Samsung Galaxy Note9 camera leak

The Samsung Galaxy Note9 will be unpacked next week and expectedly, there’s been a spate of leaks and rumours. The latest one is the most telling yet – a short hands-on video that confirms the device’s exterior design. So much for unpacking then.

If anything, the video reaffirms earlier leaked images. The Galaxy Note9 will not detract too much from its predecessor’s design, keeping to the elongated candy bar form factor with a near bezel-less display.

What’s clearly different is the horizontal dual-camera array, now with the fingerprint sensor moved to the bottom. This is a better position, IMHO, reflecting what’s seen on the current Galaxy S9 and S9+.

Samsung appears to be sticking to the variable aperture lens, as found on the Galaxy S9+. The mechanical lens system switching between f/1.5 for low light and “bokehlicious” shots and f/2.4 for brightly-lit conditions. This can also be toggled manually in Pro mode.

As far as optics go, nothing new is expected. That said, there’s a rumour that the device may be capable of shooting 960fps slow-mo video for 0.4 seconds, twice as long as the Galaxy S9 series. Want to know what 960fps looks like? Read this post.

In other areas, the Galaxy Note9 will retain the 6.3-inch Super AMOLED Infinity Display as found on its predecessor. It’s more or less confirmed that the device will come in 128GB and 512GB configurations, and as leaked on Lazada last week, may be priced at MYR4,299 and MYR5,099 respectively.

Under the hood, the device will sport an Exynos 9810 (or Snapdragon 845) and will come with up to 8GB of RAM.

Samsung has been teasing about battery life, more storage and better multi-tasking via its social channels. The Galaxy Note9 is expected to feature a bigger 4,000mAh battery.

The S Pen may be the one with the biggest change, featuring a new look in shocking yellow and may have Bluetooth connectivity built-in.

The Galaxy Note9 will launch on 9 August 2018. Stay tuned for updates.
