Samsung Launches its Latest Smartphone: Galaxy Note 9

Samsung Launches its Latest Smartphone: Galaxy Note 9

The device will be available at prices starting Rs.67,900.

At a glitzy the launch event in Brooklyn, Samsung unveiled a suite of high tech products, including a smart speaker and watch, and then showed off the new Galaxy Note 9, which will be available for purchase on August 24.

"The Note has always been our showcase for premium technology and industry defining innovations".

So, comparing Note 9 to S9+, you're basically paying for two extra things: a screen that's two-tenths of an inch bigger and a Bluetooth-powered stylus. It, however, did not disclose the date of availability.

For the past several Samsung Galaxy phone releases, the Korean giant has often offered the best deal on its newest phone through its own store.

Samsung is betting everything on the Galaxy Note 9 in a saturated market where all smartphones are more or less the same. It is good to see the rear camera with telephoto/wide lenses have even wider apertures and dual OIS.

Admittedly, these aren't pressure sensitive, like the S Pen that comes with the Galaxy Note 9.

With Arsenal to host reigning Premier League champions Manchester City in the season opener on Sunday, Emery could be in for a baptism of fire.


Firstly, the Note 9 ships with a new and improved S Pen, which comes with Bluetooth LE (Low Energy) baked-in for the first time.

There is no doubt this is another feature aimed at business and productivity users - you can imagine offices all over the place using their Note phones to make presentations, with the S Pen used to move to the next slide. You can control the camera with a press of the S Pen button, and there will be an SDK for developers to tie into the button in order to add new functionality. It has a battery capacity of 4,000 mAh, 21 percent more than the Note 8, but is about 0.2 mm thicker as a result.

Samsung's also promising that the Note 9 is created to make sure it lasts.

The flagship smartphone has also retained the iconic 3.5-mm headphone jack. It can be fully charged in 40 seconds after being inserted in the slot and has 30 minutes standby time. If they succeed, one of 20 sets of adjustments are made to tweak the contrast, colour and other settings. Both the phone and S-pen are IP68 certified for water/dust resistance.

The Galaxy Watch battery life of up to 80 hours eliminates the need for daily charging and thanks to the LTE connectivity is a truly independent device experience through messaging, mapping and music.

Samsung is selling it in 42mm and 46mm sizes in Rose Gold, Silver, and Midnight Black.

According to her, the industry will have to wait and watch for the Galaxy Note 9 to pick up pace with its discounted predecessor now selling in highly competitive and price-sensitive India market. It also has eight-far field microphones for voice commands, so you can for example say "Hey Bixby, play my favourite album", and it will do so.
