Samsung is scheduled to roll out the red carpet for its next big-screen flagship phone on August 9. In case you haven’t been paying attention to the news, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is coming soon. Although frankly, there is little, if any, information left to be revealed next week when the Note 8 successor makes its formal debut.
Today further lends credence that we already know too much about the Galaxy Note 9 before it has come out. Samsung’s official introduction video for the Note 9 has surfaced online. It showcases the upcoming device and the all-new S Pen stylus from every angle you can imagine. The since-deleted clip was posted by Samsung New Zealand.

With a runtime of 30 seconds, it doesn’t dive into the phone’s internals. However, it does serve some key highlights, including the device’s supposed “all-day” battery life. There’s also a microSD expansion slot that can house up to a 512GB card (for up to 1 terabyte of total memory), if you have serious cash to burn. Curiously, there’s no mention of Bluetooth connectivity for the S Pen, which has been rumored to be onboard.
As expected, the back of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 shows a dual-camera system and the company’s trademark heart-rate sensor for its most expensive offerings. You’ll also find a physical fingerprint sensor that has been rightfully moved closer to the center of the panel for easier unlocking on such a tall device. In terms of screen size, the Note 9 is expected to flaunt a 6.3-inch curved OLED display. That’s similar to the one on the Galaxy Note 8.
It’s likely that the smartphone will be powered by the Samsung Exynos 9810 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, depending on where you get it. Reports suggest that a high-specced version with 8GB RAM and 512GB of native storage will be available in certain countries.
The phone has been tipped to go on sale on August 24 — or two weeks after its launch. We wonder if that will be the case in the Philippines, too.
In related news, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has been reportedly listed on Lazada’s Malaysian website for RM4,299 (around P55,922 or $1,054) and RM5,099 (P66,328 or $1,251) for 128GB and 512GB memory, respectively. Not far from the leaked prices in Indonesia and South Korea.
