The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will include a 4,000mAh battery, confirms tipster
After a previous leak revealed Samsung was returning to the horizontal camera setup in order to include a much larger battery, tipster Ice Universe now claims that he is “100% sure” the Galaxy Note 9 will include a 4,000mAh pack.

Previously, Samsung’s next flagship was rumored to include a battery capacity of anywhere between 3,850mAh and 4,000mAh but, if Ice Universe’s sources are correct, Samsung appears to have ultimately gone for the highest possible option. This should mean a significant boost in battery life over last year’s Galaxy Note 8 which included a pretty average 3,300mAh battery unit is to be expected. Additionally, the new power pack should help power the slightly larger display, that is rumored to sit at 6.4-inches in size, and all of the upgraded internals. Speaking of which, the specs are expected to resemble those of the Galaxy S9+. This means Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 will be present inside the US variant, while the international model will feature Samsung’s own Exynos 9810 Octa. Furthermore, the processors will be coupled with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, although 64GB and 256GB variants are also a possibility. Also, Android 8.1 Oreo is expected to ship straight out of the box, although a speedy update to Android P upon its release would be a bonus.

On a final note, rounding out the package will be the camera setup that is currently set to include a variable-aperture lens on the rear along with a secondary telephoto lens, while, on the selfie side of things, an 8-megapixel sensor will likely be present once again.

Currently, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is set to be launched towards the beginning of August, on either August 2 or 9, with the unveiling event itself set to take place in New York and shipments expected to commence towards the end of the month.

Agreed! Waiting to throw my money at Samsung! Hopefully they use a better sensor on the front camera than what they used on the S9 & S9+

If they use the same chipset from the Galaxy S9 in the Note 9, it is actually a good idea to also skip the Note 9. The current Samsung flagship chipset is power-hungry and the new battery size will merely offset the efficiency difference.

We better start digging now cause this is going to bury iPhone X plus.

They’d be lucky to sell half the iPhone X Plus numbers.

The S9 has a 3000 mAh battery, which isn't "pretty much" 4000 mAh, so the subject of this article proves you wrong. You're allowed to wait for the next big thing, but you can continue waiting, as the next generation is always going to improve on the last one. However, i do see your point, as Samsung will launch their anniversary smartphone next year, the Galaxy S10, which will be huge.

Has 7mm been confirmed yet for next year?

4000 mAh in a smartphone that has a headphone jack, stereo speakers and an S-pen inside it? That's just impressive.

Well, they are forced to. The current Samsung flagship chipset is a power hog and a larger battery is one way to mitigate the fiasco.

I've read everything Anandtech has written on the Galaxy S9 and especially the Exynos 9810, but those articles were from the very first release, and few of them were made with a pre-release unit. I think it would be interesting to see if the Exynos Galaxy S9 has improved, as Samsung released a big update, commonly refered to as BRE5, which is generally perceived to have improved efficiency. It would be interesting to see someone re-do the testing. "The current Samsung flagship chipset is a power hog" The Exynos 9810 is not as efficient as the Snapdragon 845, i agree with that much, but to call it a power hog is a bit of an exaggeration. It's still more efficient than the Snapdragon 820, Exynos 8890, Kirin 955 and Kirin 960, while providing much better performance, as proven by the article you linked. The Exynos 9810 has the efficiency of a 8895, while having a raw performance better than the Snapdragon 845, according to the article you linked. So yes, it's a little power hungry, but it's not a power hog. It's as efficient as last gen chips. "(...) a larger battery is one way to mitigate the fiasco." Now this is definitely an exaggeration. It's not a fiasco, it just wasn't as good as it was hyped up to be. The Snapdragon 845 is generally a better SoC this year in most use cases, but the Exynos 9810 is no slouch. Furthermore, i actually own the Exynos Galaxy S9, and i get 5-6 hours of SoT when it has been 24 hours since i've charged it. That's not a fiasco.

But the s10 will have the under display fingerprint scanner and most likely an improvement on battery as well if this Note has 4000mah

Because it's coming out before the Note 10.

My Le Eco LePro3 had (past fried when it got wet and I replaced it with an LG G6) a 4070 mah battery, which usually lasted two full days. I'm all for phones upping the battery to AT LEAST 3500. I just know I probably could not justify the $1000 price tag this Note will probably have.
