The S-Pen is expected to receive a major design and features overhaul and even Samsung has highlighted the same on the launch invite for the Galaxy Note 9 launch. Recently, Samsung has started pushing an update to both devices that brings a new video lockscreen feature. To keep its lights on, the handset contains a 3,000mAh battery and the smartphone also supports Near Field Communication, which means that people can use this device to pay for the merchandise they have purchased using Samsung Pay. This is two weeks earlier than the August 23 Unpacked event for the Galaxy Note 8 previous year, as pointed out by Yonhap.
The Note 9 is expected to feature a similar curved Super AMOLED Infinity display as the Note 8 and will look similar to its predecessor at the front. Compared to the fact that the Galaxy Note 8 was released on August 23 and released on September 21, last year, the Galaxy Note 9 will make its worldwide debut two to three weeks earlier. The render also confirms that the Galaxy Note9 will have a rear-facing fingerprint sensor, located below the camera module.
The phone has been leaked online several times before and now a detailed hands-on review has surfaced online by popular tipster Eldar Murtazin.
He also said that the Note 9 seems to be a little bit heavier than the Note 8. "I expect Samsung to do very well with this product as a result". The new stylus will include Bluetooth support and the option to unlock the handset remotely, with a press of a button.
Hardware-wise, the Note 9 is said to be powered by a Snapdragon 845 SoC in Korea and USA, and a Exynos chipset in rest of the world. The device will be backed by a bigger 4000 mAh battery which is estimated to last at least up to 2 days of normal usage, claims Murtazin report.
It is believed that Samsung Galaxy Note9 base variant will be offered in 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. Stay tuned with us for all the latest updates!
