Samsung could announce the Galaxy Note 9 on August 9, which, if true, would be two weeks earlier than when the Note 8 was announced last year.
The report comes from Bloomberg, which adds that Samsung intends to launch the phone in late August. If so, Samsung would have the opportunity to start with the iPhone models reported this year. Last year, Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 8 on sale shortly after Apple introduced the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X, ostensibly as a way to steal part of Apple's potential consumer base.
Samsung Galaxy Note 9 announcement  In fact, Samsung planned to announce the Galaxy Note 9 well before August, according to the report, but was delayed due to last-minute changes, according to separate reports.
It is unclear how dramatically changed the Galaxy Note 9 would be from its predecessor, but Bloomberg notes that Samsung plans to highlight the enhanced capabilities of the phone's camera. That probably means the phone will have the variable aperture feature that debuted on the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus earlier this year. The feature, for the uninitiated, allows the phone to switch between two aperture modes, which is supposed to help capture more light in low-light situations.
Specifications of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9
The phone will also come with a new Qualcomm The Snapdragon processor, which is the pair for the course of a 2018 flagship phone. Beyond this, information on the rest of its specifications is currently in the air, but this is a Galaxy Note phone, so expect a premium device from start to finish. An AMOLED screen is practically a shoo-in, in addition to a fingerprint scanner. Some reports say, however, that Samsung is working on a fingerprint detection technology on the screen, but it is unclear if it will debut on the Galaxy Note 9. A report in March said no.
According to reports, the RAM to be from 6 to 8 GB, and there will be a storage option of 512 GB.
That said, Bloomberg says the plans can still change around the announcement date. As The Verge notes, Samsung has introduced new Galaxy Note models in early or mid-August in the past, so the rumored calendar for Note's next flagship is not too far-fetched. Still, one should take all these rumors with a grain of salt.
