Samsung launches the Galaxy Note9 with 6.4-inch screen

On this side of the pond, I've been emailed by Carphone Warehouse in the United Kingdom saying you can get a Galaxy Note9 for £46 per month on with 30GB per month and zero upfront cost. But the highlights will be a bigger battery, a faster processor and improved cellular speeds. "Everything is a little bit better, but nothing's revolutionary". The device resembles more of a "tock" upgrade in a standard product cycle that lasts for two years.

Perhaps keenly aware that phones don't sell themselves these days, Samsung talked up integration and partnerships. The company is also sending phones to outside labs, including UL, for independent safety tests.

The new Samsung Galaxy Note9 shares a lot of qualities with the new Galaxy Tab 4.

The "phablet" - combining features of a phone with a tablet - comes with Samsung's largest battery in a flagship phone - and the company seems to be confident in having left the explosive failure of the Galaxy Note 7 batteries behind it. Unlocking options include a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, iris scanner, and facial recognition. Both are available worldwide from August 24.

When I reached out to Samsung to ask about the Note 9's pricing, a representative told me: "We are doing things differently this time and aligned to one price across carriers".

The device that runs OS Android 8.1 (Oreo) will have the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 system-on-chip (SoC) 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.

The device, which was unveiled on Thursday at the Barclays Centre in NY, is available for pre-booking in India with availability expected to begin later this month.

Cheong Wa Dae said "proper steps" will be taken as soon as a government probe into the coal shipments is completed. The North noted that they returned remains of US soldiers who fought in the Korean War to the USA last week.


The Note 9 will compete head-on with Apple's iPhones as well as OnePlus' smartphone among other smartphones in the premium smartphone category in the Indian market. With the knowledge of the beta going live also came with the reveal of a nifty looking new skin.

DeX is also on the cards, but instead of needing a separate dock the Note 9 can offer the DeX experience right out of the box.

As with the Pixel, the Note won't be saving a version without the tweaks.

There's also been an upgrade in the camera department.

The Note's stylus will now have Bluetooth, allowing people to control phones and apps from up to 30 feet away.

After months of speculation and leaks, the Samsung Galaxy Note9 has finally been unveiled in NY! With 7nm semiconductor fabrication techniques not quite ready for mass production, Samsung uses its 10nm eight-core Exynos 9810 system-on-chip in EMEA regions, and Qualcomm's 10nm Snapdragon 845 SoC in the Americas and China. It could be that Samsung has found a way to introduce this feature without over-doing it, so that will be something to look at in our full review.
