Samsung's Smartphone Market Share in China's Inches Up

An improved Bixby 2.0 is also likely debut with the Note 9, to give users a more streamlined experience. While the current Samsung Galaxy devices already have microSD card slots to expand the memory, it would be quicker and easier to store the huge files directly into the built-in storage, instead of having them manually transferred to an external memory card. Recall, Galaxy S9 was called up to the release of Star and Galaxy S8 - Dream. Key sources also indicate that Galaxy Note 9 firmware development is already underway, with two seperate firmware builds N960FXXE0ARB7 and N960FXXU0ARC5 depending upon the processor.

Samsung, however could take a different approach as indicated by an earlier WIPO patent filing, that hints at the entire display working as a fingerprint scanner, which is far different compared to what every other manufacturer apart from Vivo (with the Apex, not the X21) is gunning for.

The Note 9 will be expected to bring performance upgrades, such as the second generation 10nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 and the 6GB of RAM. According to the Geekbench listing, the device scores 5162 in single core and 10704 in multi-core results. Fortunately, the Note 9 is blazing fast, which is not a surprising thing considering it is one of Samsung's flagship devices.

That is all that is known about the Galaxy Note 9 for now and we will update you as soon as new features come forward. This means a glass and aluminum build is present alongside an Infinity Display that is complete with curved edges.

In terms of optics, the rear camera is expected to get a 16-megapixel sensor while the front camera might sport an 8-megapixel sensor for selfies and video calling.

The phone will have same specifications just as Samsung Galaxy S8 have. For the sensor, Samsung might likely be switching to Egis from the Synaptics technology, which might cost 4-5 times its price.
