Finally, the day is here. Samsung will soon be unveiling the Galaxy Note 9 flagship smartphone at its “Unpacked 2018” event in New York. The event kicks off at 11:00AM local time or 8:30PM IST and Samsung will also be live streaming it across its social network platforms and YouTube.

In the run-up to the launch event, we have come across a number of leaks and rumors surrounding the Galaxy Note 9. Almost everything has been leaked, right from the renders to specifications, live photos and retail box. It is already evident that the Galaxy Note 9 will not be much different from its predecessor, the Galaxy Note 9. However, so far, there is no word on the software optimizations that we will be seeing as a part of the package.

This year, Samsung seems to be returning to the roots of Galaxy Note series, which has always stood apart for its large display, big battery and a utility called S Pen. In case you aren’t able to catch the live streaming for some reason, you can follow our live blog below to catch the updates live.
