Samsung Galaxy Note 9: Release date, features, and everything we know so far

Stay up to date regarding Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note 9.

We are just about a month away from knowing anything concrete about Samsung's Galaxy Note 9, but that isn't going to stop us from covering the various leaks and rumors leading up to its August 9 launch.

As one of the more business-focused smartphones available, Samsung's Galaxy Note line has a huge following and fanfare, even after that whole battery debacle.

Here's what the rumor mill is currently saying about the next Note:


Samsung set August 9 for its Unpacked event in Brooklyn, NY in what'll be the unveiling of the Galaxy Note 9.


  • Don't expect a design overhaul
  • No fingerprint sensor under the display

Not much is known about the Galaxy Note 9's design quite yet, but thanks to 91Mobiles and Twitter user OnLeaks, we have a good idea of what the Note 9 will look like.
Using factory CADs, they were able to create images that depict what the Note 9 will look like. Beyond the fingerprint sensor moving to below the dual camera, there's not that big of a change compared to the Note 8.

Rumors had gone back and forth regarding Samsung using a fingerprint sensor embedded into the Note 9's display, and right now, the current consensus is that it's not going to happen.


Could come with a bigger battery
Samsung has confirmed Bixby 2.0 is coming
Big update to the S Pen
Twitter user Ice Universe, who has a proven record when it comes to leaking Samsung products, claimed the Galaxy Note 9 will boast a bigger battery.

One thing we do know for certain is that Samsung plans to launch Bixby 2.0, its voice assistant, alongside the Galaxy Note 9.

The event invite shows what appears to be a yellow edge with a button in the middle. It turns out, the yellow item in the photo is the Note's infamous S Pen as was revealed in a video that has since been removed.

Besides potentially hinting at a new color for the Note lineup, Ice Universe has stated the S Pen will have Bluetooth connectivity for the first time. With the added connection, Samsung can use the pen for functions such as a remote shutter for the camera app, and presumably better accuracy for writing on the Note 9's display.
