After launching the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus, Samsung is now gearing up to launch the next-generation Galaxy Note series smartphone - the Samsung Galaxy Note 9.

Stop me if you've heard this before, but Samsung's hottest new smartphone is rumored to launch well ahead of its due date.

According to a report by South Korean publication The Investor, Samsung Display (a Samsung subsidiary) will start the production of the OLED panels for the Galaxy Note9 in April, which is two months earlier. The latest news is that Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has surfaced on few official sites of the company.

The Note 9 display, expected to measure 6.38 inches, which is bigger than the previous 6.32-inch screen, will be the largest among Samsung's high-end handsets. Out of these, two iPhones will come with OLED display (5.85-inch and 6.46-inch) and the third one may sport an LCD display (6.04-inch).

Considering what Samsung did with the Galaxy S9 this year, we expect the Galaxy Note 9 to be very similar to its predecessor. Of course, battery size isn't everything and the phone's setup also contributes a lot to the battery performance. Most of the world gets the one with Samsung's own Exynos 9810, while for North America and China the phone is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845. Samsung has priced the 128GB variant at Rs.61,900 while the 256GB variant costs Rs.65,900. It is not, however, expected to feature an in-screen fingerprint sensor. But earlier this year, we heard that Samsung was committed to leaving FM hardware unlocked and accessible for its upcoming phones in the USA and Canada. Keep watching this space for further updates.
