Samsung Galaxy Note 9's release reveals accuracy of its many leaks
The latest iteration of Samsung’s Galaxy Note line was scheduled for release on August 9, 2018 in New York at 8:00 EST/9:00 PST (or 16:00 BST). This event has been beset by multiple leaks, which have collectively claimed to have revealed all of the latest phablet’s specs and features.
For example, the news circulating around the Galaxy Note 9 asserts that the S Pen, a stylus that is one of the line’s main USPs, comes with Bluetooth this time. This may enable the S Pen to act as a “remote control” for the device in many respects. Other leaks suggest that the S Pen’s color may be different from that of the body of one model of the phone for the first time.
Like many other recent Samsung Galaxy flagships, the Note 9 may also come with a new Exynos chip (the Exynos 9810, in this case) but only for EMEA markets. It will ship with the Snapdragon 845 processor elsewhere in the world. The Galaxy Note 9 was purported to sport a 2K 6.4 inch (and thus about 515 ppi) display with about 84% screen-to-body ratio. The base model was to come with 128GB of storage and 6GB of RAM. However, other rumors have pointed to an alternative SKU with 8GB RAM and 512GB of internal storage. The Note 9 may also support SD cards of as much as 512GB in size.
However, now that the event is over, we know that these speculations were dead-on. Stay tuned to notebookcheck.net for more on the Galaxy Note 9’s performance and UX; our review will be available soon.
