Well, after countless leaks over the last couple of months, the South Korean Smartphone giant has finally launched the latest Note device in its Galaxy lineup. The phone looks a lot like the last Galaxy Note 8 but has some improvements on the hardware apart from just being a spec bump.
Let’s talk about the hardware improvements first, the Note 9 has a much larger 4000 mAh battery which should help with its endurance. Alos, after fixing the fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy S9 a few months ago, the fingerprint sensor has also been moved to a place where it is easier to reach.
The S pen on the Note 9 supports Bluetooth and Samsung also announced that it will open up a developer SDK which may bring new features to the S-Pen in future.
Spec wise, the Note 9 is a flagship on all regards, a 6.4-inch display, Snapdragon 845 SoC and 6GB of RAM which is paired with 256 GB storage which can be expanded via MicroSD cards.
The phone will come in 4 colors: Black (with Black S-Pen), Purple (with Purple S-pen), Copper (with Copper S-Pen) and Ocean Blue (Yellow S-Pen).
Thinking of buying the Note 9? You may have to spend a ton this time. The 512GB variant is going to be launched at an almost ridiculous $1250 which is far more expensive than Apple’s iPhone X.
