A leaker, Evan Blass shared the photo of the Galaxy Note 9, which shows the phone alongside the yellow S-Pen. There are leaked images of the phone with blue, brown, black, lavender and grey color variant but recent leaks suggest that fewer colors will actually be available. This time, there is brown alongside the blue and black colors. The yellow/gold colored S-Pen, as shown in the Samsung’s official invite indicates that the Blue Note 9 will feature along with golden S-Pen.
Traditionally, the company matched the handset color with S-Pen but this time they have done something different. Let’s see in which colors the handset debuts in the market!
Traditionally, the Note series used to come with a big-screen device with a 5.7-inch display, but the Note 8 is an exception. Note 8 featured a new size of a 6.3-inch display. And the Note 9 is will sport the same screen size like Note 8. The display will be Quad HD+ resolution.
The first Samsung device to offer a dual-rear camera setup was Note 8. And the Note 9 will continue the legacy with two cameras. Rumors suggested that the rear cameras will both be 12-megapixel with optical image stabilization feature.
Well, nothing is clear about the resolution. But no doubt, the company will add new features and enhancements. It is said that the camera is one of the main reasons why people buy a Note and therefore the company will continue to pay attention to it. You can expect AR Emoji to debut on Note series with the Note 9.
Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9 will be running Android Oreo. But whether it’s Android 8.0.0 or Android 8.1 isn’t specified yet. The Note 9 could debut with some significant software pre-installed. According to 9to5Google and XDA Developers, the smartphone’s release will mark the debut of the popular Fortnite battle royale game. The company wants the Note 9 to be a great phone for hardcore gamers.
WinFuture says you will be able to hook up a Note 9 to an external display. You can use a DisplayPort-enabled USB-C cable for the purpose. This means you wouldn’t need to lug around a DeX Pad anymore.
