Samsung Galaxy Note 9

August has always smelled Note for years, and in keeping with this recent tradition, the hot summer month has once again hosted the presentation of a new member of the S Pen saga. New York has been the chosen stage to announce the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, which this year comes with a striking touch of color.

Strictly speaking, it is the S Pen that has taken this renewal, although what stands out beyond the new tone are the functions that this latest evolution of the pointer presents. With the double camera, variable aperture, more battery and a large screen, Samsung Galaxy Note 9 seek to be the alternative to those looking for a “plus” that already incorporates the Galaxy S.

6.4 inches QHD without notch
As we anticipated the many leaks on this expected Samsung terminal, there is nothing to break with the previous design lines and the genetics of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. We have an aluminum body L700 and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 built to resist water and dust with IP68 certification.

What are different are the colors, at least in combination with a new S Pen in the case of Samsung Galaxy Note 9 blue, since the pointer comes in yellow. The same does not happen in the other variants, in which the S Pen goes to play with the phone (black or violet).

Of course, we must see how they feel in hand, the 201 grams that weigh. And above all check, if the design is still ergonomic and the grip is comfortable since it is a mobile that integrates a 6.4-inch screen with QHD + resolution, with an aspect of 18.5: 9.

A panel larger than its close cousin the Samsung Galaxy S9 +, with that “plus” indicating that it is the largest of the two Galaxy S, achieving differentiation more (in addition to the characteristic S Pen). Like this one, the Note 9 fingerprint reader happens to be under the back cameras and not next to them.

In common is also USB type C centered on the base, next to a 3.5-millimeter jack that is still present in Samsung’s flagship (here perhaps with more reason, since the introduction of the S Pen in theory not there will be that thinning that sometimes sacrifices it). And another classic is the signature of AKG Harman in the audio, in this case in the stereo speakers.

The power of 1 TB data
Perhaps the most predictable (part leaks) was the hardware combination of this new Samsung flagship. As such it was not going to be less than its predecessors and incorporates the Exynos 9810 house processor, although where it takes chest with respect to these in RAM because the options, in this case, are 6 and 8 GB of RAM, putting on the line of the most powerful currently in the Android mobile market.

Few surprises with this expansion in terms of maximum external storage, since the teaser that appeared before time already told us what is confirmed today: there is a superior model of 512 GB expandable with a microSD of up to 512 GB, which is the practice we can have a terminal with 1 TB of storage. All this cooled by a liquid cooling system that extends the carbon fiber surface so that there is a more efficient dissipation.

The other advantage with respect to the S9 is that with a volume (and a greater weight) the body of this Samsung Galaxy Note 9 houses a battery of 4,000 milliamps/hour, the highest in the history of the Note, according to the house. It is a capacity 21% greater than that of its predecessor Note 8, it will be necessary to see in an in-depth analysis if this is noticed in practice.

All this to have a smartphone ready for the most demanding tasks, such as video games. And spinning with this, the manufacturer and Epic Games have announced the agreement for ‘Fortnite’ for Android to debut with Galaxy phones.

The indiscreet and improved S Pen
The invitation that invited us to attend and attend the presentation event of this Samsung Galaxy Note 9 was already starring (more or less discreetly) for an S Pen with that new yellow tone that we have already commented. But the important novelties are functional, going beyond aesthetics.

Thus, the S Pen incorporates Bluetooth connectivity and a capacitor that allows it to have the power to act as a remote control for certain applications, having usable functions for the connection with Samsung DeX. According to the company, 40 seconds of charge is given for a 30-minute activity or 200 clicks, and the pointer is active as a remote control up to a distance of 10 meters.

Repeating bet with the cameras
The star feature with which Samsung wanted to take a turn with the photography flagship was the variable opening. In the analysis of the S9 + we could test it thoroughly and we saw that the result was noticeable although perhaps without breaking too much with the previous, but the manufacturer is confident with this and the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 repeats with variable aperture f / 1.5-2.4 and something that not all incorporate their range stops: optical image stabilization in both sensors, both the main and the secondary.

Two 12 megapixel sensors, one standard, and one telephoto, which allow 2x zoom, recording in slow motion at 960 fps (HD720p) and in the case the main one incorporate Dual Pixel technology. The front camera, on the other hand, is 8 megapixels and aperture f / 1.7, both with portrait mode.

The front also allows the incorporation of Intelligent Scan, the system of the house that is based on reading the iris but uses face recognition when the lighting does not allow an accurate reading of the first, as we saw in the S9 +.

Availability and price of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9
If we convince the characteristics of this newborn Samsung Galaxy Note 9 we can reserve it from today, since the pre-sale period is already underway. There will also be a kind of “recovery plan” for which a bonus is given if a previous Samsung is delivered, which will give details about the maximum money that a used terminal can be worth.

The sale period began August 24, and the following versions are available for INR 67,900 in India:

* 6 GB RAM / 128 GB of storage: in violet or black.

* 8 GB RAM / 512 GB of storage: in blue (exclusive color for this model).
