We've heard a lot of rumours that Samsung would launch the Galaxy Note 9 earlier than usual, and now a new report claims that it will arrive on August 9th - a full two weeks earlier than the day it launched the Note 8 last year.
This report comes from Bloomberg, with the site's source revealing the typical 'Unpacked' event will take place in New York with plans to release the phone before the end of August. Those plans may be subject to change however, since recent rumours claim the phone will be delayed thanks to a last minute changes to the phone's design. Specifically reducing the thickness of the front glass by 0.5mm.
The source also claims that the Note 9 will have an upgraded Qualcomm processor in some markets, presumably those that typically don't get the models sporting the company's in-house Exynos chipset. Which is basically just the US for some reason. Samsung itself has already confirmed that the Note 9 will be the first to take advantage of Bixby 2.0, and past rumours claim some variants may have as much as 8GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage.
