[In-Depth Look #4] Beautiful From Every Angle: The Design of the Galaxy Note9

Samsung approached the Galaxy Note9’s design with equal focus on usability and on empowering users’ expression.

 

As a result, the latest addition to the Note family is not only easy to use, with its customizable, Bluetooth Low-Energy (BLE) connected S Pen, it’s also easy on the eyes, with a thoughtfully refined display and frame design. And with a total of four standout color options, which users are encouraged to mix and match with S Pens and accessories of various hues, the Galaxy Note9 offers users more ways to express their fashion and style.

 

 

Enhancing an Iconic Design

The Galaxy Note9 furthers the Note series’ stunning design heritage with a sleek and square form factor, as well as enhancements that enable users to multitask more efficiently and enjoy immersive multimedia experiences.

 

A cornerstone of Samsung’s design legacy, the Infinity Display is known for its seamless form and captivating visuals. Measuring 6.4 inches, the Galaxy Note9’s Quad HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity Display is the series’ largest yet, offering more room for work, play and everything in between. That means a bigger screen to immerse yourself in a favorite movie or game, and more space to write or create with the S Pen.

 

 

To amplify users’ immersion, Samsung rounded the corners of the display to a bare minimum, and refined the Galaxy Note9’s barely-there bezels to conceal its iris sensor. The screen itself is also a deeper black, which allows it to blend in with the bezels when the device is off and enhances the overall aesthetic. Other enhancements include the redesigned camera deco, which now matches the color of the device, and the repositioned fingerprint sensor, which is now found beneath the camera.

 

The smartphone’s design is rounded off with a choice of four expressive color options: Ocean Blue, Midnight Black, Metallic Copper and Lavender Purple.

 

 

 

A Standout S Pen

Each Note adds new capabilities to the smartphones’ signature feature: the S Pen. Over the years, these enhancements have unlocked innovative ways for users to manage their mobile lives more comfortably and freely. When designing the Galaxy Note9, Samsung’s team focused on enhancements that would take the S Pen’s ‘freeing’ aspects to the next level, transforming it into more than a tool, but rather a device in its own right, complete with Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) connectivity and its own independent functions.

 

The S Pen’s individuality is also reflected in aesthetic elements of the Galaxy Note9’s design. For example, unlike the other colorways, which each feature an S Pen in a matching hue, the stylish Ocean Blue model comes with a vibrant Yellow S Pen that stands out from the rest. And because each model’s S Pen is compatible with any other Galaxy Note9, you can easily swap your S Pen for another if you feel like a different color would better suit your style*.

 

 

The S Pen’s significance to the line is also reflected in the new flagship’s packaging, which prominently displays an image of the S Pen in place of the devices’ traditional logo. This adjustment was made to honor the S Pen as the symbol of the Note series, and a key reason why the smartphones have garnered countless fans.

 

 

 

A Refined Frame

One of the first things you’ll notice when holding the Galaxy Note9 is just how nicely it sits in the hand. The smartphone’s comfortable contours are the result of a frame design that reflects thoughtful consideration for both usability and aesthetics.

 

The metal frame was forged using a cutting process known as Dia-cutting, which utilizes a fast-rotating artificial diamond tool to create smooth, glossy surfaces that accentuate design details. The process involved tapering the surfaces of the frame that blend into the device’s front and back, and carefully rounding the middle section, which comes into contact with your palm the most. The tapered parts of the frame feature a glossy finish, while the rounded middle section is matte.

 

The resulting frame is sleek and slim, and features an interplay of glossy and matte finishes that complements the Galaxy Note9’s premium design cues.

 

  • The video above illustrates the dia-cutting process, followed by the coloring procedure of the Galaxy Note9.

 

Exceptional Accessories

The Galaxy Note9’s accessories selection includes a wide range of stylish covers that offer users more ways to customize their smartphone’s aesthetic. Designed to suit a wide array of tastes, the protective covers span from fine leather to military-grade options.

 

The new Leather Wallet Cover is perhaps the most eye-catching of the bunch. Crafted from genuine calf leather, it features a handy card pocket as well as a soft microfiber lining that helps protect the Galaxy Note9 from scratches. It’s available in a choice of five colors—black, brown, red, blue and yellow—which users are encouraged to mix and match with their Galaxy Note9 to showcase their style.

 

 

Also included in the Galaxy Note9’s collection of compatible accessories is Samsung’s new Wireless Charger Duo. A combination of the Fast Charge Wireless Charging Stand and the Wireless Charging Pad, the fast-charging two-in-one allows users to quickly charge their phone alongside another Qi-compatible phone or wearable. The charger eliminates the need to fumble with cables each time you need to top up your devices’ batteries, and its built-in stand offers easy access to your phone’s screen.

 

 

*Each model’s S Pen is also available for individual sale.

**Certified MIL-STD-810G-516.7 compliant.

[Video] Hands-On: Here’s What’s New with the Galaxy Note9

These days, whether we’re connecting with friends and family, leading a conference call on the go, snapping photos, or playing a favorite mobile game, we rely on our smartphones for almost everything we do.

 

Combining fan-favorite Note features with an all-day battery, a Bluetooth Low-Energy (BLE) connected S Pen and Samsung Electronics’ most intelligent camera yet, the Galaxy Note9 raises the bar for smartphone performance and power with innovations that help users get the most out of work, play and everything in between.

 

 

A Signature Design

The premium design cues that Note users know and love have been updated for the Galaxy Note9 to foster a more comfortable and streamlined mobile experience.

 

The Galaxy Note9’s 6.4-inch Infinity Display is the largest the series has ever seen, with plenty of room to enjoy a favorite movie or game, or write, draw or play with the connected S Pen. The device’s Dia-cut metal frame looks sleek and slim, and features an interplay of glossy and non-glossy finishes that exudes a premium look. The Galaxy Note9 is available in a selection of four standout color options: Midnight Black, Metallic Copper, Ocean Blue and Lavender Purple.

 

 

A Mobile Remote Control

The Galaxy Note9’s enhanced S Pen introduces entirely new ways for users to manage their device and express their creativity.

 

 

The addition of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology has transformed the S Pen into a convenient and customizable remote control that allows you to easily manage apps and functions, including the camera, from within 10 meters of the Galaxy Note9. The PENUP-powered Live Drawing and Photo Drawing features, meanwhile, offer users simple tools to create dynamic works of art that showcase their artistic skills.

 

 

In addition to functioning as an intuitive remote control, the Galaxy Note9’s S Pen also includes support for Samsung DeX, Samsung’s powerful productivity solution. Users who connect the Galaxy Note9 to a screen via Samsung DeX will be able to utilize the S Pen to streamline a wide array of tasks, such as delivering presentations.

 

 

An Intelligent Camera

 

To make capturing the perfect picture as simple as possible, the Galaxy Note9 enhances Samsung’s industry-leading camera technologies with deep-learning capabilities that make it easy to snap stunning shots.

 

The camera’s new Flaw Detection and Scene Optimizer features utilize advanced AI to help users take the best possible picture. The former automatically notifies you of any flaws in your photos, such as blinking eyes, so you can capture another shot, while the latter automatically analyzes objects, scenery and time elements in the camera’s frame in order to recognize the type of scene you’re photographing and optimize color tones accordingly.

 

 

Premium Power and Performance

As teased before the Unpacked event, the Galaxy Note9 offers users the very best in terms of battery life, speed and storage.

 

The Galaxy Note9’s all-day, 4,000mAh battery is Samsung’s most powerful and reliable yet, and the device’s 128GB of baseline storage offers more than enough room for all of your photos, videos and apps. An industry leading cooling system provides optimal performance during graphics-intensive activities like gaming, while a 10-nanometer processor and support for mobile carriers’ fastest network speeds ensure that you’re never stuck in the slow lane when downloading or streaming your favorite content.

 

 

Even More Dynamic with Samsung DeX

 

Samsung’s powerful productivity solution, Samsung DeX, becomes even more versatile when paired with the Galaxy Note9.

 

The new, easy-to-carry HDMI Adaptor makes utilizing Samsung DeX even more convenient, creating more opportunities to enjoy a PC-like experience at the office, at home or on the go. The solution’s dual-screen support allows users to work simultaneously on the Galaxy Note9 and on a connected display, and lets you utilize the phone as touch keyboard, a touchpad, or a surface for drawing with the enhanced S Pen.

[In-Depth Look #1] A Mobile Remote Control: The Galaxy Note9’s Connected S Pen

Each new addition to the Note family introduces exciting capabilities to the smartphones’ signature feature: the S Pen. Over the years, these refinements have unlocked innovative ways for users to communicate with others and streamline work, play and everything in between.

 

The Galaxy Note9’s S Pen raises the bar with an array of convenient additions, including Bluetooth Low-Energy (BLE) connectivity, Samsung DeX compatibility, and integration with several fan-favorite Note features. Together, these enhancements offer much greater control over your mobile experience, making it easier to get the most out of everything you do.

 

 

 

Even Better with Bluetooth Low-Energy (BLE)

The S Pen has always been a boundary-pushing innovation, but adding BLE connectivity takes it to another level, literally expanding the boundaries within which you can use your S Pen to manage your device.

 

The S Pen’s connectivity allows it to serve as an intuitive remote control for your Galaxy Note9 that lets you easily manage key functions, including the device’s camera, from within 10 meters of the device. This means that when taking a selfie or a fun photo with friends, after launching the camera, rather than reaching for the shutter button (and possibly jeopardizing your carefully framed shot), you can instantly snap your pic with a click of the S Pen’s button. A double-click will switch from the front to the rear camera, and vice versa.

 

 

Other apps that support the use of the S Pen as a remote control include the Gallery app and various presentation and media-player apps1. A simple click or double-click will allow you to play/pause a song, skip to the next track or video, or view the next/previous image in an album. You can even utilize the S Pen as a convenient clicker for presenting with the Galaxy Note9 and Samsung DeX. And with its open SDK (software development kit), developers will be able to integrate the S Pen’s intuitive controls into a wide range of apps that will allow you to streamline more tasks with a simple click.

 

 

The S Pen also allows you to easily launch a favorite app or feature with a long press, regardless of the currently opened app. You can also customize clicks in the S Pen’s settings2.

 

 

BLE technology ensures that the S Pen is always ready whenever you need it, enabling the device to pair with the Galaxy Note9 as soon as it’s removed, and maintaining a stable connection even when Bluetooth is turned off. The S Pen’s Super Capacitor takes just 40 seconds to reach full charge, and offers 30 minutes of power—or up to 200 clicks.

 

Made for Multitaskers

Note users are true multitaskers who require a phone that’s as versatile as they are. That’s why Samsung enhanced the Galaxy Note9’s S Pen with Samsung DeX support: to offer users more ways to get down to work.

 

Samsung’s ultimate productivity service solution has been enhanced for the Galaxy Note9 with highly portable HDMI adapters, which users can easily plug in to a display when on the go without the need for a separate device. In addition, there’s also the dual screen support that allows you to work simultaneously on the smartphone’s display and on a connected monitor.

 

 

Connecting the Galaxy Note9 to a monitor will also allow you to utilize the device as a touch keyboard, a touch pad, or a surface for writing or drawing with the S Pen. The S Pen’s pressure-sensitive tip delivers a realistic and efficient writing experience when working on Samsung DeX, making it easy to, for instance, take notes on an interesting video that you’re watching on the monitor, or fine tune an image or illustration using your Galaxy Note9 and the Adobe software suite.

 

More Ways to Make Your Mark

Last year’s Galaxy Note8 introduced Live Message, a particularly fun feature that allows you to inject more emotion into messages by drawing your own emojis, making animated GIFs, and customizing photos with pen effects and handwritten notes.

 

The Galaxy Note9 expands Live Message’s expressive capabilities by integrating support for Samsung’s ever-emotive, user-resembling AR Emoji stickers. The S Pen adds new layers of fun to sharing AR Emoji stickers by allowing you to customize them with personalized messages, drawings and more effects, which may be shared via messaging apps.

 

 

And the fun doesn’t stop there, thanks to the new PENUP-powered Photo Drawing and Live Drawing features. The former adds a creative twist to the Gallery app, allowing you to draw over your own pics to create impressive works of art, while the latter offers video tutorials to help you fine-tune your artistic skills.

 

 

Screen off memo has also been made more dynamic, as the color of the pen’s markings now matches the color of the S pen itself—either yellow (for the Ocean Blue Galaxy Note9), light grey (for the Midnight Black model), lavender purple or metallic copper.

A Refined Design

The Galaxy Note9’s S Pen is comfortable in the hand, measuring 106 millimeters in length and weighing in at 3.1 grams. Its 0.7-millimeter tip and 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity provide impeccable precision, adding comfort and accuracy to note taking and drawing.

 

Like the Galaxy Note9 itself, the S Pen is IP68 water and dust resistant3. So wherever your day takes you, and no matter conditions, you can rest assured that it’ll be ready to work.

 

 

1Compatible apps include Camera, Gallery, Voice Recorder, Samsung Music, Samsung Video, Microsoft PowerPoint, Hancom SHOW, B162, Snow, YouTube, Snapchat and almost all music apps. Additional apps available after launch.

2App compatibility may vary.

3Water resistance rating is based on test conditions of submersion in up to 1.5 meters of fresh water for up to 30 minutes.

[In-Depth Look #2] Stellar Shots Every Time: The Galaxy Note9’s Intelligent Camera

 

The Galaxy Note9 builds on Samsung Electronics’ legacy of innovative camera technologies with an intelligent camera that takes the work out of capturing the perfect photo.

 

Brand new functions including Scene Optimizer and Flaw Detection utilize artificial intelligence to help users get the most out of the device’s advanced camera. Together, this powerful combination of smarts and specs makes it easier than ever to snap stunning shots.

 

Optimal Color Every Time

Picture this: When catching a sunset during your vacation, you snap a pic with your phone only to find that the image on the screen hasn’t quite captured the majesty of the moment. The Galaxy Note9’s new Scene Optimizer function makes it easy to photograph breathtaking moments just like this by automatically optimizing camera settings to capture the full beauty of the scene.

 

Scene Optimizer utilizes deep-learning technology to analyze objects, scenery and time elements in the camera’s frame in order to identify exactly which type of scene you’re about to photograph. The function is currently capable of recognizing 20 types of scenes—including ‘Food’, ‘Flowers’, ‘Indoor scenes’ and ‘Landscapes’— and automatically adjusts the color tone based on how the scene is classified1.

 

 

 

The function corrects the saturation, white balance, brightness and contrast in order to provide the best possible image. And because it does not require a network connection, it’s always available to help make your photos look great.

 

Snap Flawless Photos

Even the best photos can be spoiled by a simple blink, a blur, a smudge on the lens, or by harsh, overpowering light behind the picture’s subject. That’s where the Galaxy Note9’s Flaw Detection function comes in. Once a photo has been snapped, the feature automatically scans it for flaws and notifies you if any are found2.

 

 

The function helps users capture and save more memorable moments by ensuring that the picture they take is the best possible shot. Say you’re enjoying a special evening with friends and decide to immortalize it with a fun photo. Rather than realizing later that your eyes were closed, with Flaw Detection you’ll be immediately informed of any flaws in your photo so you can capture the memory with an additional shot.

 

 

Crisp Images In Any Lighting

Whether we’re at a restaurant, a concert, or simply enjoying a balmy evening under the summer sky, we’re constantly snapping photos in low-light environments. That’s why Samsung outfitted the Galaxy Note9’s camera with an array of innovative technologies that allow it to produce stunning shots day or night.

 

 

Combining an F2.4 aperture lens with an F1.5, the brightest currently available on a smartphone, the Dual Aperture lens automatically adjusts to light just like the human eye, letting in more light when it’s dark and less when it’s bright to produce images that are crisp and clear.

 

The Galaxy Note9’s multi-frame processing technology adds further clarity to photos taken under less-than-ideal lighting conditions. This technology, which combines several photos into one to create an optimal image, allows the camera to provide better HDR at night, and enriches the Live Focus feature with improved brightness and noise when taking pictures in low-light environments.

 

Capture More Moments In Epic Detail

The Galaxy Note9’s camera also includes support for Samsung’s recently introduced Super Slow-mo function, which ramps the camera’s shutter speed up to 960 frames per second to allow users to record spectacular slow-mo videos.

 

Four times slower than traditional slow-motion video, Super Slow-mo is powered by the camera’s Super Speed Dual Pixel image sensor, which supports much faster image processing thanks in part to its integrated DRAM memory chip. The feature also includes an automatic Motion Detection function that instantly starts recording as soon as it detects movement.

The Galaxy Note9 allows users to transform 0.4 seconds of footage into approximately 12 seconds of Super Slow-mo video when taken in single shot mode3. Once a video is recorded, the feature automatically adds appropriate background music that makes the recorded moment even more epic.

 

 

More Customizable AR Emoji

The Galaxy Note9 is absolutely packed with innovations that empower users’ creativity and self-expression, and the camera’s refined AR Emoji feature is one of the most dynamic examples of this.

 

Capable of mimicking users’ movements in addition to supporting dozens of pre-set expressions, AR Emoji stickers offer a fun way to express yourself and inject personality into messages. The Galaxy Note9 analyzes your distinct facial features to generate a 3D avatar that matches your appearance.

 

 

The feature, whose face-tracking function was recently enriched with more landmark detector points, has been enhanced for the Galaxy Note9 with an array of customization options that make it easier for AR Emojis to copy your distinct style. With loads of new outfits and accessories to choose from, as well as the ability to fine-tune details like your hair style, skin tone and facial features, the opportunities for expression are endless.

 

Galaxy Note9 users will also be able to customize the backgrounds of their stickers with an array of new options, and enjoy access to Samsung and partners like Disney’s ever-growing roster of AR Emojis based on iconic cartoon characters—a roster that’s set to become even more fun and diverse with the feature’s open SDK (software development kit).

 

 

1Accuracy may differ by settings and surrounding conditions.

2Accuracy of Flaw Detection function may differ depending on surrounding conditions or subject. Blink detection works within 1.5 meters and a maximum of 3 people are detectable at the same time. Blur detection feature senses when the camera shakes, and recognizes face blur in the photo.

3Video is initially recorded at 480fps and digitally converted into 960fps footage.

[In-Depth Look #3] The Power to Do More: The Galaxy Note9’s High-Performance Features

The Galaxy Note9 introduces exciting enhancements to the same great collection of high-performance Galaxy features that have, over the last few years, redefined the mobile experience.

 

Featuring an all-day battery, expanded storage, fast processing and network speeds, and Samsung Electronics’ latest advancements in cooling technologies, the newest addition to the Note lineup has been engineered to offer the highest levels of power and performance.

 

 

 

All-Day Performance

A phone designed for power users requires a likewise powerful battery. That’s why Samsung equipped the Galaxy Note9 with an all-day1, 4,000mAh battery—the largest ever featured on a flagship Galaxy device. Offering 21 percent more power than the Galaxy Note8’s 3,300mAh unit, the powerhouse battery allows you to spend more time being productive and less time tied down by chargers and power packs.

 

 

The fast-charging, wireless-capable battery is not only the most powerful that the Galaxy family has ever seen; it’s also the most reliable. That’s because its power and performance are backed by Samsung’s 8-Point Battery Safety Check—the most rigorous in the industry—and have also been validated by the experts at UL (Underwriters Laboratories) and Exponent.

 

So you can rest assured that from morning meetings to meet-ups with friends, and whatever else you have planned for your day, your Galaxy Note9 will be ready to help you get things done and enjoy each day to the fullest.

 

 

Save More, Delete Less

Samsung designed the Galaxy Note9 with a belief that not only should you not need to plan your day around our smartphone’s battery life, you shouldn’t need to delete your favorite photos, files and apps to make room for more either.

 

To offer users more freedom to create and store dynamic content, the Galaxy Note9 comes with a default base storage of 128GB, including 6GB of RAM, and is also available in a 512GB model with 8GB of RAM2. The latter opens the door for over one terabyte of storage via microSD card3.

 

 

Just how much dynamic content can the Galaxy Note9 hold? The 128GB model offers enough space for approximately 545 full HD (FHD) videos, or over 22,000 images, while the 512GB version features room for some 2,315 FHD videos, or over 93,000 images4. The smartphone’s combination of ample storage and microSD support means that users will likely never need to erase old content to make room for more apps, files, or stunning photos or videos captured with its innovative camera.

 

Built for the Fast Lane

Like storage space, a phone’s processing speeds and network capabilities can directly impact users’ ability to get the most out of a given day.

 

To offer users superior speed, the Galaxy Note9 comes equipped with a 10-nanometer processor that, in addition to boosting CPU and GPU performance by 33 and 23 percent, respectively5, supports the fastest network speeds available, with downloads of up to 1.2 gigabits per second (Gbps)6.

 

The Galaxy Note9’s connections ensure that you’re never stuck in the slow lane when downloading or streaming your favorite content.

 

 

Cool Under Pressure

The Galaxy Note9’s combination of premium power and performance is made possible, in part, thanks to its Water Carbon Cooling system, which allows the phone to run smoothly during heavy use.

 

Samsung’s cooling system counteracts heat with a heat pipe, or ‘thermal spreader’, that ensures that the processor functions at optimal levels. The system, which was first introduced in the Galaxy S7, utilizes changes in the phases of water to efficiently radiate heat. First, a porous structure filled with water absorbs the heat, then the water is turned into steam and moved through pipes. The steam then begins to cool and turns back into water and the process begins again, dispelling more heat with each subsequent cycle.

 

 

To help ensure that the Galaxy Note9 remains cool under pressure, Samsung equipped the device with a heat pipe that’s three times larger than the Galaxy Note8’s, and increased the system’s internal water intake to allow for greater heat absorption. The system also benefits from an enhanced carbon fiber TIM (thermal interface material) that transfers heat from the processor to the thermal spreader with 3.5 times greater efficiency, boosts thermal conductivity, and helps prevent overheating.

 

The Galaxy Note9 also features an on-device AI-based, performance-adjusting algorithm that provides up to 40 percent more stable FPS (frames per second) when gaming. This allows the smartphone to provide smoother visuals and a more enjoyable experience when playing top games like “Fortnite”.

 

 

In an action-packed game like “Fortnite”, FPS drops can mean the difference between life and death. Timing and accuracy are everything, and unstable FPS can hinder your ability to anticipate an attack, and can cause a carefully aimed shot to hit just off the mark. The Galaxy Note9’s smooth and stable gameplay makes it easier to immerse yourself in the on-screen action, offering a competitive edge in your quest to become the last player standing.

They need a phone that won’t let them down and Galaxy Note9 delivers.

 

  • All Day Battery: Galaxy Note9’s 4,000mAh battery, the largest ever on a flagship Galaxy phone for long-lasting power to use all-day to talk, text, play games and watch movies from morning to night.

 

  • Store More, Delete Less: Galaxy Note9 is available with two internal storage options – choose from 128GB or 512GB. And with the ability to insert a microSD card, Galaxy Note9 is 1TB ready1 to have peace of mind knowing there is enough room for favorite photos, videos and apps.

 

  • Speed and Power: Galaxy Note9 is a super powerful smartphone with cutting-edge 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. Galaxy Note9 also 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 Evolution of the S Pen

The S Pen is the signature feature of the Note series – it’s how users have made their mark, and how Samsung has expanded the notion of what a smartphone can do. What began as a tool for writing and drawing is now putting more power and control in their hands.

 

Now with Bluetooth Low-Energy (BLE) support, 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. Developers can even integrate the S Pen’s new, advanced BLE functionalities into their apps later this year.

 

The Intelligent Camera That Makes Pictures Perfect

It can be hard to take a picture that looks just like the ones the pros take – but it shouldn’t be. Galaxy Note9 builds on Samsung’s industry-leading camera technologies with new capabilities that take the work out of getting the perfect picture.

 

  • Scene Optimizer: Galaxy Note9’s camera is Samsung’s smartest yet. It uses intelligence to identify elements of a photo, such as scene and subject, to automatically classify it into one of 20 categories and instantly optimize it based on the category. The result is a stunning, lifelike image with bold colors and dynamic definition.

 

  • Flaw Detection: The first shot doesn’t always come out right, but the Galaxy Note9 lets users know if there’s something wrong, so they can take another picture without losing the moment. An immediate notification will appear if the image is blurry, the subject blinked, there is a smudge on the lens, or there’s backlight impacting the quality of the image.

 

  • Premium Camera: With the unique combination of advanced intelligence features and leading premium hardware, Galaxy Note9’s camera is the best on the market. It comes with advanced noise reduction technology, and a Dual Aperture2 lens, which adjusts to light just like the human eye. No matter the lighting conditions, Galaxy Note9’s top-tier camera delivers a crystal-clear shot.

 

 

Premium Experiences: From Work to Play

The Infinity Display is the cornerstone of Samsung’s design heritage, and Galaxy Note9 has the largest edge-to-edge display ever on a Note. The 6.4-inch Super AMOLED Infinity Display provides a truly immersive multimedia experience. Galaxy Note9’s Infinity Display is complemented by stereo speakers, which are tuned by AKG, and ability to deliver Dolby Atmos® immersive audio for a life like experience. Mobile video has never looked or sounded better than it does on Galaxy Note9. YouTube named Galaxy Note9 as a Signature Device able to deliver a best-in-class YouTube experience.

 

Galaxy Note9 also delivers a PC-like experience with Samsung DeX. Users can work on presentations, edit photos, and watch their favorite show all powered by their phone. Experience Samsung DeX with easy-to-carry HDMI adapters3. When connected to a monitor, Galaxy Note9 can power a virtualized desktop and even serve as a fully-functional second screen. Take notes with the S Pen while watching a video, or use Galaxy Note9 as a trackpad, to right-click, drag and drop, and use multiple windows on a monitor. It’s never been easier to be more productive.

 

Galaxy and Beyond

The premium Galaxy technologies come standard with Note9: fast wireless charging, IP68 water and dust resistance4 and Samsung services such as Samsung Health and Samsung Pay. Galaxy Note9 features Samsung’s trusted, defense-grade Knox security platform and biometric security options including fingerprint scanning, iris scanning and facial recognition capabilities to keep important information safe.

 

Galaxy Note9 opens up a world of possibilities – it’s a portal to the full Samsung ecosystem of devices and services. For instance, use Galaxy Note9 and SmartThings to control connected devices, or get more done with Bixby5, a personalized, intelligent assistant. And with the launch of Galaxy Note9, Samsung is making it easier to enjoy music with a new long-term partner, Spotify6. The partnership makes Spotify easily accessible to seamlessly sync and transfer music, playlists and podcasts across Galaxy Note9, Galaxy Watch and Smart TV products.

 

Galaxy Note9 will be available starting August 24, 2018 in select markets and will be offered in Midnight Black, Lavender Purple, Metallic Copper with matching S Pen, and Ocean Blue with a Yellow S Pen.
