’t they” situation with reports coming from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. For now we can only have fingers crossed...
The Animojis can make its way to the Note 9 too by the way!
A new camera feature we might see is HDR video recording which will be a first for Samsung phones . Plus, this device will also have a headphone jack and may come with a free pair of AKG headphones.
It could be released earlier (than last year’s model) too as the tech-giant wants to make up for the not-so-stellar sales of the Galaxy S9 and S9+; also to launch ahead of the next iPhones this September. We’re looking at around July 2018 or August 2018 launch.
Of course, the elephant in the room is the price: estimated at around $930 to $960; $100 more from the S9+. There’s also been reported leaked photos of the Note 9 though we might have to take this with a grain of salt.
Whoa, the phone looks awesome but that price isn’t really nice to look at…
We totally understand where you’re coming from. Nowadays, to get a flagship phone means shelling out around $1,000. That’s why we at Tech Armor make sure that you get the best protection for your devices at a fraction of the price!
