Save for some little modifications, the Note 9 isn’t much different from its predecessor in terms of design and body form.

The newly launched Galaxy Note 9 has almost the same dimension as the Galaxy Note 8 but a little bit heavier; owing to the buffed up battery capacity of the new flagship. A Corning Gorilla Glass 5 covering is on the device’s front and rear.

About the rear, the fingerprint sensor has been repositioned to prevent finger-smearing the dual camera sensors when trying to unlock the device.

The Galaxy Note 9 has a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED always-on display with a resolution of 1440 x 2960 pixels. The screen size is 0.1-inch bigger than the Note 8. This means the Note 9 now houses the biggest screen size on any Samsung smartphone ever.

Other highlight specs of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 include 6GB/8GB RAM, 128GB/512GB internal storage variants, 4,000mAh battery, Android Oreo v8.1, Snapdragon 845 chipset with 2.8GHz Octa-core processor, dual 12MP + 12MP camera, single 8MP front-facing camera, and a smart S Pen.

The stylus of the Note 9 has been made to be smarter as it is bluetooth enabled and can now serve as a remote shutter for the Note’s camera. In addition, the S Pen stylus lasts longer and charges faster (in 40 seconds).

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will be available in Ocean Blue, Midnight Black, Lavender Purple and the new Metallic Copper colour variants. Pricing for the flagship is expected to be as follows:

6GB/128GB Galaxy Note9 – $999

8GB/512GB – $1,250.
