Samsung’s Galaxy Note series of phones has been typically launched in the later part of the year. However according to a report from The Investor, it has been suggested that Samsung could be aiming for a slightly earlier release, possibly as early as July, due to a variety of alleged reasons.
One of the reasons is because apparently the Galaxy S9 and S9+ aren’t selling as well as Samsung would have liked. By no means are either phone considered a flop, but perhaps it just did not reach the levels that Samsung would have liked or expected, and maybe the company is thinking that by launching the Note 9 early, they’ll be able to make up for it.
Another alleged reason for why the Note 9 might be announced early is because of Apple’s iPhones in 2018. The rumors are claiming that Apple will be launching three iPhones this year, one of which will feature an even larger display, and two models will also be packing OLED screens. By launching ahead of the iPhones, Samsung could be looking to prevent customers from potentially holding off for Apple’s latest smartphone.
Of course all of this is just rumor for now, but we do know that Samsung is working on the Note 9. In fact recently the model number of the handset was spotted on Samsung’s website. Could this be an indication that the handset is already in the works and could be launching earlier than expected? We suppose we’ll just have to wait and see.
