Samsung has been playing safe in the smartphone market lately. The company has been pretty quiet ever since they launched the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus earlier this year. Both phones turned out to be amazing. But there are a few people holding off their S9 and S9 Plus purchase simply due to the fact the Samsung could be coming up with the Note 9 sooner than ever this time around. Rumors and leaks have started to scatter the internet murmuring what the next big thing from Samsung could be.
During our review of the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus last month, we found the camera on the S9 Plus really appealing. Its unfortunate that smartphone companies are now using DXOMark as a marketing term to sell their phones. Despite what the scores say, the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus performed really well and is there on the top of the competition. Not only did Samsung revamp its camera game, but it also introduced their new dual aperture system that quickly changes its aperture based on the amount of light that’s available. With the Note 9, rumors suggest that Samsung could be pushing even further.
Over the past few weeks, we’ve reported what we found of the Note 9. So far, leaks and rumors have claimed that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is set be revealed by the 9th of August as well as a host of leaks suggesting that Samsung could be giving their battery capacity a boost. The pressure from its Chinese competition has severely pushed the Korean giant down its rankings on DXOMark which could give Samsung some form of motivation to shake things up a bit when it comes to the camera.
Latest reports suggest that Samsung would be launching a 512GB variant of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 that would be exclusive to the Korean market. If true, this means that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 could come in a 256GB variant at launch. Samsung did release 128GB and 256GB variants of the S9 and the S9 Plus, but they came a few months after the S9 and S9 Plus had hit the market.
Sure, having more storage on a phone should be great. But 512GB is definitely overkill for anyone unless you have some pirating going on there.
