If the information turns out to be true, the Galaxy Note 9 will be Samsung's first smartphone to come with a hefty 512GB storage. According to head of research at Golden Bridge Investment, Kim Jang-yeol, the Samsung Galaxy X foldable phone will be worth about 2 million won which is around £1,365.

Samsung president of mobile, Koh Dong-jin, has confirmed that a bendable phone is coming, but we've heard no official word on release date or price.

In addition to the buzz around the limited availability of the 512GB variant, a Twitter user who has been reporting unannounced developments around the Galaxy Note 9 using username OSCH has managed to spot the new Galaxy Note model in 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB storage options on an online store in South Korea. Furthermore, the handset is expected with certain camera improvements compared to its predecessor the Galaxy Note 8.

That said, the inner screen may still be made up of two parts with a separate outer screen. It is unclear if that means there will be a discenable line between the two when folded out.

Samsung has recently filed a patent for a type of technology it calls an "artificial muscle" which allows components to fold and sync without damage.
