There have been on and off rumors about the phone having an in-display fingerprint sensor - a feature Chinese phone makers like Oppo and Vivo appear to be fully embracing - but nobody seems to be sure about it. The event is set to take place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, and will be broadcasted live on Samsung's official website. The timeframe certainly lines up. Then we see a new shiny gold-colored S-Pen stylus. The Samsung Mall is nothing but a rebranded version of Bixby Vision that can be found on recent Galaxy S9, S9+ and Note 8 smartphones in the U.S. Exact details are pretty thin at the moment, though one leaker called it "the biggest update" in the peripheral's history, for what that's worth.
For the past few years, Samsung hopefuls have been looking for a bigger battery.
In terms of specifications, the Samsung Galaxy A6 features a 5.6-inch display with a 1480 x 720 pixels resolution. The main highlight of the Samsung Days sale is the Galaxy Note 8 and the recently announced Galaxy J8. And they were right - Samsung has already teased the announcement of the next Galaxy Note device on August 9.
Meanwhile, rumours indicate that the upgrade to the Note 8 will be of a similar fashion as the Galaxy S9 was to last year's S8- most probably with a focus on an improved camera rather than a completely renovated design. To recall, Galaxy Note 8 had a serial number SM-N950, for the Note 7 it was SM-N930, while the Note 5 was SM-N920.
The decision to pick August 9 is also not hard to understand since it obviously adds an interesting marketing flair seeing 9-9 (Galaxy Note 9 on August 9) posters everywhere.
It will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 SoC (China and United States market) or in-house Exynos 9810 processor for other global markets. We can also expect a 1440p Super AMOLED panel along with a fingerprint scanner. Naturally, as ever, it's going to be livestreamed and we'll have all the information as soon as Samsung lets us have it.
