Hands On: What's new with The Galaxy Note9
These days, whether we’re connecting with friends and family, leading a conference call on the go, snapping photos, or playing a favourite mobile game, we rely on our smartphones for almost everything we do.
Combining fan-favourite Note features with an all-day battery, a Bluetooth Low-Energy (BLE) connected S Pen and Samsung Electronics’ most intelligent camera yet, the Galaxy Note9 raises the bar for smartphone performance and power with innovations that help users get the most out of work, play and everything in between.
The premium design cues that Note users know and love have been updated for the Galaxy Note9 to foster a more comfortable and streamlined mobile experience.
The Galaxy Note9’s 6.4-inch Infinity Display is the largest the series has ever seen, with plenty of room to enjoy a favourite movie or game, or write, draw or play with the connected S Pen. The device’s Dia-cut metal frame looks sleek and slim, and features an interplay of glossy and non-glossy finishes that exudes a premium look. The Galaxy Note9 is available in a selection of four standout colour options: Midnight Black, Metallic Copper, Ocean Blue and Lavender Purple.
The Galaxy Note9’s enhanced S Pen introduces entirely new ways for users to manage their device and express their creativity.
The addition of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology has transformed the S Pen into a convenient and customisable remote control that allows you to easily manage apps and functions, including the camera, from within 10 meters of the Galaxy Note9. The PENUP-powered Live Drawing and Photo Drawing features, meanwhile, offer users simple tools to create dynamic works of art that showcase their artistic skills.
In addition to functioning as an intuitive remote control, the Galaxy Note9’s S Pen also includes support for Samsung DeX, Samsung’s powerful productivity solution. Users who connect the Galaxy Note9 to a screen via Samsung DeX will be able to utilise the S Pen to streamline a wide array of tasks, such as delivering presentations.
To make capturing the perfect picture as simple as possible, the Galaxy Note9 enhances Samsung’s industry-leading camera technologies with deep-learning capabilities that make it easy to snap stunning shots.
The camera’s new Flaw Detection and Scene Optimiser features utilise advanced AI to help users take the best possible picture. The former automatically notifies you of any flaws in your photos, such as blinking eyes, so you can capture another shot, while the latter automatically analyses objects, scenery and time elements in the camera’s frame in order to recognise the type of scene you’re photographing and optimise colour tones accordingly.
As teased before the Unpacked event, the Galaxy Note9 offers users the very best in terms of battery life, speed and storage.
The Galaxy Note9’s all-day, 4,000mAh battery is Samsung’s most powerful and reliable yet, and the device’s 128GB of baseline storage offers more than enough room for all of your photos, videos and apps. An industry leading cooling system provides optimal performance during graphics-intensive activities like gaming, while a 10-nanometer processor and support for mobile carriers’ fastest network speeds ensure that you’re never stuck in the slow lane when downloading or streaming your favourite content.
Samsung’s powerful productivity solution, Samsung DeX, becomes even more versatile when paired with the Galaxy Note9.
The new, easy-to-carry HDMI Adaptor makes utilising Samsung DeX even more convenient, creating more opportunities to enjoy a PC-like experience at the office, at home or on the go. The solution’s dual-screen support allows users to work simultaneously on the Galaxy Note9 and on a connected display, and lets you utilise the phone as a touch keyboard, a touchpad, or a surface for drawing with the enhanced S Pen.
