Well-known tipster Eldar Murtazin who has used the pre-production unit of the Note 9 in order to evaluate its hardware and software has shared some juicy details about the flagship smartphone.
Samsung has confirmed that it will be debuting the Galaxy Note 9 on August 9. It was his observation that the Galaxy Note 9 and the previous Galaxy Note 8 bore high resemblance with each other and there were very minimal changes in the device. The design of the Note 9 will be similar to the Galaxy Note 8, according to the hands-on. The company recently sent out the media invites for the launch event to be held at the Barclays Center in New York, USA. Murtazin reveals that the cameras on the Galaxy Note 9 will too come with variant aperture - same as the Galaxy S9 - and will deliver an improved performance in terms of low-light photography and better optical image stabilization (OIS). Eldar has claimed that the Note 9's display will offer improved sunlight visibility compared to its predecessor.
In the imaging department, the Note9 is expected to share a similar dual-camera system as the Galaxy S9+. This was something that the leaks had also reported. The screen is also capable of pushing up to QHD+ resolution in an 18.5:9 aspect ratio and under the hood, it retains the same Octa-Core Exynos 9810 (Snapdragon 845 for USA market) processor. Where the storage/RAM specifications go, the Note 9 will look like this: 6 RAM and 128 GB, 8GB RAM and 256GB as well as 8GB RAM and 512GB storage. All of them support external microSD cards. Some new tweaks to the Samsung Experience UI are also being said to be on the way. Something New: S Pen According to Murtazin, Samsung has completely redesigned the S Pen and has added Bluetooth support to it. Murtazin highlighted that there would be some work models to lure in business users of the phone. Notably, the official invitation of the Galaxy Note 9 showed a glimpse of the new S Pen to suggest its new offerings.
