Below the rear camera, ideally I want it on the front but I guess that's a thing of the past and I can accept that so long as I can hit the scanner without smudging the damn camera and hit it accurately lol.

There are rumors that will be the case for the note 9; though I've also heard they're having reliability issues with that technology.

For me it depends. If band 25-26 CA is active and working out of the box there is no way I'm waiting on the note 9 but if not then I could wait.

For me it has to do with a lot of things battery life Network hardware and radio bands and the cameras. But I definitely agree though that carrier aggregation should be in place.

If the device supports B25/26 aggregation at launch, does this mean Sprint's network also will?

It is highly unlikely that this feature would be built into a phone if it was not going to be activated "SOON".

Depends. Most Samsung markets (ie all except Chicago) still don't have B25 2xCA. My guess is it will be at least a year before 25/26 CA and 41/25 CA is enabled.

B25 will be the primary and will use downlink and uplink while up to two carriers of b41 will be the SCC and will be used for more downlink. B25 being used for uplink really only shows in markets where 10-15mhz of contingious spectrum is being used.

Like Orlando. Or Puerto Rico when B25 becomes 20x20. I think there B25+B13+41+41+41 would kick ass. In Orlando 25+41+41+41+41

Since no one posted it yet, here is Sprint's Galaxy S9/S9+ press release.

 http://newsroom.sprint.com/sprint-is-best-place-to-get-samsung-galaxy-s9-and-galaxy-s9-with-best-price-for-unlimited.htm

I've pretty much already decided I am just going to finance the device through Samsung so my only question is, does anyone know if the unlocked model will have Sprint's bands available or will I have to purchase a Sprint specific model to use it on Sprint?

      Its almost time for the next iteration of Samsung's Galaxy Phones! I'm planning on pre-ordering either the S20+ or Ultra. Current Rumors have it going on Pre-order February 11.  Let the discussion commence...

      Samsung Network Vision equipment are highly distinct and fairly easy to spot compared to the equipment that other vendors are deploying. Sprint is Samsung's first extremely massive American contract (baring Clearwire) so there  should be no issues in confusing these equipment for another carrier which happens often with Ericsson NV equipment.

      Below are images of Samsung equipment which includes antennas, remote radio units, base stations, and their mounting configurations.

      Sprint 4G Rollout Updates
      Tuesday, January 31, 2012 - 7:46 PM MST
       
      Since last fall, there had been talk of a Samsung Galaxy Nexus launching on American carriers other than Big Red. Sprint has finally announced several weeks ago that it is the another vendor slated for release in the U.S. Suffice to say, many of us out there, especially those adverse to heading to Verizon and paying its premium prices, are excited about the impending release.
      The good news is that Google could be working on an updated version of the Galaxy Nexus. It has unofficially been dubbed the Galaxy Nexus Plus. There is much anticipation that it will be released before Sprint turns on LTE this summer. It’s not the first time an OEM has refreshed a device and re-released it to the market place, which works to our advantage. It’s rumored that the new Galaxy Nexus will have either a 1.5 or 1.8 GHz Texas Instrument OMAP4670 dual core processor. This would be a significant upgrade from the 1.2 GHz dual core processor found in the current Verizon version.
      We don’t know anything about official specs, but it’s also rumored to have an 8 MP camera. This is a noteworthy upgrade to the 5 MP shooter on the Verizon model (which has been lauded by many techies). We already know that the Sprint model will come installed with Google Wallet, per previous announcements. Some rumors also point to a beefier battery as well. The phone should have all the other features that’s on the current Galaxy Nexus, so now all we have to do is wait.

      hello all i feel i should start a note 9 rumor thread  please post rumors and what not here.

    • Not impressed with anything relating to SoftBank.   Looks like the amazing Son has struck again.  
    • Failure is not an option.  It would be best to limit change to only those areas where there is very little risk at this time.   If New T-Mobile messes up the network integration (looking at you Sprint Network Vision) in the middle of this virus crisis, there will be hell to pay.  Large numbers of people are dependent on their mobile phones, hot spots, and internet data connections right now for work, school, news, shopping, entertainment and just to keep contact with work, friends and family while they are stuck in their homes.  If connectivity breaks, they can no longer communicate with the outside world.  They also cannot run to a New T-Mobile store to get a bad software push to their mobile phone fixed right now so they better be careful with changes on the mobile device side of the network.

    • Ok iPhone fan boys, need some help and advice. My in-laws have had iPhones for years. My father in-law had used his Apple ID for both phones. Just upgraded from iPhone 7s to iPhone 11 max pro. Have both phones setup and can’t use all features due to same Apple ID. If I create a new Id after both phones are setup, sign out of the one iPhone and sign in with newly made Apple id, all contacts and iMessages will stay? I know I’ve seen merge options, etc.... Can anyone help or ask more questions for clarity!!! Thanks, Josh Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
