Samsung Galaxy Note 9 to have bigger display and battery

- Adrian Ungureanu

New information has emerged about Samsung’s next flagship phablet, the Galaxy Note 9, which is expected to be released in the second half of this year.

It looks like the new Galaxy Note 9 will have a slightly larger screen than the Galaxy Note 8. If the last year’s model has a 6.3-inch screen, its successor will have a 6.4-inch screen. As a comparison, the other big screen smartphone from Samsung, Galaxy S9+, has a 6.2-inch screen.

It is still speculated that there is a chance that the new phablet will have a fingerprint sensor integrated into the display, but nothing is certain regarding this matter, because there are many contradictory rumors.

Another interesting aspect is that Galaxy Note 9 will get a bigger battery. Galaxy Note 8 has a 3,300 mAh battery, but the new rumors indicate two larger variants for Galaxy Note 9: 3,850mAh and 4,000mAh.

Otherwise, because Galaxy Note 9 appeared at Geekbench, we know that it will have Snapdragon 845 and 6GB RAM. It’ll be shipped with Android 8.1 Oreo.

Normally, Galaxy Note 9 should be released either at the end of August or early September, if we look at the strategy adopted by Samsung in recent years, but there are speculation that it could be launched earlier, given that display production is scheduled to begin this month, two months earlier than last year.
