Honor just teased new Note 10 to take on Samsung's Note 9

Reliable tipster Evan Blass, who regularly leaks unannounced developments through his @evleaks Twitter account, has posted the render showing the Galaxy Tab S4 in White colour. But thanks to a leak via Android Headlines, we're getting our first good look at the device.

Samsung is yet to confirm when the Galaxy Tab S4 is going to be announced. My reasoning for this is that Samsung won't want the Tab S4, or the Galaxy Gear smartwatch for that matter, to take any attention away from the Galaxy Note 9 launch.

Samsung's Noida mobile phone plant, the world's largest mobile manufacturing factory that was inaugurated by PM Narendra Modi and South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Monday, will start production of high-end Galaxy Note 9 from the end of this month. The maximum storage is said to be 512 GB while the display has been upsized to 6.4-inches, a meager upgrade of 0.1-inch from the screen of the Note 8.

Overall though, the Note 9 is expected to be similar to the Note 8. We get to see the new S Pen once again and it indeed appears to have a glossy finish.

Each in-display fingerprint module will cost $15, which is more than seven times the price of the normal fingerprint sensor Samsung has used in its previous phones, BGR reported. Below the horizontal dual-lens camera setup sits the fingerprint sensor, which was placed on the side of the Note 8.

The rest of Samsung's Galaxy phone pillars should also remain intact on the Note 9.

More leaks are sure to slip out over the next few weeks in the lead up to the Note 9's official debut.
