The upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will serve as the successor of 2017’s Galaxy Note 8, bringing in lots of changes on the inside and a small number of changes on the outside. There was a last-minute design change that we will be seeing on the Galaxy Note 9, but it looks like the flagship is going to be unveiled with better features than what we were hearing about earlier.
Samsung Galaxy Note 9: Expected Launch Date, Battery Features
According to the specifications, the Galaxy Note 9 will ship with a bigger battery than what was seen on the Galaxy Note 8. The Galaxy Note 8 shipped with a small 3300mAh battery, which was a sad thing to see for a smartphone that carried an expensive price. Samsung’s last-minute design change means that the smartphone will come with a larger 4000mAh battery.
The flagship might also ship with fast wireless charging abilities so you will not always have to rely on fast-charging via the hard-plugging manner. If the Galaxy Note 9 comes with 15W wireless charging then it will become much easier for users to ditch the traditional way of charging and rely on fast wireless charging to get the job done.
As for the release date, the Note 9 is expected to be launched during the month of August. Some reports are saying that the phone will be arriving on the 2nd of August, while others are commenting that the phone will be launched on the 9th of August.
Galaxy Note9 will be released in New York on August 2 or 9.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9: Expected Price in India
Since the Galaxy Note 9 is going through a design, it could not just delay the launch of the Galaxy Note 9 but increase its price as well. The Galaxy Note 8 being sold in India costs Rs. 51900 for the base storage model, which features 64GB of onboard memory and 6GB of RAM. The remaining two models that are being sold come in 128 and 256GB storage versions, and feature the same amount of RAM. The price of the Galaxy Note 9 could start from $900, which when we take currency conversions into consideration brings us to a total of Rs. 60853.50, unofficially.
Samsung Galaxy Note 9: Rumoured Specifications, Features
The Galaxy Note 9 is reportedly getting a different design than the Galaxy Note 8. Samsung’s Infinity Display is here to stay and so is the 18.5:9 aspect ratio using the company’s Super AMOLED technology. This would mean a resolution of 2960 x 1440 but using software, users will be able to decrease that resolution when they want to save battery life more than anything.
The new Galaxy Note 9 from Samsung is said to feature a 6.4-inch display and will feature a Snapdragon 845 and Exynos 9810 for various different markets. Samsung is also said to be working on its Exynos 9820, but that is going to be for the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus so we’ll leave that for discussion at a later time.
While the base model, we could be seeing the flagship ship with 6GB of RAM, and if Samsung wants to stay up with the competition, perhaps even 8GB RAM and up to 512GB of internal storage could be sold in different, but limited markets. The Galaxy Note 9 could also get Samsung’s new and improved Bixby 2.0 voice assistant along with Google Assistant.
The camera setup on the Galaxy Note 9 will be similar to the previous model, but improved camera specifications are reportedly coming to the smartphone. With the Galaxy S9 Plus, you got a dual-aperture mode, which is a first in mobile photography so expect that to be available on the Note 9 too. The battery as mentioned above will be a 4000mAh capacity. The Exynos 9810 and Snapdragon 845 do deliver better efficiency and combine that with Samsung’s battery improvement through its UI tweaking and you will be able to get significant battery life on the upcoming flagship.
As for the S-Pen, it too is expected to get a wide-range of improvements and for those that require a lot of productivity to be done through their smartphone, the new and improved stylus could bring a lot of utility to the table.
