Galaxy Note 9 has huge screen and battery in new data leakage

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 leaks are becoming more frequent even though it could be still months before the device is ready for a formal launch.

Besides that, the leak also suggests an increase in battery capacity. Earlier, the benchmark listing of Galaxy Note 9 revealed some of the key specs of upcoming Samsung flagship in note series.

Further, what we have seen in previous rumors, the Galaxy Note 9 will be powered by the same chipsets as the Galaxy S9 duo, i.e. Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC or Samsung's Exynos 9810 SoC.

For comparison's sake, the current Note 8 makes do with 3300mAh power pack while the more recent S9 and S9+ come with 3,000mAh and 3,500 mAh battery respectively. A 3,300mAh battery completes the package.

Galaxy J7 Duo has a dual-camera setup which was not previously seen in the Galaxy J Series. Regarding the RAM and the storage, the smartphone could be launched with 6GB RAM along with 64GB or 256GB internal storage. The dual camera uses a 13MP + 5MP sensor, and both cameras have a large aperture of f/1.9. Running Android 7.1.1 Nougat with TouchWiz UX on top, the smartphone is expected to receive the Android Oreo update soon. However, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has been fairly accurate with his predictions, believes Samsung will "likely" drop the feature due to "technological difficulties" from issues with screen protectors to accuracy and speed. It may launch in the colour variation of Midnight Black, Titanium Gray, Coral Blue and Lilac Purple. Connectivity options of the Note 9 could be Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi 802.11, a/ac/b/g/n/n 5GHz and MIMO.

In other features, the smartphone includes a fingerprint scanner and iris scanner for biometric authentication, IP68 certification for water and dust resistance. Note 8, which was listed with model number SM-N960U, will run Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box.

The Galaxy Note 9 is expected to follow the same design strategy as the Galaxy S9 duo, which some might find disappointing.
