Samsung Galaxy Note 9 India price confirmed: Offers and availability details out

The other colours have a matching colour S-pen. So expect out-of-this-world screen on this phone when you look at it.

Mobiles expert Ru Bhikha, from uSwitch.com, said he expected the company to closely follow the design of last year's critically acclaimed Note 8.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 was unveiled globally last night at an event in NY, with key features being a 6.4-inch QHD+ AMOLED panel, upgraded S Pen with Bluetooth LE, and a 4,000mAh battery that the company claims will deliver day-long battery life.

Users can customize Galaxy Watch even more with a selection of watch faces and straps including options from Braloba, a manufacturer of high quality watch straps. By default the phone runs FullHD+ resolution, but you can switch to QHD+ by changing that in settings.

The Galaxy Note 9 isn't cheap, but it's certainly worth investigating if you're looking for a powerful smartphone you can hold onto for several years. The S-Pen will be usable as a camera shutter button, music playback controller etc. You can get up to Rs 6,000 off on the exchange value.

Samsung also formed a partnership with Epic Games.

The big new feature for this round is, you guessed it, an AI camera.

A raised border surrounds it, making it easier to blindly identify, and it's slightly smaller than before. For shooting selfies, it is equipped with autofocus enabled f/1.7 aperture 8-megapixel camera. For instance, the Note got curved edges before that became standard on Samsung's flagship phones.

The cheapest Note 9 will arrive with 128GB of storage space, while the most expensive will boast an impressive 512GB.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 camera specs has a dual 12MP Camera and 8MP Front Camera.

Note 9 starts at a minimum of 128 gigabytes of storage and 512 GB version offered as well. With AI, the dual camera can automatically detect around 20 different scenes for better photography experience.

In our brief tests, the Note 9 recognised a landscape painting, identified bagels as food, and identified two out of three flowers.

Samsung DeX does not require usage of DeX docking station on the Note 9.

- The Note 9, just like other high-end Samsung phones, comes with a SuperAMOLED display.

The Note 9 is the first Android phone to support Fortnite, a hugely popular video-and-smartphone survival game that was only playable on computers, consoles and Apple products until now.

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.

"We track a lot of mobile games and apps, and we've seen such a phenomenal spike in Fortnite spend across all the platforms, but definitely mobile devices".

Headphone lovers rejoice: the Note 9 keeps its headphone jack. Samsung announced the Galaxy Note 9, along with its first smart speaker Galaxy Home, and Galaxy Watch. Battery life could make or break a smartwatch, so it is reassuring to know that Samsung has given ample focus on that aspect. In recent years, numerous new features from Samsung and Apple have been incremental rather than revolutionary. Unfortunately, you're still limited to 720p unless you want to reduce the frame rate.

Note 9 will come in two colors at USA launch: Lavender Purple and Ocean Blue.

How to buy it: The Galaxy Note 9 will be available for purchase from August 24, including possibly in India.
