Tech Radar reports that the all-new flagship phablet will come with a huge 6.4 inch display that makes use of the latest Super AMOLED technology to produce vivid colours and an impressive pixel density.
Camera capabilities are improved, thanks to the presence of a dual lens primary unit, providing a 12 megapixel resolution and a multitude of apertures to help cope with different levels of lighting.
Up front, an eight megapixel camera will handle selfies, while 128GB of storage will provide plenty of room for all the images that users capture.
Other features mentioned in the leak include capacitive charging capabilities, a waterproof body and a pair of front-facing speakers in order to provide the Note 9 user with stereo sound.
A bigger battery is also on the cards, although Samsung is still attempting to restore its reputation after the Galaxy Note 7 suffered issues in this area two years ago. The Note 9 will be yet another landmark launch for the market leading South Korean manufacturer.
