Samsung is used to trademarking the name for its new devices in Columbia. Following that convention that has seen the likes of Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S9/ S9+ get their names in that location, we can now confirm that the next device in the Samsung Note series will be named Galaxy Note 9.
According to the registration information, there is neither an indication of the specs or price of this unit, but having the name is just aa good place to start the leak party from.
Just like the successors of the upcoming Note, rumours have pointed to Q3 of this year as its possible launch time. Picking a month, we would be looking at either of August or September. Among the rumoured specs is an Infinity Display that will pack QHD+ technology.
Quite frankly, we don’t think that’s very much of a stretch. The Galaxy S8/ S8+ and Galaxy S9/ S9+ also have Infinity Display on very high definition screens, so we don’t see why the Note 9 shouldn’t.
The reports that bring these rumours indicate however that users should not expect an on-screen fingerprint reader. Apparently, Samsung still has a long way to go before they bring that feature to the market with the level of quality they want.
What we will be getting, instead, a device that will run on either the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 (for European and US markets) or Exynos 9810 (for other markets). 6GB RAM should be the least expected while there would be an internal memory configuration of 64GB, 128GB and 256GB.
Finally, there would be a 12MP dual camera on the back. Everything is expected to be powered by a 3300mAh battery.
Of course, all of these should be taken with a pinch of salt until we find out more officially.
