Galaxy Note9, its newest flagship smartphone from the Galaxy Note Series, has as its defining feature, the S Pen. Now powered by Bluetooth, the S Pen connects instantly with the Galaxy Note9 within a 10-meter radius, eliminating the need to switch Bluetooth on and off. 

With just a few clicks, one can make business pitches, activate applications, and browse through photos. Multitaskers can appreciate the device’s 10 -nanometer Application processor, a tiny but powerful chipset that allows seamless use of multiple applications when one does a bevy of activities like send emails, edit presentations, and stream content while reducing battery consumption. 

It is also the first smartphone with a base capacity of 128GB (with a suggested retail price of P55,990), but also comes with a 512GB variant that allows expandable memory. These also utilize Samsung Knox, Samsung’s mobile security platform, to secure important documents and large files.

It also has the Dual Aperture Camera that can take low-light photos with its F1.5 and F2.4 lens aperture. This intelligent camera outsmarts the human eye by capturing Super Slow-Mo videos at 960 frames per second, four times slower than normal slow motion. 

It is also equipped with Real-Time Intelligence that can provide more information about objects in its field of vision as well as Auto Scene Recognition, which can detect up to twenty unique scenes and automatically optimize the photo, depending on the conditions. 

Samsung’s Galaxy Note9 sports 6.4” Super AMOLED Infinity Display and comes in Ocean Blue with a Pearl Yellow S Pen (128GB & 512GB), Midnight Black, (128GB), and Metallic Copper (128GB). A superb and surround sound experience is ensured through stereo speakers tuned by AKG and powered by Dolby Atmos.
