Samsung’s upcoming flagship, the Galaxy Note 9, is less than two weeks away from being officially announced. But before the Galaxy Unpacked event could give us our first look at the Galaxy Note 9 and the upgrades it brings, Redditor Autopsy15 claims to have got their hands on a Galaxy Note 9 and has posted their first impressions of the phone.

The Galaxy Note will pack a dual rear cameras with dual OIS onboard, much like the cameras on the Galaxy S9+. 

Autopsy15 said they used the 6GB RAM, however, there might also be a higher-end version with 8GB of RAM.

The base model of the Galaxy Note 9 will have 128GB of internal storage, with 2 more models in tow, which suggests that the device will also come in two additional versions with 256GB and 512GB of internal storage.

Moreover, the Galaxy Note 9 will pack a 4,000 mAh battery which is claimed to have 4-5 days of standby time, and is a significant improvement over the 3,300 mAh unit inside the Galaxy Note 8. Samsung also released a teaser ad recently which highlighted the fact that the Galaxy Note 9 will provide a superior battery performance.

Also, the Galaxy Note 9’s S Pen will come with Bluetooth functionality, just as the recent rumors and certification had indicated. “The S Pen is now Bluetooth controlled. The pen button can be used to control actions like taking a photo, skipping forward or back in music, moving forward in a PowerPoint presentation”, wrote Autopsy15.

The DeX functionality will come built-in with the Galaxy Note 9, allowing users to control up to 5 devices at once, and on being connected with another DeX device, users will be able to control up to 20 devices.
