With less than a week to go until its August 9 launch, the Galaxy Note 9 is already all over the web, including an official product video that was unleashed — apparently by mistake — by Samsung itself. Now, an image of a Russian Galaxy Note 9 retail box confirms most details that we bumped into so far.

The next-gen Samsung Galaxy Note phablet has been in the rumor mill for a while now, so the many rumors and leaks we bumped into over the last few weeks covered virtually everything about it. Even better, Samsung recently uploaded an official video that should not have been revealed yet, so the August 9 launch event should not come with any big surprises. To make it all even better for those who want to know all about the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 already, a retail box from Russia has just surfaced online as well.

According to the details visible on the aforementioned retail box, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will reach Russia with 128 GB of internal storage space (other versions are expected as well, of course), a 6.4-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED display, a 12 MP + 12 MP main camera setup with variable aperture + fixed aperture, an 8 MP selfie shooter, a new S Pen that can be used as a remote control for the camera and other apps, a 4,000 mAh battery, AKG-tuned audio, an iris scanner, IP 68-rated protection against water and dust, Samsung Pay and wireless charging support, 960 fps slow-motion video recording.

In addition to the above, we should expect a top-of-the-line processor (Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 or a high-end Exynos chip, depending on the market), 6 GB of memory, Bixby 2.0 support, and (most likely) Android 8.1 Oreo

As everyone knows already, the official launch will take place on August 9. Even more, Samsung will begin shipping the new Galaxy Note before the end of the month — on August 24, to be more accurate. The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is also supposed to arrive alongside a Wear OS-driven wearable which is simply known as Galaxy Watch for now.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
