Samsung Galaxy Note 9
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is still a great phone, made even better by the Android Oreo upgrade and a cheaper price tag. That said, before you commit to one or the other, you'll want to dig into Samsung Galaxy Note 9 rumors.
Samsung confirmed the Galaxy Note 9 at MWC 2018 in February and Galaxy Note 9 rumors are starting to pickup as we move into the summer.
We still don't have an official list of features, but the potential changes we've heard about are extremely exciting.
Rumors suggest Samsung is planning to deliver a brand new S Pen, a large high-resolution display, and a bigger battery for improved performance. The company is also testing Android 8.1 Oreo on the device behind the scenes.
All signs point to a Galaxy Note 9 launch on August 9th at Samsung's next major media event which means we only have a few weeks to go before the company reveals the device in detail.
The Galaxy Note 9 looks like it'll be a worthy successor for the Galaxy Note 8 and a solid alternative to big screen devices like the iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X.
