The Note 9 has received another predictable spec bump over its predecessor, with the phone available with the Snapdragon 845 in the United States of America and China, while the rest of us will get the phone with Samsung's own chip, the Exynos 9810. If the pen does die, it can still be used as a regular capacity S Pen like older models.
The phone is also available in two configurations - 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage, or 8GB RAM and a massive 512GB of internal storage.
That loyalty means there's an appetite for the Note 9 even if it's got an eyebrow-raising price. In fact, Knox is so secure that recent Galaxy phones were approved for use by the U.S. Department of Defense to handle sensitive military data.
According to her, the industry will have to wait and watch for the Galaxy Note 9 to pick up pace with its discounted predecessor now selling in highly competitive and price-sensitive India market.
Pics Samsung is allegedly mulling ending its Galaxy Note line, now that nearly every smartphone on the planet is larger than the original Note - which was so absurdly large at launch it was dubbed the first "phablet".
"We're three generations removed now", Samsung's director of USA product marketing, Suzanne De Silva, said of the company's renewed confidence in the battery. It might not be for everyone, but on the whole it looks like Samsung's "elegant design" promise may actually have come to fruition. The Galaxy Note 9 wields a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with a 2960x1440 resolution (18.5:9 aspect ratio), 83.4 percent screen-to-body ratio, and HDR support, and Gorilla Glass 5 protection. The device has a "water carbon cooling system", which spreads and ultimately dissipates heat from the chipset using carbon fiber to, ideally, prevent overheating.
This is likely to appeal to hardcore gamers and other power users if they can justify the cost. The deal will hopefully boost the music-streaming service's user base, the companies announced at an event on Thursday. And the odd, three-legged, cauldron-like design is sure to set it apart from the Amazon Echo and Apple HomePod devices of the world.
The Samsung Galaxy Watch is the best smartwatch Samsung has ever made.
It also features stress-tracking software and the ability to connect to mobile networks independently.
While Apple is ranked the bestselling wearable tech manufacturer, according to IDC's latest figures, Samsung did not even make the top five.
