The Note 9 launches August 9—here’s what to expect
We now know the date of the Galaxy Note 9 announcement. Samsung sent out invites to "Samsung Galaxy UNPACKED 2018" on August 9 and a teaser image showing the Note line's trademark S-Pen. This year, the show will be at the Barclays Center in New York City, the home of the NBA's Brooklyn Nets and the NHL's New York Islanders.
There isn't a huge amount of rumors out there about the Galaxy Note 9. If past Note devices are any indication, the Note 9 will be very close to the latest Galaxy S9+, just with a slightly larger screen and battery, a squared-off design, an S-Pen, and some new camera tech. Sure enough, a report from Bloomberg earlier this month said the Note 9 "will look similar to last year’s model" and have "an upgraded camera." Samsung just announced a new "Isocell Plus" camera sensor, which it says can "capture more light, significantly increasing light sensitivity and color fidelity." There's a good chance it will end up in the Note 9.
