What’s New With The Galaxy Note 9?

Following a slew of leaks and media hype, Samsung has officially pulled back the curtain and unveiled its new Galaxy Note 9 – its most “powerful” and expensive smartphone to date [A$1,799/512GB].

Despite a close resemblance to the predecessing Note 8, the Korean giant claims the Note 9 packs a slew of new features – e.g. “all-day” battery life, plus its largest phone screen and “most intelligent” camera yet.

As such, here’s a quick round-up of several new features within the Galaxy Note 9, ahead of its August 24th release:


Samsung asserts the new Note 9 features its largest display screen yet, featuring a 6.4-inch Infinity Display, ensconced in a Dia-cut metal frame.

Globally, the device is available in four colours – Midnight Black, Ocean Blue, Metallic Copper and Lavender Purple – with most Australian carriers offering the first two.

S Pen

The new S Pen [stylus] deploys new connectivity features, incorporating Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology to behave like a remote control.

The new stylus also offers better interaction with Samsung’s DeX, thereby enhancing functionality for work/office presentations.


The Note 9 claims to further Samsung’s mobile camera capabilities, deploying new deep-learning technology to enhance image capture.

Samsung asserts new a ‘Flaw Detection’ and ‘Scene Optimizer’ reduces the tendency to capture ‘poor’ images, automatically adjusting the camera’s frame for optimal image quality.

Processing Power

Following a teaser video, Samsung claims the Note 9 features its most powerful mobile processor yet – capable of supporting high-intensity gaming such as Epic Games’ Fortnite.

The Note 9 aims to be Samsung’s most robust mobile phone yet, with 4,000mAh battery, advanced cooling-system, and 10-nanometer processor to maintain fast network speeds.

The base model incorporates 128GB storage, with most local carriers offering free upgrade to the 512GB variant.
