Samsung smartphone models continue to rise!

The Note 9 is three devices in one.

Samsung continues to raise the smart phone bar whenever it releases a new model, and it has done so again with the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. It’s more than a phone, tablet or even a phablet! It’s a phone and a tablet that easily transforms into a portable computer, allowing the user to do so much more. With a re-imagined camera and the largest Infinity Display yet, the Samsung Note 9 is set to be a huge seller. And Samsung fans will love it.  

The pen that helps you do more than ever

The S Pen has been a Samsung standout since it was first introduced. The Note 9 version boasts powerful Bluetooth technology that lets the user control the camera, play and pause You Tube videos, and control power point presentations – all without touching the phone. Anybody who has used an S Pen knows how intuitive they are. Draw, take notes and send Live Messages as if you are using a normal pen and paper. The fine tip and true-to-life pressure sensitivity make it even easier to use, and battery life isn’t an issue ­– it charges in about one minute.

Big tech and big storage

The Samsung Note 9 features some of the best technology available. This device has space galore with 512GB storage and a MicroSD card slot that can handle an extra 400GB if needed. Photos and your videos can be stored where they can be easily accessed all the time, especially with the 400mAh battery, the largest ever in a Note device. The Note 9 also has super-fast downloads. Whether it’s gaming, streaming or multitasking, the 10nm processors and 8GB of RAM deliver a consistently high-level of performance.  

Leave your computer behind

An impressive first for the Samsung Note 9 is the DeX accessory which allows users to connect via a USB-C to HDMI cable to an external screen or monitor, and still use all the apps, review documents and watch videos as if they are on a PC. The DeX allows any space to be turned into a workspace or entertainment hub.

A great camera on a huge screen

For the Note 9, Samsung has created a camera that takes stunning photos, day and night. The dual-aperture lens adapts intelligently, measuring the surrounding light just like the eye does. The two f-stop modes brighten shots in low light and make daylight photos sing. The scene optimiser on the rear camera delivers true-to-life colours with every shot, intelligently detecting what the user wants to photograph, and adapting its settings. It chooses from 20 different modes to guarantee the best photos possible. And the Galaxy Note 9 Flaw Detection eradicates closed eyes and blurry bits, and lets you know if the backlight is too bright. All this is done on the 6.4’’ Infinity Display, the largest yet, with Quad HD+ resolution.

Finally, the international standard IP68 rating means the Samsung Note 9 can withstand dust, dirt and sand, and is resistant to submersion up to a maximum depth of 1.5m underwater for up to 30 minutes. And if you think that is amazing, just look at the colours.
