The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will be next in the Korean company’s popular premium phablet range, and although it is expected later this summer, rumors are already heating up about the upcoming device. Lately, we’ve heard that Galaxy Note 9 will take a little longer to arrive in stores, thanks to some last-minute design changes.
Delayed by design changes
In today’s image-conscious world, we’ve all felt the pressure to slim down before a big event when we know the eyes of friends and rivals will judge our appearance. As it happens, even top smartphones are not immune to this phenomenon.
According to the latest reports, including The Bell, the Galaxy Note 9 will not follow the most hated trend of the moment. So don’t worry, the design change to which they refer doesn’t concern the controversial cutout, or notch, on the display.
The launch of Samsung’s next S-Pen-enabled phablet was expected by the end of July but has apparently been delayed by a couple of weeks to allow the company to reduce the thickness of the glass on the display by 0.5mm.
The reason for this choice was Lee Jae-yong’s meeting with representatives of OPPO and Vivo. The Samsung Vice Chairman apparently found the Chinese devices more manageable and therefore mandated this small change on the Note 9 to adapt to the competition. We hope that this reduction in the thickness of the glass will not affect the resistance of the device.
Will it be the only design innovation on the Note 9? We can’t say yet but we look forward to discovering what the Korean company has in store for us.
