There aren't many changes from the Galaxy Note 8, but it wasn't exactly a bad-looking phone, either.

Apple is also reported to launch three devices, a 5.8-inch OLED, 6.1-inch LCD and 6.5 inch OLED.

As for the specifications, the Galaxy Note 9 is expected to feature a 6.38-inch Super AMOLED display and could come powered by the Snapdragon 845 in the U.S., and the Exynos 9810 processor in other countries like India.

Fresh details have come to light about the foldable smartphone Samsung supposedly plans to introduce next year.

For years, rumours have swirled about the foldable Samsung phone called the Galaxy X. We have also heard the rumors that at least one of the models will feature a higher pixel density of 600 PPI, which is an increase of 30 PPI over the current models. Unfortunately, WSJ also reports that the phone's price will be no laughing matter, but that also goes along with the same report I just mentioned.

These days the majority of attention is focused either on Apple's 2018 iPhone lineup or Samsung's Galaxy Note 9. According to reports, the triple camera setup could function as the main camera sensor, a telephoto and a wide-angle lens. The larger models will have a fingerprint-on-display (FOD) scanner so you can touch the display to unlock the device. The only question would be whether or not Samsung's alleged in-display sensor will be better, more accurate, and faster than what's available in the market. Interestingly, sources say Samsung isn't anticipating a ton of sales at first, but hopes that being the first to market a foldable device such as this will get at least a few folks excited. Samsung CEO Guo Minghao, who was present at a recent event in Wuhan, China confirmed that the company is set to integrate the ultrasonic fingerprint tech in the Galaxy Note 10, and on the Galaxy high-end "A series" slated for launch next year.

In 2017, Samsung grappled with a major battery flaw in its Galaxy Note 7 phones that caused them to overheat and in some cases catch fire, forcing the firm to ultimately recall the device.

The new smart speaker will supposedly be running Bixby 2.0; Samsung launched the SDK for Bixby 2.0 last year,  and at this year's MWC Samsung Co-CEO Koh Dong-jin claimed that the company will be able to showcase the new version of their virtual assistant with the Galaxy Note9. Separately, a couple of hands-on images of the upcoming Galaxy Note model has been leaked.
