Galaxy Note 9 might shoot 960FPS for 2x as long as Galaxy S9

960FPS video for 0.4 seconds might not sound like much, but that's double the 0.2 seconds on the Galaxy S9

I'm a proud owner of Samsung's larger-than-life Galaxy Note 9 smartphone while my wife recently upgraded herself to the Galaxy S9 and I have to say I'm mad jelly at the camera improvements of the latest Galaxy S9... that is, until I read the rumors on the new Galaxy Note 9 camera.

According to SamsungMobile.News on Twitter, the new Galaxy Note 9 "can shoot 960fps for 0.4 seconds. 0.2 seconds more than the #GalaxyS9" which will be impressive. Samsung will reportedly use a dual 12+12-megapixel rear-facing camera rig on the Galaxy Note 9 while a 9-megapixel front-facing camera takes care of those all-important selfies.

Samsung's new Galaxy Note 9 will have one huge selling point according to the rumors: a larger 4000mAh battery that will pack Quick Charge 4.0 support for super-fast charging of the even larger battery. Inside, we should expect a revised and improved S-Pen that will this time, be Bluetooth-enabled.

The larger rumor for the Note 9 is that it will have a 30-day exclusive of Epic Games' smash hit Fortnite. Fortnite is not currently on Android, so Samsung scoring a 30-day exclusive for the Galaxy Note 9 would be marketing genius right now. It would associate the brand of Fortnite on Android with Samsung's biggest and best phone ever... which will be a great selling point for the South Korean giant.

Samsung will be launching its Galaxy Note 9 on August 9 with availability to come in the weeks after the launch across the world.
