The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will supposedly raise the bar on Samsung’s flagship hardware. According to a rumour started on Twitter, the next Note is said to feature up to 8GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. Additionally, a new leaked benchmark shows a new Exynos processor that is superior to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845.
There’s no telling where Twitter user Ice Universe got his information, but it does raise some rather intriguing ideas. Until now, Samsung has not felt the need to expand storage past 256GB; aside from one or two special edition phones.
If you are lucky, you will see 8GB RAM and 512GB ROM Galaxy Note9

Also seen online is yet another benchmark on Geekbench after the first was spotted a month or so ago. What makes this benchmark different is the model number (SM-960N vs SM-960U) and also the amount of RAM tested (6GB vs 4GB).
The second benchmark is said to be of the Exynos variant, which should be the Exynos 9810 (same as the one in the Malaysian Samsung Galaxy S9). Which would be a reasonable assumption. Seeing that Samsung often makes its Galaxy flagships with different processors (a Qualcomm version of the US market, and the Exynos variant for the rest of the world).
Korean Herald is saying that the Galaxy Note 9 is set to be launched sometime in late July, which is a month early when compared to the Note 8 which was launched in August. We will see what other improvements Samsung has brought to the table with the upcoming Galaxy Note when it launches then.
