Samsung will release a Galaxy Note 9 with 512GB of storage in certain markets
Following rumors that Samsung was planning a Galaxy Note 9 variant with a whopping 512GB, new information now claims that the model will be exclusive to the South Korean and Chinese markets, although other countries may receive the storage option at a later date.

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.

This is how you do it, while some others have ONLY 64gb and no expansion.

That is what is nice about Samsung. They tried to do away with expandable storage and listened and brought it back. So nice Samsung gives us the choice.

They didn't try to take it away. It was because the type they were using was too slow and it wouldn't have worked well with the phone.

They did take it away on the Note 5. Don't be their lapdog. It worked on all other Note models.

Yeah, like those people that want IR blasters and removable batteries, Samsung did a good job listening to them. Can’t wait to take advantage of both on my Note 9.

There is a reason they didn't bring back removal batteries, while bringing back expandable storage, and if you can't figure out why, then I'm disappointed in you, but not shocked. If necessary, help below for iSheeps who aren't used to thinking on their own: I can tell you that it has something to do with the dynamic of majority opinion, minority opinion and Samsung's own evaluation.

You have failed at being a member of the Samsung Defense Force, many people in many forums online have asked for the return of removable batteries. Also for the return of the IR blaster. I noticed you didn’t even mention the IR blaster in your lame reply.

Their research might have showed that majority of their customer didn’t care about IR blaster. I am sure they have more concrete data than our imagination.

True Never used it on any of my phones when it was there.

Just because you never used it means nothing, many people miss the IR blaster. Stop riding Samsung’s d!ck so hard, it’s pathetic.

Coming from the guy called "apple-rulz". Really? At least Sissy isn't called something like "Samsung-rulz". I think the real dick jumper is you.

How about you stop riding Apples D**K so much. I simply agreed that research might have shown that and that I never used it. Where the F**K did I say no one used it.

The problem with Samsung Galaxy bigger storage shows less ram and less storage unlike 32GB or 64GB version I don’t know why? Used to has this issue on my pervious S7 edge black pearl 128GB. SD card reduce overall performance of the phone plus it cause overheating and throttling issue to the phone and still not as fast as internal Nand flash storage even the fastest SD card plus Samsung or other Android phone including iPhone already offer OTG.

256 should be the minimum.

4. TechSceptic

What? 256Gb is offered by Samsung, but it definitely shouldn't be minimum. If it was minimum, then it would force a lot of people to spend extra money on a larger storage version, when they have no need for so much storage. This is especially true when Samsung Galaxy smartphones has expandable storage, which results in the fact that you aren't forced to buy the largest storage version available, out of fear of ruining out of storage with no way to expand. If you run out of storage with just about any Samsung phone, then you can simply expand it through the SD-card slot. I personally bought the 64GB version of the Galaxy S9, as i didn't want to spend extra cash on additional storage that i didn't need. If i ever happen to have a lot of large pictures or video files, then i can simply pop in an SD-card and store them there. I will even be able to simply take out the SD card and put into another device, if i want to move the files. It's so simple yet efficient and elegant.

Dual sim hybrid with 64gb is not acceptable to me If not a dedicated sim slot...give us 128gb for a FLAGSHIP

If it's not acceptable to you, then you simply buy a more expensive version with more storage, as Samsung offers you the choice. That is exactly what a low of people seem to not understand, especially iPhone users, the concept of choice. If you want more on-board storage, then you simply buy one of the models that Samsung offer you with more storage. You can just buy the 256GB version of the Galaxy S9. The best part is, even if i discover that i wanted more storage than i originally bought, then i'm not screwed. My Galaxy S9, unlike many other flagships, comes with expandable storage, so i can simply pop in more storage if i need it.

I’m using OTG on my S9 plus transfer videos and photos faster.

Hell no, the more space you have the more crap you put there, it's that simple. When you have less space you actually only store the stuffs what you really need. That's why i bought my phone and tablet with second smallest storage size. I already have my computer 2TB full of crap which i won't ever delete, not wanting same with my mobile devices.

More space are always welcome. When at vacation, peoples love to take photos and video recording. "Unlimited" space are always wanted and not need to thinking running out of space. 4K@60fps 10 min takes around 3.5GB.

We'll talk when expandable storages become as fast as the internal.

with the size of photos, music, videos and games/apps on modern phones, the new base minimum should be 128gb for flagships, and 64gb for midrange and 32gb for low end devices, i mean when a phone costs $900, you want the price to be reflected in its components, i want the most ram, the best storage, the fastest processors, not because I need them necessarily, but because the price you pay should be justified, we have all seen the bill of materials cost for these high end devices and they often come in at under $300, and that prices decreases as time goes on, the price of phones shot up since the arrival of the iphone plus then the X models, and samsungs last few high ends have also seriously rocketed as well
