Tipsters have been sharing their latest insights into the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 9 as its release inches closer and all the signs are that this device is going to be big, big, big! 

For one thing, respected tipster Ice Universe predicts that the Galaxy Note 9 will offer 8GB of RAM and as much as 512GB of storage space. If that tip is true, the Galaxy Note 9 will be Samsung's first smartphone to release with 8GB of RAM, outshining the 6GB Galaxy Note 8.  

And what's more, Ice Universe tweeted that he was "100 per cent sure" that the next iteration of the popular series will feature a ramped up battery too, clocking in at 4,000mAh.  That would certainly be a leap up from the Note 8 that left critics disappointed with its 3,300mAh battery. 

That would add credibility to the rumors over at GalaxyClub, which reported that Samsung is going to release the Galaxy Note 9 with a faster wireless charger.

And the dimensions of the device are expected to be much bigger too as The Bell (via Forbes) reports that the Note 9 is being scaled up to 6.4 inches, making it bigger than the 6.3-inch Galaxy Note 8.

And while previous Samsung smartphones have disappointed with their camera specs, particularly in low light conditions, the Galaxy Note 9 appears to be a pleasant departure from that with a much bigger and better offering being reported by Bloomberg

Leaked images courtesy of 91Mobiles and OnLeaks suggest that little is going to change by way of the design and that unlike previous rumors suggested, the device will not be coming with an in-display fingerprint sensor.

Bloomberg reports that the device is set to release on August 9 but there's no word from Samsung yet on the price. If that release date is true, it's not long now until we find out for certain what Samsung will be packing into the Galaxy Note 9.
