Samsung fans now know when they will get to see the all-new Galaxy Note 9.
The Korean technology giant has just sent out invites to a global keynote taking place in New York on August 9.
Rumours were already rife that this would be the date of Samsung’s next Unpacked event but it has now been confirmed.
The message simply reads “SAMSUNG Galaxy” and shows what appears to be a section of the S Pen stylus in a striking gold colour.
There’s no official news about what will feature on the Note 9 but there’s plenty of rumours to suggest a comprehensive update is coming.
Latest leaks and speculation suggest the Note 9 will arrive with a better display and improved rear dual-lens camera.
There may also be an enhanced front-facing camera system which allows for greater accuracy and speed for facial recognition through Samsung’s iris spotting tech.
Powering the S9 is expected to be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 CPU or Exynos chip, depending on location.
In both cases there should be at least 6GB of RAM for lots of speed.
A recently leaked image also appears to show a tweaked design with new placement for the fingerprint scanner and a dedicated camera button on the side of the device.
It was also thought that Samsung would squeeze a much bigger 3,850 mAh battery inside the Note 9’s glass and metal shell but that may not now be the case.
A new leak from Ice Universe claims that Samsung is taking its battery tech a step further by placing a giant 4,000mAh power pack inside.
If true, it will make the Note 9 one of the most powerful devices on the market and could also help owners get much more life out of a single charge.
Along with the new Note 9 it’s also thought Samsung could soon update its Gear S3 smartwatch with the launch of the new Gear S4.
This flagship wearable hasn’t been updated in almost two years and it seems an upgrade is imminent.
Latest leaks suggest the S4 will include a faster processor, bigger battery and will run on Google’s watch OS software rather than Samsung’s Tizen.
Tizen, which Samsung have built themselves, has powered their smartwatches since 2014, and until recently it was expected to run on the next generation smartwatch.
However, veteran leaker Evan Blass tweeted that Samsung employees have been seen wearing the Korean firm’s next flagship wearable.
Blass said: “Seen on the wrists of Samsung employees: Gear watches running not Tizen, but Wear OS.”
Along with a new operating system the Gear S4 could bring hugely improved health and sleep tracking capabilities plus the ability to check blood pressure may also feature.
