The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is officially being announced today, and Samsung is doubling on everything from its predecessor Note series in terms of productivity and performance. It has the best specs you’ll find in any flagship Android phone, the screen is bigger, its S Pen has more tricks than ever before, and the battery is huge, now with 4000 mAh.
And guess what??
Samsung’s DeX software is now built right into the phone — no dock required — so you can plug it into an external display for a desktop-like experience.
- The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will be sold in two configurations: there’s a 128GB / 6GB RAM model for $999(₹68945.99) and a top-tier 512GB / 8GB RAM version for $1,250(₹86203). Preorders begin on August 10th, and the phone will be available on August 24th at all major carriers or direct (and unlocked) from Samsung.
What’s new in Samsung Galaxy Note 9??
By looks alone, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is nearly identical to its predecessor, except that the fingerprint sensor has now been moved to a more sensible spot below the camera. All of Samsung’s other hardware signatures like water resistance, fast wireless charging, expandable microSD storage, and the headphone jack are still here.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 ships with Android 8.1 Oreo and the same user experience as Samsung’s last several phones.
Camera & Display:
The camera system in the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is similar to what Samsung put in the Galaxy S9+. But unlike the vertically aligned cameras in the S9+, the new phone has them aligned horizontally. The main camera uses a 12-megapixel image sensor, along with a variable aperture (F1.5-2.4) lens.
The second camera uses a zoom aka telephoto lens paired with a 12-megapixel sensor. On the front, there is an 8-megapixel camera.
Unlike many high-end phones launched this year, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 doesn’t come with a screen that has a notch. Some people will like it, some may not. Although what is more likely is that most users will love the 6.4-inch SuperAMOLED display of the Note 9. It has a screen resolution of 2960 X 1440 pixels and from all accounts seems like a brilliant screen.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 9, just like the Galaxy S9 and the S9+ earlier, is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 or the Exynos 9810 processor. In India, users will get the Exynos variant.
Samsung Pay is still present, and having the ability to work as a credit card’s magnetic stripe at stores where NFC payments don’t always work is a nice backdrop though.
