The Samsung Galaxy S8 Lite has been rumored to arrive for a while now, the alleged device got certified by TENAA quite recently, and now, the phone's press renders and a possible release date surfaced. Ice Universe, on Twitter, said that he/she is nearly certain now that Samsung Note 9 will not come with the in-display fingerprint sensor. Instead, it will have a regular fingerprint reader on the back of the phone just like the Note 8. Ice Universe did not mention why Samsung is ditching the feature, but the mysterious tipster has a pretty good track record of leaking accurate details on Samsung devices. Now, however, a source that has been reliable many times in the past has shared what is believed to be the first image of Samsung's upcoming next-generation Galaxy Note handset.
Design: Note 9 is expected to sport a design language similar to S9 but only bigger in size. So, Samsung might have made a decision to skip it again on the Galaxy Note 9.
Now the question arises, why don't Samsung can't get the technology right when smaller manufacturers like Vivo has already integrated the technology.
Trademarking these names doesn't gurantee Samsung will release the Galaxy Watch or Galaxy Fit products, but we'll hopefully find out more in the coming months when the company makes an official announcement about its next generation wearables.
Display: Note-series phone usually come with a 5.7-inch display but this changed after Note 8. The bezels above and below the display may be slightly narrower than they are on the Note 8, which would again follow the same pattern as the Galaxy S9 as compared to the S8. Today's tip suggests the Galaxy Note 9 will be just 2mm shorter than its predecessor. And Samsung is doing the same thing with the Galaxy S9.
Under the hood, the Galaxy S8 Lite will apparently have an octa-core processor clocked at 1.9 GHz or 2.2 GHz, but the exact model of the chipset is unspecified.
No word yet whether the red Galaxy S9 will be available in other worldwide markets.
According to the previous leaks, Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will be unveiled in the third quarter of this year.
