Over the years we’ve seen an increase in the amount of RAM and storage offered in smartphones. This isn’t surprising because as apps become more complex and demanding, they might require more RAM. Also our media files are getting bigger, what with our cameras being able to capture footage in 4K resolution.
This is why it isn’t necessarily a complete out of the question notion to think that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 9 might feature more storage and RAM compared to its predecessors. According to a tweet by Ice Universe, he has suggested that the upcoming handset might actually pack 8GB of RAM and 512GB storage as one of its options.
If you are lucky, you will see 8GB RAM and 512GB ROM Galaxy Note9

We’ve already seen how companies such as Apple have increased the storage offered in its iPhones, where at one point in time 64GB was as high as it got. This is why for Samsung to potentially offer as much as 512GB of storage doesn’t really shock us. However given that flash memory is still somewhat pricey, we expect that a 512GB Galaxy Note 9 variant could be rather expensive.
We have been hearing a bit about the Note 9 in recent times, with a recently spotted benchmark listing showing that the phone could be packing an Exynos 9810 as one of its variants. There are also claims that say that the handset could be announced earlier than expected, possibly in July, but it’s probably best to take it with a grain of salt for now.
