Galaxy Note 9 launch date: when the re-imagined S Pen arrives

Galaxy Note 9 launch date: when the re-imagined S Pen arrives

Also, the fact that Ice Universe, a well-known Samsung leaker, posted it on Twitter is one more reason to trust it.

It's no longer a secret when Samsung plans to "Unbox" the Galaxy Note 9. Two such changes on the Galaxy Note 9 are a horizontal rear camera setup with the fingerprint sensor placed under it.

While we've heard that Samsung is prepping bolder colors for this year's Note, we weren't expecting such a move. From left to right, we've got the S Pen slot, speaker grille, microphone, USB-C charging port, and 3.5mm headphone jack - no, Samsung isn't about to get courageous anytime soon. The company is expected to introduce this feature on the Galaxy Note 9 and expand the role of the S-Pen. A recent image leak also showed Samsung ditching physical buttons in favor of on-screen navigation buttons.

As for the specifications, previous reports have revealed the upcoming Galaxy Note 9 to feature a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with 18.5:9 aspect ratio.

If you're in search of a brand new Android flagship this fall, the Note 9 should make your shortlist. This is reportedly due to battery considerations. Samsung particularly markets its Note handsets to users who want a device that can help them work on the go.

So far we've seen from the official teaser video that the one of the Galaxy Note 9 models will come with a yellow/gold S-Pen, while regulatory filings supposedly revealed a number of colours the phone may come in.
