Samsung will announce a product more than a week before its Unpacked event or IFA 2018 shenanigans, Pocket-lint has learnt.

The videos all clock in at 30-seconds each, and simply show people having issues with their current phone. There's also word that the game will support the Samsung S-Pen, enabling stylus support and precision aiming for those that can't quite get the job done with their fingers. Those problems are speed, battery life, and storage. "A lot can change in a day" is the tagline for the video, and it ends with the date August 9, which is when the firm is expected to unveil the Galaxy Note 9. In the runup to the unveiling, the company is releasing a trio of teaser videos to increase the hype around its next flagship. Well, rumour has it that the company has incorporated 4,000mAh battery, 700mAh (21-per cent) more than its predecessor, which will be enough to last a one and half day under mixed usage.

GSM Arena reports that a reputable Twitter tipster, with a good track record, has indicated that the previously namechecked Samsung Galaxy X won't be a foldable device. Devices-bound for US, China and South Korea will have Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 octa-core processor. Rest assured, both the variants will offer the same level of performance and would set a new benchmark in performance among Android phones.

Astronomers say the planet will continue to cast its bright glow into the beginning weeks of August but will fade by mid-August. The Mars opposition falls just before the longest total lunar eclipse of the century , which will last 1 hour and 43 minutes.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is due to launch on August 9 at an event in NY, and in the latest set of online leaks, smart cases, colour schemes of the phone have been shared online. The report also looks to reconfirm the suggestion the S Pen will be Bluetooth-enabled this time around. It'll also reportedly have 128GB of storage space and 6GB of RAM, making it the most powerful Samsung mobile device yet.

The only other details that emerge about the Huawei folding phone in the Nikkie report is that the maker intends to use flexible OLED screens from Chinese supplier Beijing Oriental Electronics (BOE) in the handsets, which is another move that could come as a big blow to Samsung.
