Samsung Galaxy Note9 is up for pre-order in India


Samsung revealed the Galaxy Note 9, its latest answer to Apple's iPhone X, at a special event in NY last night.

Well we kinda knew this already when Samsung leaked its own watch on its own website a couple of weeks back.

Samsung Electronics Co Ltd launched the Galaxy Note 9 "phablet" in NY on Thursday, promising better battery life and quick cooling to attract gamers and revive flagging sales.

Geekbench 4 measures overall performance.

The 6.4-inch Note 9 comes in four colours and two variants - 6GB RAM and 128GB in-built internal memory (expandable up to 512GB) and 8GB RAM with 512GB ROM that can be expandable up to 1TB with an additional 512GB microSD card - a delight for the gamers and heavy-duty users.

Samsung has come up with many launch offers to sweeten the deal for Note customers.

You might love the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 wallpapers, but aren't ready to spend $1,000 to experience them. We went hands-on with the device and we'll have plenty more coverage on it. It has improved battery life over previous Samsung watch models, and will be compatible with a new charger that can simultaneously charge smartphones and the watch.

Given that the device we used was fresh off the boat from Samsung HQ, it was blazingly fast - whether or not it stays that way after a year or so of daily use remains to be seen.

While the big-screened smartphone (6.4in, to be precise) looks near identical to its Note 8 predecessor with its edge-to-edge display and glossy IP68-certified chassis, Samsung is touting a number of upgrades. You can plug it into an external monitor and make it into a desktop computer (though, in my opinion, a really crappy one).

Epic Games will start rolling out access to players not using Samsung phones in the next few days.

The trademark feature of the Note series is the S Pen stylus. The only real sacrifice is in your wallet since it costs around $1,000.

If you're happy enough with the base model, the perhaps it's best not to interrogate the larger capacity version. The Galaxy Watch will also be much better at keeping tabs on your sleeping habits, but as you might imagine, this would imply you'd want sleep with your smartwatch on. If you need even more space for multitasking prowess, there will also be a 512GB storage/8GB RAM option.

Samsung accidentally spilled the beans on the Watch late last month with a store listing.

Of course, if you just want a powerhouse (something you could use as a work phone, for example) then the Note 9 has you covered.
