It's August, which means two things: many tweets bemoaning the imminent end of summer (there's still enough time to enjoy the sun, friends!), And a new Samsung Galaxy Note device, in this case, the Galaxy Note 9, which Samsung is expected to announce on August 9 at its Galaxy Unpacked event.
Samsung officially will announce Note 9 on Thursday, although it seems that almost all the details of the phone have leaked at this point, including several details that have come directly from Samsung. This is what we hope to see:
Galaxy Note 9
The star of the show on Thursday will become the last flagship equipped with the Samsung stylus, the Galaxy Note 9. Like the Galaxy S9 this year , Note 9 is expected to be an incremental update of Note 8 last year, maintaining approximately the same design when adding new improvements and improvements. Things like the dual camera system, the rear fingerprint sensor (albeit in a tight position) and the iris scanner, with Samsung focusing specifically on some areas to improve, are the following:
Plugin S updated: I would not It will not be a new note without a new S Pen, and Samsung is causing some pretty big improvements for this year's model. A boost to accuracy and sensitivity seems like a safe bet, but big changes could come in the addition of Bluetooth to the touch pen, allowing it to be used as a remote control.
More battery life: According to Samsung teasers for note 9, the battery life will be a great attraction for the phone. Rumors suggest that the Note 9 could have a 4,000 mAh battery, about 14 percent larger than the 3,500 mAh found in the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7 (as well as the smaller 3,300 mAh battery in Note 8 last year). ). That's room for a lot of battery life, assuming that Samsung really learned the lesson from Note 7.
More storage: Also leaked in Samsung's promotional video, the Note 9 will come with up to 512GB of on-board storage, which, when combined with a 512 GB microSD card (the largest currently on the market), means that users will be able to pack a full terabyte of storage in their phones. Just do not expect to get that amount of cheap storage: the 512 GB version alone will be expensive, and that's before taking into account another $ 350 or more for a 512 GB card.
Best cameras: Since this is a new Samsung smartphone, I hope there are some improvements in the camera, with a possible upgrade to the double-opening system that Samsung introduced with the Galaxy S9.
Faster Speeds: Like the previous Galaxy S9, the Note 9 will likely include an update to Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 845 processor, along with the chip maker's newest (and fastest) modem.
Fortnite : In case you've lived under a rock this year, Fortnite is the biggest game in the world, and the long-awaited Android port can be an exclusive moment for Galaxy Note 9, if the rumors are true.
However, Note 9 is not the only thing that Samsung planned for Thursday. It seems that the company has a new smart watch running: the Galaxy Watch, which seems to be moving away from the "Gear" naming scheme that Samsung has used in recent years and instead switch to the best known Galaxy brand that is go on Samsung smartphones and tablets.
It does not seem that the change of name means big changes for the clock. Users who are hopeful that the Galaxy name may mean a return to the Google camp for the Android-based Wear operating system may be disappointed: rumors say the Galaxy Watch will continue to work with Tizen, like other Samsung smart watches.
Bixby is probably adding, so at least you have to wait?
Wireless Charger Duo
Another product that has been confirmed is essentially a new Samsung wireless charger, capable of charging two devices at once, apparently perfect for charging, say, a Galaxy Note 9 and a Galaxy Watch?
An intelligent loudspeaker powered by Bixby
Finally, we come to something that not was completely filtered: the rumored Bixby smart speaker, which is rumored for a long time from Samsung, to face competitors such as Amazon's Alexa, Google Home and Apple's HomePod. The company has confirmed before that the device is in process, and a recent report from of the Wall Street Journal stated that Samsung could be looking to announce it this month for $ 300.
Could the event on Thursday see the great entrance of Bixby in our living rooms? And, in any case, does it have anything to do with the MagBee trademark (magnetic beetle, no, really) from Samsung?
