Galaxy Note 9 won't have in-display fingerprint scanner, Kuo

Microsoft selling customized Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus

A similar prediction was made for the Galaxy S9 by KGI in August (which was accurate) but it claimed then that the Galaxy Note 9 would get it.

Plus, the Galaxy S9 doesn't have a "notch" at the top of the screen for its camera and facial recognition sensors, a design choice for which some tech pundits and fans criticized Apple. What could change, however is the RAM on board.

According to Samsung's "Are we up to date" website in Turkey, the Galaxy Note 8 will be the first of the handsets which will get the Android 8.0 Oreo.

The Galaxy Note 9 will likely have a Snapdragon 845 processor. Unfortunately, Samsung probably isn't jumping on that bandwagon just yet. Together with these slight improvements and increase in size, expect the price to go higher than the £869/$x Samsung is asking for an unlocked S9 Plus.

A slide from Samsung's Galaxy S9 camera presentation. The Galaxy Note series is one of the most important product lines for Samsung.

Like many of you, I too use my phone for just about everything, whether I'm at work or at my home: sending emails, taking notes, browsing Twitter, getting directions and so on. It is expected to have a new and improved S-Pen and be ready with the Bixby 2.0. That's right - they think these 10 stocks are even better buys.

Rumors are light on what the next stylus could bring, but a recent patent suggests Samsung is working on ways to merge touch and pen interactivity for a smooth, seamless experience. Well that's because Samsung is facing some "technological difficulties" in putting a fingerprint scanner below the display. Moving to the features of the device, the key highlight of the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus is its camera where it packs the first dual-aperture camera on the back of the device along with a dual camera setup where both the lenses pack OIS. Additionally, the S9 introduced cool new features such as Dual Aperture and Super Slow-Mo that will no doubt make it to the Note 9 when it launches.

The Galaxy Note 9 will likely launch in late summer with a price tag near $1,000.

While we are still in the process of testing the latest and greatest from Samsung, we thought of giving the camera a shot since that is the big new update.
