Samsung Galaxy Note 9 - All You Need To Know

Recently Samsung announced the all-new Samsung Galaxy Note 9. This is an update to Note series flagships after Note 8. Note 8 received a huge hit due to its amazing camera and infinity large display. Samsung continued this while playing a safer side keeping the same design language, same software optimization, S9 camera sensor with all new Bluetooth S-Pen and larger 4,000 mAh battery.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 features a 6.4" (16.26 cm) display with a screen resolution of 1440 x 2960 pixels and runs on Android v8.1 (Oreo) operating system. The device is powered by Octa-core (2.7 GHz, Quad core, M3 Mongoose + 1.7 GHz, Quad core, Cortex A55) processor paired with 6 GB of RAM. As far as the battery is concerned it has 4000 mAh.Remotely taking photos with the new Bluetooth-enabled S Pen is like performing a magic trick, and does indeed open up new shots shows both your hands. That's been great, as Samsung proclaimed on launch day.

These specs make it perhaps more appropriate to compare the Note 9 to a laptop than a smartphone. Tools like DeX mean it only takes a cable connected to a screen to transform it into a pocket-sized PC, meaning some users may even choose to forego their laptops entirely. This is also where the over-sized screen of the so-called phablet – a portmanteau of 'phone' and 'tablet' – comes into good effect, as it doubles as a keyboard and trackpad. New Bluetooth-capabilities of the stylus S-Pen, which slides out from the bottom of the device, means it also comes with a remote control when playing videos and music, taking pictures or presenting slides.

Speaking of the camera, the introduction of artificial intelligence into its software makes a big difference when taking pictures when compared to the same 12-megapixel dual-lens snapper used in the Galaxy S9+. The AI recognizes 20 different scenes, including portraits, sunsets, and plates of food, allowing it to automatically adjust its settings to capture the best possible image.
