Galaxy Note 9 Release: Everything You Need to Know

Galaxy Note 9 Release: Everything You Need to Know is a post by Cory Gunther from Gotta Be Mobile.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 release date is likely only a few months away, and here’s everything you need to know. In this post, we’ll go over all the latest Galaxy Note 9 news, leaks, specs, release details and all the latest rumors.

Even though the Galaxy S9 is still fairly new, potential buyers are already looking ahead to what’s next. Recently, we’ve received leaked photos, an early release date rumor, and more that has potential Note 9 buyers excited. At the same time, if not enough changes, buyers might end up looking elsewhere. This is what to expect from the next Note.

Could this be the Note 9?
  • Galaxy Note 9 Release Date: August 9th according to new reports
  • What is the Galaxy Note 9?: Samsung’s biggest and best smartphone
  • What to expect?: Big phone, familiar design with small changes
  • How Much Will it Cost?: Likely around $950 like the Galaxy Note 8

Now that you know a few of the basics and we’ve answered some important questions, read on for the latest news and rumors.

Galaxy Note 9 Release Date

In June, Bloomberg reported that Samsung will move up the launch date to August 9th in New York City. Hosting it’s annual Unpacked event earlier than expected. We’ve seen similar rumors suggesting an August or September launch, so this makes sense.

Remember, the Galaxy Note 8 got announced on August 23rd and release in early September of 2017. If the August 9th rumor above is correct, a release date will follow quickly behind it. If we had to guess, the Galaxy Note 9 release date is August 24th around the globe.

A big part of this early launch event and the release date is to beat the new iPhone X2 or iPhone 11 to the market. Not to mention have the phone available before Apple even makes announcements or shows off a new iPhone on stage.

Galaxy Note 9 Design & Display

If the Galaxy S9 release told us anything, the Galaxy Note 9 will look nearly identical to the Galaxy Note 8 from 2017. So while we know it’ll be a big phone, don’t expect too many changes to the overall design or the big display.

Based on that, expect the same 6.3-inch Quad-HD Curved Infinity display with ever-shrinking bezels, and curved edges. And no, Samsung isn’t putting a fingerprint scanner under the screen. That rumor got shut down multiple times over the past few months. The technology just isn’t ready (or perfect) yet.

Above, you can see a leaked photo (or fan-made render) of the Galaxy Note 9 from Twitter. This comes from a popular and trusted leakster, so it’s likely an accurate representation of what’s coming. That being said, @Onleaks recently released a slew of photos and videos based on case manufacturer CAD reports. Meaning the image below is probably exactly what’s coming.

Is this the Galaxy Note 9?

One thing you’ll notice from both leaks is the familiar overall look, style, and design. If you look close though, Samsung did manage to shrink the bezel on the bottom of the phone. This gives them room to keep the huge 6.3-inch screen without making the phone too big. Additionally, Samsung did NOT follow Apple and add a notch to the display.

The biggest difference here is the camera setup and fingerprint scanner, but more on that below. We do, however, like the centered fingerprint scanner. That should make it much easier to reach and use.

For what it’s worth, the leakster who shared the image above claims Samsung did make one last-minute change, and that the final product may look slightly different from what we see above.

Galaxy Note 9 Specs & Features

The Galaxy Note 9 is Samsung’s powerhouse flagship smartphone. Sporting an S-Pen stylus and the latest specs, it’s built for productivity. As a result, this phone will have all the latest hardware and possibly a few exciting improvements. Basically, the design might be the same, but Bixby, the camera, and a few other things could see big changes.

Galaxy Note 9 Specs (Rumored)

  • 6.3-inch Quad-HD Curved Infinity AMOLED Display
  • Snapdragon 845 Processor or Samsung Exynos 9810 with 6-8GB of RAM
  • 64/128/256GB storage options (256 is only a rumor)
  • Android 8.1 Oreo or Android 9.0 P with Samsung UX
  • Dual 12MP Rear Cameras with variable aperture, IOS, 960 FPS Slow-mo, more
  • 8MP Front Selfie Camera with Portrait Mode & Improved AR Emoji
  • Stereo Speaker tuned by AKG
  • 3,850 mAh or 4,000 mAh battery with fast and wireless charging (exciting rumor)
  • IP68 Dust & Water-resistance
  • USB Type-C, Bixby 2.0, Bixby AI, 3.5mm headphone jack
  • Heart-rate sensor, Face Unlock, Iris Scanning
  • and more

As expected, the Galaxy Note 9 will be a powerful flagship smartphone. Powered by the latest and greatest specs and processors. We’re not sure if Samsung will add 8GB of RAM, or offer 256GB of storage, but everything else lines up with expectations, rumors, and previous release cycles.

What’s exciting though, is the bigger battery. The Galaxy Note 7 made Samsung take a very cautious approach to the Galaxy S8, Note 8, and even the Galaxy S9. This could be the year Samsung goes back to adding a bigger battery.

Again, the popular leakster Ice universe says Samsung will use a massive 3,850 mAh battery in the Galaxy Note 9. As a comparison, the Galaxy Note 8 has a small 3,300 mAh battery that doesn’t last nearly long enough. Even the Galaxy S9+ comes with a 3,500 mAh pack. So, this would be a welcomed change by Samsung for the Note line.

We’re also hearing reports of a new Face Unlock method that can compete with Apple’s Face ID. Last year Samsung combined the Iris Scanner with Face Unlock for a faster overall experience, but it wasn’t better or more secure. A recent patent from LetsGoDigital suggests Samsung will use a new Fisheye lens on the front for improved Face scanning, emoji-creation, and more.

If Samsung manages to keep everything the same while offering a better camera, longer battery life, and smaller bezels, it’ll be a phone worth buying.

Galaxy Note 9 Cameras

We don’t know much about the redesigned dual cameras on the back of the Galaxy Note 9, but we’re expecting more information and rumors to emerge any day now. Samsung added dual cameras with a variable aperture to its phones earlier this year. Look for something similar to complete the Note 9. Basically, the camera can change apertures on the fly. Switching between f/1.5 and f/2.4 for the best possible photo in any situation. Similar to how the human eye expands or shrinks to let in more or less light as necessary.

We’re expecting a similar camera experience from the all-new Galaxy Note 9. However, reports like the one from Bloomberg believe Samsung will have a few new camera tricks up its sleeve. Furthermore, the leak from LetsGoDigital mentions the Fisheye lens on the rear camera too, so we’re not sure yet.

Overall, we don’t really know too much about the dual cameras on the back of this phone. They could be similar to the Galaxy S9+, offer a few new tricks, or bring an entirely new experience to Samsung’s camera. We’ll have to wait for more Galaxy Note 9 news and rumors to emerge.

That’s all we really know about the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 for now. We’ll continue to update this post as we learn more about a potential August 9th launch, those cameras, and anything else that surfaces.
