Samsung can't seem to do a good job of keeping its latest flagship under wraps. The Galaxy Note 9 has leaked yet again.
The device would supposedly be launched on Aug. 9 at the company's Unpacked event. The newest leak confirms the rumored storage boost.
The Galaxy Note 9 will come in a whopping 512 GB variant, as previous rumors claim. The confirmation comes in the form of an allegedly leaked introduction video for the handset.
As with all rumors and leaks, this one must be taken with a grain of salt, but to be fair, the video looks professionally made, complete with high-resolution renders and Samsung's signature typeface.
Sammobile was the first to spot the leaked video, which has since been taken down from YouTube as of writing. The publication says it's likely Samsung uploaded the video by accident, as the video itself didn't even have an official title. Technically, it's everyone's first "official" look at the phone, and it highlights some of the newest upgrades the upcoming flagship has to offer.
Bluetooth S Pen Rumors And 512 GB Galaxy Note 9 Variant
First up is the S Pen, which rumors say will be more functional than its previous iterations. Apparently, it's getting a bunch of Bluetooth capabilities that will allow it to do useful tricks, such as controlling music playback and taking pictures remotely. These weren't mentioned in the video, though. If rumors are true, it would be the first time the S Pen gets radical upgrades. It's mainly used as a writing tool most of the time, but the aforementioned features could make it much more appealing to fans.
The video also confirms that the phone supports up to 512 GB microSD cards — that means the Galaxy Note 9 can have as much as 1 TB of storage. Earlier this year, Samsung officially added support for 400 GB microSD cards on its mobile devices. It's nice to know things are moving fast in the storage department.
Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Rumors
Other rumors claim that the Galaxy Note 9 will have as much as 8 GB of RAM, but that's purely speculation. Details are thin at the moment, although it's safe to expect dual cameras, an AMOLED Infinity Display, a fingerprint sensor, an iris scanner, a headphone jack, and a dedicated Bixby button. With the launch event set at Aug. 9, it won't be long before these details are revealed, so stay tuned!
