Samsung Galaxy Note 9

The most anticipated device of this year i.e. the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is finally launched after tons of leaks and rumours. The device is unveiled today on August 9, as per the schedule at an event held in New York.

The Note 9 is on par with what we saw in previously leaked specifications, images and videos. It comes with a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED Infinity Display having a resolution of QuadHD+(2960 x 1440 pixel), in an 18.5:9 aspect ratio, protected with Gorilla Glass 5. Moreover, the display has a pixel density of 514ppi and supports HDR10 content & Always On feature.

Under the hood, the Galaxy Note 9 is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 chipset, limited to the US region, whereas the global variants will ship with Exynos 9810 SoC at the core. Furthermore, it comes in 6/128GB and 8/512GB RAM and Storage Configurations. The dual sim variants will get a hybrid sim solution for further storage expansion up to 512GB via MicroSD card.

In the optics, the Galaxy Note 9 gets an optically stabilized dual camera set up at the back, featuring a 12-megapixel primary shooter with a variable aperture from f/1.5 to f/2.4 and 1.4-micron pixel size, coupled with a secondary 12-megapixel telephoto lens that offers lossless 2X optical zoom and bears an aperture of f/2.4. For selfies, we have an 8-megapixel with f/1.7 aperture shooter. This time, Samsung has packed certain AI features in the camera app including smart scene recognition.

The bundled S Pen is one of the major highlights of the device. As rumoured earlier, it comes with Bluetooth LE support and allows the users to take photos remotely in addition to performing other tasks like playing/ pausing YouTube videos or music and unlocking the phone without actually touching it. It takes just a minute to charge fully when docked in the phone and delivers a battery life of 30mins for the Bluetooth functions to work, however, the regular S Pen functions won’t utilize any charge.

The fingerprint scanner is now shifted below the Camera module that houses the Heart Rate sensor as well, like the one on the Note 8. We also have the Iris Scanner and Face Unlock system onboard. Additionally, the popular game Fortnite Battle Royale has made its debut on Android with the Note 9 as an exclusive.

On the software front, it runs on Samsung’s Experience UX based on Android 8.1 Oreo. The phone draws its juice from a large 4,000mAh battery with the support for Wireless Charging in addition to the Samsung’s Adaptive Fast Charging.

Connectivity features include DeX, ANT+, Bluetooth 5.0, 4G VoLTE, Wifi, GPS, NFC (which aids the Samsung Pay), and more.

In the optics department, the Lenovo S5 Pro gets a total of four cameras. The back houses a dual camera setup comprising of a 20-megapixel primary sensor and a 12-megapixel secondary shooter which allow for a lossless 2X optical zoom, while at the front we have another dual camera combination of a 20-megapixel primary sensor paired with an 8-megapixel secondary sensor, along with the IR camera and other sensors necessary for the 3D face unlock which seems quite interesting for the price. The cameras are further aided by certain AI features including automatic scene recognition, Beauty mode, etc for enhanced results.
