The leaks we have seen about the Galaxy Note 9 so far suggest that there won’t be a lot of differences on the design front. In addition to the new internal hardware, the device is also going to feature several new S Pen features due to its Bluetooth support. Word on the street out of China is that the Galaxy Note 9 is going to feature a new AI UX and icons for basic apps.
Multiple leakers based in China claim that the Galaxy Note 9 is going to bring new icons for basic apps and a new dedicated menu for S Pen with new features. The Galaxy Note 9 will also be the first device from Samsung to feature Bixby 2.0.
Samsung is also expected to launch its AI UX with the Galaxy Note 9. There aren’t a lot of details available about this right now but it could perhaps be an improved version of the existing Bixby screen which leverages artificial intelligence to enable users to do more with the assistant.
Samsung hasn’t confirmed anything about this so far and likely won’t until August 9th when it’s due to officially unveil the Galaxy Note 9 at a special event in New York City. The new flagship is reportedly going to be released on August 24th.
