Let us know in the comments. Under the hood is the unspecified octa-core processor clocked at 2.2GHz.

As for the internal storage, both the variants ship with 128GB that can be expanded up to 512GB with a microSD card. Next, we have an 8MP 120-degree ultra-wide-angle lens that will provide more background in the shot that you are about to snap. Apparently, the four-camera Samsung will feature a main sensor of 24MP, with F1.7, capable of great low-light performance. Connectivity options on the handset include Dual 4G, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, Global Positioning System and a USB Type-C port.

It measures 162.5 x 77 x 7.8 mm and weighs 183 grams.

Bundled with some sweet freebies by everyone from Samsung to Best Buy and Amazon lately, the Galaxy Note 9 has been hovering over the $800 mark on eBay after a few early discounts.

All feature a 3D Glass curved back which makes them feel comfortable to hold in your hand.
