The Super Powerful Galaxy Note9

Performance is top of mind for smartphone users, and Galaxy Note9 is
designed to keep up with you all day1, every day.

  • Battery: With a 4,000mAh battery in the Galaxy Note9, you get
    long-lasting all day power to watch movies, play games, listen to
    music and more.
  • Storage: Store more and delete less with 128 and 512GB storage
    options. And with a microSD card (sold separately) slot, Galaxy Note9
    is 1TB-ready2—so you'll have room to add to your favorite
    photos, videos and apps.
  • Infinity Display: The 6.4" Quad HD Super AMOLED Infinity
    Display received a record-setting A+
    rating from DisplayMate
    , which called the Galaxy Note9 "the most
    innovative and high-performance smartphone display that we have ever
    lab tested."
  • Speed and Power: Galaxy Note9 is a super powerful smartphone
    with cutting-edge 10nm processor and support for the fastest network
    speeds available (up to 1.2 gigabits per second), so you can stream
    and download without slowing down.
  • Gaming: Galaxy Note9 features an innovative Water Carbon
    Cooling system, and on-device AI-based performance adjustment
    algorithm, so you can play graphics-rich games and still get stable
    performance. In all, the power, performance, vivid display and stereo
    speakers make the Galaxy Note9 ideal for mobile gaming. And for fans
    of Fortnite, one of the hottest mobile games, the Galaxy Note9 and the
    Galaxy Tab S4 offer special access to an exclusive Galaxy skin
    designed just for them.

Remote Control S Pen

Since the beginning, the S Pen—an essential productivity and creativity
tool—has separated the Note from other premium devices. Now, with
Bluetooth (BLE) connectivity, the S Pen becomes a powerful remote
control. Use it to take, and be in, group selfies, or present slides and
control playlists. The S Pen charges in the phone in under a minute, so
it's ready for you in a matter of moments. Developers can even bring the
functionality of the S Pen to their apps later this year.

Intelligent Camera

Users want to take the best pictures possible, but they don't want to
have to search through their smartphone's camera settings do it. To make
it easier to take a great photo, the Galaxy Note9 introduces Scene
Optimizer, which uses intelligence to identify the subject of the shot,
automatically classify it into one of 20 categories, and adjust the
settings accordingly. The result is an effortless, stunning shot. With
Flaw Detection, if the subject's eyes are closed, the image is blurry,
or there is a smudge on the lens, the Galaxy Note9 will instantly notify
you. That way, you can take another picture before you lose the moment.

In addition, the Galaxy Note9 features advanced noise reduction
technology, and a Dual Aperture lens, which adjusts to light just like
the human eye. No matter the lighting conditions, the top-tier camera
delivers a crystal clear shot.
