Further details about Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9 emerge, including some fancy colours

Further details about Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9 emerge, including some fancy colours

A source with a respectable track record has leaked what appears to be promotional material for the Galaxy Note 9.

Something that isn't present on the Galaxy Note 9 is the dreaded notch, Samsung has thankfully avoided following this most annoying design trend.




That's because the invite and Twitter posting thereof showed a bright yellow S Pen. The report cites that due to slow Galaxy S9 sales, Samsung is supposedly planning to start sales for its new flagship on August 24 instead of August 31. The leaked poster further reveals a purple colour version of the alleged Galaxy Note 9 with an S Pen stylus in gold colourway placed on top. The S Pen is expected to feature Bluetooth, letting it act as a wireless remote controller for the camera shutter and other functions.

The image also confirms that Samsung has retained the horizontal setup for the dual camera at the back. Granted, that's for one with 128 GB of storage, but considering the Galaxy Note 8 with the same configuration was just around $900, that's still a pretty big price hike. Samsung particularly markets its Note handsets to users who want a device that can help them work on the go. As we get closer to Samsung's Unpacked press conference on August 9th, we're bound to see even more Note 9 leaks... like this one.
