Samsung, one of the largest smartphone companies in the world, is ready to announce their latest device. Aside from the S family, the Note series has been one of the company’s most powerful devices. Despite the setback with the explosive Note 7, the others were pretty successful.
Official announcement date
Now, it’s official – Samsung announced an Unpacked event for the 9th of August. And from the teaser image and teaser video (linked below), we’re sure the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is going to see the light of day. Both teasers showcase the S-pen in a new bright yellow-gold color, suggesting a new color option for the device. However, the device was expected even without the announcement. Past Note devices have been revealed in the second half of the year, with the last one being shown in late August. On the other hand, official FCC fillings have successfully passed, confirming that it would be launched soon.
What can you expect
Some rumors suggest that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will come equipped with the latest flagship hardware. That means the Snapdragon 845 processor, 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Some even suggested that it would be the first Samsung device to feature a fingerprint sensor under the display. But, these are all just rumors. Therefore, you should take them with a grain of salt.
Bluetooth in the S-pen?
However, what’s definitely not a rumor is that the S-pen is going to get a small update – Bluetooth. A filling in the FCC suggests that, and there could be some possible reasons for that. Some suggest that it could be used as a remote to control the device, like change music or activate the camera shutter. Next, it could act as a security measure for the pen, making you less likely to lose it. The Bluetooth module could send a notification to the device, reminding you that you’re walking away from it, or that it’s not inside the device. Whichever the purpose, it means that it must have some kind of a battery inside. But, knowing that the pen will sit most of the time inside the device, you’re probably not going to have any battery drain problems.
It all remains to be seen though, on the 9th of August. Save the date.
