Samsung is now working on the Galaxy Note 9 smartphone, which is already rumoured to feature a similar design as the Galaxy Note 8. A tipster going by name ICE universe on Twitter has now stated the upcoming Note 9 will have a 4000mAh battery and the tipster's 100% sure about this information. There have been a numerous reports stating the Note 9 will have a bigger battery than any other Galaxy S and Galaxy Note device. And the battery capacity seems to be a 4000mAh. The Galaxy Note users have been asking Samsung to include a bigger battery on a Note smartphone for years now and that wish seems to be coming true with the Note 9.
Usually, smartphone manufacturers will not add bigger batteries to their flagship smartphones, but that seems to be changing this year. Earlier, Huawei added a 4000mAh unit to its P20 Pro flagship smartphone and now Samsung will be adding the same unit to the Galaxy Note 9. This seems to be a great move, but at the same time, some consumers will hate this because it increases the overall weight of the smartphone. Huawei has done a decent job in keeping the device to 180 grams and 7.8mm thickness. It will be interesting to see how Samsung takes on the ergonomics challenge for the Note 9.
Besides the battery size, the Galaxy Note 9 is expected to boast similar design to the Galaxy Note 8. The Note 9 will retain the dual cameras to the back but this time around we might see Samsung adding the variable aperture technology it introduced with the Galaxy S9+. Of course, the Note 9 will have a primary RGB sensor and a secondary telephoto lens for 2x lossless zoom images.
Other features of the Galaxy Note 9 include Snapdragon 845 chipset, up to 6GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage. Yes, Samsung is rumoured to launch a 512GB storage variant of the Note 9 at a hefty price.
