Galaxy Note 9: a phone worth the wait?

We already know how big of a hit the Galaxy Note 8 was with its spectacular specs and outstanding performance. What you might not know until now are the detailed specs of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 9. Here is an accumulation of all the major leaks and rumors hovering around about Samsung’s upcoming flagship.

Benchmark results of a mysterious Samsung device have surfaced up recently on Geekbench database and the internet is going crazy over it.


This mystery device of Samsung is said to be the Galaxy Note 9. Apparently, the model number of the phone is SM-N960U which lines up perfectly with the Samsung model numbering system with Galaxy Note 9.

Leaker Evan Blass has leaked on Twitter that the codename for Galaxy Note 9 is going to be “Crown”.

Recently a new certification has emerged on the official website of Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology where two devices are certified namely SM-N9600 and SM-N9608 which could very likely be the Exynos and Qualcomm Snapdragon variants of the Galaxy Note 9.

Design and Specs

A reliable tipster Ice Universe claims that Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will not receive major changes in design than the last year’s Galaxy Note 8. Ice universe has been almost always right about the leaks for Samsung phones and was the first to leak the exact specs of Note 8 as well.

He also posted an image of the upcoming Note 9 smartphone on Twitter and surprisingly Samsung didn’t go for the notch trend in Note 9.

Galaxy Note 9

Galaxy Note 9 appears to be visually identical to its last year predecessor. We can also see that Samsung has decided to keep the Bixby button below the volume rocker as well.

The smartphone is like to be equipped with Snapdragon 845 accompanied by 6GB and 8GB RAM depending upon different storage variant which might be 64GB and 128GB.  It’s also predicted that Galaxy Note 9 will have a 3850mAh or a 4000mAh battery which is a huge upgrade over 3300mAh of Note 8.

As much as we wanted to see and on-screen fingerprint sensor, it is speculated that the Note 9 will not have one, according to a leak on Twitter. This means it will have a sensor on the back just like the Note 8. We do hope that Samsung fixes the awkward placement of fingerprint sensor in the Galaxy Note 9 just like it did in the Galaxy S9 and S9+.
