Samsung is all set to debut the Galaxy Note 9 smartphone on August 9 in New York. The company has already sent media invites for the same, and ahead of the official unveiling, we have come across leaked renders and specifications of the smartphone. Now, at a media appearance, Samsung CEO DJ Koh was spotted using the Galaxy Note 9.

We’ve come across a lot of leaks, and it is evident that the Galaxy Note 9 won’t look any different from the existing Galaxy Note 8. However, one way to quickly differentiate between the two devices would be the relocated fingerprint sensor, which is now expected to sit below to dual camera modules. The photo was posted by @eldhovarghese8 on social networking site Weibo.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 specifications and features

From what we know so far, Samsung is likely to debut the Infinity Display 2.0 with the Galaxy Note 9. There aren’t many details about what’s new with the display, but we will know more as the event draws closer. The size and dimensions are expected the be same as the Galaxy Note 8, but the screen could be a bit larger at 6.4-inches, compared to 6.3-inch.

The Galaxy Note 9 is likely to be powered by Snapdragon 845 SoC in the US, and Exynos 9810 in other markets. It is also expected to come with up to 8GB of RAM and up to 512GB onboard storage. What’s more, the battery capacity may also be bumped up to 4,000mAh.

However, one of the biggest upgrades the Galaxy Note 9 could get would be in the form of S Pen stylus. It was already spotted in FCC filing, revealing Bluetooth connectivity which could enable remote camera shutter, and the ability to control music playback using the S Pen.

In the photography department, the dual aperture camera, and dual camera setup are likely to be in tow, along with 960fps super slow-motion video recording. Also, the AR Emoji that debuted with the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will also be a part of the Galaxy Note 9.
