Mobile maker Samsung has confirmed that it would be rolling out a new update for Galaxy Note 9. This development came amid the rumors and leaks surfaced online recently. As speculation is building up for Galaxy S10 which will be released in 2019, a feature for Galaxy Note 9 is indeed a welcome development.
Galaxy Note 9 will be receiving a feature upgrade
Samsung Research AI Center Head Gray G. Lee has pointed out the company’s top five directions in developing smartphones that users would really love.
“Samsung’s AI vision has five directions: user-centric, always learning, always there, always helpful and always safe,” said Lee, according to the Korea Herald, confirming the Galaxy Note 9’s unique feature.
He further confirmed about Samsung Bixby 2.0 which is the next generation AI- drive assistant for Samsung. He added that this upcoming update is expected to be rolled out to the platform. Samsung Bixby 2.0, he said, would be released with the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 later this year.
Not only, but Lee also hinted that Samsung is planning to release the Galaxy Note 9 in August 2018. The rumored release date run in contrast to the earlier rumor that suggested of the early July release date. It can be recalled that Galaxy Note 8 was revealed on August 23, 2017, and the Galaxy Note 7 was revealed on August 2, 2016, respectively.
Meanwhile, the company’s previous announcements about Bixby as a service and a platform pale in comparison to their competitors. Unless of course, you would compare Bixby to Siri.
Samsung never reports what number of cell phones it offers into channels or to end clients each quarter, so we’ll never know precisely what a number of Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ handsets the South Korean organization has sold.
Here’s The Photo Of The Leaked Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9
Various reports have said that Samsung deals have been moderate. All things considered, we have much more strong proof that Galaxy S9 deals have been disappointing: both the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ got huge value cuts after only one month it debuted to the public.
Both the Galaxy S9 and S9+ look similar to both Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ that were launched last year. This could be one of the reasons why people are not sold out to upgrade their smartphones. Granting this is the case, another bad news for Samsung users: a new leak reveals that Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Note 9 would likely to follow the Galaxy S9’s lead.
Previous months, we have heard several information about the Galaxy Note 9, which is expected to feature a design just like last year’s Galaxy Note 8. But a source has finally revealed what appears to be the first image of Samsung’s upcoming next-generation Galaxy Note handset.
A Twitter user named Ice Universe has shared the Galaxy Note 9 photo in the micro-blogging site. Ice Universe is known in the past to have leaked accurate details and images of unreleased phones. Samsung users claim that the leaked photo appeared to be the first render of Samsung’s new Galaxy Note 9. Others claim that it looks similar to the Galaxy Note 8 released back in 2017.
“Samsung was lazy in 2018, and I concluded that Note9 would not change much,” the anonymous leaker wrote in the tweet that accompanied the image above. “This is just a small adjustment to Note8.”
Among the rumored features of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is the Super Speed Dual Pixel camera, under-display fingerprint sensor, among others.
Samsung Galaxy owners in the United States could bring their defective phones to uBreakiFix service centers. This comes after Samsung’s announcement this week that it partnered with uBreakiFix to repair the devices.
The company announced that Galaxy owners could bring their phones starting March 15 to more than 300 uBreakiFix service centers. Repair technicians can do an on the spot repair within two hours or less.

Also, Samsung plans to expand the repair program all throughout 2018. Samsung added that Samsung Galaxy owners could make a scheduled appointment. The appointment could be set at any uBreakiFix location. They could also visit the service center and have their phones repaired.
The company has assured all the Galaxy owners that uBreakiFix repair centers would use Samsung genuine parts. This also include the use of Samsung proprietary tools, and repair technicians that are Samsung certified pros.
“At Samsung, our goal is to provide Samsung Galaxy owners with a customer first care experience that is as innovative as our products,” Michael Lawder, Senior Vice President of Customer Care at Samsung Electronics America said in a statement.
“This announcement marks a fundamental shift in our care offerings to consumers and underscores our commitment to provide Samsung customers with support anywhere, anytime our customers need it,” Lawder added.
Moreover, Samsung pointed out that the company’s Samsung Care locations would also provide battery replacements, camera repairs, as well as in and out-of-warranty support services to other Galaxy devices.
After Silicon Valley giant Apple Inc. that was dragged into the battery issue, now it is Samsung. The South Korea-based tech company is now facing a battery-related problem in its Galaxy Note 8 device.
The news comes after a large number of Samsung users in the US reported that Samsung Galaxy Note 8 phablets stopped charging. They said the problem persisted even after the Galaxy Note 8’s battery was drained.
As an initial response, Samsung has replaced the problematic devices but what Samsung users felt right now was that they are anxious about the company’s silence on the battery issue.
We all know that 2017 was the best and practically, a generous year for Samsung but this may eventually change. This is because of the reports mounting about the battery-related issue on their devices.
Galaxy Note 8 battery problem is not ‘life-threatening’
But some tech analysts would claim that the present battery problem encountered by Samsung users in Galaxy Note 8 is just a simple problem. Some even said that it is not a life-threatening at all compared to the battery fiasco in its predecessor, the Galaxy Note 7.
However, they emphasized that Samsung’s silence or response to the problem is the same. In 2016, Samsung had faced the exploding battery in Galaxy Note 7. It took a while for the company to release a statement which leaves Samsung users to think apprehensible.
Galaxy Note 8 owners have no phone to use or worse; they could no longer recover data because of the battery problem. Samsung, in a statement, linked the issue to charging management.
Below is the official statement coming from Samsung:
“Samsung takes all reports of this kind, of course, seriously. We have received only a very small number of customer inquiries that can be linked to charging management. Unfortunately, we can only comment on the matter further if we have more detailed information about the affected devices.”
A week ago, Samsung rolled out a new update for its flagship Galaxy Note 8. The update contains bug fixes and security features for Android-powered devices.
Among the security updates contained in the Galaxy Note 9 software update is the VPN service. Samsung users were not able to notice the new built-in service immediately.
What it makes more interesting is that the Galaxy Note 8 update introduces a new feature for the Galaxy Note series. The VPN service feature allows mobile users to establish a more secure Wi-Fi connection.
It is worthy to note that Samsung previous launched its Secure Wi-Fi service to the Galaxy J series. Some Galaxy J series actually lauded this feature since they are using a low-end type of device.
So how does this VPN works? The built-in VPN service works similarly with Samsung’s latest flagship devices. The service offers users several options to select based on the various plan for the VPN service.
Samsung users can actually pick a VPN service that is free but with limitations. By having a secure Wi-FI, it allows a user to browse the internet when they connect to an unsecured Wi-Fi networks.
Enabling the VPN service will provide users with a safe access to the internet through encryption, especially the outgoing web traffic.
Samsung also said that such feature prevents access to both websites and applications from users who tracked web activities. This means that the Galaxy Note 8 update adds a new layer of security while being productive.
