Launch date is August 9, it’s the next big Android smartphone to release, and it’ll be here next month. It means the new Galaxy Note phablet will arrive earlier than previous years – we’re used to late August for the announcement.

The Galaxy Note 8 retailed for $929 (£869, AU$1,499) at launch and we can’t see Samsung lowering the price for the Note 9, especially now Apple has pushed smartphone prices even higher with its iPhone X.

Big phone, little design change
The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 should get some big updates over the Galaxy Note 8, but as far as design goes don’t expect too much change from the phablet it’s replacing. In fact, a leaked render showing the front of the phone suggests there might not be any changes at all (at least from the front) with all the buttons, sensors and everything else matching the Note 8. An image focused on the bottom edge of the phone, which appears to be official marketing for the handset, also shows a design that’s more or less identical to the Note 8, with the USB-C port, headphone jack and S Pen slot all present and correct. Though the image also shows the S Pen in a striking new yellow color, so that’s one aspect that might have had a makeover.
