After the recalls that plagued the Galaxy Note 7, Samsung delivered a killer device in the Galaxy Note 8. Unfortunately, many felt the subsequent Galaxy S9 and S9 + were not exactly heady enhancements, so Samsung wanted to get it out of the park, their next flagship, the Galaxy Note 9.
The Galaxy Note 8 sold like "hotcakes" and sold alone in South Korea over a million units. Samsung is not keen to be outdone (especially by itself), so expect the Galaxy Note 9 to be even better than its predecessors.
As with all rumors, you should take them with a grain of salt. While we already know most aspects of the phone, be careful to treat any rumors as facts until the official announcement. Now let's go to the brass and rethink everything we know.

Exclusive Fortnite Access for 30 Days
According to 9to5Google, the popular video game Fortnit The Battle Royale w Will celebrate his Android debut on the Galaxy Note 9. To make Note 9 even more attractive, Fornite will be exclusive to the phone for the first 30 days. Since the device is supposed to be delivered in late August, this means that other Android devices will not have access to the game until the end of September.
Epic Games will also be giving away $ 100- $ 150 worth of V-Bucks (in-game currency) with all pre-orders. For fans of the game this will be difficult to overtake. According to XDA, the popular Twitch streamer Ninja will be at the event (more on that later) to announce this deal.
XDA also reports that Fortnite Mobile uses Samsung DeX, Samsung's technology that lets you interact with your phone much like a desktop. This will no longer require a dedicated pad or station, and it may work similar to the Huawei desktop mode, which uses only one cable. DeX allows you to connect a mouse and keyboard so that you can destroy the competition with a touch screen.
Speaking of exclusivity, after XDA will Samsung advertise the Galaxy Note 9 as a gaming phone. Samsung has installed a Vapor Chamber heat pipe to support cooling during long gaming sessions. While this is a significant shift from the target market of the previous iteration, you can see how this change in marketing makes sense. With its larger display (see below) and an even larger battery, the Galaxy Note 9 is similar to the only other gaming phone available in the US, the Razer Phone.
In addition, XDA reports that the S Pen will also be integrated into Fortnite. Our guess is that the stylus works just like the right analog stick on the console and controls the aiming. Potentially, the clicker could also work as a way to shoot.
According to @MMDDJ Samsung will again include a display of more than 6 inches The Galaxy Note 9 will be 6.4 inches larger than its predecessor rumors indicate that the resolution remains the same at 2960 x 1440, which equates to a lower PPI than last year (around 514 ppi versus 521 ppi)
As always, Samsung will still have it's most advanced screen Super AMOLED panel. Not known downgrade, we expect at least the same well-regarded screen from its predecessor, which had a peak brightness of 1200 nits and was named by Displaymate as the most powerful smartphone display (until they have checked the screen of the iPhone X). ) We expect Samsung to get back this title from Apple, so expect an even better display this year.
Massive 4,000 mAh battery  With a larger display, there is a n bigger b attery and rumors point out that Samsung does not skim in this section. Contrary to last year's strange decision to include a smaller battery than the Galaxy S8 +, even though Note 8 has the larger display, it is rumored that Note 9 contains a whopping 4,000 mAh of battery
It has been released for two years The Galaxy Note 7 debacle, Samsung feels at ease again to push battery capacity for all-day performance. And to mitigate all your fears, a problem with the Galaxy Note 7 was the limited space that the heat could vent with its large battery. However, the Galaxy Note 9 is longer (6.37 "vs. 0.64"), wider (3.0 "vs. 0.291") and thicker (0.35 "vs. 0.031"), so it seems Samsung has out his past learned mistakes.
Samsung also wants to make wireless charging even better. According to GalaxyClub, there is a FCC application for a new wireless charger that delivers 25.2W of power (12V / 1.2A). Currently, Samsung's fastest Qi charger is only 15W (9V / 1.67A). With 25.2 W, Samsung would bring wireless charging into fast-charging areas and offer more power than OnePlus Dash Charging. With a larger battery, however, it will take longer to charge, so it may be necessary to stop the wireless charging at times similar to its predecessor.
Processor: Snapdragon 845 & Exynos 9810
In our imagination, there is little doubt that the Galaxy Note 9 will rock anything but the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 in the US and South Korea. It will not be considered a flagship without it, and it is unlikely that an Exynos variant will ever make a return to the US shores. The use of this SoC was also confirmed in a Geekbench leak.
As is the tradition, the Exynos model will likely be reserved for non-US grade 9. This is due to the Qualcomm patents on CDMA systems used only by Verizon and Sprint – in other words, we get the smaller processor (even for AT & T and T-Mobile, which do not use CDMA), so all of them Grade 9 models have the same performance on all airlines in the US.
Fingerprint Scanner: Rear Mounted  At first it seemed as if Samsung would incorporate a front-mounted fingerprint sensor that lived under the screen for the Galaxy Note 9, but this idea was probably put back – since the tech is not quite there yet.
Now there are reports that it's likely to have a back-mounted fingerprint scanner, like the Galaxy S9.
Leaks of what the official commercials appear to be show the fingerprint scanner mounted behind the camera. What's disappointing is the shape and size of the scanner, which is a rounded rectangle that barely leaves enough room for your fingertips. Again it seems that Samsung will get the fingerprint scanner wrong.
Bluetooth S-Pen  It seems the S-Pen is also getting an upgrade. The previous iteration of the S-Pen was based on Wacom's licensed technology. According to ExtremeTech, an active on-screen digitizer detected the tip of the pen and measured the force to register a tip. It did not have to be charged, but was limited in his ability.
According to rumors, the new S Pen will use Bluetooth. With Bluetooth, it can now control much more of the phone and expand its user base. XDA was able to uncover firmware for the Galaxy Tab S4 (the upcoming tablet that also uses the S-Pen) and reveal some of the features of the new S-Pen.
According to XDA, the new S-Pen will be able to perform the following functions:
- Control your music
- Act as a camera shutter so you can remove a picture from your phone
- Unlock your phone from the Remote
- Access a selection of apps
- Open a specific app
- Assign One-Press and Double-Press Actions
Android already provides native support for Bluetooth input pens, so it may be possible to use the S-Pen to use on other devices. Unfortunately, you now need to recharge the pen as it requires power and has its own lithium-ion battery. It is possible that the phone will automatically charge the pen, but we have to wait and see on this front.
There is also a new color on the horizon. Apparently Samsung will introduce a copper color in addition to the traditional blue and black. We're not sure if Samsung ties it to a specific region or variants, but we know that a copper color exists.
In addition, the blue version will be the only version with a different colored pen. As you can see (thanks to the leaks of Evan Blass ), the blue option will have a yellow pen while the pens of the other variants will match the color of the phone.
The latest Galaxy Note
Rumor has it that the Galaxy Note 9 could be the last note in the series. According to The Bell, Samsung is considering putting together the Note and S Series in a single compilation, which actually makes Note 10 the S10 +.
That would make sense, since Samsung has already announced a phone with a foldable screen year (although new reports indicate that this will be next year), which more than likely take the note series as the second flagship series becomes. As the S9 + gets closer and closer to the touch series screen, it makes sense to combine them to better segment your products.
Pricing & Availability
Samsung is very methodical in terms of introducing its mobile phones. The new Galaxy Note model will normally be announced in August and released in September to combat Apple's offerings. Samsung announced an event on August 9th to unveil the 9th grade named Galaxy UNPACKED. The livestream will start at 11 o'clock ET and you can see it on Samsung's website.
As For the price we have an idea of its possible cost, and to put it bluntly, the Galaxy Grade 9 will not be cheap. The 8 mark debuted at $ 929, and the Galaxy Note 9 will probably not be much cheaper than that. According to the reliable Leaker Roland Quandt the Galaxy Note 9 base model will start at $ 1,050, so expect a price over $ 1000.
There are even more features with the Galaxy Note 9. Bixby 2.0 A new image sensor called ISOCELL Plus will enhance the camera, a new DeX solution and a new version of Samsung Experience based on Android 8.1 Oreo. The Galaxy Note 9 will be a great upgrade for those who know what they are looking for.
