Samsung Galaxy S9 Lite to Launch on May 21

Samsung Galaxy S9 Lite to Launch on May 21

According to a report by Forbes, it is "almost certain" that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will not come with an on-screen fingerprint sensor like the Vivo X20 Plus UD. Ice Universe, on Twitter, said that he/she is nearly certain now that Samsung Note 9 will not come with the in-display fingerprint sensor. The leakster has previously broken the Galaxy Note 8 design, succeed in achieving the first real-world photos of Galaxy S8 and also leaked every single detail of the Galaxy S9. There is a rear fingerprint sensor.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 is a high-end smartphone and although it's no longer the latest flagship from the company, it may still be too expensive for some. Often reliable Twitter tipster Ice Universe has shared a Note 9 render that shows that the upcoming phablet would be similar to the Galaxy S9 Plus with a stylus.

Trademarking these names doesn't gurantee Samsung will release the Galaxy Watch or Galaxy Fit products, but we'll hopefully find out more in the coming months when the company makes an official announcement about its next generation wearables. If you've been wanting the premium Galaxy S8 or S9 but can't afford twice that amount, then Galaxy S8 Lite may be good enough.

The display is likely to feature a QHD+ resolution and 18.5:9 aspect ratio. However, it is not clear if it will be a major overhaul over the current Samsung Experience UI that sits on the Galaxy S9. But based off the picture it seems like not much has outwardly changed between the Galaxy Note 8 and the Note 9. The Samsung Galaxy A8 (208) and Galaxy A8+ (2018) are powered by a 2.2GHz octa-core processor. The phone is expected to come with some improvements in S-Pen.

Though the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the Galaxy A5 (2017) is initially live in select markets, it should roll out in other markets soon, and you can check its availability manually by going to Settings Software updates.

What's absolutely unusual and very sexist about Samsung's new offer is that Samsung is apparently bundling the red Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ with your choice of red lipstick.
