Samsung Electronics Company yesterday launched the latest addition to its premium Note series — Galaxy Note 9 — boasting that the device “delivers the ultimate in performance, a new S Pen with connectivity for the first time ever, and Samsung's most intelligent camera yet”.
“The Note has always been our showcase for premium technology and industry-defining innovation, and Galaxy Note 9 is no exception. It's designed for a level of performance, power and intelligence that today's power users want and need,” DJ Koh, president and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division, Samsung Electronics, said at the launch in New York.
“Note fans are Samsung's most loyal; we know they want it all, to get the most out of work and play, and Galaxy Note 9 is the only phone that can keep up with their busy lives,” Koh added.
Pointing out that people rely on their smartphones for almost everything they do, Samsung said that the Note 9 delivers all-day battery to talk, text, play games, and watch movies; two internal storage options — 128 GB or 512 GB. And, with the ability to insert a micro-SD card, Galaxy Note 9 provides 1 TB of space for photos, videos and apps.
The phone also has a 10nm processor and support for the fastest network speeds available in the market (up to 1.2 gigabits per second) to stream and download without slowing down.
Samsung also said that the Note 9 includes an industry-leading and Samsung-developed water carbon cooling system and on-device AI-based performance-adjusting algorithm to deliver the powerful yet stable performance.
“The new S Pen delivers an entirely new way to use the Note. With just a click, it's now possible to take selfies and group pictures, present slides, pause and play video, and more,” the company said, adding that developers can even integrate the S Pen's new, advanced BLE functionalities into their apps later this year.
