Samsung will unveil its upcoming flagship - Galaxy Note 9 - at its Unpacked press conference to be held at Barclays Center on August 9. While ahead of the Galaxy Note 9 launch, there have been several leaks and speculations, Samsung itself has now started teasing the smartphone hinting at some of the specifications. As per previous reports, the battery life of the Galaxy Note 9 is expected to be a key highlight during the launch. Samsung's latest new teaser for its upcoming handset could be a confirmation that the Galaxy Note 9 will pack a big battery.
The South Korean technology giant has released a 30-second video on YouTube teasing a smartphone widely speculated to be the Galaxy Note 9. In the video, one can see that a person is trying to meet up with another person using a handset that is on its last battery legs. The smartphone's battery then drains from 50 percent to 4 percent and eventually to zero. The person is seen to be trying every method possible, such as lowering the brightness level and switching-off Wi-Fi, to prolong the battery life but to no avail.
Following this, Samsung flashes the words "Battery can't keep up? A lot can change in a day" on the screen. The video then ends with the date of the Samsung Unpacked event, August 9, which is when the Galaxy Note 9 launch will take place.
As per previous rumours, the Galaxy Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is expected to pack a 4000mAh battery, which is a 20 percent boost over the Galaxy Note 8's 3300mAh battery. This smartphone will also presumably support fast charging - possibly Quick Charge 4.0 support. A new wireless charger box has also been leaked earlier, indicating that Samsung will also introduce a new wireless charging pad at the event. Called the Wireless Charger Duo, this new Samsung device is expected to charge two Qi-compatible smartphones, and one Galaxy Watch - another product that is expected to launch on August 9.
Interestingly, the last time Samsung tried to upgrade the batter on a Galaxy Note handset, it did not work out so well. However, given the fate of the Galaxy Note 7 was a big price to pay for the comapny, it is expected that all will be well this time around. Meanwhile, we can expect more such teasers coming from Samsung in the run-up to the Galaxy Note 9 launch.
