Samsung launched the Note 9 at 11 a.m.in NY on Thursday, or Friday midnight in Seoul.
We now have a list of hardware requirements that devices must meet.
When you pick up the Galaxy Note9, it feels familiar and that's not necessarily a bad thing. Well, you can use it to remotely trigger the camera, play and pause videos, and change slides in Powerpoint. Just like last year's model, the device includes a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED 1440p display, that's almost bezel-less on the sides. "The Note announcements have always been a more significant step in technology evolution compared with [this device]".
The Galaxy Note 8 also has a dual-lens camera, but there's no variable aperture here.
Unlike the Note8 where the camera module is black for all colours, the Note9's dual-camera module now comes in body-matching colours.
So what about the lead gimmick being pushed by the Note 9 this year, its brand new S Pen digital stylus?

The world mourned the loss of chef, celebrity chef, Anthony Bourdain and fashion designer, Kate Spade this past summer as well. And she was known for her work as a mental-wellness advocate, in part because of her own struggles with mental health.
"We're intimately familiar with these costs from our experience operating Fortnite as a direct-to-customer service on PC and Mac", he added. According to Samsung, charging the new S Pen for only 40 seconds is enough to return up to 30 minutes of usage or 200 button clicks.
You can actually control the camera with the S Pen, as the Pen now supports Bluetooth. Samsung is also making this "remote control" feature available for third-party developers via an Open SDK.
DJ Koh, Samsung's Mobile Communications Division President and CEO, holds up the new Samsung Galaxy Note 9 during a product launch event in Brooklyn, New York, U.S., August 8, 2018. This time around, Samsung says the Galaxy Watch will be able to record more accurate heart rate data, thanks to its four photodiode sensors. All you need is an HDMI adapter to plug from the phone to a monitor. Also included are a USB-C port, stereo speakers, wireless charging, a headphone jack (woo!), NFC, Samsung Pay MST, and the same face-scanning setup the Note line has had for some time.
Nonetheless, Samsung also mentioned that the Note 9 has better low light camera performance now, especially in Live Focus mode. The phone will feature a 6.4-inch QHD Super AMOLED display, Snapdragon 845 processor, 6GB or 8GB RAM, 128GB or 512GB storage (with SD slot), 4000mAh battery, dual rear cameras with all the OIS you can handle, and Android 8.1 under their Samsung Experience skin.
Samsung touts an "all-day battery", the largest ever on a Note. This is the largest yet on a Samsung flagship and it's 700mAh more than the Galaxy Note8 and 500mAh more than the Galaxy S9+. Meanwhile, the official Fortnite website has been updated to confirm that it's not only Samsung devices that will get access to Fortnite.
