Samsung Galaxy Note 9 price and release date

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 price and release date

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 launch is taking place later today. At the other, it's also catering towards the need of business users by upgrading the phablet's S-Pen.

We haven't had a chance to benchmark it yet, but Samsung claims that the Note 9 (like all of its phones over the past several years) supports the fastest network speeds of any phone on the market (up to 1.2 Gbps).

The video shows the incredibly popular Fortnite game running on a Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, which was hacked into working by xdadevelopers and some of their community members, who not only obtained the Fortnite Mobile Android APK but also bypassed lock downs to get it running. 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. In previous years, the company's flagship phones have typically launched in fairly sober finishes - mainly black, and maybe with a silver option - with more interesting colors following on later.

While the Note 9 addresses the few gaps that the Note 8 didn't quite ideal; those expecting more in terms of design may be on the fence. Note that Samsung says stocks are limited, so you may want to hurry.

Other carryovers from the Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ is the chipset - Exynos 9810 Octa - and the inclusion of stereo speakers (finally).

For Samsung, the Galaxy Note line has served as both a spring of innovation as well as a source of unprecedented controversy.

New college basketball rules unveiled - but do they fix anything?
College players would have to request an evaluation from the NBA Undergraduate Advisory Committee on their draft prospects. The rule changes are aimed at giving basketball student-athletes more flexibility for going pro and also earning a degree.

These are just some usage scenarios Samsung highlighted with the new Bluetooth-enabled S Pen.

The Galaxy Note 9 packs a dual camera setup at the rear with dual optical image stabilisation. Not unlike the Huawei P20 Pro's Master AI feature, Scene Optimiser lets the Note 9 recognise and enhance up to 20 different scenes.

For a while we've been hearing about Samsung's next entry in the smartwatch business, which we already know is going to be called the Galaxy Watch rather than the Gear S4.

While the familiar design might not turn many heads, the performance of the Note 9 remains top-of-the-line. And it's exactly what we have expected it to be.

From August 9 to August 23, Samsung will take pre-orders and offer €100 for trading in an old smartphone. For the time being, this is without a doubt the best Note device yet, and I can't wait to put the Note 9 through its paces in a full review.
