After months of rumours, leaks and plenty of speculation the Galaxy Note 9 has finally be unveiled.
This new device has just been shown to the world at Samsung’s Unpacked event in New York with it boasting plenty of upgrades which could make it one of the most powerful phones ever.
The Korean technology firm hasn’t tinkered too much with the look of its new device with it featuring a very similar 6.4-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED curved Infinity display and an all -glass finish.
However, there is a change when you spin the Note around as the fingerprint scanner has now been moved to a much more convenient position under the dual-lens camera.
This should mean users are far less likely to touch the lens when trying to unlock this new phablet.
Although there are only minor changes on the outside there’s plenty going on under the hood to make this a decent successor to the Galaxy Note 8.
Tucked inside its glass and metal body is an upgraded 10nm 64-bit Octa-core processor, up to 8GB of RAM and a giant 4,000mAh battery which Samsung says is the largest ever on a flagship Galaxy phone.
Another nice update is the addition of more memory with the new Note arriving with either 128 or 512GB of internal storage which is expandable to 1TB via a microSD card.
If it’s photography that’s most important to you then you’ll be treated to a refreshed dual-lens snapper on the Note 9.
This double camera offers a 2x optical zoom and wide-angle capabilities as well as being able to add DSLR-style depth of field to your photos.
Other new camera features include Scene Optimiser which uses intelligence to identify elements of a photo, such as scene and subject, to automatically classify it into one of 20 categories and instantly optimise it based on the category.
Flaw Detection gives users an immediate notification if the image is blurry, the subject blinked, there is a smudge on the lens, or there’s backlight impacting the quality of the image.
And a Dual Aperture lens adjusts to light just like the human eye with Samsung boasting that no matter the lighting conditions, Galaxy Note 9’s top-tier camera delivers a crystal-clear shot.
One of the biggest bonus features of all Note phones is the iconic S Pen which, over the last few years, has been radically advanced with a more accurate nib and extra features.
And things are getting even better on this next generation phablet with this latest digital stylus now featuring Bluetooth technology.
This new connection means the S Pen can now be used to trigger photos, control presentations remotely, or even operate other apps without having to touch the device itself.
Samsung says the new Note 9 will be available to pre-order from today with prices starting from £899 for the 128GB model and £1,099 for the larger 512GB storage.
The phone is available in a number of colours including Midnight Black, Lavender Purple and Ocean Blue with this device also including a Yellow S Pen
Those who pre-order will get their hands on the phone from August 24.
