At over 200g, it will be interesting to see how this impacts long-term usage, as we found weight to be a bit of a concern with the Galaxy Note 8 itself.
"[The Note 9] will stand out in a sea of black phones out there", said Suzanne De Silva, Samsung director of product strategy and marketing, ahead of the launch. All this has been achieved by developing a processor that's specifically designed for a smartwatches. If you think that it resembles a lot to the Gear S3, you're not wrong. Well, that's because you can use the S Pen as a remote control.
The curtains have finally been pulled back on the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, and this time around, the tech giant has put the battery back in the spotlight. It happens nearly instantaneously as well - I picked the Note 9 up and pointed it at a stack of macaroons, and a small food icon popped up a second or two later near the bottom of the display. The increased battery and storage capacity clearly make it a better phone in real, tangible ways. The new S Pen has a low power Bluetooth module which charges instantly each time you stow it into the phone. These are existing Galaxy Note users who are totally hooked to the S Pen.

Ms Sturgess died after being exposed to 10 times the amount of nerve agent the Skripals came into contact with. Rowley said he had found a perfume bottle which he gave to Sturgess, which she sprayed on her wrists.
The S-Pen can be recharges in the phone, with 30 seconds of charging offering 30 minutes of charge. This hasn't been confirmed by Samsung yet, but that's what was rumored before the event in NY. As you would expect, you get other flagship-grade specifications like up to 8GB RAM, Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC in the U.S. and other markets, while the phone will ship with Samsung's own Exynos 9810 chipset in India. In the near future, the company will work to add even more support, especially in third-party apps. New for the Note 9 is a intelligent camera system that uses AI to perform object recognition and detect blinks, notifying the user immediately if a shot is blurry or other issue. On top of that, it also has an on-device, AI-based performance adjuster, which provides software tweaks to ensure optimal performance. The cheapest Note 9 will be the 128 GB version, priced at $999.99. The camera is fast and responsive, images look great, and it feels very similar to the S9+'s shooting experience.
What's new is its AI Scene Optimiser which works like Huawei's Master AI feature on the Mate 10 and P20 series. We are told that it's still better to use the DeX dock as it has built-in cooling fan, supports up to 2K resolution and it can run more apps simultaneously than using the dongle. You can purchase a variety of bands for the device and there will be over 60,000 faces available. You can expect the same Infinity Display, the same headphone jack, and numerous same technologies that you've come to expect from the Galaxy Note brand, including IP68 dust and water resistance, fast wireless charging, Samsung Knox, and several biometric security options, including fingerprint scanning, iris scanning and facial recognition capabilities.
