Samsung says 'hello to super power' with Galaxy Note 9 ad

Posted August 04, 2018

The launch event for the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is set for next week with a big announcement taking place in NY on August 9. The S Pen is "all new" and "powerful", too.

KitGuru Says: I would have thought an unprecedented 8GB of RAM in a smartphone would count as a unique selling point, which leads me to believe that the Galaxy Note 9 will likely stick to the tried and tested 6GB RAM model. In the video, Samsung is seen teasing the Note 9's all-day battery life and 1TB-ready expandable memory.

Collectively, the Note 9 is confirmed to have a 4000 mAh battery, the largest battery Samsung has ever put in a mass-market smartphone.

What will Samsung's Galaxy Note 9 cost? We get confirmation that the rear fingerprint sensor has moved from the Note 8's annoying off-center position next to the flash, to a central point below the dual cameras.

Originally spotted by SamMobile, the video confirms that there will be a 512GB model of the Note 9 and, excitingly, the handset allows for an additional 512GB of storage space to be added via a microSD card. The reason: This is an official launch video of the Galaxy Note 9, which is now already available on the internet. The 512GB variant has been listed with price RM5099, which in Indian rupees should equal to close to Rs 86,000. A report has now leaked the pricing details of the Galaxy Note 9 as well.

What I said recently about the OnePlus 6 rings true with Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note 9; it's not good enough anymore to make a good phone with good features. Looks-wise, it doesn't look very different from the Galaxy Note 8, which has been tipped time and again.

When will the Galaxy Note 9 be released?
