Galaxy Note 9 Rumours and Updates
There are already plenty of rumours burning up on the web for upcoming Galaxy S9 and Note 9 flagships eg. What RAM, ROM, display, Camera features, Fingerprint, Positioning of keys, battery life etc. Here we will talk over all these and will try to bring a calculated guess for you guys. So, let’s get started with top 5 rumours of Galaxy Note 9.
Samsung Note 9 will have 4k display resolution instead of 2k that we are seeing from past two years. Yes, Samsung will use a POLED display for upcoming Galaxy Note 9 which is highly rich in colours, contrast and probably one of its kind. The phone will have similar display panel as we have seen with Note 8 Infinity Display last year, but this time with 4k resolution. It will offer 18:5:9 aspect ration with wide viewing angles.
Galaxy Note 9 Display & Design Rumours:
In past few years, Samsung has done the remarkable job when it comes to display and design. They have moved from conventional LCD to AMOLED with their Galaxy S7 flagship and further improved it to WQHD+ Infinity display with Galaxy S8. The S8 and Note 8 features 2960 X 1440 pixels of resolution with 18:5:9 aspect ration. The new display is really amazing in colours, rich in contrast and that offers Samsung with an ability to have 80% display on the front panel. It’s 2k18 and there’s huge possibility that Samsung might bring 4k Resolution to Samsung Note 8 smartphone.
What to expect from Galaxy Note 9 Design?
The design will remain pretty same as Note 8, we might bigger Note smartphone this year.
** More display to body Ration: The S8 has 80% display on the front screen which is 18% larger than S7. This year as well Samsung may improve it to 90% with Note 9, that means we may see a minimal bezel phone.
** We may not have 3.5mm Jack: Samsung has already removed the physical home button last year and we might the Galaxy Note 9 phablet will not sport 3.5 mm audio jack from now. However, the Galaxy S9 will still have it. Note 9 is the first ever Samsung phone who is gonna miss it. But surely Samsung will be having something out of the box for music lovers. We will let you know about that sooner.
No New Design with upcoming Note 9 flagship:
Samsung’s upcoming smartphone Galaxy Note 9 will be quite similar to what we have seen last year with Note8. Although there is the huge number of leaks and designs coming every day. But the thing is Samsung is gonna cut huge cost on manufacturing with sticking with Note8 design with few tweaks. This might be not the happiest news Samsung fans wanna hear but yes those who still sticking with Note9 are going to be really amazed by seeing what Samsung have inside the box. It’s going to be a 6.3-inch device with really amazing AMOLED display, powerful processor and new camera specs on board.
