Here's (Almost) Everything You Need to Know About the Galaxy Note 9

On Thursday the South Korean tech giant is holding an Unpacked event in Brooklyn, New York where the Galaxy Note 9 is expected to be revealed. Samsung's S9 and S9+ from earlier this year looked nearly exactly like the previous-generation models, and they didn't offer any compelling new features.

Now, the question is whether or not Samsung's bad year is about to become worse.

Likewise the top front appears to have the same number of cameras and sensors as the old Note 8 if the Sentinel Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Case and Glass Screen Protector is any guide.

However, you might get some choice as to what comes with your Note 9, as Reddit user Wan997 claims it will be packaged with a choice of those AKG headphones, a Fortnite gaming package, or both for an extra $99 (around £75/AU$135).

According to the source the S Pen will double as a remote shutter for the Galaxy Note9 camera (not new), a double press on the S Pen button will switch between front and back cameras and the S Pen will be rechargeable with 40 seconds of charge delivering up to 30 minutes of use. In fact, the S9 and S9+ received an unprecedented price cut less than a month after they launched in the US.

Images Quandt published also showed the Note 9 in its four alleged colour schemes - Midnight Black, Metallic Copper, Ocean Blue and Lilac Purple. While in DEX mode you'll be able to scribble notes on the Galaxy Note9's display.

Meanwhile, a new report has hinted at the features of the S Pen stylus that will arrive with the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. Before you get too excited, this Value Pack could be just a review unit for bloggers. It is doubtful Samsung will change that strategy anytime soon.

Now, we've learned of yet another costly launch promotion that will run alongside the Galaxy Note 9's release.

And they even have some news on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Watch, noting that it will come in 46mm and 42mm sizes, with the larger model lasting up to 7 days and having a similar footprint to the Samsung Gear Sport. For selfies, the phone will offer an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera.
