Samsung Galaxy Note 9
Following the string of leaks and rumors, Samsung has officially launched Galaxy Note 9. Just like the past iterations, Note 9 could be seen as a refinement of the Galaxy flagship lineup and a means to showcase the company’s refinements.
The company has pitched it as a device for Samsung fans who wish to get the most out of their work and play; it has been justified with a massive 4,000mAh battery. It’s the largest battery to ever ship on a flagship Galaxy device.
Note 9 features a big 6.4-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED screen with 2960×1440 pixel resolution and 516 ppi. Looking at Samsung’s track record, it could be easily called the best display you could get on a smartphone.
The storage options are again targeted at the power users. The device is available in two options: 128GB or 512GB. If that’s not good enough to serve your needs, you can expand the storage with up to 1TB with a 512GB SD card.
Talking about the pricing, the 128GB/6GB model will cost for $999; the high-end 512GB/8GB version will ship at $1,250. The choice of available colors is blue and pink/purple.
The camera of Note 9 is the same we’ve seen in Galaxy S9. So, don’t expect to see any new hardware-based gimmicks. However, there are new features like Scene Optimizer and Flaw Detection.
Another new feature of Note 9 is the new and improved S Pen which is now equipped with Bluetooth Low-Energy (BLE) support; it provides about an all-day usage.
The preorders of Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will start on Aug 10th and the device will become available on Aug 24th.
