As they do every year, Samsung are about to launch a brand new Galaxy Note. The Galaxy Note 9 will launch on August 9, a little earlier than usual, with a release date of August 24.
So, what can we expect from the Note 9? Well, not a lot will change aesthetically. Leaks suggest it’s pretty much identical to the Note 8, with the same buttons, USB-C port and headphone jack.
The only real difference will be the color options. The Note 9 is expected to launch in Mystic Black, Engineered Blue and Artisan Copper, with possible violet and silver options too.
Feature-wise, the Note 9 is expected to include Bixby 2.0 and an improved dual-lens camera with HDR recording capabilities and the variable aperture featured on the S9. It’s likely to retain the same 6.3 inch Super AMOLED screen as the Note 8, although rumors suggest it’ll be slightly brighter.
Internally, the Note 9 will apparently have a 4,000mAh capacity battery – the biggest ever in a Samsung device. There could be three different RAM and storage options too: 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage, 8GB RAM and 256GB, and 8GB RAM and 512GB.
The rumored in screen fingerprint scanner is unlikely to feature (especially as leaked images show a scanner on the back of the phone), while the highly anticipated bendable display will apparently be held back for 2019’s Galaxy X.
