Samsung is just weeks away from launching its Galaxy Note 9 smartphone, which will serve as the company's ultimate flagship for 2018. However, could this be the end of the line for the long-running Galaxy Note series? It's possible according to a new report coming out of South Korea. As we all know, the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note families have been increasingly meeting parity with regards to features. And when looking at the Galaxy S8+ and Galaxy Note 8 (and the Galaxy S9+ compared to the incoming Galaxy Note 9), there is very little to distinguish the two other than the inclusion of the...

The launch of Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note 9 flagship is just two weeks away, which means that we can expect for leaks to start ramping up as a result. Thankfully, we have two fresh leaks to report on, and they both give us a clearer look at the device in question. The first comes from notorious gadget leaker Evan Blass, who appears to have gotten his hands on a press render of the Galaxy Note 9. The image shows the smartphone from both the back and the front, confirming the dual-camera setup on the back and the repositioned fingerprint sensor (which is now mounted centrally beneath...

Samsung Galaxy Note fans have a lot to look forward to with the Note 9 that's incoming next month. We saw some leaked benchmarks turn up in late May and in those benchmarks the device was running an Exynos 9810 SoC but that's presumably for the non-US version of the device. More benchmarks have leaked and this time, the leak claims that the Note 9 in this run was powered by an even faster Exynos 9820 SoC. The new leak shows a device carrying the Samsung SM-N960X designation. It scores a whopping 4,089 in the single core test and 12,246 for a multi-core score. These scores absolutely crush...

The supposed leaks related to Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note 9 handset are piling up. Whether they are actual leaks or part of a controlled campaign by Samsung to drum up excitement and generate buzz is up for debate. Either way, several of them point to the Galaxy Note 9 having an S Pen with Bluetooth support, including a 'leaked' poster. Assuming the poster is legitimate, this is the first official shot of the Galaxy Note 9 from top to bottom, though only from the backside, and at angle. The Bluetooth-enabled S Pen rests on top and is shown in its entirety. As depicted, the S Pen in this latest... Read more...
We hope that you like the look of the Galaxy Note 8, because it seems as though it will be more of the same when the Galaxy Note 9 launches early next month. Like the transition from the Galaxy S8 to the Galaxy S9, there are very little design changes to speak of with the Galaxy Note 9 according to a new image leak. You'd have to pull out a magnifying glass to spot any real changes, and it appears that the hardware in the top bezel (cameras, sensors, etc.) is identical. About the only noticeable change that we can tell is a slightly smaller bottom chin/bezel. As we saw in earlier... Read more...
Usually when Samsung releases a new flagship phone, most of the attention is focused on the raw performance upgrades and camera improvements. When the Galaxy Note 9 arrives, however, expect a fair amount of hype on the S Pen. Samsung teased as much when it sent out a closeup shot of the upcoming S Pen in a recent press invite, and now it's rumored the S Pen will introduce a brand new functionality. Prominent tipster Ice Universe indicated on Twitter that the Galaxy Note 9's S Pen will feature Bluetooth support, thus enabling it to do things unrelated to the pen, such as using it to control music....

We have an official launch date for Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note 9 flagship: August 9th. It's on that date that the smartphone will be revealed to all at a Galaxy UNPACKED event in Brooklyn, New York. Today, however, fresh details about the device are starting to float to the surface. We already know that the Galaxy Note 9 will feature Samsung's own Exynos 9810 processor for global markets, while Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 will in use for U.S. and Chinese markets. It's now understood that base phones will come with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Given the price that the Galaxy... Read more...
The date is set in stone for Samsung's next flagship smartphone launch. The South Korean electronics giant announced today that the Galaxy Note 9 will debut on August 9th at an UNPACKED event held in Brooklyn, New York. The early August unveil was first mentioned in a report earlier this month. For comparison, the Galaxy Note 8 was first shown to the public on August 23rd 2017, while the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7 made its presence known on August 2nd 2016. The invitation that we received seems to show the Galaxy Note 9's new S Pen, and nothing else. Gadget leaker Ice... Read more...
Samsung is set to unveil the next entry in its long-running Galaxy Note family in early August. We have a good general idea of what kind of hardware will be included on the flagship smartphone, but a fresh leak claims that at least one spec will far surpass its predecessor. Gadget leaker Ice Universe reports that the Galaxy Note 9 will come packing a massive 4,000 mAh battery inside its spacious chassis. For comparison, the current-generation Galaxy Note 8 "only” has a 3,300 mAh battery. This should result in a pretty significant uptick in battery life given the power efficiency... Read more...
We now have a pretty good idea of what the final design of Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note 9 will look like when it is officially unveiled. Steve Hemmerstoffer, a notorious leaker that some people know better as @OnLeaks, his Twitter handle, posted an official looking render of the upcoming phablet that is based upon Samsung's factory CAD files for the device. Assuming the CAD file are legitimate, the renders depict what it will actually look like. Steve has a very favorable history when it comes to leaked information—he and Evan Blass (@evleaks) seem to be plugged into the pre-release scene... Read more...
If you are a fan of Samsung's Galaxy Note series, you are in for a treat this summer. The next model in the Galaxy Note line, the Galaxy Note 9, is reportedly set to debut in early August at Samsung's Unpacked event in New York, and will include several upgrades over its predecessor. It will of course wield a faster processor, but also a better Bixby experience and improved camera performance. To start with, it's rumored the Galaxy Note 9 will have an even bigger display, this time checking in at 6.38 inches versus a slightly smaller 6.32-inch display on the Galaxy Note 8. There's also been talk... Read more...
The Galaxy Note 9 hasn't launched yet, but we already know quite a bit about the smartphone thanks to several leaks. The first leak saw the Snapdragon 845 flavor show up on Geekbench with a score of 2190 for single-core and 8806 for multi-core performance. The second leak was again on Geekbench and showed that Samsung had likely done some optimizing when the same Snapdragon 845 SoC leaked with a 2411 single-core and 8712 multi-core score. Another leak has happened with Geekbench again seeing details of the Galaxy Note 9 published, but this time out the scores are for the Exynos 9810 version of... Read more...
Samsung's mainline Galaxy S series of smartphones is without question one of the strongest selling smartphone brands on the planet, but the company's Galaxy Note line is also extremely popular. The Galaxy Note is truly a mobile productivity powerhouse and includes a handy stylus for whenever you need to take notes. It has in fact cultivated a dedicated following in its own right.  Interestingly enough, the Galaxy Note 9 has succumbed to not one, but two Geekbench leaks, with the second giving us a hint that Samsung will be able to eke a little bit more out of the single-threaded performance....

Digital assistants have become a standard feature of practically every smartphone around these days, and are such a big deal that Samsung created its own version in Bixby. Looking ahead, Samsung is planning to roll out an upgraded version of its artificial intelligence platform, Bixby 2.0, and it will reportedly arrive alongside the Galaxy Note 9 sometime in the second half of this year (presumably in the fall). Samsung talked about Bixby 2.0 during a recent press conference that was focused on its vision for AI. The plan for Bixby 2.0 is to inject more natural language processes, along with improved...
