But be prepared to part with an iPhone X-like ransom: $999.99 for a Note9 with 128GB of storage and 6GB of RAM, or $1,249.99 for 512GB and 8GB, respectively. There was plenty of speculation surrounding the device but now the details are official so how does it compare to the current competition? The new Note is set to hit stores on August 24.
Samsung Electronics launched the new Samsung Galaxy Watch, a name change after Galaxy Gear, with a longer battery life, LTE connectivity, wellness capabilities and timeless and personalized design. It measures 161.9 x 76.4 x 8.8mm and weighs 201g.
That's a lot of money for a phone that looks almost identical to last year's model, save one change: the location of the fingerprint sensor. Flaw detection also promises to flag you if a picture was blurry, the lens was smudged or backlighting messed up image quality. It comes in four colours, Midnight Black, Metallic Copper, Ocean Blue, and Lavender Purple. The AI assisted module on the Note 9 is a triple camera setup with two at the rear and one at the front. Experts are noting that features revealed in recent years by Samsung and Apple are more incremental than revolutionary.
It sports a Quad HD+ resolution, which results in a pixel density of 516ppi and it comes with support for Mobile HDR.
Samsung appears to be building off of the successes of the Galaxy S9 camera.
The S-Pen comes in a fun color to complement your phone, and when you write on the screen in screen off memo mode, it will also write in that same fun color.
Although Samsung's Note phones are large, niche products intended for power users, they offer a preview of what's to come in the mass-market Galaxy S line. You get the same two 12-megapixel cameras and the same dual-aperture (f/1.5 or f/2.4) with the primary, wide-angle camera. The smartphone has an 8MP front facing camera for clicking selfies. The 42mm option has a 1.2-inch screen, 270mAh battery, and 45 hours of battery life. The S Pen now has a button on it and can be used as a remote control, for taking photos away from the phone and giving presentations. Samsung has evidently gotten over the excessive caution it displayed regarding battery capacity directly following the catastrophic launch of the Note 7. The S-Pen is a Samsung proprietary stylus which the company provides with both the Note and the Tab series.
The Galaxy Note 8 then added the live-message feature that allowed users to create their own animated GIF files with the S-pen.
We're looking forward to trying out more of the features soon though - there's a lot to pick through here as Samsung feels a bit late to the smart speaker game. but will this premium-feeling device help it make up ground?
