Samsung Galaxy Note9 could be launched earlier than expected, courtesy Galaxy S9

Andrew Hoyle  CNET

Samsung Galaxy S9+ (64GB variant) is available for a down payment of Rs 9,900 as well and subsequent 24 monthly instalments of Rs 2,799. Now, as per the new reports, the smartphone could get launched earlier than planned. We're now talking about the Galaxy Note 9, which could launch as early as July. The Investor only mentions the screen size of the handset, which measures 6.38 inches, or 0.06 inches bigger than the Note 8's screen.

Samsung has preponed the launch of Note series smartphone in the past and thus it won't be surprising if it does it again with Note 9. This Cupertino-based tech giant is expected to release three new iPhones later in September, and, an early release of the Galaxy Note9 should give Samsung some profitable sales figures until the iPhones hit the shelves. Ultimately, it's a feature we'd rather have on our phone than not.

With model number SM-N960U, the alleged Geekbench listing reveals the presence of a Snapdragon 845 processor for units shipped within the US. Samsung has priced the 128GB variant at Rs.61,900 while the 256GB variant costs Rs.65,900. But earlier this year, we heard that Samsung was committed to leaving FM hardware unlocked and accessible for its upcoming phones in the USA and Canada. But that's quite common for all Samsung flagships as they never arrive with latest version of Android due to extensive nature of its customisation. It's not clear if the Galaxy Note 9 will follow the same path or offer something truly different. The Galaxy Note 7 is one such example, but we all know how that turned out.

It is also reported that the Note 9's fingerprint sensor may not be embedded into the phone's display, which will disappoint a lot of Note series fans.
