Samsung’s next flagship phablet, the Galaxy Note 9 will be announced on August 9. The company has posted a video of the official 'Unpacked' even online. If the information circulating on the internet is to be believed, then the Galaxy Note 9 could be unveiled in five different colour options - black, gray, violet or purple, blue, and brown. Seeing the Galaxy Note 9 in a bunch of colours wouldn’t be something new as Samsung has launched its flagship phones in several colour options in the past. The Galaxy Note 8 was available in deep sea blue, midnight black, orchid gray, and maple gold.
According to SAM MOBILE, “The Exynos 9810-powered Galaxy Note 9 model number SM-N960N posted a single-core and multi-core score of 2737 and 9064 respectively. The unlocked Galaxy Note 9 model number SM-N960F with the same chip has posted a single-core and multi-core score of 3716 and 8984 respectively.” The Geekbench listing also shows that the devices are running on Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box. The Note 9 is expected to launch in two memory variants – 6GB and 8GB RAM.
Recently, a Russian blogger claimed to have used the phone and said on a news platform mobile-review.com that the S-Pen will have Bluetooth capabilities. The frequent tipster, Ice Universe, has also said that the Bluetooth capabilities of the S-Pen will also enable users to control music playback and use the stylus as a long-range timer to take group photos.
It's still not clear what all specs to expect in the phone, but going by the leaks on the internet, it with most likely feature an Infinity Display, similar to the Galaxy S8, S9 series and the Galaxy Note 8. If rumours are to be believed, the Galaxy Note 9 might just be an incremental update over the Galaxy Note 8. It is expected to feature thinner bezels and the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor will most likely be placed centrally, below the camera. It could feature a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED screen with an 18.5:9 display aspect ratio.
