Meanwhile, the Korean publication ETNews suggests that the Galaxy Note 9 will likely go on sale on August 24. The report cites that due to slow Galaxy S9 sales, Samsung is supposedly planning to start sales for its new flagship on August 24 instead of August 31.

One of the variants of the Galaxy Note 9 is tipped to come with a massive 512GB native storage. Samsung’s upcoming flagship is anticipated to come with an improved S Pen stylus that will offer new features.
