Samsung has launched so many galaxy series and Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is the latest smartphone launched by Samsung in 2018.

The new Note 9 features a bigger display, a broader footprint, a bigger battery, dual speakers and a smarter S Pen. It packs in the latest chipset from Samsung and even comes with a whopping 512 GB of internal storage that can be expanded to 1 TB.

This time Samsung has also focused on mobile gamers by keeping the smartphone cool while playing games. It falls in the premium category as it holds so many interesting features in itself.

S Pen

The new S Pen is well thought out and while it looks similar to the previous one, a lot has changed inside. There is now a supercapacitor that holds a charge and powers a Bluetooth LE module, which lets you use the S Pen as a trigger for presentation slides, as a physical shutter button while taking selfies and even as a tool for unlocking the device.
