Samsung will release a Galaxy Note 9 with 512GB of storage in certain markets
Presently, it’s unclear if any changes other than the storage capacity will be made to the top-of-the-line variant but, if not, 6GB of RAM is to be expected alongside Samsung’s own Exynos 9810 Octa. Additionally, Android 8.1 Oreo coupled with the latest version of Samsung Experience is set to ship straight out of the box, with all of this being backed by a 4,000mAh battery. Also, when it comes to the camera department, a variable aperture sensor is expected to be included next to a secondary telephoto lens while, over on the front, an 8-megapixel selfie sensor is rumored.
When it comes to the overall design, the Galaxy Note 9 is expected to resemble last year’s Galaxy Note 8 pretty closely. This means an aluminum frame that is home to a volume rocker, power key, and a dedicated Bixby button will be featured. However, despite rumors of a new shutter button, the most recent leaks have confirmed this will not be included. In terms of the front and rear, both panels will once again be made out of glass, with the front one being adorned by a large Infinity Display that boasts a slightly slimmer bottom bezel when compared to last year’s Galaxy Note 8.
Moving on to the topic of availability, Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9 is currently expected to be unveiled on August 9 at an event in New York, with pre-orders likely commencing shortly after and shipments beginning around two weeks later.
