Samsung event scheduled for August 9th, Galaxy Note 9 announcement likely


The date for Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9 reveal has been set.

Samsung has announced an Unpacked event for August 9th. The event will take place in New York City, but it’ll also be livestreamed on Samsung’s website for everyone to see.

This event is very likely for the Galaxy Note 9. Not only does the timing line up with previous Galaxy Note flagship announcements, but Samsung’s teaser for the event appears to show an S Pen stylus, which is one thing that Samsung’s Galaxy Note phones are known for.

Spec details for the Galaxy Note 9 are still fairly light, but it’s likely that a Snapdragon 845 will be included. Rumors have also suggested that a 4000mAh battery will power the Note 9 and that Samsung will also focus on camera upgrades with the device.

We’ll have to wait until August 9th before we get more info on the Galaxy Note 9 and its release, but it’s very likely that the new Note will make its way to T-Mobile. T-Mo has sold many of Samsung’s flagship smartphones in the past, including Galaxy Note devices, so it’d be a surprise if that changed with the Note 9.

What features do you want to see included with the Galaxy Note 9?

    Doubt it will happen, but it would be dope if they released that color. Smartphone colors have been fairly stagnant (read: boring) over the last few years for the most part. It’d be nice to see some different things out there. I’m sure a lot of people wouldn’t, but I would definitely consider this versus the run-of-the-mill black or gray.

      Agreed. Love phones that come in uncommon colors, and a yellow Galaxy Note 9 would be awesome.

    I’d like to see the camera go back to a 1.7 aperture lens. The 1.5 on the S9 lets in way too much light at times and makes the photos look overexposed. Also they need to do something about the OIS sensor cause on my S9 cause you REALLY have to be standing still to catch photos at times.

    I would love to see dual speakers, bigger battery, a change in the sharpness and detail of camera photos, and a fingerprint scanner under the screen. Also, LTE Bands 71 and 48 included.

      1. Dual speakers are all but guaranteed since the S9 family has them.

      2. All the rumor reports are coming in from 3,850mAh to 4,000mAh, so I’d say there’s a good chance you’ll get your wish here too.

      3. Samsung is known for the sharpness of their photos, so I doubt that will change. Not sure what you mean by detail though.

      4. They’ve already said no to a fingerprint scanner under the screen.

      5. Band 71 is a guarantee. I think 48 is unlikely.

      Dual Speakers, Check.
      Bigger battery, 4000mAh, check
      I’m with g2a5b0e on the picture thing.
      No fingerprint scanner under the screen. That’s for S10. In fact, it’s rumored they’re ditching iris for the apple face thing too.
      Scanner will be relocated to middle of device right under camera, but camera layout will be the same. (right to left).
      Both bands will be included.
      Oh yeah, rumored base memory jump, 128GB

    What I’m hoping for is they give the memory options UPON RELEASE OF THE DEVICE!!!!! NOT 40 MONTHS FROM THEN.

    Any thoughts on a reveal of the Galaxy S9 Active at this event?
