Samsung has kicked off Galaxy Note 9 pre-orders yesterday, and the Galaxy Note 9 pre-order video has just been published by Samsung New Zealand on YouTube. Based on the title of that video “SAM0058 YT 1”, and the fact that it was published ahead of time, we’re presuming that it has been published by accident, so if you’re interested in checking it out, it may be wise to do it sooner rather than later, as it may be gone soon. This 30-second promo video is embedded down below, for your convenience.
If you check out the provided video, you will not only get a great look at the phone itself, but also its S Pen stylus. This video basically confirms recent leaks, as the device looks identical to the one we’ve exclusively shared, and those designs that several other sources shared. In the video, the company also teases great battery life, and it confirms that the Galaxy Note 9 will 1TB of storage, while confirming microSD card expansion, which more or less confirms the 512GB Galaxy Note 9 model (512GB of internal storage + 512GB added via a microSD card). The device will be made out of metal and glass, just like its predecessor, while it will sport a 3.5mm headphone jack on the bottom. A Type-C USB port will also be located on the bottom of the phone, as will the device’s loudspeaker. The S Pen stylus will be tucked away in the same place as on the Galaxy Note 8, The power / lock buttons will be located on the right-hand side of the device, while the volume up, volume down, and Bixby buttons will be located on the left.
The back side of the Galaxy Note 9 will be curved, and the phone’s display will also be curved, while the phone will sport minimal bezels, as expected. A horizontally-aligned dual camera setup will be included on the back, while a fingerprint scanner will sit below those two cameras. A heart rate sensor will be included on the back as well, and the same can be said for a dual-LED flash. The Galaxy Note 9 will arrive in both Exynos 9810 and Snapdragon 845 SoC variants, while it will include 6GB of RAM, almost certainly. The device will sport a large QHD+ Super AMOLED Infinity display, while Android 8.1 Oreo will come pre-installed on it, with Samsung’s custom UI.
UPDATE: the video has been removed by Samsung New Zealand, but a third-party source uploaded it to YouTube, so the URL has been changed.
