Samsung Galaxy Note 9. August 9 in Brooklyn, New York.

Official release date Samsung Galaxy Note 9. August 9, became known after the invitation was sent on June 27 from Samsung. The release will take place in Brooklyn, New York, at 19:00 (Moscow time).


This is the next big and important Android smartphone that everyone is waiting for, and it will appear on radars as early as next month. This means that the new Galaxy Note phablet will arrive earlier than in previous years. we are used to seeing the announcement at the end of August.

The new Note series smartphones are always big news because it is an Android smartphone with a large screen, a convenient S-Pen and a bunch of performance, although rumors of a fingerprint sensor scanner may be premature, especially since the smartphone comes out earlier than expected.

Instead, most likely, we will see Bixby 2.0, an improved dual camera, perhaps one of them will be able to capture HDR that the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus could not, but this function is advertised by the latest LG and Sony phones.

Every day we understand rumors and leaks (there are a lot of them), and in this article we are ready to declare which of them are believable and which require reflection.

Samsung also seems to be worried by publishing a framework for device support pages with the model ID SM-N960F / DS, which is expected to run Note 9 in Finland, Norway, France, and Denmark.

In pursuit!

  • What is it? Samsung’s next flagship phablet;
  • When to expect? Perhaps in August 2018;
  • When on sale? Before the announcement of the new iPhone from Apple;
  • How much is? Not less than 929 (56,000 rubles);


  • Everything is official: Thursday, August 9. eventSamsungUnpacked;
  • Release date earlier than usual, earlier in late August;

Here is the official release invitation Galaxy Note 9.

You will be able to get the Galaxy Note 9 earlier than expected since the Samsung Unpacked event will take place in early August.

Thursday, August 9th is the official release date of the Galaxy Note 9, an event will be held in Brooklyn, New York to make a perspective, last year’s Note 8 release took place on August 23rd.

According to The Investor, the early release date is due to the fact that Note 9, code-named “Crown”, had a prototype in the first quarter of 2018.

Samsung, as reported, also tested the firmware for the phone ahead of schedule, two weeks earlier than the software for the Galaxy Note 8. And remember, the S9 firmware was tested before the S8, and its release also took place earlier.


Samsung needs early attention to Note 9, which outperforms the iPhone X2 and iPhone 9, which Apple is likely to introduce in early September.

This is the number one reason, in our opinion, forcing Samsung to show Note 9 earlier. First customers should receive their phones in August or early September.


Samsung Galaxy Note 9 should receive some serious updates regarding the Galaxy Note 8, but since the design is adopted from last year’s model, do not expect dramatic changes.

In fact, a previously leaked render showing the front of the smartphone suggests that Note 9 will not change at all, all buttons, sensors and everything else corresponds to Note 8.

The phone is very similar to Galaxy Note 8.

Earlier, we also saw a leak with a picture of the back of the phone based on a factory computer-aided design system. You can see the images below, they come from a fairly reliable source, namely from @OnLeaks, which was right several times before.

The images show a design that is very similar to the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, complete with a rectangular shape, a metal frame and a glass back panel. You can also see that on the back there is again a dual camera and a fingerprint scanner, which makes the touch scanner unlikely.

However, the scanner moved below the camera lens, a similar solution we saw on the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, but if it stacks its cameras vertically, the Note 9 presented here places them horizontally.

Other details include a 3.5mm headphone port, USB-C port, speaker grill, S-Pen stylus and microphone at the base, thin bezels (but no cut-outs) on the front panel, power button and volume buttons on the left , Bixby button on the right.

It is also stated that the Note 9 will be protected from water and dust, which is not surprising, since all Samsung high-end smartphones have this option.

Along with the images above, you can see the below, which is supplied by the same source.

The dimensions of the new Galaxy Note 9 also leaked to the network, and now it is 161.9 x 76.3 x 8.8 mm (or, possibly, 162 x 76.4 x 8.8 mm), which is slightly shorter, but slightly wider and Thicker than 162.5 x 74.8 x 8.6 mm Galaxy Note 8.

Thus, the overall dimensions are similar, which is not surprising, since the screen size is likely to remain 6.3 inches.

As always, you should perceive images with a pinch of salt, but the source is reliable and the renderings seem pretty convincing. We also saw various covers, as well as a front panel with a very similar design.

And while the design of the new smartphone may change slightly, the available colors may be different: blue, copper, silver, purple and black, according to rumors, will become available options. You can see them below, noting that some are surprisingly vibrant.

These may be color options for Note 9.

On the other hand, Samsung’s patent demonstrates the design of a phone with a screen that is curved to the right, but, oddly enough, flat on the left side. if that sounds familiar, it’s because the smartphone is similar to the 2014 Galaxy Note Edge.

This is an unusual design that is fundamentally different from Note 8, so we are skeptical of a patent in the plane of Note 9, but you never know for sure.

Could this be an early design Samsung Galaxy Note 9?


  • An expensive smartphone, regardless of whether the price rises;

The price of Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will not be able to please us as well as the early release date. When the smartphone enters the market, it will be expensive.

Galaxy Note 8 was sold at 929 (56,000 r) at the start, and we see no reason to lower the price of Note 9, especially amid rising Apple from the iPhone X.

For now, you should be satisfied with the predecessor of Note 9, if you are looking for a smartphone with a stylus, but cheaper. Below you can see the best for Galaxy Note 8 in your city.


The biggest rumor around the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 concerns its fingerprint scanner with several leaks indicating that it can be built directly into the phone screen.

We have seen (and tested) touch fingerprint scanners on Chinese smartphones. including the Vivo Nex and the Mate RS Porsche Design. And Samsung is said to be testing a variety of screen solutions that could potentially increase the Note 9’s battery.

This information corresponds to another leak, which said that Note 9 will receive not only a screen scanner, but also a large 3850 mAh battery.

However, a slightly earlier rumor indicates that the fingerprint sensor will bypass the Note 9 side, like the S9 / S9 Plus. There is much more reason to believe that it will appear on the Galaxy X (or Galaxy S10 next year).

According to rumors, Samsung and Apple are working on this technology, but have not yet made progress on the latest phones, which forces Samsung to move the scanner to an unsuitable position on the back of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Note 8, while Apple completely abandoned it on the iPhone X.

There is encouraging evidence on this subject in the form of a Samsung patent showing a phone with a scanner built into the screen. Presumably, he digitally tells the user where to put his finger and may even have vibration as feedback.

Huawei and Vivo demonstrated this technology on 2018 phones, but Samsung is said to be working on an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor for Note 9, while Huawei and Vivo use light-based optical technology.

It may be a form that will take Samsung Galaxy Note 9.

But we saw many images of the upcoming phone, from which it appears that Samsung decided to place the scanner on the rear panel, as on the current flagship devices, so right now the touch scanner for Note 9 seems unlikely.


Well-known rumor provider Eldar Murtazin recently wrote extensive information on the Galaxy Note 9 for Mobile-Review, revealing, among other things, a 4000 mAh smartphone battery.

These data are consistent with later rumors that the smartphone will receive 4000 mAh battery capacity, which is the new limit for Samsung’s flagship devices. One rumor went through the screen with a diagonal of 6.4 inches, but we are not sure that this could be true.

And while one source claimed that the Note 9 could get a 3850 mAh battery, which will be significantly larger than the 3300 mAh in Note 8, it is only slightly larger than the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus (3500 mAh) battery, so this is believable.

Returning to Murtazin’s claims, Note 9 will also likely receive a Super AMOLED panel, which may become slightly brighter than on Note 8, presumably the smartphone will have three versions: 6 GB / 128 GB, 8 GB / 126 GB and 8 GB / 512 GB

Apparently, all models will retain microSD card slots, Note 9 will come to Russia with Exynos chipsets, while the USA and South Korea will receive Snapdragon.

Murtazin also said that the camera will receive a replaceable aperture, like the S9 range, but with improved optical stabilization.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is also likely to present high specifications, which indicates the presence of the Snapdragon 845 chipset, 6 GB of RAM and all this running Android 8.1. the same characteristics as in the US version of the Galaxy S9 Plus.

In addition, there was another source that promised a flagship configuration with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal memory.

However, there have been rumors that Samsung is working on the Exynos 9820 chipset. It may offer improved performance as well as offering HDR recording.

This feature is already supported by the Snapdragon 845, but it is striking in its absence on the Galaxy S9, probably because the Exynos 9820 does not support HDR. With newer Android phones like the Sony Xperia XZ2 capable of writing HDR, Samsung should catch up.

Another report claims that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 may receive 512 GB of memory in some markets, which is not the first time we hear. Korean sources suggest that the smartphone will come in 64, 256 and 512 GB models, but they believe that the largest model will be available only to China and South Korea.

We also heard the statement that the S-Pen is waiting for some big updates, the main one of which, apparently, is the inclusion of Bluetooth, and one source said that this will allow you to unlock Note 9 using the S-Pen, while others claim that it will allow you to pause and flip through your music using the S-Pen and even use the stylus as a remote control.

Among the more unexpected news, there was a chance that Samsung would go beyond the on-screen fingerprint scanner by integrating the camera and sensors into the display to get a truly borderless design.

This might be too ambitious for a 2018 release.

It might be an idea for Galaxy Note 9.

However, an even more ambitious goal for the Galaxy note 9 might be to get a flexible display. This is a decision Samsung has been working on for a very long time, and there is an assumption that the technology may become a reality at the end of this year.

However, it is too late for the implementation of technology in Note 9 and Samsung may not want to debut with the experimental technology on a major flagship.

And returning to reality, The Korea Herald reports that Samsung can equip the Galaxy Note 9 NPU (neural processor). This is essentially an artificial intelligence chip, as on the latest Apple and Huawei phones.

It’s unclear exactly how Samsung is going to use the chip, but it could potentially speed up certain features of the new phone.
