New report details Galaxy Note 9 features, reveals Galaxy Note 8 sales may be halted

New report details Galaxy Note 9 features, reveals Galaxy Note 8 sales may be halted
With the Galaxy Note 9 launch officially set for August 9, the rate at which leaks continue to appear is expected to grow as the unveiling approaches. Today, however, thanks to notorious tipster Eldar Murtazin, a detailed report about Samsung’s next flagship has been released, confirming various aspects.

The industry expert claims to have spent some time with Samsung’s upcoming flagship ahead of its release and confirms that, from the front, the differences between the Galaxy Note 9 and last year’s flagship are extremely minimal. In fact, the only major design difference overall is the repositioned fingerprint scanner on the rear, which now sits below the camera setup. While on the topic of the camera, it’s worth pointing out that no major changes have been made, with the device retaining the setup seen on the Galaxy S9+. Nevertheless, Murtazin does state that the overall performance has been improved thanks to new algorithms and enhanced optical image stabilization. Also, as an added bonus, the company once again looks set to introduce updates to the AR Emoji feature.

Now, in addition to all of this, the tipster also notes that the Galaxy Note 9 feels quite a bit heavier in comparison to its predecessor, a detail that coincides with previous reports of a much larger 4,000mAh battery. This will bring significant improvements to the battery life, allowing the smartphone to last up to two days on a single charge and reproduce non-stop video at maximum brightness for up to 25 hours. Furthermore, Murtazin also mentions updates to the S Pen, which is now said to include Bluetooth connectivity, as stated by recent leaks.

In regards to the specs Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9 will offer, the Snapdragon 845 will be present inside the US and South Korean units while remaining international markets will gain access to the Exynos 9810 Octa. When it comes to the storage configurations, the base model will ship with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. However, the company is understood to also be preparing an offering with 8GB of RAM that will include either 256GB or 512GB of internal storage depending on the buyer’s preference.

When the eventual release of the device arrives, it’s stated Samsung will aim the smartphone at business users primarily. Perhaps on a more interesting note, though, is the claim that the South Korean giant will stop selling last year’s Galaxy Note 8 and, in preparation for this, the company has reportedly already stopped shipping the device out to partners. Instead, retailers are simply selling remaining stock at this point in time.

Yeah, because the Note 8 was a mid-ranger lol And hey, I thought you don't like it when Android trolls comment on Apple articles, why don't you take your own advise and stop trolling Android and Samsung articles?

He didn't say you mentioned apple, he said you don't like it when Samsung fans post in a apple article. No where did he say you mentioned apple.

You are such a troll it's ridiculous. Tell us all about which flagship from this year is leaps & bounds different from the previous offering. I hate to break it to you, the jumps are all minimal nowadays.

How about LG G7 and OnePlus 6?

Comparing the specs on both of these devices to their predecessors, I don't see any huge jumps.

I was letting him know it won't be a major upgrade. You should read to understand, not to reply.

They need to fix their awful portrait mode, it has to be the worst amongst all flagships on the market.

Interesting opinion. While no one can touch the Pixel for portrait mode quality especially when it achives these results with a single lens, many reviews were back and forth on iPhone eks and Note8 in quality of synthetic bokeh shots. I've never really had any concerns with the Note8 results.

They're washed out, and full of noise, and the fact that you can't use the flash when you switch to portrait mode, makes indoor pictures almost unusable. And I would argue that the P20 Pro goes toe to toe with the Pixel when it comes to portrait mode.

Remember the one I sent you of my cat? That was taken from my X.

Thats true, because of simple reason: portrait mode on S9+ and Note 8 / 9 is made with telephoto lens. Hence bad picture quality indoors - F2.4 + smaller sensor.

Owning both, I can honestly say the IPhone X has better portrait mode. The Notes has more features (adjustable blur) being one.

Posts: 6876; Member since: Feb 10, 2012

I do remember bro. And yeah, sadly more features but still with an average quality.

Hopefully the image processing is better this time.

Aye, its all nice and dandy and all but... There's just one tiny itty bitty problem; I'M BROKE! I just don't see myself dropping a whole bloody one and a half grand on a PHONE while my truck is in dire need of an eternal retirement (Like yours truly). Now, I do have kidneys but... They're vintage, for crying out loud! Oh well, old men shouldn't be looking at fancy phones anyway. They should be looking at fancy coffins and blueprints of a grave! G'Day!

Rear camera won't be the same being that the rears on the 9/+ are updated from the Note 8.
