In the Samsung Unpacked event, the Korean tech giant announced the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, the newest member in the Note series. The device is quite big, considering the screen size of 6.4 inches. Note 9 surpassed the last-year version’s size by .1 inch. That is having said, Samsung has managed to cut down some top and bottom bezels so that some space could be saved. While there aren’t many major differences from the previous iteration, Samsung has optimized the overall experience. One of the notable hardware changes would be the addition of a bigger battery in the device.
Coming to the hardware side, Galaxy Note 9 does not disappoint the Pro users out there. To start with, the device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845. In addition to this, Samsung claims to have made some optimizations to the GPU, for enhanced graphics needs. As to improve the gaming performance, Samsung is also using something called the Water Carbon Cooling System. This is expected to offer stable performance during long gaming sessions. To make these things awesome, the company lets you choose between RAM variants of 6GB and 8GB. The models will have 128GB and 512GB internal storage respectively.
To complement the top-notch hardware, Samsung has also optimized the existing UI. There are some new features with the S Pen and better gesture support. It’s running on Oreo, with an expected upgrade to v9.0 Pie real soon. It also packs some Samsung-exclusive features like Samsung Pay. Considering all these, Note 9 is much more than another Galaxy Note device. Experts have already started loving the Bluetooth LE Stylus support and associated features. The company has used almost the same kind of camera we’ve seen in S9. Also, Samsung doesn’t seem to pull the plug of DeX, which promises to bring a desktop-like experience right from mobile.
