Samsung's new Galaxy phone has no online connectivity

15 April known insider Evan Blass announced the code name of one of the most anticipated mobile devices this year - Samsung Galaxy Note 9.

The display ratio surfaced upon inspecting the screenshots, found in the FCC website. Apparently, their listing hinted towards the Galaxy Note 9; however, it is confirmed now.

We don't have an official release date for the Galaxy J6, but considering last year's releases to the Galaxy J series, we might get it as early as May.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is expected to be the top alternative for those who don't prefer to use the iPhone.


Of the seven flagship smartphones that were tested, the Galaxy S9 came in at sixth place. The Galaxy Note 9 will succeed the Galaxy Note 8, which made its debut in August a year ago. The handset will use two different processors - a Snapdragon 845 chipset and Samsung's own Exynos processor - depending upon the market.

Samsung has been the one hold-out, even going so far as to mock Apple's notch in their ads. The rear is also void of any fingerprint sensor, which means either Samsung will rely completely on the facial recognition system along with the iris scanner or include an in-display scanner. Not long after the closed-door meeting, however, comments from Samsung CEO DJ Koh appear to suggest that the Galaxy X has been moved to a 2019 release date, as noted in a Know Your Mobile report. Plus, of course, the Galaxy Note 9 will also feature the S-Pen stylus which can be used to take notes.

If the speculation is correct, the Note 9 could become one of the best devices ever for battery life. Just like the Galaxy S9, the display on the smartphone will also curve gradually at the edges. It might not therefore be present in the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 after all and might be cancelled, as both ultrasonic and optical solutions might not be able to cope with the technical requirements.
