Samsung is working on a 512GB model of its forthcoming Galaxy Note 9, according to insiders with knowledge of the Korean company’s plans.
The capacious handset will likely be available in South Korea and China first, before rolling out to ‘selected markets’ at a later date.
The news comes days after reports suggested Samsung was due to hold a special event in New York on 2nd August to unveil its latest Note handset.
Recent leaks have pointed towards a phone with a dual lens camera, tweaked fingerprint scanner design and a massive 4,000 mAh battery. The latter could keep the handset running for upwards of 36 hours.
It’s not clear if the 512GB model will also support microSD cards. If it does, then it could easily top 1TB of overall storage, putting rival handsets like the iPhone X in the shade.
Samsung is facing stiff competition to its Galaxy Note update this year, with Apple said to be planning an iPhone X Plus model alongside a more affordable iPhone update with LCD screen.
