Samsung Galaxy Note 9 cases already on sale

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 cases already on sale

Ahead of the official launch, Samsung has already dropped in major hints about the phone.

Additionally, we know that Samsung has worked out a deal that will make its new phones the exclusive home of Fortnite on Android for up to 120 days, plus Note 9 owners will get between $100 and $150 worth of V-Bucks to spend in the game.

Those specs will come with a price hike, though.

Droid Life reports that one of its readers spotted a prematurely leaked BOGO promotion for the Note 9 while perusing the My Verizon app, suggesting that Big Red will announce such a deal once Samsung officially unveils its new phone.

Approximately halfway through the 30-second ad, Samsung touts the Galaxy Note 9 as being "1TB Ready with expandable memory" and then shows a 512GB microSD card going into the smartphone, the Forbes reported on Sunday.

Expected to feature a 4000mAh battery, the phone will ship with Android Oreo with Samsung Experience 9.0 on top. From day 1 - in fact, from even before day 1 - at least one major U.S. wireless carrier is running a BOGO offer on the Galaxy Note 9. For selfies, the phone will offer an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera. This piece of information has been reaffirmed by an image of Galaxy Note 9 Value Pack retail box shared by Dutch site Techtastic.

As per a post by a tipster on Reddit, citing an unnamed Samsung trainer, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will come with AI-based features that will be able to optimise the camera based on the subject detected, such as landscape, portrait, food, and more. However, it will also give the option of fingerprint sensor and face unlock. The camera will feature Samsung's variable aperture system, which will allow users to switch between f/1.5 and f/2.4.

For the battery, Samsung is pushing the Note 9's battery to 4,000mAh from the Note 8's 3,300mAh - a significant upgrade, for sure.

The leaks suggest that the S Pen stylus in Galaxy Note 9 will let users double tap a button to flip camera mode via by doubling as a remote shutter.
