After rumours of the budget Samsung galaxy J4, it appears Samsung is also lining up their next flagship; the Samsung Galaxy Note 9.
Some expected improvements from the preceding Galaxy Note 8 include slimmer bezels, a bigger battery, a more responsive S Pen and possibly an in-screen fingerprint sensor.
Here’s what we expect to see:
The device will come with a curved Super AMOLED display. We do not expect much difference in screen size, at most Samsung will bump it to 6.5-inches. The Galaxy Note 8 has a 6.3-inch display.
OS and Processor
The device will most likely run on Android 8.1 (Oreo). The chipset will either be a Snapdragon 845 or Exynos 9810.
RAM and Storage
Being a premium device, we expect the Note 9 to come with RAM of, or north of, 6GB. Storage will most likely start at 128GB.
Samsung has really tried to keep a tight lead on the Galaxy Note 9’s camera specs. All we know is that the Galaxy Note 9’s primary camera will be an improved dual-lens shooter in an horizontal profile.
The device will see a significant increase in battery size, it is believed the Note 9 will come with a 3850mAh battery. Other reports intimate the battery may be as big as 4000mAh.
Either way, the Note 9’s battery will be bigger than that of the Note 8; which is 3300mAh.
- An AI chip
- Bixby 2.0
- Improved Facial recognition
Release Date and Price
Samsung is likely to release the Galaxy Note 9 in early August, with its announcement possibly coming at the end of July. The Galaxy Note 8 was released on 23rd August.
The Note 8 cost $929, so we don’t expect the Note 9 to cost less since manufactures rarely scale down prices of subsequent flagships.
