Galaxy Note 9 now available for pre-order in India

Samusng uneils the Galaxy Note 9 during an Unpacked event at the Barclays Center in New York City on August 9, 2018. We have the 12 Samsung Galaxy Note 9 wallpapers in full resolution below.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 launched, pre-orders begin; Xiaomi Mi A2 launched in India; Xiaomi plans to launch India-specific flagship; and WhatsApp limits messaging forwarding to five chats.

Geekbench 4 measures overall performance.

While promoting the release of Fortnite on Android devices for the first time alongside the Galaxy Note 9, Samsung brought on Casey Neistat and Ninja, two of the most well-recognized figures in the online community, to demonstrate gameplay from the popular Battle Royale title.

Naturally, Samsung has equipped the Note 9 with the latest processor and 8GB of memory as well as that hefty amount of storage space.

OnePlus 6 only costs $579.

In this light, the Galaxy Home's main competitor is Apple's HomePod, meaning the devices will go head-to-head in the high-end smart home speaker market. The super capacitor inside the S-pen gives the device a 30 minute battery life with only a 40 second charge.

Given that the device we used was fresh off the boat from Samsung HQ, it was blazingly fast - whether or not it stays that way after a year or so of daily use remains to be seen.

The Note 9 launches with Android 8.1, which would have been fine a few weeks ago.

If these mega-featured smartphones are overwhelming or unnecessary for you - you might be more interested in the iconic Nokia 8110 banana phone, available to pre-order today at Carphone Warehouse, EE, O2, Vodafone and other key retailers and e-tailers for a RRP of £69... That's just the base model, though.

The phablet also comes with an updated version of Samsung's signature S Pen, which will not only allow owners to draw with their phones but click to take selfies and interact with their phone.

The trademark feature of the Note series is the S Pen stylus. The one you see in the image above is the 42mm one, as it also comes in a black 46mm variant for those that have massive wrists. For another £150 / $249 you're getting a bit more RAM (useless to most) and far more internal storage.

"We're three generations removed now", Samsung's director of USA product marketing, Suzanne De Silva, said of the company's renewed confidence in the battery.

"The cellular model provides a true e-SIM experience so customers can also use their Galaxy Watch when roaming overseas, which we believe sets our smartwatch apart from our competitors", he said.
