It will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC in the US and China while all other markets will get models powered by Samsung’s own Exynos 9810 SoC. It is expected to start with 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage but there is also possibility of a model with 8GB RAM and 512GB storage. While the specifications may not sound great, Samsung is reportedly including carbon fiber heat pipe to make the smartphone effective for gaming and offer smoother performance.
On the camera front, the Galaxy Note 9 will feature horizontally stacked dual rear camera setup. It is expected to be the same dual 12-megapixel cameras with variable aperture seen on the Galaxy S9+. The leaks so far indicate that Samsung will follow on the footsteps of its rival Huawei to include AI features like scene detection and automatic tuning of the camera.
