Considering that Galaxy S9 sales have been pretty disappointing for Samsung, the company really wants a “win” for its next flagship. And apparently one of the steps it’s taking is to include a bigger battery for the Galaxy Note 9. Because Note users are serious people who can’t be bothered to charge their phones all the time.

As we get closer and closer to the official announcement date for the Galaxy Note 9, more and more information is making its way around the web. We’re hearing, for example, that the phone will get a Bluetooth S Pen to unlock new functionality like acting as a remote shutter for the camera app.

And now it looks like a bigger battery for the Galaxy Note 9 is teased as part of the plans too.

In the video embedded below, we see a competing phone draining away from 5 percent down to nothing at the least convenient of times. We’re not-so-subtly reminded that having a battery that can “keep up” is pretty useful in a smartphone. Then, the August 9th date flashes on the screen, corresponding to when we’re expecting the Note 9 to be revealed at Samsung Unpacked.

You may recall that following the explosive fiasco with the Note 7. Samsung subsequently downgraded from a 3,500 mAh battery to a 3,300 mAh battery for the Note 8. Now it seems they’re going back in the other direction and the rumor points toward a 4,000 mAh battery.

That’s the same size as the Blackberry Motion, a phone that can go up to two days of regular use between charges. The powerhouse of the Galaxy Note 9 will probably go through those mAhs more quickly, of course, seeing how it’ll likely get a 6.4-inch UHD display, Snapdragon 845, and dual 12MP cameras.
