The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Will Feature A 3850mAh Battery, ‘Teddy Brown’ Color, Virtual Fingerprint Sensing And A New S-Pen Suggests Old Source
Right now, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 isn't a regular feature of the rumor mill. This is normal since we've got at least four months before it's launched. However, the rumor mill hasn't been completely silent either. While the lack of all the relevant details suggests that Samsung has something big brewing, it's always comforting to have concrete details to go on. Especially as Samsung has finalized all of the Note 9's major details by this point, in all likelihood. With that in mind, we've got more details for you today, straight from an old source. Head over below for all of them.
Samsung Will Design A Brand New S-Pen For The Galaxy Note 9, Launch The Device With A New Color Option, A 3850mAh Battery And More Reveals Latest Leak
As far as leaks go, we just might have a big one on our hands today. Prior to Samsung's Galaxy S8/Galaxy S8+ launch, one feature consistently surfaced on the rumor mill. If you're a regular, you'll know that we're talking about virtual fingerprint recognition. Nearly every flagship mobile gadget had the feature rumored for it prior to launch, but none actually came with it.
Now, after Vivo debuted under-the-display fingerprint recognition, looks like Samsung just might follow suit. Since the last few months of 2017, we've heard a lot of rumors for the Galaxy Note 9 and the new biometric recognition tech. However, former KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo put a wet blanket on all of it when he claimed that Samsung isn't having much luck testing the feature with screen protectors.
Famous tipster Ice Universe is back and he's on fire. According to him, Samsung will make several, or seven upgrades on the Galaxy Note 9. These are:
- New S-Pen
- Crown UX
- Bixby 2.0
- Exclusive under-the-display fingerprint recognition
- 3850mAh battery with 18W fast charge
- A new 'Teddy Brown' color
- Camera upgrades
Out of these, the most intriguing are the bits about a new S-Pen, a brand new color, and virtual fingerprint recognition. If Ice Universe is correct, then this means Samsung has been successful with virtual fingerprint recognition on the Galaxy Note 9. If you ask us, we're hoping that Seoul debuts the feature on its next flagship for 2018.
After all, Apple needs all the competition that it can get and while all credit to Vivo for being the first, it's Samsung which has the true potential to take the ball to Cupertino's court. Of course, we'd still advise you take the bit about virtual fingerprint recognition with a fistful of salt. While Ice Universe is a regular, he's been proven wrong before. With a feature as complex as virtual fingerprint recognition, it's safe to err on the side of caution.
In addition, the tipster also promises us a brand new color for the Note 9. This is a good change, demonstrating how Samsung hasn't forgotten its aesthetic lessons learned from Apple. Now if only rumors for a variant with 8GB also start to surface, we'll have a good device on our hands. Thoughts? Let us know what you think in the comments section below and stay tuned. We'll keep you updated on the latest.
