Samsung was earlier reported to launch its flagship smartphone Galaxy Note 9 in July this year. Now a new report has surfaced online which says that the Galaxy Note 9 launch date has been delayed by two weeks.
A Korean outlet, The Bell, has claimed that Samsung has postponed the launch of Note 9 due to a last-minute design change. Samsung’s Vice Chairman Lee Jan-Yong visited China and tried the Vivo and Oppo handsets. He found the devices very easier to hold as compared to the Galaxy Note series. He then asked his team to reduce the thickness by 0.5mm of the glass that covers the display.
Since earlier rumours suggested the launch of Note 9 on July 29, with this latest development, it is now expected that the smartphone will be announced sometime in August and the sales will start before the end of the month or in early September.
Recently it was reported that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 one variant will come with 8GB RAM and 512GB internal storage. However, earlier rumours have revealed that the Note 9 will come with 6GB RAM and 64/128/256GB internal storage options.
As per earlier reports, the Galaxy Note 9 will sport a large 6.4-inch display with Samsung’s popular infinity display and a screen resolution of 412×846 pixels. It is also rumoured to feature a larger battery and support Bixby 2.0. Reports say that Galaxy Note 9 will have either a 3,850 or 4,000mAh battery. In either case, it will be a larger battery than the Galaxy Note 8 with a 3,300mAh battery.
