It could be, though, that Samsung has been waiting for the S10 to unveil new features that will make the device feel a little more revolutionary. As a result, it's looking more and more like we can expect the Note 9 to be to last year's Galaxy Note 8 what the S9 and S9+ are to the Galaxy S8 and S8+.
Today we have seen the Galaxy A8 Star, with the model number SM-G8850 and the Galaxy S8 Lite model, the SM-G8750 one in the database of the Chinese 3C accreditation site. Reports claim that the Galaxy Note 9 release date may be earlier than expected, perhaps as soon as July. Now, an alleged USA variant of the smartphone has also been spotted on the benchmarking website, and this time it features slightly different scores. Things seem to have settled on no so the rumor mill has moved on to the Galaxy S10. With the release of the Galaxy S9, the Korean tech giant saw sales that were far lower than they expected, but critics were expecting lackluster numbers for one main reason: the lack of a reason to upgrade.
Considering the recent full-fledged specification leak, it looks like we don't have to wait long. However, the article points out that Samsung is developing an in-display fingerprint sensor that uses ultrasonic technology - said to be more accurate, yet more expensive to produce. However, as the "Beyond" phone, it may feature an in-display fingerprint scanner, as well as a 3D face scanning feature similar to what Apple offers for its Face ID system.
The delay is likely justified, but it does spell trouble to Samsung. Apparently Samsung will name it Galaxy J8 (2018).
In the latest twist to the will-they-wont-they roundabout that is Samsung and in-display fingerprint sensors, a new rumor has suggested that the Samsung Galaxy S10 will be the first Samsung device to get this feature, not the Galaxy Note 9. The Galaxy Note 9 May be a bit of a lackluster launch, unfortunately, but Samsung may be able to regain lost ground with the launch of the S10 and S10 Plus.
