Samsung’s stylus-totting flagship – the Galaxy Note9 is slated for a 9 August release in New York. As traditional as tradition comes, leaks and rumours have been aplenty. No change there, despite Samsung’s recent teaser tweet, “Change is coming August 9th 2018.”
The latest leak comes from German website Winfuture, revealed by serial leakster Roland Quandt. The Galaxy Note9 will offer a 512GB storage option, complementing the base 128GB (up from 64GB last year).
Samsung Galaxy Note9 512GB is real. Coming for ~1250 Euro in Black or Blue for Europe. (~1150 GBP) Base model now carries 128GB (up from 64 last year), priced at ~1050 Euro (~950GBP) in Black/Blue/Purple in Europe at launch: https://t.co/DCIcokL5kC

The site also reveals the pricing for the two storage models: EUR1,250 for the 512GB and EUR1,050 for the 128GB.
The 512GB model will be offered in Black or Coral Blue (Europe), while the 128GB will come in Black, Coral Blue and Lilac Purple (Europe). Colour options may differ according to region/market.
It’s strange that there’s not mid-tier storage option – 256GB in the line-up but this could change at the time of the launch.
Design-wise, the Galaxy Note9 will look familiar to its predecessor. The notable change is on the rear; the fingerprint sensor has moved from the right side of the camera array, to below the cameras.
The S Pen exclusive to the Note series will gain a contrasting yellow colour and is rumoured to feature Bluetooth connectivity.
The Galaxy Note9 will retain the 6.3-inch Super AMOLED Infinity Display with an 18.5:9 screen aspect ratio. The device will retain the octa-core Exynos 9810 (or Snapdragon 845) chipset and will come with up to 8GB of RAM.
It’s expected to feature a larger 4,000mAh battery which puts it on par with some of the flagship devices out there in the market.
The glass body offers IP68 dust- and water-resistance and supports wireless charging.
The Galaxy Note9 will be unpacked on 9 August 2018.
