The rumour mill is churning around the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, and this time it’s whispering that it may be more powerful than originally thought.
Tipster, Ice Universe, has teased on Twitter that we could be looking at 8GB of RAM and 512GB of storage.
If you are lucky, you will see 8GB RAM and 512GB ROM Galaxy Note9

If this is true, it’s a huge jump on the 4GB of RAM in the S9 and 6GB in the S9+. Not to mention the storage options which sit at 64GB, 128GB and 256GB.
Possible footage and and image of a Note 9 screen protector have also emerged.

These latest leaks come mere weeks after Ice Universe claimed that there would be no outward design changes to the Note 9.
Note9 is 2mm shorter than Note8, and nothing more.
You can't distinguish between them without careful observation.

Other leaks to date have included the possibility of a 3,850mAh or 4,000mAh battery, as well as supposed benchmarking results from Geekbench.
Of course, none of these leaks have been confirmed by Samsung. So far they are just rumours, some of which are coming from a Twitter account with a relatively small follower base.
And if the Geekbench results are to be believed, they are in conflict with the 8GB RAM that has been teased.
That being said, Ice Universe has been uncannily accurate with leaks in the past. According to Forbes, they were the first to reveal the Note 8 design and photos of the Galaxy S8, and they were correct about every S9 spec.
So while it’s always a good idea to remain sceptical, we’ll definitely be keeping our eyes on these sources.
