Galaxy S, Samsung’s flagship smartphone series, turns 10 this year and the rumor-mill is predicting a third entry-level model alongside the standard Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 upgrades, plus some improved camera systems on the flagship device.
The South Korean conglomerate has scheduled the Galaxy Note 9 announcement on Thursday, August 9. The next Note is expected to have a slightly larger screen and battery, an upgraded S-Pen stylus and improved cameras.
A jury has told Samsung it must pay Apple $539 million for infringing on three design patents with Android phones sold between 2010 and 2011. The number is significant because it’s higher than what Apple was likely to get based on past court decisions.
Samsung’s next-generation Note flagship could be just two months away as supposedly poor sales of the Galaxy S9 series prompted the South Korean firm to roll out the next Note one month earlier, as early as August. Plus, a foldable “Galaxy X” device will reportedly be joining the lineup in 2019.
