Samsung Galaxy Note 9 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 8

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 8

The Note 9's 6.4-inch screen is slightly bigger than the Note 8's 6.3-inch display, but unless you get both phone's side-by-side it is nearly impossible to notice.

Apart from that, the Galaxy Note 9's front design remains unchanged.

The Note 9 will have Samsung's octa-core Samsung Exynos 9810 processor in the United Kingdom or an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 in the U.S., with a choice of either 6 or 8GB of RAM, depending on storage variant. Well, that's because you can use the S Pen as a remote control. Priced at $11.99 and available through Samsung direct, it includes on-site technical support and assistance, along with a replacement device if yours breaks.

Another feature that's been improved for the Note 9 is DeX.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 was announced this morning at a massive Unpacked event in NY. And with the microSD expansion option, you can bring that up to a total of 1TB.

The new S Pen allows you to remotely launch the Note 9's camera app with a long press of the clicky end of the stylus, flip the camera to selfie mode with a short press, and take a group photo with two presses.

The Note 9 starts at $999.99, while the 512GB version will cost you $1,249.99. As with the S9 it has the variable dual-aperture system (f/1.5 and f/2.4) created to mimic the human eye, a 2x optical zoom on the secondary lens, and a dual-pixel sensor for super slow-mo video recording.

Prosecutors objected and Gates never answered the question. "I thought it was a lower amount", Gates said Wednesday. Ellis III has interrupted prosecutors throughout the trial to encourage them to speed things along.

The "intelligent camera" knows what you're photographingand automatically enhances the image's colors and focus.

The Galaxy Note 8 also has a dual-lens camera, but there's no variable aperture here. Both lenses do still sport OIS though while the f/2.4 lens is also capable of 2x optical zoom.

The Galaxy Note9 will offer the "largest Galaxy Note Infinity display ever" just under 6.4 inches, with real estate gained by reducing the bottom bezel.

The Samsung Note 9 has now been officially announced and our colleague Matt Swider over at T3's sister site TechRadar has had some quality hands-on time with it.

It's not clear whether there will be any surprises, but you can find out for sure by tuning in to the event. We'll be interested to see whether it can get far into a second day or not though. After all, Samsung claims an all-day battery life with the Note 9.

At the time of writing we don't have price information for the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 in the Australia, but in the U.S. and United Kingdom at least you'll be able to pre-order the phone from August 10 and August 9 respectively, and it will hit stores on August 24 at a price of $999.99 (£899, around AU$1,350) for the 128GB model and $1,249.99 (£1,099, roughly AU$1,685) for the 512GB version. They are all completely accurate from the looks of things.

Design-wise, not much has changed, but there is one huge improvement on the back of the Note 9: the fingerprint sensor's positioning.
