Samsung Galaxy Note 9 launch event has finally started with Samsung Mobile President DJ Koh on stage to bring the latest smartphone with a large screen with S Pen support. Samsung says the Galaxy Note 9 smartphone it once made has confirmed it will have a 6.4-inch display, rumored to be around. The fingerprint scanner is placed under the camera so that it is easier to reach. It comes in four colors – Midnight Black, Metallic Copper, Ocean Blue, Lavender Purple.
Samsung says that Galaxy Note 9 will also have a battery life of one day, with the battery capacity the highest ever for the Note series. It comes in two storage variants – 128 GB of internal storage for the basic version and 512 GB of built-in storage for the more expensive version, with support for a 512 GB microSD card. The smartphone supports download speeds of up to 1.2 Gbps. As rumored, the release date of Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is August 24.
Samsung Galaxy Note 9 camera offers improved lowlight imaging and super slo-mo models. The S Pen allows users to take photos at the touch of a button, making it easier for users to take pictures without a timer or accessories. It also uses Bluetooth LE for additional functions, such as playing/pausing YouTube videos. The S Pen SDK will soon be available for developers to make more use of the stylus; the device takes one minute to charge fully and delivers a 30-minute charge – the standard S Pen functions work even without any costs.
Bixby also gets an upgrade with Galaxy Note 9, and will be more “conversational and useful.” The demo showed that it could work under context and remembers conversations to deliver results for user questions. The Samsung AI will work with some new services such as Google Maps, Yelp, and Uber, among others. Bixby will also power Galaxy Home, Samsung’s competitor, against Amazon Echo, Google Home, and Apple HomePod.
Natural sound processing and deep bass are central to the new smart speakers, which will also integrate the company’s Smart Things Hub. It has 8 microphones for far-field voice recognition and can send the sound to the user when they hear their voice, just like the HomePod. The new device has a Spotify integration and allows users to play with the Galaxy Home at the touch of the button on their phone. Spotify is available on Samsung TVs, telephones and speakers and is part of the installation for these devices.
