  • Samsung launches the Galaxy Note9 with 6.4-inch screen

Samsung has come up with many launch offers to sweeten the deal for Note customers.

The Note 9 also comes with a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display, a huge 4,000mAh battery, and up to 512GB of storage and 8GB of RAM, the first model of Samsung's smartphone to feature such a strong memory capacity. The Samsung Galaxy Note9 was unveiled in NY on Thursday night and it looks like a solid performer.

The device runs Android 8.1 Oreo OS, the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset for the U.S. customers and the models powered by Samsung's very own "Exynos 9 Series 9810" chips will head to the rest of the world, including India.

Upon closer inspection, you do notice some differences: the S Pen is held in place more tightly, the charging port is connected to the motherboard, but not a part of it, which makes for easier repairs, the earpiece on the new phone is larger, which should result in better call quality. Samsung has been conservative on battery improvements ever since its Note 7 phone in 2016 developed a tendency to ignite, prompting an expensive recall and delivering a hit to the company's reputation. It has a built-in battery which is charged when in the silo. I think this is because it is very good but an incremental upgrade. Both rear cameras feature optical image stabilisation.

Fortnite was finally announced for Android today, but as an exclusive to Samsung Galaxy devices for the time being. On stage a pro-doodler demonstration even swapped between the two devices.

The Note has always cost more than the Galaxy S phones, but users were also getting more: a bigger screen, split-screen multitasking, a dual camera. All you need to do is plug it in with an HDMI adaptor. Biometric security is catered for with Iris Scanner, Fingerprint Scanner, Facial Recognition or the "Intelligent Scan" combo of iris and face.

You can preorder a Galaxy Note 9 direct from Samsung where you will be asked to select your carrier (AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon, or US Cellular, or an unlocked model) and color (Ocean Blue or Lavender Purple).

And the Note9 itself, it's on Samsung's official online shop and you can pre-order the from now until August 21. The starting price of $1,000 is an increase from the Note 8, but on par with Apple's top-of-the-line iPhone X. The Note 9 will get double the storage, at 128 gigabytes, compared with typical high-end phones, including the iPhone X. Samsung will also sell a 512-gigabyte version for power users for $1,250. AT&T and Verizon are doing buy-one-get-one-free promotions, and Sprint is doing a 50-percent off the monthly payment plan, but every single one of those promotions starts at Samsung's listed price of $999 (or $1,249).

The new Galaxy Watch was designed for all lifestyles to help to meet consumers' needs, such as longer battery life to stay connected longer and better health tracking, helping users reach their goals We offer them connectivity experiences all around their wrists, " said DJ Koh, president and CEO of the IT & Mobile Communications Division, Samsung Electronics.
