“Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy Note 9 in the month of August”
Samsung’s upcoming Note series flagship has already leaked by 3D renders and 360-degree video, but a recent leak also revealed an additional physical button on the device. Considering the position of the button, it was being speculated that it might actually be a camera shutter key. Now, a new information from Korea confirms that it’s indeed likely to be a multifunctional shutter button.
According to the latest report, the South Korean giant has recently filed a trademark for a technology called ‘Perfect Capture’. If this technology indeed finds its way to the upcoming Galaxy Note 9, we can expect the shutter button to launch the camera app and also adjust focus using the same. The report also claims that the new button will also let users capture videos as well as screenshots. If this turns out to be true, we can expect the brand to focus upon imaging prowess of the forthcoming flagship with possibly an upgrade to the dual aperture primary shooter accompanied by a secondary camera module, which we’ve seen on the Samsung Galaxy S9+ (review). However, at this juncture, it’s advisable to take this bit of information with a pinch of salt.
To recap on the rumoured specs, the Galaxy Note 9 is expected to come with a QHD+ display with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio. The smartphone might come powered by the top-end Samsung Exynos 9810 or Snapdragon 845 chipset, depending upon the region. The processor is further rumoured to be mated to 6GB RAM and 256GB of native storage. On the software front, the handset is expected to boot a re-designed interface atop Android, dubbed Crown UX. A recent leak also claimed that the Note 9 will come powered by a bigger 4,000mAh battery.
The Chaebol is expected to launch the flagship on August 9th. We will bring you more updates as and when they turn up, so stay tuned.
