Samsung has set August 9 for its Unpacked event in Brooklyn, NY in what will be the launch of the Galaxy Note 9. The Unpacked 2018 event will be held at the Barclays Center. Here’s the invite:
On August 9, Samsung Electronics will welcome a new member to the premium Galaxy family.
To celebrate the launch of the upcoming device, the company is hosting the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event on August 9, 2018.
Interestingly, Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9 launch will be closely watched to measure tech buyers’ smartphone fatigue. Apple’s iPhone X price tag has limited its mass appeal — even as it has boosted average selling prices. Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9 is also supposed to offer an upgraded camera as a big selling point and be competition for the 2018 iPhone.
Given that Samsung also tends to use the Note line as a platform for bigger hardware experiments, though, it’s likely we could see some other additions — like, say, the long-rumored in-display fingerprint scanner. Whatever the case, we’ll find out in just a few weeks when Samsung’s event rolls around.
