The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 release is only a month away and that means potential buyers have some tough choices to make. Buy something like the S9+ or Galaxy Note 8 now, or wait for Samsung’s new phone.
With that in mind, this guide will go over everything we know so far about the Galaxy Note 9. Then, we’ll compare it to the Galaxy Note 8 to help you make the right choice.
And while most of the leaks and rumors suggest Samsung’s Note 9 won’t look too different, there are changes worth waiting for. Whether that’s the longer battery life, a bigger screen, or the new and improved S-Pen.
The Galaxy Note 8 is still a great phone. It’s not even a year old, runs the latest Android 8.0 Oreo, and takes amazing photos with the dual rear cameras. Basically, if you need a phone right now you’ll love the Note 8. However, if you can wait a few more weeks to see what Samsung has in store with the Note 9, you’ll be glad you did.
Both of these phones will have huge screens, two cameras, and the S-Pen stylus. Not to mention more features than one would ever need. If a big screen is all you’re after, either phone is a great choice. With a big 6.3-inch curved AMOLED display everything looks good. That said, the big screen isn’t all these phones have to offer.
And considering they’ll look nearly identical, some buyers won’t even be able to tell the difference. A lot is changing though, and these are changes you’ll want to know about. The biggest one is the rumored 4,000 mAh battery in the Note 9. That’s the biggest battery in any high-end Samsung smartphone.
For those trying to decide between the Galaxy Note 9 and something else, we’re here to help. The slideshow below will compare all aspects of the Note 9 and Note 8 to help you choose what’s best for you.
