Samsung Galaxy Note 9: Everything you need to know
Samsung’s most powerful phone is back…and better.
Samsung has officially unveiled its long-gestured Galaxy Note 9—a boosted iteration of the company’s best, accompanied by a spunky new banana-colored Bluetooth-enabled S-pen.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 returns in familiar and formidable fashion: a large 6.4-inch screen with teensy bezels, a gorgeously immersive Super AMOLED-powered WQHD+ display, and bold color options to fit any and all personalities.
Inside, it’s even more promising: Samsung’s new beastly phone ships with a robust Exynos 9810 octa-core processor, 6GB/8GB RAM, 128GB/512GB internal storage, and a 4,000mAh battery with fast-charging and wireless charging support.
The cameras are worth noting, too. The dual camera system sports both a wide and a zoom lens, powered by large dual 12-megapixel sensors with f/2.4 and f/1.5 apertures. The self-camera is an 8-megapixel shooter with an impressive f/1.7 aperture, which should allow for brighter, better selfies. Most interesting—at least to me!—is that this camera is chucked snuggly in the phone’s slim *ahem* notch-less bezel.
Here’s the complete specs of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9.
