The U.S. and South Korea are expected to receive the Snapdragon 845 edition of the Galaxy Note 9.
The new development emerges just after Samsung officially revealed the second edition of its Galaxy Unpacked event where it is set to launch the new Galaxy Note model. The handset is rumoured to have a design similar to last year's Galaxy Note 8 but include a larger battery pack and more colour options than its predecessor. 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.
Yes, it will be the successor of the South Korean giant, of course, Samsung's Galaxy Note 8, and it will appear at the event held in NY. Eldar has claimed that he has spent some time with the pre-production unit of the Note 9, which he claims to be very similar to the Note 8 in terms of design. 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.
In the imaging department, the Note9 is expected to share a similar dual-camera system as the Galaxy S9+.
In terms of performance, the Samsung Note 9 will be powered by the Snapdragon 845 SoC in Korea and USA and an Exynos SoC in other markets including India. Samsung has also updated AR Emoji but no details have been provided about that. 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. The Russian tipster also made it clear that the entry-level version of the phone would come with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage, and the higher variant would pack 8GB RAM and 256GB storage as well as 8GB RAM and 512GB storage configurations. For storage, all the models will support microSD card for expansion. He also notes that with Galaxy Note 9, the focus will be on appealing to the business audience again, which has been the core user base for the smartphone. The official invitation also puts an emphasis on the new S Pen in order to drop some hints about what the buyers can expect.
