Samsung Totally Didn’t Leak This Note 9 Launch Video

What leaks more than a broken pipe? Samsung phones, apparently.

Yes, the upcoming Galaxy Note 9 has leaked. Again. We already know pretty much everything about the device, even though there really isn’t a lot of new improvements on Samsung’s next flagship. The company has now “mistakenly” leaked the Galaxy Note 9 launch video, revealing the device in all its glory.

Just a day prior to this video leak, the company put up a pre-order page for the Note 9. “Accidentally”, of course. These are just two of the most recent Note 9 leaks, and it feels like there’s been a new leak almost every other day. Samsung seems to be using leaks as a tactic to create hype around the device, which only seems like an iterative upgrade at best.

So far, we know that the device will come with a 4,000 mAh battery for all-day battery life, a dual-camera setup on the back, a headphone jack (thank god), a new S Pen, and a new 512GB model as hinted on the launch video above. Samsung has likely included some updates to the cameras on the back on the Note 9, but we don’t know much about that yet.

Samsung is going to make things official on August 9, finally putting an end to all these leaks. But you can be sure to see many more leaks before the launch event comes about.

    There is no denying that the Note series may be the most productive and feature rich Smartphone. I've never really been disappointed with one and I was crushed after the Note 7 debacle. It has a lot of features that are very useful but often not known of. The S-Pen is more than just a stylus and can do a lot of cool and productive things. The displays are industry best and I actually used the curved screen options. And I can boldly, say, I never once encountered "lag" on these phones.

    But because of the Note 7's failure, it gave me my first taste of the pure Android world with the Pixel. I've been unable to go back to the Note, not only because of Pure Android and Updates but the Camera has always been the best. Plus, I grew tired of Samsung "Bloat" (Bixby, Galaxy App Store, Duplicate apps you can't remove, etc.) and slow update schedule.

    I'm tempted, especially since I'm not crazy about the rumored notch on the Pixel 3 XL but I'll watch both phones closely.
