One of the leaked skins was the "Galaxy" skin, which is a male figure with white hair, interstellar design, and several glowing features.
S Pen, the stylus bundled with Samsung Galaxy Note phones, is also set to get a major upgrade this year. In fact, the S9 and S9+ received an unprecedented price cut less than a month after they launched in the US.
Samsung Galaxy Note 9: Release date While we already know that Samsung's new phablet will be launched on August 9, the phone will go on sale in select markets on August 24, roughly two weeks after the official announcement.
The bigger change is going to be seen on the camera: like the S9+, Samsung is including a 12MP camera setup on the back.

This probably isn't the ideal time to buy a Galaxy Note 8 since Samsung is just about to reveal its new Note series phablet, but there are probably a lot of customers who can't afford to purchase the new flagship at launch.
According to reports, Samsung Galaxy Note 9 128GB model will be priced at Euro 1,050 (Rs 83,500) whereas the top-end model with 512GB built-in storage will be priced around Euro 1,250 (Rs 99,400 approximately).
Quandt claims that prices for the Note 9 will start at £899 in the United Kingdom and rise past the £1,000 marker. From day 1 - in fact, from even before day 1 - at least one major U.S. wireless carrier is running a BOGO offer on the Galaxy Note 9.
BOGO deals pop up all the time, but investing in such an offer right out of the gate is clearly an effort to boost sales volume.
