The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 was introduced last night at an event in New York. The phone has a 6.4-inch OLED screen which has a resolution of an impressive 2960×1440 pixels. Samsung has also bumped up the battery to 4000mAh which supports for both wired and wireless quick charging.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a Note without the S-Pen. Samsung has made a handful of upgrades to the stylus this time too.F or starters, it’s now Bluetooth enabled which will essentially allow you to use it as a remote. You can swipe through pictures on your phone with the button present at the top, employ it as shutter key for clicking photos, or skip through slides on PowerPoint. The rest of the S-Pen features are present too such as you can doodle on the screen even when it’s off for quick notes, translate text by hovering over them, and more.
As for the cameras, the Note 9 inherits the hardware from its sibling, the S9 Plus. There are two 12-megapixel sensors on the rear, one of which is a telephoto lens and the other has a variable aperture between f/1.5 and f/2.4. On the front, you’ll find an 8-megapixel f/1.7 selfie camera. It’s powered by Samsung’s own Exynos 9810 octa-core chip, has up to 8GB of RAM, Android 8.1 with a custom skin, and 512GB of onboard storage which can be expanded through a MicroSD card slot. Samsung also still detests #donglelife and hence, the Note 9 does have a standard headphone jack. Read more about the phone here.
