Although Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9 is still a ways off, it looks as if more and more information is being leaked as time goes on. While none of this info is necessarily confirmed, a lot of the rumors are from reliable sources. If history is any indication, it could likely give us a sense of what exactly we can expect from this upcoming phone. This new Galaxy Note 9 news gives us a sneak peek at some of the technical specifications we’ll likely see when the phone is released, with an expected announcement later next year.
Galaxy Note 9 Specifications
Thanks to our friends at Galaxy Note 9 News, we have a pretty extensive list of what this upcoming phone may feature. If these rumors are correct, it’s looking as if the Note 9 will be a serous improvement over the current generation, making it more than worth the upgrade.
Perhaps most important when discussing the specs of a brand new phone is the power. After all, a luxury flagship should be able to run smoothly no matter what you throw at it. The Note 9 is sure to exceed expectations, with 8 GB of RAM for the 128 and 256 GB models, and 6 GB of RAM for the 64 GB. Even if you opt for the smaller storage to save some money, that amount of RAM should be more than enough for even the most demanding tasks. Both the Exynos and Qualcomm variants of the Note 9 will also feature an octa-core CPU.
In addition to top notch performance, we’ve come to expect beautiful displays and image quality in Samsung’s high-end phones. The Galaxy Note 9 will feature a 2K stretched AMOLED display, with a 18:5:9 aspect ratio. Your favorite games and video should look as great as they play, and if this Galaxy Note 9 news is any indication, you likely won’t be disappointed.
As far as security goes, the phone will feature an on-display fingerprint scanner. For a more high-tech approach to unlocking your phone, you’ll be able to take advantage of an improved Iris Scanner that’s more accurate and provides more confidence that your phone will remain free from prying eyes.
But what good is an excellent phone if it doesn’t last you all day? With bigger and brighter screens, the ability of these flagships to have a respectable battery life is sometimes called into questions. The 4800 mAh battery is one of the biggest we’ve seen in smartphones, ensuring that you’ll be able to do whatever you need to do without worrying about your phone dying while you’re away from home. The phone is also rated for water and dust resistance, affording you that extra peace of mind when it comes to protecting this valuable investment.
Another aspect that Samsung has become known for when it come to their top-of-the-line devices is the excellent camera. You should be able to take beautiful photos with the Note 9; Featuring a 16 Megapixel rear camera with dual-lenses — one 50mm and another 28mm — both with a f/1.7 aperture and OIS, the Galaxy Note 9 lives up to Samsung’s reputation for some of the best cameras on the smartphone market. The phone also features a 12 Megapixel, 28mm front francing camera with a wide angle lens, perfect for capturing that perfect selfie.
Galaxy Note 9 Release Date
Although it’s note possible to know with complete certainty when Samsung’s new phone is going to release, this new Galaxy Note 9 news suggests that we’ll see an announcement in August of next year. This is by no means confirmed, but with the Note 8 announced and shipping in September of this year, the timeline seems like it would be about right. With yearly releases becoming the norm for Samsung as well as most other smartphone companies, it seems as if the suspected announcement date is pretty reliable. If the Note 8 is any indication, the Note 9 will release very quickly following the announcement — perhaps shipping within the month.
Until these rumors are confirmed with an official announcement and release, all of these specs could change. But with a while to wait until the Note 9 launch, these details still provide us an inside look at what’s awaiting us with Samsung’s newest flagship. Take a look at some of the concept images below for a sense of what this new phone might look like.
