The new Sam­sung Galaxy Note 9

SmartHouse - - FRONT PAGE - Writ­ten by DAVID RICHARDS

It’s got bru­tal power, more than any other smart­phone has ever had, a yel­low S pen and it now comes in metalic cop­per, the all new Sam­sung Gal­axy Note 9 has been re­vealed in New York and it’s ex­pen­sive so what do you get for your money?

A big dif­fer­ence with this de­vice apart from the yel­low S Pen, is that the new pro­ces­sor and AI tech­nol­ogy has helped re­duce the drag on the bat­tery, with Sam­sung now claim­ing that it can de­liver one full day of bat­tery due to a com­bi­na­tion of quicker power pro­cess­ing and the in­tro­duc­tion of a 4,000mAh bat­tery, the largest ever on a flag­ship smart­phone.

Sam­sung has also cranked up the stor­age ca­pa­bil­ity of the Note 9 of­fer­ing two op­tions in­ter­nal stor­age op­tions of 128GB or 512GB. The RRP is $1,499 for the 128GB model and $1,799 for the 512GB model.

There is also the abil­ity to insert a 1TB mi­croSD card.

The new speed and power are pos­si­ble with the in­tro­duc­tion of a new cut­ting-edge 10nm pro­ces­sor that sup­port fast net­work speeds of up to 1.2 gi­ga­bits per sec­ond this tech­nol­ogy al­lows own­ers to stream and down­load with­out slow­ing down the over­all per­for­mance of the de­vice.

Im­proved speeds equal heat and to keep this beast cool Sam­sung is in­tro­duc­ing a Wa­ter Car­bon Cool­ing sys­tem and on-de­vice AIbased per­for­mance al­go­rithm that’s de­signed to de­liver both pow­er­ful and sta­ble per­for­mance.

“The Note has al­ways been our show­case for pre­mium tech­nol­ogy and in­dus­try-defin­ing in­no­va­tion, and Gal­axy Note9 is no ex­cep­tion. It’s de­signed for a level of per­for­mance, power and in­tel­li­gence that to­day’s power users want and need,” said DJ Koh, Pres­i­dent and CEO of IT & Mo­bile Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Di­vi­sion, Sam­sung Elec­tron­ics.

“Note fans are Sam­sung’s most loyal; we know they want it all, to get the most out of work and play, and Gal­axy Note9 is the only phone that can keep up with their busy lives.” he said.

Lo­cally Garry McGre­gor, Vice Pres­i­dent, Mo­bile Di­vi­sion, Sam­sung Elec­tron­ics Aus­tralia, said: “The Gal­axy Note9 sets a new bench­mark for what Aus­tralians should ex­pect from a pre­mium smart­phone. It is built on years of in­no­va­tion, re­fine­ment, and lis­ten­ing to our cus­tomers to de­liver the fea­tures they need so they can achieve more in their day.

“Our Gal­axy Note cus­tomers are among our most loyal and en­thu­si­as­tic sup­port­ers. Each year this smart­phone show­cases our lat­est in­no­va­tions, which is why Note fans con­tinue to stay ded­i­cated to this de­vice.

The big point of dif­fer­ence with any Sam­sung Not smart­phone is the in­cor­po­ra­tion of the S Pen it’s be­come a favourite of among power users.

The sig­na­ture fea­ture of the Note smart­phone its how users have made their mark, and how Sam­sung has ex­panded the no­tion of what a smart­phone can do. What be­gan as a tool for writ­ing and draw­ing is now put­ting more power and con­trol in their hands claim Sam­sung.

Now with Blue­tooth Low-En­ergy (BLE) sup­port, the new S Pen de­liv­ers an en­tirely new way to use the Note.

With just a click, it’s now pos­si­ble to take self­ies and group pic­tures, present slides, pause and play video, and more. De­vel­op­ers can even in­te­grate the S Pen’s new, ad­vanced BLE func­tion­al­i­ties into their apps later this year.

An­other big dif­fer­ence with a pre­mium Not smart­phone has al­ways been the cam­era.

The new Gal­axy Note9 builds on Sam­sung’s strength in de­vel­op­ing cam­era tech­nol­ogy for smart­phones, with new ca­pa­bil­i­ties that take the work out of get­ting the per­fect pic­ture.

Scene Op­ti­mizer: It uses in­tel­li­gence to iden­tify el­e­ments of a photo, such as scene and sub­ject, to au­to­mat­i­cally clas­sify it into one of 20 cat­e­gories and in­stantly op­ti­mize it based on the cat­e­gory. The re­sult is a stun­ning, life­like im­age with bold colours and dy­namic def­i­ni­tion.

Flaw De­tec­tion: The first shot doesn’t al­ways come out right, but the Gal­axy Note9 lets users know if there’s some­thing wrong, so they can take an­other pic­ture with­out los­ing the mo­ment. An im­me­di­ate no­ti­fi­ca­tion will ap­pear if the im­age is blurry, the sub­ject blinked, there is a smudge on the lens, or there’s back­light im­pact­ing the qual­ity of the im­age.

Pre­mium Cam­era: With the unique com­bi­na­tion of ad­vanced in­tel­li­gence fea­tures and lead­ing pre­mium hard­ware, Gal­axy Note9’s cam­era is the best on the mar­ket. It comes with ad­vanced noise re­duc­tion tech­nol­ogy, and a Dual Aper­ture2 lens, which ad­justs to light just like the hu­man eye. No mat­ter the light­ing con­di­tions, Gal­axy Note9’s top-tier cam­era de­liv­ers a crys­tal-clear shot. The Dual Aper­ture sup­ports F1.5 mode and F2.4 mode. Dual Aper­ture is in­stalled on the rear wide-cam­era.

An­other plus with any Gal­axy Note is the dis­play screen. Even Ap­ple buys their dis­play screens from Sam­sung.

The new In­fin­ity dis­play is the cor­ner­stone of Sam­sung’s de­sign her­itage, and Gal­axy Note9 has the largest edge-toedge dis­play ever on a Note.

The 6.4-inch Su­per AMOLED In­fin­ity Dis­play de­liv­ers an “im­mer­sive mul­ti­me­dia ex­pe­ri­ence” claims Sam­sung.

Un­der the bonnet are new stereo speak­ers, which are tuned by AKG, and can de­liver Dolby At­mos im­mer­sive au­dio for a life like ex­pe­ri­ence.

Stan­dard with Note9 is: fast wire­less charg­ing, IP68 wa­ter and dust re­sis­tance4 and Sam­sung ser­vices such as Sam­sung Health and Sam­sung Pay. Gal­axy Note9 fea­tures Sam­sung’s trusted, de­fence­grade Knox se­cu­rity plat­form and bio­met­ric se­cu­rity op­tions in­clud­ing fin­ger­print scan­ning, iris scan­ning and fa­cial recog­ni­tion ca­pa­bil­i­ties to keep im­por­tant in­for­ma­tion safe.

Sam­sung’s Gal­axy Note9 is set to re­lease in Aus­tralia on Au­gust 24, 2018.
