If you already have your eye on the upcoming but still unofficial Samsung Galaxy Note 9, then a new piece of information may get you even more excited for the new phablet.
Ice Universe, which has a pretty solid track record for Samsung-related leaks, has taken to Twitter to say that they believe that the Galaxy Note 9 will boast a 4000mAh battery. Adding to that, they say they are “100% sure” that this will be a major bullet point feature for the flagship phablet of 2018.
There is no getting around the importance of a battery, and the expectation of seeing a huge option like that in the Galaxy Note 9 is exciting. However, it’s also a bold move on Samsung’s part considering the last two Galaxy Note smartphones. With the Galaxy Note 7, a design flaw in the 3500mAh battery led to units exploding and catching fire. After that, the Galaxy Note 8 was outfitted with a 3300mAh, with speculation that the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco led to the smaller battery decision.
Going with a 4000mAh — even bigger than what was in the Galaxy Note 7 — may cause some folks to be a bit hesitant to go with the newer device. That is, unless Samsung goes out of its way to assuage those potential fears when it announces the Galaxy Note 9 later this year.
That’s not all, though. According to a separate report, Samsung is working on a faster wireless charging option. The FCC has a Samsung-branded wireless charger in its midst with a model number of EP-N6100. That suggests Samsung is working on an upgraded version of its current wireless charger, which has a model number of EP-N5100.
Are you already preparing to make the Galaxy Note 9 your next daily driver? What do you think of the idea of a 4000mAh battery inside that package?
