KUALA LUMPUR: Samsung Electronics Co Ltd (Samsung) has announced the latest addition to its premium Note series with Samsung Galaxy Note9.
Galaxy Note9 is premium smartphone that delivers the ultimate in performance; a new S Pen with connectivity for the first time ever; and Samsung’s most intelligent camera yet.
“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 Samsung Electronics president and chief executive officer (CEO) of IT & Mobile Communications Division DJ Koh.
“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.”
Galaxy Note9’s 4,000mAh battery is the largest ever on a flagship Galaxy phone for long-lasting power.
It also boasts more internal storage space. The Galaxy Note9 is available with two internal storage options – choose from 128GB or 512GB. Plus, with the ability to insert a microSD card, Galaxy Note9 is 1TB ready.
Galaxy Note9 is also equipped with cutting-edge 10nm processor and supports some of the fastest network speeds available in the market (up to 1.2 gigabits per second).
Galaxy Note9 also includes an industry-leading and Samsung developed Water Carbon Cooling system and on-device AI-based performance adjusting algorithm to deliver the powerful yet stable performance.
The S Pen is the signature feature of the Note series. 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.
For one of its most important component, Galaxy Note9’s camera builds on Samsung’s industry-leading camera technologies with new capabilities that take the work out of getting the perfect photo.
Galaxy Note9’s camera is Samsung’s smartest yet as 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.
It also features ‘flaw detection’ technology whereby it lets users know if there’s something wrong with the photos they took using the device.
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 Aperture 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.
On the design of the Galaxy Note9, the Infinity Display is the cornerstone of Samsung’s design heritage, and Galaxy Note9 has the largest edge-to-edge display ever on a Note. The 6.4-inch Super AMOLED Infinity Display provides a truly immersive multimedia experience.
Galaxy Note9’s Infinity Display is complemented by stereo speakers, which are tuned by AKG, and ability to deliver Dolby Atmos immersive audio for a life like experience.
Galaxy Note9 also delivers a PC-like experience with Samsung DeX. Users can work on presentations, edit photos, and watch their favorite show all powered by their phone. Experience Samsung DeX with easy-to-carry HDMI adapters. When connected to a monitor, Galaxy Note9 can power a virtualised desktop and even serve as a fully-functional second screen. Take notes with the S Pen while watching a video, or use Galaxy Note9 as a trackpad, to right-click, drag and drop, and use multiple windows on a monitor. It’s never been easier to be more productive.
The premium Galaxy technologies come standard with Note9: fast wireless charging, IP68 water and dust resistance and Samsung services such as Samsung Health and Samsung Pay. Galaxy Note9 features Samsung’s trusted, defense-grade Knox security platform and biometric security options including fingerprint scanning, iris scanning and facial recognition capabilities to keep important information safe.
The Galaxy Note9 will be available starting August 24, 2018 in Malaysia and will be offered in Midnight Black, Metallic Copper with matching S Pen, and Ocean Blue with a Yellow S Pen.
