Why the Galaxy Note 9 is the new king of the enterprise

It will come as a surprise to absolutely no one that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is now official following the company's Unpacked event. The price for the standard 6GB/128GB version is INR 67,900 ($985) while the 8GB/512GB is INR 84,900 ($1,232).

After launching its flagship device the Galaxy Note9 at a high-flying event in NY yesterday, Samsung announced that the device is available for pre-orders in India. Additionally, the Gear Sport, priced at Rs 22,900 will be available for Rs 4,999 on pre-ordering the device. In case you own either an HDFC Bank credit or debit card, or you have HDFC Consumer Durable loans (CD Loans), you can get a cashback of Rs.6,000. And it has the "largest edge-to-edge display ever on a Note" - a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED Infinity Display (Full HD+ but can be switched to Quad HD+).

Big red has the 128GB Galaxy Note 9 up for pre-order in all the launch colours - Blue, Copper and Black.

A reasonably placed fingerprint sensor. Both offer microSD slots, allowing users to expand the Note 9's onboard storage up to 1TB.

According to a new teaser on Flipkart, pre-orders for the smartphone will begin during its Freedom Day sale.

With up to 8GB of RAM and the Exynos 9 CPU, the Note 9 comes tooled for the level of processing necessary for gaming, and Samsung will be keen to make the most of partnering with Fortnite developers Epic Games.


Samsung has also added an adjustable aperture 12MP main camera to the Note 9, which is paired with a 12MP telephotos camera.

In addition, it also claims to be able to tell you if the lighting is bad - such as when shooting against backlighting - and even if you have a smudge on the lens that may be compromising image quality.

The larger battery is the first time Samsung has tried out a bigger power unit after the fires and overheating that nearly destroyed the Note series of smartphones. Or, you know, your finger.

AT&T's will price the Galaxy Note 9 at $33.34 for 30 months on an AT&T Next installment plan.

Connectivity options on the Note 9 include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac dual-band VHT MU-MMO, 1024 QAM, Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy, ANT+, USB Type-C, NFC, GPS, Galileo, GLONASS, BeiDou, NFC, and MST. There's also a souped-up S Pen that can control your phone remotely, and some AI smarts in the camera app, but it didn't bring the kind of enhancements and innovations that the Note line is known for.

The S Pen, which is a key feature of the Note series, now serves as a remote-controller that operates the camera, making it easier to take selfies. We asked Spotify a few questions, therefore, to understand more clearly what Samsung device and home kit owners will get from the partnership and whether it will benefit users without Spotify Premium too.
