New Galaxy Note 9 rumors point to 6.4-inch display, 4,000 mAh battery


Last updated: April 11th, 2018 at 10:19 UTC+02:00

Galaxy Note 9 rumors are likely to pick up steam in the coming weeks, as we move further from the Galaxy S9’s worldwide release and closer to the launch of Samsung’s next flagship. Two such rumors have surfaced online today, and they suggest the Galaxy Note 9 will come with a 6.4-inch display and possibly a 4,000 mAh battery. Sound too good to be true? Well, if Samsung has decided to implement an in-display fingerprint sensor on the Note 9, it would technically have the space it requires to fit in a large battery and also be able to increase the display size ever so slightly.

In-display fingerprint sensor to make upgrades in other areas possible?

It’s not the first time we’re hearing about the Note 9 having a larger display. A recent report had said that Samsung was marching ahead with production on the Note 9’s 6.38-inch display, and the report did come from a trustworthy source. The increased screen estate could be a result of Samsung further slimming down the bezels around the Infinity display, or perhaps made possible by the increased space Samsung would require for the in-display fingerprint sensor. It’s too early to tell, and all we can do is speculate. In fact, Ice universe, the popular leakster who has been right about a great deal of things in the past, says the battery could have either 3,850 or 4,000 mAh capacity, suggesting Samsung may not have reached a final decision about many aspects of its upcoming flagships.

And that’s normal, too, since the company tends to test a few prototypes and then release the one that works best. If history is any guide, rumors that point toward significant upgrades – especially in battery capacity – often turn out to be a bit more smoke than fire, so it would be best to keep a lid on our anticipation until something concrete shows up, which could take a while.
