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

Samsung will probably unveil the Note 9 on August 9

You can bet money the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will debut on Aug. 9

Samsung is hosting a Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, on August 9 at 11 a.m. ET. Of course it's expected that Samsung will launch something there but so far, there is no confirmation if it will indeed be the Galaxy Tab S4. Judging by both Samsung's invitation graphic, and this video that accompanies the event teaser, the focus for the show will be on S Pen this time around.

Samsung has announced the date for its next Galaxy Unpacked event, where we're expecting to see the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 make its big debut. One significant design change is that the fingerprint sensor is no longer alongside the horizontally positioned dual camera system, it's below the sensors now, as we recently saw in a major render leak.

Connectivity options on the Galaxy J8 include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS/ A-GPS, a Micro-USB port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The firm will be hoping to beat Apple, which releases its iPhones in September, by running the event a few weeks earlier. For the US, China and other select developed regions, the company is expected to pack the Galaxy Note9 with Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 octa-core processor. Galaxy Unpacked events are reserved for the top tier Galaxy smartphones, because the cheaper less-flashy phones aren't given the same levels of praise. Android 8.1 Oreo-based Samsung Experience 9.5 also features smoother animations than the ones supported by the previous iteration of the company's OS implementation, according to the same report. The invitation also appears to hint that the device will come with a new yellow colour.

Samsung should be congratulated for providing this update - not many phones that are over two years old will receive updates like this. He talks about design, functionality, hardware specifications and even discloses some details about the future Galaxy S10 device.

It also shows no fingerprint sensor, although one could be embedded under the screen, and no headphone jack. The Note 8 was launched in September a year ago, for example, and this FCC listing has popped up a month earlier than the Note 8 did at the time.
