According to a new report coming out of Bloomberg, Samsung will announce its latest flagship phone on August 9th during an Unpacked event that will take place in New York.

This is most certainly the modus operandi for Samsung, and as the report suggests that the device will be called the Galaxy Note 9, we don’t think there is much to doubt here.

Recent weeks have seen much attention laid at the feet of the likes of the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, which will likely arrive later this year and with some impressive devices having been released over the past few weeks from the likes of OnePlus and Huawei, it’s over to Samsung to see what it has in store for its next big thing. Big is the operative word, too, with the Galaxy Note 9 likely to be a beast in more ways than one.

According to reports, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+’s similarities to their 2017 counterparts is an example that will be followed by the Galaxy Note 9, although there will obviously be plenty of changes on the inside. New cameras and a beefier processor from Qualcomm are just about given at this point, although there are no official details about any of that just yet.

The biggest questions currently surround the idea that the Galaxy Note 9 will include an in-display fingerprint sensor. Unfortunately, the most recent reports have this not being the case, though, so we may have to wait until next year to get that. Bixby will be there, though, so yeah, there’s that.

Bloomberg’s piece notes that with this year’s Unpacked event taking place a little earlier in the year than has previously been the case, we may see the device ship towards the end of August, giving it a few weeks of wiggle room before Apple’s new phones land in late September.
