Unboxing for Business: Samsung Galaxy Note 9 at Samsung Unpacked

Samsung launches the Galaxy Note9 with 6.4-inch screen

The new Note 9 will come with two large storage options - 128GB or 512GB - costing £899 or £1,099 respectively, as well as an expandable storage slot for a microSD card to further expand storage.

Equipped with 6 powerful speakers and 8 microphones, Galaxy Home is a device created to offer a high-quality music experience and all the potential of Bixby, thanks to the ability to recognize the user's voice even when it is not near of the device. For instance, the Note got curved edges before that became standard on Samsung's flagship phones.

According to Korean media, Samsung is considering ditching the Note altogether if consumers don't buy as many units as it hopes, and merge it with the premium Galaxy S lineup.

The current Note 8 maxes out at 256 GB.

Even though the improvements from last year aren't huge, Technalysis Research analyst Bob O'Donnell said they will come across as major for those who haven't upgraded for a few years.


Along with exclusive access to the Fortnite Mobile beta on Galaxy S7 and Note 8 phones (as well as Tab S3 tablets and newer), anyone pre-ordering the Note 9 through Samsung.com will also have a choice between a pair of AKG N60 headphones or 15,000 V-Bucks for spending in Fortnite.

It features the same Dual Aperture technology Samsung introduced earlier this year on its Galaxy S9 range, which adjusts the camera lens to light in the same way as the human eye. It's much like applying filters with an app, except that the phone will do this itself, much the way Google's Pixel phones already do.

The Note's stylus will now have Bluetooth, allowing people to control phones and apps from up to 30 feet away. The stylus can now act as a remote for clicking images and it also offers pressure sensitivity through the only switch: Short Press, Long Press, and Doubly Press.

The Android version of the popular game Fortnite is launching Thursday, and just as the rumors suggested, it will be available exclusively on Samsung devices, at least for a few days.

Obviously, a Global Positioning System is present within the Galaxy Watch from Samsung, which also has the right to the exclusive Fortnite on Android. It promises quality sound, in a potential challenge to Apple's Siri-based HomePod speaker. The new smart speaker also supports Spotify music streaming service.
