Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9 is all set to get launched earlier this year at some point in July or early August. Details about the phone have been slowly trickling in over the past few weeks, and there are now 2 Chinese tipsters on Twitter hinting at some big changes.

As per MMDDJ, the Galaxy Note 9 is going to measure 6.4-inch diagonally. This is a bit bigger than the Galaxy Note 8’s 6.3-inch size, but not a drastic increase. The difference will help the smartphone set itself apart from the Galaxy S9+ though, as the latter measures 6.2-inch across.

This rumor is in contrast to a previous one which alleged that the Samsung device would measure 6.38-inch, an even smaller increase. It’s possible the new leak just rounded off the figure. In any case, the handset will probably be slightly larger this year.

Frequent Samsung tipster Ice Universe also took to Twitter to report that the Galaxy Note 9 might have a 4000mAh or 3850mAh battery. Whichever capacity turns out to be accurate, it’ll be bigger than the Galaxy Note 8’s 3300mAh battery.

Samsung will likely pair this supersized battery with a Snapdragon 845 processor, offering a lot more mileage and power along the way as compared to the Galaxy Note 8. What’s still unclear is if the brand’s next flagship will have a fingerprint scanner underneath the screen or not.

Last we heard, Samsung hadn’t quite perfected the technology and decided to delay it once more. Perhaps the Galaxy S10 or Note 10 will finally gain support for the feature.
