Samsung Will Use These Freebies to Sweeten the Deal on Note 9

Samsung Will Use These Freebies to Sweeten the Deal on Note 9

It was introduced with the Note 8, with the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ going on to also support it. Samsung is also including a new S Pen with the Galaxy Note 9.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9: Release date While we already know that Samsung's new phablet will be launched on August 9, the phone will go on sale in select markets on August 24, roughly two weeks after the official announcement.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will not be skipping the 3.5 mm headphone jack like some of the new modern Android phones, and Apple's newer iPhones.

This could mean that the Galaxy skin will come as part of the pre-order package, although this is all speculation since there has been no confirmation from Samsung or Epic. The camera will reportedly have speech bubbles that pop up to alert you of any imperfections like blurriness. This piece of information has been reaffirmed by an image of Galaxy Note 9 Value Pack retail box shared by Dutch site Techtastic. The retail box includes the AKG headphones along with a auto mount. Also, the S Pen will be able to deliver up to 30 minutes of use by charging for just 40 seconds. We've seen the handset leak out several different times, with the last couple of instances coming from Samsung itself. The colour of the stylus is also said to determine the colour of the on-screen memo font.

And you can apparently use Samsung's DeX mode (which lets you connect the phone to a monitor and have a more desktop-like experience) simply by hooking it up to an HDMI cable - no dock is needed.

However, you might get some choice as to what comes with your Note 9, as Reddit user Wan997 claims it will be packaged with a choice of those AKG headphones, a Fortnite gaming package, or both for an extra $99 (around £75/AU$135). The updated S Pen now includes Bluetooth, letting users control their camera, presentations, and other apps with their S Pen wirelessly - much like the Surface Pen.
