MANILA, Philippines – Samsung has published an online video announcing the reveal date of its next Note phablet, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9: August 9.

The video mostly shows close-ups of the Note’s distinctive stylus, the S-Pen, in a new yellow color, before revealing the announcement date of August 9, 2018. As is Samsung tradition, the event is going to be called “Unpacked.” 

The Note 9, if it will be called that, is expected to be a refresh rather than an overhaul, much like what we saw with the Samsung Galaxy S9. Camera improvements are expected while an in-display fingerprint scanner – similar to the one that China’s Vivo has managed to bring to market first – is rumored. 

With the official announcement of the reveal date from Samsung, expect leaks in the coming weeks and the rumor mill to churn overtime as the event nears. – Rappler.com
