Galaxy Note 9 launch expected on August 9 with revamped camera

All eyes are now on Samsung as the company gears up to launch its second flagship smartphone of the year. Much has already been said about the Galaxy Note 9 and the features that it’s expected to bring. A new report claims that the Galaxy Note 9 launch is going to take place in early August and that one of the biggest selling points of the new device will be its revamped camera.

Galaxy Note 9 launch

It’s not surprising to hear that Samsung may be planning to highlight a revamped camera with the Galaxy Note 9, considering the fact that the company introduced its dual camera setup with the Galaxy Note 8 last year which eventually made its way to the Galaxy S9 in 2018.

Citing people familiar with the matter, Bloomberg reports that the Galaxy Note 9 launch will take place on August 9 and that the camera will be one of the main features of the new device. It’s said to look similar to its predecessor and will feature the Snapdragon 845 processor from Qualcomm in markets where Samsung doesn’t ship the Exynos variant.

The Unpacked event for the Galaxy Note 9 launch will reportedly take place two weeks earlier than it did last year. The company is believed to be aiming for a release by the end of August. The plans could shift, though, the report cautions.

The report doesn’t make any groundbreaking revelations to be honest. Samsung was already expected to host the Galaxy Note 9 launch a bit earlier than it did for the Galaxy Note 8 last year. Any major technological advancements such as the in-display fingerprint sensor are now believed to be kept for the Galaxy S10 next year even though it was previously rumored that Samsung might finally introduce it with the Galaxy Note 9 this year.

No word as yet on how much the Galaxy Note 9 is going to cost and precisely when Samsung is going to release it. With August only a couple of months away it won’t be long until we have all of that information.
