Can Galaxy Note 9 Restore Samsung's Smartphone Business?

Samsung launches the Galaxy Note9 with 6.4-inch screen

Despite the slightly larger screen, too, the Note 9 is actually 0.6mm shorter than the Note 8 thanks to the even slimmer bezels. It's an evolution of the Galaxy Note 8 but one with some notable upgrades.

Like many other recent Samsung Galaxy flagships, the Note 9 may also come with a new Exynos chip (the Exynos 9810, in this case) but only for EMEA markets. And if you then walk into a kitchen in which you have the new Samsung Galaxy Home smart speaker, that can then continue the track instead. Apparently the S-Pen button is restricted to first party apps and select partners at launch, but more stuff is apparently on the way in the form of a public SDK for app developers.

Samsung poured all its resources into the Galaxy Note 9 after disappointing sales of the Galaxy S9 in the first half of this year led to smartphone sales dropping by eight million compared to the same period of 2017 and its global market share fell 1.7 percentage points.

These include an adaptive fast charger, eartips for the earphones, two USB-C adapters, a USB cable and AKG branded earphones.

Samsung has just launched the latest Galaxy Note smartphone. With the Note 9, Samsung has added Bluetooth functionality to the S Pen. Buying the Note 9 through Paytm Mall will fetch you INR 6,000 cashback as well.

Remove them and the phablet sits comfortably at the bottom of the package. The most important internal change is Samsung's new 4,000mAh battery - the Note 8 has a 3,300mAh cell.

"One thing is sure that Note 9 has removed the aspect of a 64GB entry variant in the premium segment". We'll find out soon enough.

The trademark feature of the Note series is the S Pen stylus.

Samsung also announced a new smartwatch and a partnership with Spotify meant to make it easier to switch music playback between phones, TVs and the company's new speaker.

The Note series has always had a good camera, and it looks like the Note 9 will be no exception to that rule.

In a separate statement, telecom operator Bharti Airtel said the Note 9 (128 GB) will be available through its online store. If you need even more space for multitasking prowess, there will also be a 512GB storage/8GB RAM option.

The Note 9 makes use of a rear dual aperture camera - which adjusts how much light gets in - in a similar manner to the S9. And the 9 has niche pricing to match: the "cheaper" of the two Note 9 configurations (128GB flash, 6GB RAM) sets you back $999, the 512GB flash, 8GB RAM version $1,250.
