Samsung has today pretty much confirmed the launch date for its flagship Galaxy Note 9 smartphone by sending out press invites to its Unpacked event to be held on August 9, BusinessInsider is reporting. The event is set to take place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, and will be broadcasted live on Samsung’s official website.
The Galaxy Note series comprises of Samsung’s larger display smartphones that come with the S Pen stylus, which is why the invite seems to show the next generation S Pen’s button (shown above). The invite also suggests new colour options for the Galaxy Note’s S Pen, which so far only comes in black.
“The Galaxy Note 9 is rumored to come with a similar design as the Note 8 with a few cues taken from the Galaxy S9, like having a fingerprint sensor underneath the camera rather than next to it. Other rumors claim the Note 9 will come with a fingerprint scanner embedded underneath the display, but that feature seems less and less likely.”
The Galaxy Note 9 is also expected to come with the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 that runs most of the Android flagship devices from 2018.
