With the Galaxy S9 duo out of the way, Samsung Electronics is now focusing on its next big thing, the Galaxy Note 9 phablet with an S Pen, which should be arriving in early August, if not a little earlier if we are to trust the current rumour mill.
The Galaxy Note 9 phablet will inherit some of the key design elements from the Galaxy S9 series, including the vertical alignment of the main camera’s dual sensors and fingerprint sensor.
It is rumoured to feature a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED panel with QHD+ screen resolution, and it will not have a notch. Samsung is not keen on adopting the notch that most of the Asian mobile makers have already adopted, including Asus on its ZenFone 5 phones, Huawei on its P20 smartphones. LG will also follow in Apple’s footsteps with G7 ThinQ, as well as OnePlus with its upcoming OnePlus 6 flagship killer.
Another interesting feature the Galaxy Note 9 will receive from Samsung, is a larger battery. Some unverified sources claim the Galaxy Note 9 phablet will come equipped with 4,000 mAh battery, which along with Samsung’s Exynos 9 series chipset or the Snapdragon 845 (depends on the market region), it will increase the battery life with at least 15-20% in comparison to Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8 from last year.
As for pricing, we are looking at a phablet device which will set you back at least 1.000 Euros, unless you can get a better deal from one of your local carriers, but that only if you are an older client (at least 3-4 years on the same network).
