Samsung unveils gaming-friendly Galaxy Note 9 to boost sales

Epic’s changing Fortnite matchmaking to save console players from keyboard and mouse

The company hopes to break through its sales slump with the new note, after it reported last month that its flagship Galaxy S9 phone missed sales targets. It has "Connected Health" features, including stress management, which will track your heart rate and offer suggestions if it thinks you need to destress.

When you remove the S Pen from the Note 9, you'll notice a small button right in the middle of the pen.

Featuring a 6.4-inch SuperAMOLED display with a resolution of 2960×1440 pixels, the Galaxy Note 9 includes the "largest" Galaxy Note Infinity display ever.

Samsung makes some of the best displays in the market, so it's really expected for the Note 9 to have such a great-looking screen.

The "main aim of the trip" was to "create a dialogue" and "improve relations" between Moscow and Washington , Paul added. Trump later walked back the remark and said he trusted the US intelligence community's assessment Moscow did interfere.

The Note 9 camera uses AI to identify what's in the shot and adjust the lighting and colors accordingly. The new S Pen has a low power Bluetooth module which charges instantly each time you stow it into the phone. A supercapacitor now powers the S Pen, and the accessory can reach full charge in 40 seconds after being inserted back into the phone. You can set up similar actions for every standard app, and third parties will be able to build S Pen support into their apps as well. This hasn't been confirmed by Samsung yet, but that's what was rumored before the event in NY.

Samsung has released its own USB-C accessories for this goal, and DeX will also work with compatible third-party dongles. Samsung promises the processor is 33 per cent faster than what came before. In my brief time with the device, there's absolutely no noticeable performance hiccup, and it can open multiple apps very, very quickly.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 alleged specifications The Galaxy Note 9 has been in the news for quite a while and has faced too many leaks. Of course, there's no telling just how good these features are until we test it out ourselves. It even features the same variable aperture system like the S9+, where you can switch between f/1.5 and f/2.4 aperture on the fly. We don't like the way it looks and we would prefer the vertical dual-camera layout on the current Galaxy S9+. In our short usage, the "scene" icon is barely noticeable, and the recognition doesn't feel as quick as Huawei's P20. After that, it should finally be available to more devices, but only those that meet the requirements. You can expect the same Infinity Display, the same headphone jack, and numerous same technologies that you've come to expect from the Galaxy Note brand, including IP68 dust and water resistance, fast wireless charging, Samsung Knox, and several biometric security options, including fingerprint scanning, iris scanning and facial recognition capabilities.

Samsung does not break out shipments of its smartphone models, but analysts reckon it has shipped around 10 million Note 8 models so far.
