Hands-on Samsung Galaxy Note 9 – Price And 10 Things

Hands-on Samsung Galaxy Note 9
                               

We’re getting closer to that August 9th Unpacked press conference, where Samsung will announce the Galaxy Note 9 in all its splendor. That means we’re bound to find out more details about the handset in the weeks leading up to the event. This week alone we heard the handset might hit stores by August 24th in Korea (and likely elsewhere), and we saw what looks very much like one of the first posters for the handset. But wait, there’s more! A new report from Poland may have revealed pricing in the country, and it’s likely a good indication of what we can expect in other markets.

The phone shouldn’t be much more expensive than last year’s Note 8, which sold for $950 in the United States when it was released. A recent report from a Russian blogger who consistently gets his hands on unreleased Samsung hardware said that the Note 9 will have a similar price to its predecessor in the region.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 – 10 Things You Need To Know

18.5:9 AMOLED Display

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is expected to come with a 6.4-inch AMOLED widescreen 18.5:9 display. The Galaxy S9 Plus and the Galaxy Note 9 will have very similar displays. But traditionally the displays on the S-series smartphones are a bit more rounded than those on the Note series smartphones.

Bigger Battery

The upcoming Galaxy Note 9 will pack in a bigger battery. The Note 9 will see a substantial upgrade in terms of battery and battery life. The Note 8 came with a 3,300mAh battery unit. But as per a leak, the Galaxy Note 9 will come with a larger 3,850mAh or 4,000mAh battery.

Flagship Processor

This one is a no-brainer. Just as the Samsung S9 siblings, the Galaxy Note 9 will get powered by the same flagship processor from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 845. In India however, the Note 9 will be powered by Samsung’s own Exynos 9810 SoC which is equivalent to the Snapdragon 835 in terms of power, performance and efficiency.

256GB Internal Storage

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will feature 6GB RAM with two storage options of 64GB and 256GB. The recently launched S9 smartphones are also available with similar storage variants of 64GB and 256GB.

Dual Cameras

The upcoming Galaxy Note 9 will ship with a rear dual camera setup at the back. At the back, the device will pack two 12MP cameras. There will be one wide-angle lens, while the other will be a telephoto lens. There’s also a possibility of it featuring the same mechanically adjustable aperture like Galaxy S9 Plus. Up front, the device will come with an 8MP shooter with a f/1.7 aperture.

Android Oreo

The device will run Android Oreo 8.1 out of the box. The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will run Samsung’s latest TouchWiz UI based on Android Oreo, with the latest upgraded Bixby smart assistant baked in.

No Under-Display Fingerprint Scanner

The under-display fingerprint sensor has been rumoured for a number of times in previous Samsung devices. So far, we haven’t seen anything from Samsung with the technology. And it seems that the Note 9 will also miss out on the under-display fingerprint scanner. Samsung has claimed in the past that they will not include the technology until they have perfected it.

Facial Recognition And Water & Dust Resistance

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will feature an iris scanner and an advanced facial recognition technology for enabling options for biometric locks. The smartphone will ship with IP68 certification for water and dust resistance.

Next Gen Bixby With AI

The Samsung Note 9 will feature the next-generation Bixby AI, which is expected to make the device smarter than its predecessors. The latest version of Bixby already supports ‘live translation’ of Indian languages. So the next version could add to these functionalities

5G Connectivity

As per the leak, the Note 9 will support the advanced high-frequency antenna for upcoming 5G connectivity. The device will pack in a high-speed LTE modem, called the Snapdragon X24 to support Gigabit LTE.
The upcoming Galaxy Note 9 will be at par with the recently launched Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus, just in a bigger size. Compared to Note 8, the successor will use a larger battery, a better hardware with a few upgrades.
