Just a week before Samsung hit another milestone with their Galaxy Note Series, storage details of the highly anticipated Galaxy Note 9 has been leaked to the public. Thanks to Samsung New Zealand which accidentally published a pre-order advert.
Earlier this week, the prototype of the device emerged on a hands-on video revealing one of its key features – the camera. As per the video, the Galaxy Note 9 appears to have a horizontal dual-camera system, equipped with a variable aperture. The video didn’t mention the exact camera configuration of the Note 9, but let’s assume it will the same as the S9 Plus model.

It is also reported that the device might include a battery rated at 4,000mAh, about 20 percent up from the previous Note model. XDA Developers also revealed that the Android version of Fortnite will out exclusively for the Note 9 complete with S Pen functionality. Customers pre-ordering the device is said to be rewarded with some bonus content including complimentary V-Bucks, player skins, and more.
Now, as for the final “secret” feature, Samsung’s New Zealand account had accidentally published an official pre-order advert for the upcoming smartphone. The video was since then pulled out, but SamMobile is quick to download and host it on their website.
According to the video, the phone will come in a 512GB version, expandable up to 512GB via microSD card slot. In total, a maxed out Galaxy Note 9 will be the first smartphone to support up to 1TB of storage. However, this won’t be the only version of the phone as there might also be other models with less storage. So prospective customers will have to pay a premium to own the model with 1TB of storage support.
Samsung will be announcing the Galaxy Note 9 in a big event in New York City this coming August 9. Hopefully, there will be more surprises.
