Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9 is pegged for a 9th August launch. And with that date closing in, reports about the Korean tech giant’s plans are proliferating.
Now tipsters from Russia have got in on the act, claiming that while the 6.3–inch screen comes in at the same size as last year’s Galaxy Note 8, it will actually be much brighter.
Maximum brightness is said to be 1150 nits, making it the brightest smartphone screen on the market.
The Galaxy Note 9 is also purported to be marginally shorter and wider that its predecessor, by the odd millimetre, a difference that even the most eagle–eyed of mobile owners are unlikely to spot.
The same insiders back up recent claims seen on social media that the Galaxy Note 9 will have a massive 4,000 mAh battery, as well as revealing that Samsung is set to offer a basic 6GB RAM/128GB storage option alongside larger 8GB/256GB and 8GB/512GB editions.
The latter, sadly, may only be up for grabs in Korea. All details will be officially unveiled at Samsung’s New York event on 9th August.
