Samsung Ends Galaxy Note 8 vs. iPhone X Rivalry

Samsung Galaxy S8 deal

This means the Samsung Galaxy S9 is likely to feature a curved screen that extends the curvature on all four sides.

According to a patent filing, this fingerprint reader could make its way to the front but will feature a very small depression so that it does not compromise the total screen-to-body ratio. The new Galaxy Tab A will be available starting on November 1 and will be very affordable at only $229.99.

So, with 2017 nearing its end and all the major smartphone announcements behind us, it's a good time to look ahead into early 2018, as that's when the annual Mobile World Congress will take place. It may not yet be ready for the Galaxy S9, if a former Marketing Manager is to be believed. TechDroider added that Samsung is working on a Face ID-like facial recognition system with 3D sensing capabilities. Analysing the current situation, it seems that Samsung might be skipping the new technology on the Galaxy S9 and aim for the Note 9 launch.

According to tipster Benjamin Geskin, the Galaxy S9 would launch with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage, along with a microSD card slot for further memory expansion. Other countries will get the device running Exynos 9810 processor.

As Galaxy Club reports, the patent was recently filed with the Korean Intellectual Property Office. As a result, those specific tasks can be performed much faster without draining a lot of battery power.

For gamers, the Samsung's new tablet has Game Launcher, which provides a personalized gaming experience complete with an enhanced user interface and more gaming tools.

Before the iPhone X got the attention, the Galaxy Note was ruling the headlines, but it appears this might change soon with the release of the Galaxy S9.
