Home / News / Galaxy Note 9 may tout these new features and a bigger battery

The Galaxy Note 9 rumors won’t end until the device is officially unveiled so we can expect to hear a lot more of them in the days to come. The latest out of China suggests that Samsung is developing a couple of new features which will be introduced with its flagship phablet. It’s also claimed that the handset is going to have a significantly bigger battery than its predecessor. Now that’s something Note fans will certainly be interested in.

Galaxy Note 9 features

China-based leaker Ice Universe, who has been right on some accounts in the past, claims that Samsung is developing a new S Pen for the Galaxy Note 9. That’s hardly surprising given that the S Pen has been a permanent fixture on Galaxy Note handsets for years.

What the rumor doesn’t mention is just how the S Pen is going to be improved. The Galaxy Note 8’s stylus brought new software features such as Live Message, PENUP and Translate. Perhaps the Galaxy Note 9’s stylus will get sensitivity improvements and new software features. There was also a rumor that the next S Pen could even have an integrated microphone so that the stylus could be used to communicate in a phone call.

Samsung is also said to make user interface tweaks which might make the Samsung Experience skin on the Galaxy Note 9 lighter and less resource intensive. This should make the device feel snappier overall. Bixby 2.0, the next major update for Samsung’s AI assistant, may be onboard as well. Actually, it will be, as Bixby 2.0 for Galaxy Note 9 was confirmed by Samsung’s CEO himself.

The leaker also claims that the Galaxy Note 9 is going to feature an in-display fingerprint sensor. This is a Galaxy Note 9 rumor that has been done to death. There’s no concrete information right now to suggest that the next flagship phablet will indeed feature this component. Many would rather bet on Samsung introducing it with the Galaxy S10 first.

The Galaxy Note 8 has a 3,300mAh battery. Since Samsung retained the 3,000mAh and 3,500mAh batteries from the Galaxy S8/S8+ for the Galaxy S9/S9+ respectively, one would expect the company to do the same for the Galaxy Note 9 as well. That may not be the case as it’s claimed that the Galaxy Note 9 will feature a larger 3,850mAh battery. Last but certainly not the least, Samsung may also offer a new color option with the Galaxy Note 9, it might be a subtle shade of brown.

It’s difficult to say right now how much of this is actually going to be true. We won’t really find out until the second half of this year but we can count on hearing a lot more rumors about the Galaxy Note 9 in the weeks to come.

Note 8 will get those software features by any chance ? Or Note 8 is done with software upgrades ? I got 8.0 .

Removable battery issue again… Anyway, here’s something to think about… Airlines had been so strict about what you bring to the plane. Ironically, everyone is bringing the most dangerous thing with them, that’s the Li Ion battery. It is so easy for a jihadist to burn the plane. Just poke a sharp fork into it and u get fire. If it would have been removable, all batts could have been deposited in fire proof case while in flight and returned after arrival. Same true to laptops, etc. This also solves the “planned obsolescence” matters and electronic waste matters.

I don’t care if the screen size will get bigger as long as Note 9 will have a bigger battery(4000 mAh or higher) if the motherboard size is the problem

I don’t believe any rumors. It will have a 3500mah battery, improved camera to S9 plus level, a fingerprint scanner in the same position as S9 plus, improved sPen, the new generation Bixby, some new colours, slightly smaller bezels as on S9 plus. That’s a sensible list, it’s what it will be, everything else is pure garbage.

You’re right. Samsung’s note innovation days are over. It died with Note 4. Now, any new innovation has to happen in the S series first before the note gets it. Just look at S (7~9) and Note (7~8). N9 is just gonna be S9+ with stylus.

Actually I completely disagree with you.. I run an engineering consultancy business and myself and my 7 engineering colleagues have used every Note. These devices are fantastic tools for professional engineers and designers. The sPen is a marvelous tool. We use the Note as a pocket computer, we can annotate schematics, re route pipework on site using AutoCad and our own in house developed engineering apps. Just about all the people we deal with, architects, site engineers, contractors, process designers, graphics developers, quantity surveyors all use Note devices. Each new Note has been better than the previous one in terms… Read more »

@Biransahin. Fine words. How about some examples to illustrate what you say?

My own experience tells me that the S Note app itself was significantly dumbed down from the original version in the first Note to the version in Note 4.

Since the Note 4, the writing/reading surface has become non-flat (did you ever see a curved edge on an ‘engineering’ drawing board?), the IR blaster has gone, the battery is non-replaceable and the device is made from glass. I’ll wait for you to tell me the ways the device has improved from a business/engineer’s utility perspective; I’ll give you the camera.

It’s much improved. The sPen is far more sensitive and accurate. The increased sensitivity levels is a big plus. The Note 4 was excellent but comparing the sPen on a Note 4 to the sPen on Note7/8 is like using a crayon instead of a precision instrument. The faster processor means we complete complex tasks faster, and sharing is much faster and more efficient. As far as battery is concerned we get full days work done with ease. Of course we use rugged cases in our work environment as we used with every previous Note so glass makes no difference… Read more »

Thanks for you reply Biransahin. You make some strong points, sadly undermined by your complete rudeness. Why do you feel you have to insult other commentators?

Honestly, if you are not in the CAD business, where you have a dedicated app for that, in my humble opinion the Note fails its engineering purpose big time. I do not know in which country you are living, but at most customers / sites I have been to (working as a SW dev), you do not see wifi/wireless castable beamers, but hdmi based ones; and additionally they are stuck to the ceiling … so having that hdmi output and ir blaster were a blessing; especially if you could not find the damned remote … So even if we are… Read more »

No, I was just describing MY use case and MY opinion about the situation, and it seems you took it personally … every person has its own use case for a thing or his own opinion about something (that you’ll learn at some point in your life, hopefully) and for me the Note lost his usefulness after the Note 4 … I was just trying to make my point, and not to offend you (at most Samsung maybe … 🙂 ). By the way most things you use have Software inside, even your beloved phone or car, and if you… Read more »

Dual camera and Iris scanner were introduced in the Note series first.

Holy smoke. People are discussing color and not the only thing that could make me upgrade my Note 4, battery replaceable Note 9.

Besides the replaceable battery and IR blaster, the Note 4 is a piece of utter garbage! The Note 8 is in a whole new transcendental league.

Who in the world requests a BROWN phone?! Where is the RED phone we’ve been asking for since the S6 metal on glass design. Even the Blue and Green would be a welcomed back better than BROWN

Why not if they get the right tone it will look good but only if they get that right still rather have a dark red

If they get the colour right it could be a beauty.

any bold colour would be welcome. even better: offer a replaceable back so you can choose from a range of materials and colours and features.
