Samsung sets high bar for Note9, scoffs at S9 critics

Samsung Galaxy Watch Samsung Galaxy Watch will launch in the coming weeks

The best part? Samsung hasn't raised the price for the base model compared to the Galaxy Note 8, making it an excellent deal for everything the phone offers.

Now Playing: Watch this: Galaxy Note 9 vs. S9 Plus: What's the difference? While many more smartphones are coming in at the $1000 mark, and the Galaxy Note 9 is arguably the one that's most worthy of that price, that's still a lot to pay for a smartphone.

The ninth edition of the Galaxy Note series with a 4,000-miliamphere-hour battery for all-day performance will hit the market on August 24 globally. "Consumers tend to focus more on the sound quality over the AI features when they pay (for speakers)", said Samsung Electronics President Koh Don-jin, who heads the IT and mobile division of Samsung. In fact, the new Galaxy S flagships may be unveiled at CES 2019, which takes place during the second week of the new year.

Koh did not make clear which Samsung phone will debut with 5G connectivity.

The Note 9 features an updated S Pen and a huge 4,000mAh battery that Samsung says will last users the entire day. The setup will reportedly consist of a 12-megapixel wide-angle camera, a 13-megapixel telephoto camera with up to 3x optical zoom, and 16-megapixel super wide-angle camera that has the widest field of view ever seen on a Galaxy S phone.

And there's no excuse for the Galaxy Note 9 to not be among them.

In the two years since the Note 7 disaster, we've had no similar incidents involving Samsung devices. They pointed out the South Korean tech giant's poor sales with the Galaxy S9 and S9+ series in the first half of the year. Just days earlier, Google officially launched Android 9 Pie, bringing a brand new way to navigate, smarter notifications, and indoor mapping with Wi-Fi RTT. The Essential Phone has always been a stunning handset to look at, but with Pie its noticeably better to use now too. The supersonic sensor of the Samsung Galaxy S10 is the company's answer to the iPhone X's facial recognition feature.

Galaxy Note9 also delivers a PC-like experience with Samsung DeX.

It's been whispered for a while that the Samsung Galaxy S10 might have a triple-lens camera, but now we know the possible specs of it.
