If you are a fan of Samsung's Galaxy Note series, you are in for a treat this summer. The next model in the Galaxy Note line, the Galaxy Note 9, is reportedly set to debut in early August at Samsung's Unpacked event in New York, and will include several upgrades over its predecessor. It will of course wield a faster processor, but also a better Bixby experience and improved camera performance.
To start with, it's rumored the Galaxy Note 9 will have an even bigger display, this time checking in at 6.38 inches versus a slightly smaller 6.32-inch display on the Galaxy Note 8. There's also been talk of the Galaxy Note 9 being Samsung's first smartphone with a fingerprint reader built into the screen. That would make it one of the exceptionally rare phones on the market to include that sort of design—there is an obscure phone in Asia that debuted with the feature months ago—and certainly the first from a company with a global footprint as large as Samsung's.
