Leaked Note 9 retail box lists larger display, 4000mAh battery, 'remote control' S Pen

Note 8 specs. This might have something to do with the alleged more refined Infinity Display design with a tad slimmer bezel, or could be a different type of rounding, though the rules are pretty set on that. We did have CAD dimensions sent to us not long ago, and made a render out of them showcasing a tad shorter and wider handset, so that might be it. Let's not forget that recent rumors pegged the Galaxy S10+ display to grow to 6.4 inches in order to chase the eventual iPhone X Plus diagonal, so that might be the panel we are looking at here.
Furthermore, the leaked box which, according to the tweet has simply been chillaxing in the store's warehouse in Moscow waiting for the official pre-order announcement, confirms a 4000 mAh battery. Samsung's leaked promo video of the Note 9 has long battery life as one of its key points so that ties up nicely.
Another new feature will be the 128GB basic storage, compared to the Note 8's 64GB, which shouldn't be reflected in the price at launch, too. The camera setup seems to be the one from the Galaxy S9+, though probably with some craftier algorithms thrown in as enhancements. AKG-anointed stereo speakers and earphones round up the pretty picture, as well as IP68 water-tight certification, iris scanning, and wireless charging to go with the new Duo pad.
Last but not least, the box mentions a digital stylus S Pen with what we can translate from Russian to be "remote control," and ties up nicely with the rumors that the new Bluetooth-enabled stylus will let you unlock the phone, control your stereo, and even shooter games, so we can't wait to hear more at Samsung's event in New York next week.

I hope they fixed the fingerprint reader from Note8, which it total crap and much slower and less accurate than even most of the cheap Xiaomi phones, not to mention the newer Huaweis that are lightning quick.

I disagree. The fingerprint reader on the Note 8 has worked extremely bwell for me. It's one of my favorite features on the Note 8.

My fps was a light tap n go, same as it was with s8 and now s9+. Maybe you had a bad unit.

Cant speak for the note 8 but the S8 fp and iris scanners were absolute turds compared to the ones on the s9. The s9 has been absolutely beyond perfect, while the s8 made me want to slam it against a wall at times.

We've actually known this for a while. The millimeter conversion puts it at 6.377", or 6.38" which is what "The Bell" reported Samsung ordering a month or more back. Also, as noted, the phone is 1.6mm wider than before, so it would have been weird if the screen wasn't bigger.

I wonder if this will be noticeable in real life.

Not likely... there have been two unofficial hands-on reports of the Note9, and both of them said they thought the screen was the same size as the Note8. Granted, they likely didn't have a Note8 to put beside it, and it's unlikely they actually measured the screen, but if the screen were a LOT bigger, they surely would have noticed it.

With big display, I am expecting note 9 to have 5000mah but 4000mah is ok. Looking forward for a wide angle camera in the official launch.

I've played with one already. No wide angle. It's the same as the S9
