The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is shaping up as a real beast according to the latest leak, which claims it could boast 8 GB of RAM and 512 GB of native storage space.
Samsung's Galaxy Note line of devices has always packed top-of-the-line specs and advanced features, but this year's iteration could be better than ever. The top configuration could blow the competition out of the water, but it might also cost a fortune.
Samsung Galaxy Note 9 With 8 GB RAM?
The latest leak might sound a bit exaggerated at first glance, but it's actually not that farfetched. Last year, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 came in a top configuration with 6 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage space, while the Galaxy S9 Plus from this year packs 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of native storage.
In this context, the allegation that the Galaxy Note 9 could sport as much as 8 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage sounds plausible. Other smartphones are already dipping into the 8 GB of RAM pool and Samsung likes to stay ahead of the curve, so a beastly Galaxy Note 8 would make sense.
The information comes from Ice Universe and it's unconfirmed at this point, so it's advisable to take all leaks like this one with a hefty grain of salt.
