Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will officially launch on August 9, but it looks like a detailed hands-on/first impression for the phone is already up with all the key specifications mentioned. Some new tweaks to the Samsung Experience UI are also being said to be on the way. So here is what Samsung plans to offer with the Galaxy Note 9. However, the weight of the next-generation Galaxy Note handset is said to be slightly increased due to a larger 4000mAh battery pack than the 3300mAh battery pack available on last year's model.
He further explains that users will have to look really hard to distinguish Note 9 from the Note 8 as it has the same front panel and "exactly the same material". The only differentiator is on the back as the device now has a horizontally placed dual camera setup and a fingerprint sensor placed below them. It is also reported to come with some video enhancements. The Note 9 will continue with the face and iris scanner for unlocking the device as well. He brought attention to the fact that the new phone sported curved Super AMOLED-backed "Infinity Display" panel which was the same as the one in Galaxy Note 8, which debuted in August previous year.
One of the biggest pain points of a Samsung flagship has always been its battery.
It also seems that the new updated version of the AlwaysOn Display will likely appear in the Galaxy S10, and not in the Note 9 series. There will also be an upgrade in the Optical Image Stabilisation compared to its predecessor. Storage as standard will be 128GB with 6GB of RAM, but there will also be 8GB/256GB and 8GB/512GB versions as well.
The big change will be the S Pen, which has been "completely reworked", according to the report. Samsung will be hosting a live stream of the event as well.
