After launching Galaxy S9 and S9+, the next flagship smartphone from South Korea-based Samsung is the Galaxy Note 9. Although we are months away from the launch of Galaxy Note 9, details about the smartphone keep surfacing.
According to the latest report, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will come with a bigger capacity battery than the Galaxy Note 8. A leaker with a credible track record has suggested that the Galaxy Note 9 will come with a 3,800mAh battery, which is larger than the 3,300mAh battery in the Galaxy Note 8.
One of the reasons for opting to include a bigger battery could be the use of Infinity Display 2.0, which was first introduced with the recently launched Galaxy S9-series. Further, there are reports which claim that the Galaxy Note 9 could also come with an in-display fingerprint sensor. So, these new features may demand a bigger capacity battery.
However, there’s no certainty about the type of fingerprint sensor of the upcoming flagship smartphone. While earlier it was said that the phone will have under display fingerprint sensor, another report claimed that it’s unlikely to happen due to the technology not matching Samsung’s standards. But, the latest report claims that the phone will have in-display sensor instead of a traditional fingerprint sensor.
As of the specifications, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is expected to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor or the company’s own Exynos 9810. The processor will be paired with 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage for the base model.
The phone is expected feature the same-sized 6.3-inch S-AMOLED screen with 18.5:9 aspect ratio as its predecessor. Further, the device is also expected to come with the improved dual-camera setup at the back. Recently, a fan-made render of the phone appeared online with triple-camera sensors, but that is unlikely to happen.
While the company has not yet revealed anything surrounding the Galaxy Note 9, several reports suggest that the Galaxy Note 9 could be unveiled sometime early in August.
