A new day, and yet another Samsung Galaxy Note 9 leak. Ahead of the August 9 launch, a new leak has hinted at the battery capacity of the upcoming phablet. In line with previous rumors, the battery unit on the Galaxy Note 9 will be bigger than the one powering the Galaxy Note 8.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will feature a 4,000mAh battery, which has been revealed by Brazil’s National Telecommunications Agency (ANATEL). A leaked certification document, shared by Slashleaks, clearly mentions the 4,000mAh battery capacity, and the fact that the device belongs to Samsung. To put this into perspective, last year’s Galaxy Note 8 was backed by a 3,300mAh battery. As is the case with Samsung’s flagship devices, the Galaxy Note 9’s battery should also come with support for fast charging, and fast wireless charging.

Additionally, an alleged unboxing video of the Galaxy Note 9 has surfaced online that hints at the phablet’s key specifications and features. The specs seen on the retail box are quite similar to what we have seen on this year’s Galaxy S9, and Galaxy S9+. The phablet is said to flaunt a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with 2960×1440 pixels resolution, and 18.5:9 aspect ratio. The box also reveals that the device will be powered by either a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 or Exynos 9810 chipset.

The base variant is expected to feature 6GB RAM, and 64GB storage. The top-end variant, on the other hand, is expected to feature 8GB RAM, and 512GB storage. The retail box also reveals the camera specifications – 12-megapixel + 12-megapixel sensors with OIS support.

Based on what we have come across before, the Galaxy Note 9 is expected to be available in a multitude of colors. These include black, black, brown, grey, and Lilac Purple. The phablet will also come with S Pen support, which is expected to be much improved compared to last year.
