Samsung Galaxy Note 9 - Release Date

The official release data of Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is August 9th, 2018, after Samsung sent an invitation on June 27th. And the unveiling will start at 11am EST (8am Pacific Standard Time, 4pm British Summer Time) in Brooklyn, New York.

This will be the next big announcement for Android smartphones and it will be released next month. We used to announcing the new Galaxy Note tablet at the end of August, but Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will be released in early August - it is two weeks earlier in this year than usual, saying Galaxy Note 8.

Usually, Samsung Galaxy Note devices will land in stores a few weeks after it is released, which is before or around the time when Apple launches its next iPhones in September. It is believed that it helps Samsung get more confidence from customers, and this year is likely to be the same comparing with previous ones.

Besides, a report at ET News indicates that August 24 will be the global release date and reservations will be open sometime in mid-August. However, we will not know this information for sure until Samsung announces it on August 9.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 - Price

According to a WinFuture report, the Galaxy Note 9 will be priced starting at €1,050 (£935), which will give you a 128GB variant. According to reports, the highest specification of the 512GB model is priced at 1,250 euros (1,115 pounds). And Samsung might not release its 64GB model in Europe.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 - Color

From Evan Blass's Twitter, it can be predictable that Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has 3 colors: black, blue and brown. The the proposed lilac model can't be seen, so it's unclear whether this version will be available at the time of release.

This seemingly legitimate leak, although not providing much new information, seems to confirm that the blue model will be equipped with a contrasting yellow S-Pen, while the black and brown models will be equipped with a matching stylus.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 - Battery

Samsung has released a new trailer video as below, which seems to confirm the rumors that Galaxy Note 9 will be equipped with a souped-up battery. This clip contains clearly a shot from rival Apple, showing how frustrating it is when your battery runs out and promising that Samsung's upcoming flagship product will save the day.

If the online noise can be believed, the Galaxy Note 9 will be equipped with a 4,000mAh battery, which is 20% higher than the Galaxy Note 8's 3,300mAh. It is the largest one in the history of Samsung smartphones.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 - Design

Actually, there is nothing major change in design. Although there are reports showing that the screen glass is relatively thin, it is expected that the chassis will increase slightly. It is 0.2 mm thicker than Note 8 and 1.3 mm wide, which can accommodate larger screens and higher capacity batteries, which also makes it a bit heavier, as confirmed by the first Note 9 actual review. The height reduction of 1.1 mm means that the top and bottom borders are further reduced, but both will remain (don't believe that Samsung will give up the bottom bezel).
