Samsung Galaxy S9 Lite to Launch on May 21

Posted May 11, 2018

On the other hand, the price of the Galaxy Note 9 might be a mystery yet, but you wish it will be lower.

Samsung is getting ready to launch its next flagship - the Galaxy Note 9 smartphone which is reportedly said to be launched in July or August this year.

What's absolutely unusual and very sexist about Samsung's new offer is that Samsung is apparently bundling the red Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ with your choice of red lipstick. Well, it might be due to the fact that it's mostly European markets where Samsung launches Galaxy A5 handsets, while the Galaxy A7 phones tend to hit Asian and Middle Eastern markets where there's a higher demand for phones with big displays. Do let us know your opinion in the comments section below.

We have been hearing about the possibility of Samsung integrating an in-screen fingerprint scanner on their flagship series since 2017. And it seems something similar might happen this time as well.

The key here is that the Samsung Galaxy S8 Lite is expected to be priced as a mid-range phone despite those decent specs.

The TENAA listing also includes photos of the smartphone, and it looks almost identical to the existing Galaxy S8, except for the rear-mounted heart rate monitor which is absent in the Lite version.

Not that it's going to be a bad thing because the Galaxy Note 8's design was much appreciated.

The display of the Note 8 was around 6.32 inches, while the Note 9 will come at 6.38 inches.

A separate trademark application sees the company granted use of the name Samsung Galaxy Fit, which may be for the follow up device to the Samsung Gear Fit 2 Pro. On the technical specifications, the Galaxy Note 9 is expected to come with some upgrades like 8GB RAM and the next generation Octa-Core chipset. Video recording will be supported in 4K resolution at 60fps. In either case, it will be a larger battery than the Galaxy Note 8 with a 3,300mAh battery.

One reason could be the alleged "performance issues" that cropped up when the technology was included on the Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S9 during the phones' development. However, that might be so small that you'd expect a very slight difference. As of now, there is no information about the launch date of this device.

Where does that leave the launch of the rumoured Samsung Galaxy X folding phone?
