- Samsung on Thursday released a teaser trailer for its Unpacked event on August 9.
- The video doesn’t specifically mention the anticipated Galaxy Note 9, but instead focuses on the poor battery life of existing smartphones.
- Multiple rumors have hinted that the Galaxy Note 9 will have a bigger battery than its predecessor, the Galaxy Note 8.
Samsung is likely to unveil the new Galaxy Note 9 in two weeks, but the company just gave us a first glimpse at what we can expect.
On Thursday, Samsung released a teaser trailer for a new device, exactly two weeks before the company’s Unpacked Event on August 9 in New York City.
The video doesn’t specifically mention the Galaxy Note 9, although it’s almost certainly what Samsung will unveil at Unpacked. Instead, the video focuses on the poor battery life of existing smartphones, capturing the panic most people feel when their smartphone battery dies in the middle of something important.
“Battery can’t keep up?” the ad says. “A lot can change in a day.”
Multiple reports up until now have hinted at a bigger battery for the Galaxy Note 9. Gadget leaker Ice Universe claims the Galaxy Note 9 will sport a large 3,850 mAh battery, while another rumor suggests the Galaxy Note 9 will sport an even larger 4,000 mAh battery. Last year’s Galaxy Note 8 features a 3,300 mAh battery.
Either way, that extra capacity may not give the Galaxy Note 9 multi-day battery life, but it could at least improve upon what last year’s model offered.
Multiple leaks and rumors have already given us an idea of what to expect from the Galaxy Note 9. Beyond better battery life, we’ve also heard that the new device will have an improved camera, an invisible fingerprint sensor underneath the display, and a new Samsung skin over Android.
