Samsung is the world’s number one smartphone maker, shipping hundreds of millions of units every year. Samsung’s newly-launched Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus are among the best-selling flagship phones on the market. During the first three months of the year, the South Korean firm shipped more than 10 million Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus units.
Samsung is expected to launch the next generation Galaxy Note phone this year. Rumors regarding the Galaxy Note 9 have been circulating around for months. Most rumors say that the device will come with never-seen features and changes. One such feature lies in an in-display fingerprint scanner.
In reality, an in-display fingerprint scanner is not something out there as it has been available on a Vivo-branded phone. The Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus were previously rumored to include an in-display fingerprint reader, but we found nothing at the launch event.
According to the latest sources, the upcoming Galaxy Note 9 will include a 4,000mAh battery, a significant upgrade over the last year’s model that packs a 3,300mAh battery. Today’s sources go against what we heard in previous rumors that the upcoming Galaxy Note 9 will come with a 3,850mAh battery.
Tech experts say that the Note 9 will sport a bigger battery because the device will have a larger display. A bigger power pack will offer enough power to handle multiple tasks at the same time. Under the hood, the Galaxy Note 9 will be powered by the Snapdragon 845 processor, thus offering a much-improved performance when compared to the last year’s model.
Besides, the device is expected to come with 6GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. Sources say that the phone will feature Samsung’s own Exynos 9810 Octa for international markets. When it comes to software, the device will run Android P at launch. Rumors say that the phone will come with a better and smarter Bixby, offering users multiple choices to interact with apps and services.
In terms of the camera, the device will feature a dual-camera setup this year. However, Samsung will upgrade the lens to offer better photos in low-light conditions. The Note 9 is expected to be unveiled in August this year, one month earlier than Apple’s new iPhones.
