Samsung has just officially announced it’s best Note series phone yet -Galaxy Note 9 with massive 4000mAh battery. The device added 0.1-inch to have a total of 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display compares to 6.3 that debuted with last year’s Note 8. The Note 9 has the same 1440 x 2960px resolution onboard HDR 10 compliant and Always-on-display.
The camera department has been enhanced to the standard of this year’s Galaxy S9 by featuring the same camera setup of dual 12MP flexible aperture lens from f/1.5-f/2.4 accompanied by 12MP (f/2.4) telephoto shooter. Both are equipped with Samsung new smart camera capable of detecting flaws, scenes, optimize colors and contrast. On the front panel is the old and same 8MP snapper coupled with f/1.7 aperture lens.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has under its helm Exynos 9810 paired with 8GB RAM for flawless and efficient operations. The memory comes in multiple options 128GB and 512GB with either way providing you with additional memory space using MicroSD card. It also debuted with a smarter and efficient S-pen, the very first to integrate a Bluetooth.
It can act as a remote shooter for the camera and can also be used to start a presentation with 10 meters and 30 minutes life or 200 clicks. The new S-pen needs only 40s seconds to refill inside its holster on the phone with three input – short press, long and double press.
There is no under-screen identification scanner as everything has been moved to the back under the dual camera sensor which is likely to be in a more sensible position now. Unfortunately, the big 4000mAh can only charge as first as what Quick charge 2.0 can go. It also supports wireless charging as always.
Of course, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 specifications include IP67 rating which means the device is water resistant and can be immersed under 1.5liters of water for 30 minutes without damage. It also supports Samsung pay, visa and master card enabled to spice things up even more.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 comes in colors of Ocean Blue, Lavender Purple Midnight Black, and Metallic Copper. The pricing will start from $999 for the 6/128GB memory variant and will cost as high as $1,250 for the 8/512GB model
