Samsung Galaxy Note9 Announced & Priced: Due August 24th
Whilst there was nothing totally mind-blowing at the Unpacked event today concerning the phone itself, we did get to see what is Samsung’s most ambitious and beautiful piece of hardware to date.
Samsung Galaxy Note9 Features
The Note range always offers something a little special compared to the usual smartphone release. With the addition of the ever-versatile S Pen, along with a huge display, battery and increased power efficiency, the Note9 will be the power user’s handset of choice for a while yet.
The S Pen can now be used to remotely control certain features of the phone. For instance, it can be used to activate the camera shutter, forward through slides in a presentation or pause/play during media playback. You can even assign custom controls for compatible apps.
A new water-carbon cooling system is also available to assist in keeping the handset running well during power-intensive applications. Expect that to kick in if you happen to be playing Fortnite. Samsung has struck a deal with Epic games for timed Note9 exclusivity for the official Android launch of the hugely popular battle-royale game.
Samsung Galaxy Note9 launches in the UK August 24th. Clove Technology will stock all Single SIM UK specification handset configurations. 128/6GB and 512/8GB will retail for £899 and £1,099 (inc. UK VAT) respectively.
