Samsung accidentally leaked the Galaxy Note 9 again

Ahead of the launch, Samsung New Zealand has accidentally posted the official intro video for Galaxy Note 9 on its YouTube channel. The image shows the back side of the retail box of Galaxy Note9 which reveals all its specifications, leaving very little for us to imagine about this Samsung flagship.

While nothing is truly official until Samsung unveils the device on August 9, the rumor mill has been churning with leaks about the device for a long time.

Both phones will offer wireless charging, fast charging, a USB-C port and a 3.5mm audio port, and both come with an IP68 rating for dust and waterproofing. With the Galaxy Note 9 though, this could look to double the best Apple has to offer and with the use of an SD expansion, could even potentially quadruple it.

Finally, the S Pen for the Tab S4 has also been upgraded from its predecessor, now offering the Screen-Off Memo like the Note 8 and Galaxy S9, and greater accuracy and control. The phone could be powered by the Snapdragon 845 processor or Exynos 9810, depending on the region. Samsung has also invited users to pre-order the Galaxy Note 9, However, the page is also removed right now.

In addition to the fresh render leaked by Blass, the first hands-on images of the Galaxy Note 9 have been on SlashLeaks.

The RAM is 6 or 8 GB and internal - from 128 to 512 GB. You do, of course, also have the "leaked" aspect.

With the Galaxy Note 9 scheduled for release within the month, there is a possibility that Samsung will be pushing the wireless charger's availability. We've a teaser video about this already but now we know Samsung is seriously bagging on the Note9's battery life as a main feature highlight. We'll have to wait and see what happens in 2019.

The key selling point for the Note 9 is probably going to be the S Pen - and Samsung has gone all out with the included stylus this year. Some initial reports claimed that the new Galaxy Note model, though there are speculations that could.

So expect something new and not just smartphone when Samsung visits the IFA 2018 event.
