“The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is expected to feature a 6.3-inch Infinity Display and Snapdragon 845 SoC”
Last year, it was revealed that Samsung was working on Galaxy Note 9 under the codename “Crown”. It was speculated that the upcoming Note series device would be the first for the brand to come with an under-display fingerprint scanner. However, the latest reports suggest that the brand might give the feature a skip for the upcoming Note series device after all.
According to the reports, while the South Korean tech giant has been looking at under-display fingerprint sensors from various companies over the last couple of years, technical difficulties have prevented the brand from commercialising the tech. According to industry sources, Samsung will be able to finally incorporate the technology in its flagship devices only next year. Therefore, it is believed that this year’s Galaxy Note 9 will come with a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner located below camera module, just like the upcoming Galaxy S9 and S9+, which are slated to be unveiled at an event on February 25th at MWC 2018 in Barcelona, Spain.
Speaking of the Galaxy S9 duo, they will draw power from the Snapdragon 845 or Exynos 9810 SoC – depending on the market. The Galaxy S9 will come in a 4GB + 64GB configuration and Galaxy S9+ is expected to come with a 6GB + 128GB setup. The Galaxy S9 and S9+ are also expected to sport 12-megapixel snappers with a variable aperture feature. There will be an additional 12-megapixel camera accompanying the primary camera on Galaxy S9+. As for the display, the Galaxy S9 will ship with a 5.8-inch panel, whereas, the Galaxy S9+ will flaunt a 6.2-inch screen.
After the launch of Galaxy S9 Duo on February 25th, the next flagship to arrive would be the Galaxy Note 9. The mass production of the Galaxy Note 9 is slated to begin in June as per reports.
