A technical data sheet top of the range, without too much of a surprise
Here is an outline of the technical data sheet of Note 9, which ultimately is not very surprising, and reproduces the same characteristics of the flagships in the current market. It is distinguished by contrast of course by its S-Pen , on which I will come back to later :
Snapdragon Cpu 845
Screen 6.4-inch Super AMOLED 2960×1440
A 128 Gb version with 6 Gb of RAM, and a 512 Gb with 8 Gb of RAM, both expandable by a Micro SD up to 512 Gb, or 1 Tb in total
Double photo sensor of 12MP and 8MP for the front

If these characteristics are not surprising, it is still necessary to emphasize that the enthusiasts storage can have up to 1tb of data on their such as purchasing a Micro SD card of 512 Gb !
Experience Gaming improved
Wishing to reach a wider target market with the Note 9 and the gaming mobile becoming more important, Samsung has taken care to design a hardware in line with this observation. In fact, the phone is equipped with a steam room more impressive than on these older phones in order to cool the beast as effectively as possible. The performance of the Note 9 will be adjusted in real time using artificial intelligence in order to offer a better experience of the game.
A PC in the pocket ?
Completed the docking station to experience Samsung DeX, which promises to be able to use the Note 9 as to a PC ! This time, to connect the smartphone to a screen and use it as a computer through DeX, a simple HDMI-to-USB C is sufficient, making the function even more easily transportable and convenient.
The S-Pen, big point of Note 9
It is a feature that is awaited by all the fans of the range Note each year, the return of the S-Pen, the stylus made in Samsung, which allows to use always the more convenient and accurate of the smartphone. This time, the pen will have a connectivity Bluetooth low energy, for an autonomy of 30 minutes, after a load of 40 seconds. Thus, the S-Pen offers several features that are welcome such as the ability to skip slides remotely using its button control YouTube remotely, and take control of the camera by pressing the button to take a photo… and of course take notes quickly with the mode screen off memo. The SDK for the S-Pen being opened open, it remains only to editors of app to create processes to exploit the pen in different ways.
The camera part
Even if the hardware remains identical to the Samsung Note 8, an improvement of the software was carried out with the artificial intelligence who comes to mingle with the party photo. It is used to recognize a specific scene (flowers, a meadow, a person…) in order to take the photo in the most appropriate possible. A function than ever before is also the detection of the problems of shooting, which with the help of a pop-up warns the user of a possible problem to solve to take the best possible such as cleaning the lenses, a blurred photo, or a person who blinks at it.
