It's more of an iterative update, just like the Galaxy S9. If you thought the leaked pricing on Lazada was too much, you'll be happy to know that it's actually priced significantly lower. As per the leak, the alleged price of the base variant, that comes with 128GB internal storage will be IDR 13,500,000 (roughly Rs 64,400).

Last year's Samsung Galaxy Note 8 was a great addition to the Note series. For the first time, both storage variants will be available on all four major carriers in the U.S., in both blue and purple colors. Samsung is bundling a free Gear Sport, an extra strap and a wireless charger that worth a total of RM1,531. Yes, you can now use the S Pen as a slide advancer for presentations, thanks to a small capacitor that allows it to hold enough power to maintain a Bluetooth LE connection with the phone for up to 30 minutes (the phone can fully charge the S Pen in just 40 seconds).

For Samsung, the Galaxy Note line has served as both a spring of innovation as well as a source of unprecedented controversy. In the near future, the company will work to add even more support, especially in third-party apps.

Other carryovers from the Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ is the chipset - Exynos 9810 Octa - and the inclusion of stereo speakers (finally). New for the Note 9 is a intelligent camera system that uses AI to perform object recognition and detect blinks, notifying the user immediately if a shot is blurry or other issue.


The Note 9 gets a big upgrade when it comes to battery life - in fact, Samsung promises you'll be able to go all day before it's time to recharge. On top of that, it also has an on-device, AI-based performance adjuster, which provides software tweaks to ensure optimal performance.

At the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 event, Epic Games took the stage to announce that Fortnite is now available on Android.

The Galaxy Note 9 packs a dual camera setup at the rear with dual optical image stabilisation. The company also introduced a brand new "Scene Optimized Mode" which delivers a superior result by analyi=zing 20 different scenes. We'd expect carriers to offer payment plans for those who want the maximum storage and upgraded memory, but don't want to spend the whole amount in one fell swoop.

Fortnite is sure to become popular on Android as it is on every other platform, but this Note 9 deal from Samsung is sure to be a compelling offer for anyone looking to stand out from the herd. For the time being, this is without a doubt the best Note device yet, and I can't wait to put the Note 9 through its paces in a full review.
