Smartphones from the Samsung Galaxy Note series have begun the fashion for devices with large screens. That is why many people wonder when the Koreans will present the latest model with the S Pen. The latest reports say that Galaxy Note 9 will be presented on August 9, and its sale will start at the end of the same month.

Samsung has a very regular publishing cycle, which was not disturbed even by problems with defective batteries in the Galaxy Note 7. In the first quarter of each year appears the new flagship of the series Galaxy S. Their presentation takes place on the eve of the Barcelona Mobile World Congress, and the sale begins a few weeks later. Devices from the Galaxy Note line are presented at the turn of August and September. Samsung is trying to do it always before the Apple conference where new iPhones are shown. In this way, both manufacturers compete with each other in terms of the number of devices sold in the last quarter of a given year. If one has a leg, the other wins. That’s how it was 2 years ago, when Apple was enjoying the good results of sales of the iPhone 7, which resulted from Samsung’s problems with Note 7 self-ignitions.

What interesting will Galaxy Note 9 offer?

This is a very important question. The new Samsung flagship will certainly be slightly larger than the Galaxy S9 Plus and will have the S Pen stylus. However, is it enough for people to get interested in the new Samsung smartphone? Both flagships will be equipped with the same chipsets and the amount of RAM. Note 9 is also supposed to have the same dual camera as the Galaxy S9+. In both devices, the same type of display will be mounted, while the screen in Note 9 will have a diagonal of 6.4-inches (Galaxy S9+ has a 6.2-inches display). It is possible that larger dimensions will result in a more capacious battery. Recent rumours say that Galaxy Note 9 will get a battery of 3 850 mAh (in Galaxy S9+ it is 3 500 mAh).

Nothing also indicates that Samsung managed to master the placement of a fingerprint reader under the OLED screen. This technology is expected to appear only in the Samsung Galaxy S10, which will appear next year. That’s why it all indicates that the device that we see on August 9 will be a slightly refreshed version of the Galaxy S9+ with a stylus.
