Samsung Galaxy Note 9: Six Important Features To Expect

Why is Samsung launching its devices ahead of schedule? According to The Korea Herald's report, it's to release an entirely new Galaxy phone series the public wants; the foldable "Galaxy X". Samsung Galaxy A6 and A6+ are expected to feature a similar spec-sheet with differences in display size, battery and rear camera.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 scored better than the iPhone X in Consumer Reports' smartphone rankings, but the iPhone X was the best-selling smartphone in the first quarter.

Display suppliers have reportedly started mass production of the 6.38-inch Super AMOLED display that will be used in the Galaxy Note 9. Another key point to note is that even though the back is plastic, we have been told by a source that it won't be removable so any hopes that you had of carrying around a spare battery with the Galaxy J6 have been dashed. Furthermore, production of the revolutionary foldable OLED display will begin in November of this year, enough time for the release in mid 2019.

The handset's under-screen fingerprint sensor, the report claims, is now being developed by Qualcomm and Synaptics in the USA, and Aegis Tech in Taiwan.

After getting listed on Geekbench as the SM-J260G, the smartphone was recently also spotted filing trademark application with the Korean Intellectual Property Office, and rumoured to be called the Galaxy J2 Core Now, a new report claims that the smartphone is Samsung's efforts to make its mark in the entry-level Indian smartphone market. Further details about this feature remain vague, but it likely will offer iPhone X-style face-unlock functionality, improving on Samsung's current, and somewhat lacklustre iris-scanning solution.

With the Galaxy S10 to be announced at CES 2019, the Galaxy X will take the spot that will open up at MWC 2019 in late February next year. The phone is heavily expected to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor paired with 6GB RAM.
