There have been numerous rumors around the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, so we have an idea about how the device would look and be. But all that is still unofficial until the device is launched next month.

In the meantime we can peruse some more rumors about the Galaxy Note 9, which Phonearena claims are from credible sources. These credible tipsters hail from Benelux and Russia who claim to have got their hands on the device. They suggest that the new device will sport a better display along with screen with record brightness, and sport a heavier build.

With the Infinity Display 2.0 about to debut on the Galaxy Note 9, the device it is set to be sturdier along with a horizontal setup of the camera in the back. The last rumors gave the phone same dimensions as its predecessors, but the new assessment shows that it is slightly larger a little heavier than before. The increased weight is likely due to the increased battery capacity to 4,000mAh, and the independent power source of the S Pen.

The phone will also be faster than before, and will be using either Exynos 9810 or Snapdragon 845 chipsets. And apparently unlike the Galaxy Note 8 that had RAM options, this one will only options of internal memory which are probably, 8GB/256GB and 8GB/512GB. As is customary, all the versions of the mobile will not be available in all countries.

In the display segment, the Galaxy Note 9 will retain a 6.3-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED display which will have an enhanced brightness of 1,150 nits, according to the tipsters. Besides these there will also be a dramatic AOD rework.

As for the cameras, the tipsters claim that there is not change with the 12 megapixel sensors that are identical to the ones on Galaxy S9+, but the results will be better. The variable aperture feature as well as the light sensitivity of the cameras seem to have been improved. The algorithm has improved, which has also made a difference to the AR Emojis.

Both the sources confirm that the battery capacity of the device has been increased to 4,000mAh, which is a lot more than last time. According to them the battery lasted for about 23-25 hours on single charge with video playing on loop on max brightness.
