Samsung Galaxy Note 9 to be launched earlier than expected


With the recent revelation that the much-anticipated Samsung Galaxy X isn't going to be the long-rumored folding and flexible OLED phone, but instead a phone which focuses on gaming, many have been left scratching their heads about what's going on.

By eliminating the need for docking the Galaxy Note 9, customers will be able to save up money which they can invest in purchasing the upcoming flagship, which is already expected to sport a ludicrous price tag. This one seems to confirm earlier rumors that the new smartphone will have improved battery life.

The Galaxy Note 9 - and possibly some other goodies - will be unveiled at 1am on August 10th AEST in NY.

It's unclear as yet what device Samsung will be unveiling through this video preview.

Let's all get looney about the best lunar eclipse in 100 years
The fact that the moon appears so small and takes longer to pass through Earth's shadow is also why the eclipse lasts longer. Thousands of people will be able to see the total eclipse when the full moon slips into the Earth's shadow .

The rear camera will have two lenses with optical image stabilization support, with Samsung adding new AI feature to optimize photos depending on the subject. It is said to come with a 6.4-inch Wide Quad High Definition (WQHD) screen with 18.5:9 aspect ratio, thinner bezels resulting in more than 85 percent screen-to-body ratio. It also remains to be seen how the display actually functions.

On the other hand, Samsung phones headed towards India and Russian Federation, among other global markets will house an Exynos 9820 octa-core processor. Is the phone a mix of both?

We're just two weeks out from the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and Samsung is really ramping up their teasing for the event with a series of new teaser videos. As well as a protective case which also doubles as a stand for the Galaxy Note 9, shown in black and grey. Apart from getting an upgraded S-Pen, looks like there is something else to look forward to from the imminent launch. It'll also reportedly have 128GB of storage space and 6GB of RAM, making it the most powerful Samsung mobile device yet. Not quite enough to make up for the several-months head-start given to iOS users in the game, but still.
