If you pre-order the phone before August 23, you'll get the option to choose between one of two pricey perks. This is compatible with all Android phones that are running Android 5.0 and later, and it will also work with any iPhone running iOS 9. The phone also boasts AKG-tuned stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos support to offer louder sound output. The standard sale will begin on August 22. That means an all-day battery (whatever that means, in technical terms), alongside 128GB and 512GB variants. "With our built-in plans, customers can truly unlock the Galaxy Note 9 experience on India's fastest mobile network", told Airtel CMO Vani Venkatesh in a press statement.
Samsung is offering a number of launch offers.
Being a big phone release from the biggest Android manufacturer, the Note 9 will have plenty of third-party accessories like screen protectors, rugged cases and vehicle mounts for your employees to use to keep the phone itself safe. £400. The Huawei P20 Pro is £400 cheaper than the best-value Note 9 deal out there at the moment.
Samsung also said the popular shooter game "Fortnite" is coming to Android and will be exclusive to Samsung phones until Sunday.
Epic Games will start rolling out access to players not using Samsung phones in the next few days.
The Note 9 is "designed for a level of performance, power and intelligence that today's power users want and need", added DJ Koh, the head of Samsung's mobile division.
Once you've propped up your phone for the ideal shot or you're trying to take a group selfie with your friends, simply click the S Pen again to snap the picture.
It can categorise photos into one of 20 categories, and then optimise the photo based on the category.
None of this requires an internet connection. Instead Samsung shaved off the edges to make it look thinner. In addition, users can stay on track of their meals using Bixby Vision on their Galaxy device.
Bixby did get a workout, from which we learned that Samsung has been working hard to license and integrate content. Ji Soo Yi, Samsung's veep of AI strategy, pointed out that restaurants could be booked via the voice-controlled assistant without installing Yelp.
These included the ability to handle follow-up questions during a conversation, and integration with Google Maps.
Samsung usually launches its premium flagships in two rounds annually - first half is S series and second half is Note series.
Display brightness was the next benchmark used in the report.
"The targeted corporate and professional users will appreciate being able to control presentations remotely", he explained. The Note 9 is slightly shorter, wider, and heavier than the Note 8. It might not be for everyone, but on the whole it looks like Samsung's "elegant design" promise may actually have come to fruition. Galaxy owners can find the installer in the Samsung Game Launcher app.
And that redesign really is key, arguably, to the success of the Galaxy Watch, as despite this new smartwatch packing some neat new features, the fact that it looks more like a regular watch will no-doubt be the foremost decider in whether potential adopters pull the trigger. It runs Android 8 Oreo and is backed by a 4000 mAh with fast charging. But what may have deterred buyers, its inexplicably small battery for a device of this size, has been rectified.
