The Note is back: Samsung launches Galaxy Note 9 now with a more powerful S Pen

Samsung officially launches the Galaxy Note9, its newest flagship smartphone from the Galaxy Note Series, carrying the brand’s signature innovations through its core features.

Connected Bluetooth S Pen

The defining and well-loved feature of the Note series opens more possibilities for the smartphone. Now powered with Bluetooth, the Connected S Pen enables wireless control over the Galaxy Note9 within a 10-meter radius that can be used for business pitches, activate applications, and browse through photos with just a few clicks. The functions can also be customized depending on the user’s needs.

The Connected S Pen pairs instantly with its Galaxy Note9 counterpart, eliminating the need to switch on the Bluetooth. It lasts for around 200 clicks or 30 minutes of continued usage. It also automatically charges once placed inside the device, requiring only 40 seconds to reach full power.


The Galaxy Note9 showcases upgraded battery life, speed, and internal storage. It is easier to accomplish more in a day with the smartphone’s long-lasting 4,000 mAh battery which lasts for up to 24 hours on standby. It also supports fast and wireless charging.

Multitaskers can send emails, edit presentations, and stream content without lagging, as the device operates on a 10-nanometer Application Processor. The tiny chipset allows the Galaxy Note9 to offer seamless performance while reducing battery consumption. Users can experience faster loading and transition times within multiple applications.

The Galaxy Note9 is the first smartphone to start with a base capacity of 128GB, and it also comes with a 512GB variant. Both support expandable memory and utilize Samsung Knox, the company’s mobile security platform, to keep important documents and large files secure anytime, anywhere.

Dual camera

The Dual Aperture Camera now has F1.5 and F2.4 lens aperture. The intelligent camera of the Galaxy Note9 can capture Super Slow-Mo videos at 960 frames per second, which is four times slower than normal slow motion.

Now equipped with Real Time Intelligence, the camera can provide more information about objects in its field of vision. With Auto Scene Recognition, it can detect up to twenty unique scenes and automatically optimize the photo, depending on the conditions. It can also report flaws, allowing users to snap professional-looking shots.

Standout features

With the biggest screen among all Samsung smartphones, the Galaxy Note9 provides the best viewing experience with its 6.4” Super AMOLED Infinity Display. The device also sports a sleek square design with diamond cuts at the edges. Available in Ocean Blue with a Pearl Yellow S Pen (128GB & 512GB), Midnight Black, (128GB), and Metallic Copper (128GB), the Galaxy Note9 champions sophisticated and elegant design.
