The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is the successor to the Note 8 and early impressions from the initial worldwide unveiling by Samsung last week showed the device to be an iterative update to the Galaxy Note lineup rather than revolutionary.

Display, Processor & Operating System: The phone comes with a bigger display of 6.4-inches with an aspect ratio of 18.5:9 and 1440×2960 pixels resolution. The leakster somehow always manages to get his hands on valuable information about upcoming smartphones and he just leaked that Galaxy S10 is being codenamed as "Beyond" and that it will be available in the following color variants: black, white, green, silver and pink. The device follows the usual routine and will run Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box. "Samsung rounded up the edges of the new flexible 6.4" AMOLED display to the "bare minimum" that would still keep its Edge design aesthetics, which should make applying Note 9 screen protectors easier compared to the Note 8. The phone comes in two variants - one packing 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage and another with 8GB RAM and 512GB internal storage. On the hardware front, the Note 9 is powered by Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 845 chipset - this is for the global mode.

The smartphone comes with up to 512GB of internal storage which you can get in the most premium variant.

South Africans can get their new Note 9 for R18,999 in cash, and on contract from cellular providers. It features 4000 mAh battery with support to fast charging on both wired and wireless (WPC and PMA) charging.
