Samsung Galaxy Watch to gatecrash the Note 9's August launch event

The biggest difference is apparently the position of the fingerprint sensor that has been moved from the vertical-positioned sensor next to the dual rear camera setup that was featured on the Galaxy Note 8 previous year to a horizontal-oriented sensor.

The photos also suggest that Samsung gave the Galaxy Note 9 the same fingerprint sensor redesign underneath the camera as the Galaxy S9. Interestingly, sources say Samsung isn't anticipating a ton of sales at first, but hopes that being the first to market a foldable device such as this will get at least a few folks excited.

These days the majority of attention is focused either on Apple's 2018 iPhone lineup or Samsung's Galaxy Note 9. It could end up costing more than $1,500 because of the expensive foldable display as well as the bigger battery and more powerful processors required to power the entire device.

Rumors about Samsung's foldable phones have been circulating for years, with the actual release date repeatedly pushed back. As we reported previously, its Korean competitor LG also has plans for such a device. This aligns with a similar report we wrote up in mid-June.

The first lady was also poised and collected while greeting another world leader just days before her encounter with Putin. I've been here not too long, but it's getting close to two years. "I'm not going with high expectations", he said.

So far, however, those predictions haven't held up; Samsung's mythical folding phone still hasn't arrived. To fit in your pocket, Samsung's phone will fold in half "like a wallet".

It could lead to a handset that can easily transform into a tablet - simply by unfolding it.

In one 2017 patent, Samsung detailed a foldable display that would hinge like a flip phone. The two larger models will have this feature with the smaller one to have a sensor on the side of the device.

LG has also filed several patents describing a 'mobile phone with a flexible display which can be folded in half'. Moving to the front of the device, the bezels are still there on the top and the bottom of the device.
