Ahead of the launch, the specifications of the Note 9 have leaked after Russian Tipster Eldar Murtazin revealed them in a hands-on post of the device.
Samsung's flagship phablet, the Galaxy Note 9 is scheduled to launch at the second Galaxy Unpacked event scheduled for August 9. Murtazin even sheds some light on the weight of the Galaxy Note 9 and says that it has slightly heavier courtesy the 4000mAh battery. The orientation of the camera has also been flipped from vertical to horizontal, and it's being speculated that the rear camera on the Galaxy Note 9 is going to have a variable aperture, similar to the one on Galaxy S9/S9+. 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.
For the past few generations, the Galaxy Note series has adopted the same design language as the Galaxy S model of the same year. The screen is also capable of pushing up to QHD+ resolution in an 18.5:9 aspect ratio and under the hood, it retains the same Octa-Core Exynos 9810 (Snapdragon 845 for U.S. market) processor. Since the Galaxy S9+ came with multiple storage variants for the Malaysia market, there's a good chance that we could be getting larger storage variants as well. The South Korean company has also updated the AR Emojis on the Note 9. The handset will be arriving with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. According to Eldar, the S Pen will support Bluetooth and it could come with added functionality including a new way to unlock the device with a stylus. Also, we also noticed that the S-Pen's clicker is blue in colour, which is the same blue background in the video. As for storage, he reveals that the base model will offer 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. Apart from this, not much is known about the device yet and we expect to get more information in the coming days.
