Samsung Galaxy Note 9 official, T-Mobile will offer half-off deal

Epic’s changing Fortnite matchmaking to save console players from keyboard and mouse

We're glad Samsung zigged and didn't call the camera AI.

The phone, which looks almost identical to 2017's Galaxy Note 8, is an incremental upgrade much like the Galaxy S9 was to the S8.

You slide the S Pen into a slot on the device to charge it.Samsung claims you'll get 30 minutes of "standby" juice after charging it for one minute. The S Pen on the Galaxy Note 9 supports Bluetooth Low Energy to let you use it as a remote control for things like taking a photo, playing or pausing a song or video, or launch your favorite app with a long press. We previously reported on FCC documents which outlined new capabilities of the A S Pen, which have been enabled by giving the stylus Bluetooth connectivity.

This means that the Galaxy skin is inevitably going to be one of the rarest skins in the game, because of how few people comparatively are going to be able to get it versus the massive playerbase. The new Galaxy Note9 comes with the biggest screen ever on a Note, a 6.4-inch edge-to-edge Super AMOLED 516ppi display (without any notches) said to be great for productivity, multi-tasking and content consumption. The adjustable aperture module debuted on the Galaxy S9, and was one of the only upgrades over the GS8. Samsung also went with a much bigger battery, 4,000 mAh, compared to the 3,300 mAh version in the previous model, so battery life should be a bit better. On the front of the Note 9 is an 8MP camera for all your selfie needs.

But, Samsung remained tight-lipped on most of the details.

A 128GB model is also available that comes with 6GB of RAM while the larger capacity model has 8GB of RAM.

Samsung had one more thing to unveil at its Unpacked event in NY earlier today after confirming everything we already knew about the Galaxy Note 9, taking the wraps off a new smartwatch with a simplified name, and presenting teasing its long overdue Bixby-controlled answer to Apple's HomePod.


A number of well-known influencers are at the Samsung Unpacked event, including YouTuber Casey Neistat and French streamer Gotaga. All of those features are packed into a body that offers IP68 water and dust resistance.

The world's largest smartphone manufacturer unveiled on Thursday the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 - an updated, but not exactly revolutionary, addition to its smartphone lineup.

Samsung announced that the Note 9 will be available on August 24. Samsung is offering the device in two color options, which are Ocean Blue and Lavender Purple.

According to Samsung the phone is available to pre-order right now, respectively costing £899 and £1,099 for the 128GB and 512GB models. Even charges at same time at Note 9 with wireless charger duo.

It's worth pointing out that Samsung says Internet Explorer 11 and older do not support live stream playback, and that if you're watching on a mobile device you'll need to have the latest version of either Chrome or YouTube installed.
