An unboxing video of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has surfaced on the Internet, potentially confirming some of the specifications of the upcoming Samsung flagship. The phablet is due to be released officially at the Samsung Unpacked event on August 9.
The minute-long video bearing the watermark of vk.com confirms the device will come with a 6.3-inch SuperAMOLED Infinity Display screen with a resolution of 1440×2960. The design aspects of the upcoming device seem similar to last year's Note 8. The edge-to-edge screen will have an aspect ratio of 19.2:9.
The device in the video seems to be packing a 12MP+12MP dual-camera set-up on the rear, both with Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS). The front selfie camera incorporates an 8MP sensor.
The version showcased in the unboxing video comes with 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. Considering past rumours and leaks, it may very well be the base variant of the device. The smartphone will also reportedly release with 8GB RAM and 128GB, 256GB and 512GB storage options. Higher variants may also come with a more high-end camera set-up.
The video also shows the presence of an IRIS scanner, a fingerprint scanner below the horizontally-aligned rear camera set-up and wireless charging support for its 4,000mAh battery.
The US version of the Note 9 is expected to come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Soc, while the global variants, including the Indian version, will, in all likelihood, pack an Exynos 9810 processor.
