Samsung Galaxy Note 9 – Rumours

While users are going gaga with Samsung’s newest launches Galaxy S8 and S8+, the attention has now shifted to the Note 8. But, thanks to the latest rumours circulating everywhere, folks are now eagerly looking forward to 2018 for the release of Samsung Galaxy Note 9.

As per a new patent filed by Samsung, the upcoming Galaxy Note device may be much thinner than you had ever imagined. What’s more interesting is that the Note 9 may feature the Exynos 9810. Users had expected that the device would be built on a 10mm process, given the fact that the previous smartphones Galaxy Note and Galaxy S was equipped with similar chipsets. However, if recent reports are to be believed, the Note 9 may come with a different system-on-chip (SoC).

Samsung galaxy note 9

If the newest rumours are correct, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 can come armed with a better and superior SoC than that of Galaxy S9 or S9+. The device may come with either a 7mm or an 8mm processor- which hints at a fictitious Exynos 9810. This Exynos 9810 was previously linked to the S9 and S9+ which was set to be shipped with CDMA support. As compared to the contemporary Galaxy S and other Note devices, this may be the biggest performance difference ever.

This alleged processor will be built by using 10 nm FinFET technology, thus hinting at a more powerful and ambitious processor which should be able to render more power than that of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy Note 9. Now, if these reports really prove to be true, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 can be one of the sturdiest and better handsets. The change in build process will be resulting in comparatively reduced power consumption, boosting the frequency.

Now that everything is said, it is expected that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will be a huge hit among its users.
