Samsung Galaxy Note 9, data sheet of characteristics and price

22 mayo, 2021

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is now official. The South Korean manufacturer has presented its new high-end mobile in New York for the second half of the year. Following in the wake of the Galaxy S9, the new Note is a flagship that improves on its predecessor in all respects but represents an evolution rather than a revolution.

We are facing a device with a 6.4-inch SuperAMOLED screen, a large 4,000 mAh battery, a double camera like the one we saw in the Galaxy S9 + and the S Pen. Let’s go over all its features and see what the new Samsung Galaxy Note 9 offers.

Metal and glass body with the largest display in the Note range

Samsung Resistance

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 keeps a design similar to that of previous years. We have one combination of metal and glass in a water resistant body and with the fingerprint reader on the back.

The SuperAMOLED screen chosen for the Note 9 grows to 6.4 inches with a resolution of 2960 x 1440 pixels in an 18.5: 9 format. The South Korean manufacturer still does not add the ‘notch’ in its devices but that does not prevent the body from being very compact. Another issue is the thickness and weight, since in this Note 9 we go up to 8.8 millimeters and a weight of 201 grams. Some usual figures in terminals of this size, more considering that the battery has also increased.

We met with IP68 certification and they bet on Gorilla Glass 5 to protect the screen from scratches and drops. In addition to the S-pen support, which we will now talk about, an iris reader with facial recognition, a dedicated button for Bixby and stereo speakers signed by AKG Harman is added.

More battery, memory and storage

Samsung Storage

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 incorporates the Exynos 9810 processor, a 10 nanometer chip that we already saw in the Galaxy S9. Yes, the RAM memory has been increased, since we start from the 6GB with option to go up to 8GB.

Equivalently, base storage also improves. We start from 128GB which can be expanded with a microSD card of up to 512GB. In addition to this, the top model with an internal memory of 512GB is confirmed, thus becoming one of the few mobiles with so much memory.

Battery capacity has also increased by 21% over the previous model. With the Note 9 we have 4,000 mAh battery and fast charge compatible Through the USB type C port. In addition to improving the battery, a liquid cooling system is also added to reduce the temperature.

Double chamber with variable aperture

Note 9

In the absence of testing it thoroughly, the Note 9’s camera is quite similar to that of the Galaxy S9 +. We have a Dual rear sensor with variable aperture f / 1.5-2.4, 1.4µm pixels and OIS optical stabilization. As for the secondary sensor, it is also 12 megapixels to achieve two-magnification zoom.

Video recording allows you to capture in 4K at 60fps and in super slow motion of 960fps in HD resolution. As we can see, these are data equivalent to what we had at the beginning of the year. The improvement in the Note 9 is mainly based on the software, where the identification of scenes has been optimized.

Regarding the front camera, we find a single 8 megapixel sensor and a lens with f / 1.7 aperture.

S Pen, DeX and exclusives

Beyond the technical characteristics, the main protagonist of the Note range is the S Pen. Fortunately, every year the stylus of the Note range is more precise and useful. In this year’s model bluetooth connectivity is released and allows remote control of different applications. Samsung has also confirmed that they will open the SDK of the new S Pen to integrate these controls.

The S Pen will serve to draw with its 4,096 levels of pressure and Wacom technology. This year several applications have been added, including one that allows you to practice with images as templates. Another important accessory for the Note 9 is DeX, the dock that acts as a base and allows for example to connect a screen with a USB type C to HDMI adapter.

Android 8.1 Oreo is the version that we have in this Note 9, although we must find the differentiation in the Samsung Experience. The Note 9 is a terminal with a large amount of exclusive content, among which is a powerful alliance between Samsung and Epic Games to offer Fornite for Android exclusively.
