Samsung Posts Galaxy Note 9 Intro a Bit Early, Quickly Pulls It


Next week Samsung will officially take the wraps off the new Galaxy Note9 smartphone with delivery to customers starting on August 24th.

This is the first time we've heard about the 512GB version of the phone and it clearly states you'll be able to put a top size microSD card into it to up the storage to 1TB.

Samsung is said to have uploaded a promotional Galaxy Note 9 video onto its New Zealand YouTube media channel, depicting the new design as well as a couple of its newer distinguishing features. While the phone is not yet available for pre-order, Samsung did yesterday launch a page which allows you to reserve your place in line for pre-ordering the Note 9.

Samsung is all set to launch its next Note series smartphone - Galaxy Note 9 on August 9.

We also don't know exactly why the video was posted.

But the official launch is coming next week at Samsung's August 9 Unpacked event, so get your "which rumors were right" Bingo cards ready.

The video gives us a look at the "all new powerful" S Pen, but there's no mention of the Bluetooth functionality we heard about in previous rumors. Overall it seems Samsung has kept the changes very minor as the only really distinguishing difference to the Note 8 is the relocation of the fingerprint module from the right side of the horizontal camera setup to a centre placement underneath the cameras.

As for enhanced battery life, rumour has it that the Note 9 will pack a large 4,000mAh battery with support for both fast and wireless charging. A report has now leaked the pricing details of the Galaxy Note 9 as well.
