Although when you consider the iPhone X and iPhone 8 Plus allowed us to play Fortnite at Epic preset, it was disappointing that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 isn't afforded this luxury given that it fits in a similar price bracket.
Now official Note 9 marketing material has been obtained by Winfuture.de and two of the slides are touting the capabilities of the handset's upgraded camera. The S Pen on the Galaxy Note 9 supports Bluetooth Low Energy to let you use it as a remote control for things like taking a photo, playing or pausing a song or video, or launch your favorite app with a long press. The 512GB storage, 8GB RAM variant of the Galaxy Note 9 will be available at Samsung.com, AT&T, Verizon, US Cellular, and T-Mobile on the 24th of August.
The strap colors for this model are black, grey, red yellow, purple, beige or brown, plus you can use other 22mm straps if you don't fancy the colors directly from Samsung.
Perhaps the thing that caught my attention most was price, where the entry level 128 GB storage / 6 GB RAM (memory) starts at $1,000 in the USA, where a more expensive version costs you $1,250 for 512 GB and 8 GB, respectively. The 512 GB Galaxy Note 9 with 8 GB of RAM will cost $1,300. The dual-camera setup is still placed horizontally and it comes with a fingerprint sensor mounted right below it. Users can install the game in the Samsung Game Launcher app.
Samsung announced the Galaxy Note 9 smartphone on Thursday during an event in Brooklyn, New York. "My worry is that the Note 9 may meet the same fate". This is the oft-discussed Bixby speaker that has been the subject of plenty of rumors since Bixby first arrived on the scene, and it looks like it's finally happening. Hopefully it's then we'll hear about pricing and release information, so stay tuned.
Samsung makes some of the best displays in the market, so it's really expected for the Note 9 to have such a great-looking screen.
The S Pen is always an important aspect of the Note series and invariably gets more features in each iteration.
The Note 9 is also one of the first phones to have a 512GB option. The Copper color option might not be available to USA markets.
There is heart rate monitoring and the Watch is water resistant. It also has eight far-field microphones for use with the assistant. It's also tying its Watch more closely to its Galaxy line, contrasting with the Gear line.
But, Samsung remained tight-lipped on most of the details.
