Samsung's Newest Note 9 Teaser is All About the Battery

By Tom Pritchard on at

Samsung's Galaxy Note 9 is due to be unveiled in two weeks time, at a Galaxy Unpacked event on 9th August. Even though it feels like we've heard everything there is to know about the phone already, Samsung's still kicking off the hype campaign to try and get people excited for the big day. Today it's released a new teaser to that effect, and it's all about the battery. Oh and it takes some subtle shots at Apple, as is the Samsung way.

Ha ha, take that with your rubbish battery life Apple! Except Samsung phones don't have a particularly great battery life either. Nowhere near as they could be anyway, so here's hoping the Galaxy Note 9 does something to fix that annoying issue. And in a slightly better way than the Note 7, which got a bit explosive pretty early on.

Rumour is that this might actually happen, with leaks suggesting Samsung could squeeze a 4,000 mAh battery into the Note 9. That's noticeably larger than the 3,300 mAh battery in the Note 8 and the 3,500 mAh battery in the S9+. Supposedly that'll power the phone through an entire day of watching video at full brightness. I'll believe it when I see it, though, that's a pretty difficult metric to reach for anyone - let alone a phone with such a big screen.

But we're in the final countdown to the Note 9's launch day, so expect a flurry of new teasers hitting the web as Samsung tries to get people excited. Also expect some last minute rumours, particularly where price and availability are involved, as the leakers try to get the last of their information out while it's still relevant. [Engadget]
