The device, which hits stores on August 24 and is available for pre-order starting Friday, offers the same look and feel of other Note devices, but the screen is slightly bigger than its predecessor at 6.4 inches.
As for the Galaxy Note 9 512 GB, that won't be offered on every carrier.
In the USA, the Galaxy Note 9 will be available in Ocean Blue and Lavender Purple.
Currently, if you play Fortnite on a console like the PS4, you might inadvertently be playing against keyboard and mouse players, while yourself using a controller. Priced at $11.99 and available through Samsung direct, it includes on-site technical support and assistance, along with a replacement device if yours breaks. Lovers of the game would get an exclusive Note 9 character skin, or alternative appearance for characters. You will need a recent Samsung device for this access, so as long as you own a S7, S8, S9, Note 8, note 9, tab S3, or tab S4, you should be golden.
We already know that the Note9 will sport a 6.4-inch, 2960×1440 AMOLED screen, up to 512GB of storage (expandable to a massive 1TB) and a 4,000mAh battery.
Specs-wise, the Galaxy Note 9 isn't too much of a major upgrade from the Note 8. You can use it to control the camera's shutter, and if you're doing a presentation with the Note 9 - especially relevant, now that the phone supports DeX with just an HDMI adapter - a single click moves on to the next slide, while a double click goes back. As with the S9 it has the variable dual-aperture system (f/1.5 and f/2.4) created to mimic the human eye, a 2x optical zoom on the secondary lens, and a dual-pixel sensor for super slow-mo video recording. Both lenses also sport optical image stabilization (OIS). Instead it has a 12MP lens with an f/1.7 aperture and another 12MP lens with an f/2.4 one.More news: Massive rogue planet found lurking outside our solar system
The Note 8 lacks the Note 9's intelligent camera features listed above, but it's still capable of great shots. The 512 GB Note 9 has some of the largest onboard storage of a phone you can get, and Samsung also adds extra memory, bringing it up to 8 GB of LPDDR4 RAM. On the front there is an 8MP front shooter.
"We believe gamers will benefit from competition among software sources on Android". After all, Samsung claims an all-day battery life with the Note 9.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is of course available now, and it's a fair bit cheaper.
Some changes are bigger than others, and few come as much of a surprise - especially given all the leaks ahead of launch - but on paper the Note 9 looks to be about what we'd expect. Outside the USA, it'll come in black and copper.
