Samsung Galaxy Note 9 might return to the roots of the Galaxy Note series by offering a bigger battery than Galaxy S series. The Galaxy Note 9 will be the next big smartphone launch from the South Korean company, and is rumored to debut on August 9.
A leaked render recently revealed that Samsung is sticking to the horizontal dual camera placement with the Galaxy Note 9. It also revealed that the smartphone will move the fingerprint sensor below the camera module, making it more accessible than the side-mounted sensor on the Galaxy Note 8. Now, a new leak claims that the Galaxy Note 9 will pack a massive 4,000mAh battery.
100% sure, Galaxy Note9 battery 4000mAh

The information comes courtesy of tipster Ice Universe who claims that he is “100 percent sure” about the Galaxy Note 9 getting a 4,000mAh battery pack. Earlier, reports indicated that the Galaxy Note 9 will get a battery with capacity of anywhere between 3,850mAh and 4,000mAh. If Ice Universe’s claim turns correct then Samsung might have settled for a 4,000mAh battery pack. This will be a 21 percent improvement over the 3,300mAh battery pack found under the hood of Galaxy Note 8.
Since the launch of very first Galaxy Note smartphone, Samsung has differentiated the Galaxy Note series from the Galaxy S series by offering a larger display and battery. However, that difference seems to be blurring with every new launch of the Galaxy S or Galaxy Note smartphone.

The leaks so far indicate that the Galaxy Note 9 will feature a slightly bigger 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with aspect ratio of 18.5:9. The smartphone has been benchmarked with both Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC as well as Samsung’s own Exynos 9810. This confirms that Galaxy Note 9 will use Qualcomm’s flagship processor in the US and China, while rest of the markets will get Exynos-powered variant.
The Galaxy Note 9 is also expected to come with 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage as standard but there are possibilities of 64GB and 256GB storage variants being offered. It will also get the dual rear camera system similar to Galaxy S9+ with primary sensor supporting variable aperture. The Galaxy Note 9 will run Android 8.1 Oreo with Samsung Experience 9.0 out-of-the-box.
Bloomberg reported that Samsung will launch the Galaxy Note 9 on August 9, weeks ahead of the official start of IFA 2018 in Berlin. The smartphone will not bring any major improvements when compared to its predecessor, but a huge battery will be a welcome change.
