Original coverage, August 03, 03:52 AM ET: Samsung has posted a new trailer for the upcoming Galaxy Note 9. The video, published yesterday on Samsung’s New Zealand YouTube channel, shows off the device in the gold and navy color scheme we’ve seen previously and provides a handful of details about the handset.
You can look forward to “all day battery life,” “one terabyte” of storage (with the help of a 512GB card), and an “all-new powerful S Pen,” from the new Note, which is set to be launched next Thursday (August 9). The video also confirms the dual rear camera and fingerprint placement previously rumored, and the presence of the 3.5mm headphone jack for audio.
We don’t get many other details about the device, save for a quick look at the S Pen’s note-taking interface, but we’ve heard enough speculation already to make some good guesses about its other specs and features. It’s said to come with a 6.3-inch display, Snapdragon 845 or Exynos 9810 chipset, up to 8GB of RAM and as much as a 4,000mAh battery; read more in our Galaxy Note 9 rumors hub.
We also don’t know exactly why the video was posted. Judging by the current view count, and its title “SAM0058 YT 1,” we suspect it’s not being widely distributed.
What do you think about how the Note 9 is shaping up? Let me know in the comments.
