It’s the next big Android smartphone to release, and it’ll be here next month. It means the new Galaxy Note phablet will arrive earlier than previous years – we’re used to late August for the announcement.
New Note devices are always big news because it’s an Android phone with a large screen, handy S Pen and a heap of power, although rumors of an in-screen fingerprint sensor may be premature, especially as it’s now due to arrive earlier than expected.
Update: Numerous new renders give us a close look at the Note 9 in a range of colors. Plus, the 512GB model might hit the UK, the phone might have a super-powered Exynos 9820 chipset, we’ve heard more about the upgraded S Pen features and the phone has even seemingly been unboxed.
Instead, we’re likely to see Bixby 2.0 and an improved dual-lens camera, maybe one with the HDR video recording left out of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus, but a feature being touted by recent LG and Sony phones.
We’re sorting through the rumors and leaks (there are a lot of them) daily, and to do that we’ve gotten out our trusty S Pen stylus ready to declare which are plausible, and which are just wishful thinking.
It seems Samsung has even got a little excited, publishing the framework for support pages of a device with the model ID of SM-N960F/DS – which is expected to be the Note 9 – in Finland, Norway, France and Denmark .
Here’s everything we know about Samsung’s extra-big Android phone so far.
