Why the Galaxy Note 9 is the new king of the enterprise

Why the Galaxy Note 9 is the new king of the enterprise

In terms of network support and retailers, in the USA the LTE version of the Galaxy Watch, which is set to cost more than the base model, is being sold via AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, and the official Samsung online store. It's big, pretty, and comes with a stylus.

A display brightness test for the Galaxy Note 9 reveals that the device has a peak luminosity of 604 nits, considerably greater than the iPhone X and OnePlus 6 which score 547 each.

Under the hood is Samsung's in-house 10nm Exynos 9810 or Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 CPU (depending on region), paired with either 6GB or 8GB RAM depending on whether you pick up the 128GB or 512GB model.

By nature of it being a Samsung wearable, the Galaxy Watch will challenge the Apple Watch in many ways. The Note 9's camera upgrade is on par with the one given to the S9 in March, adding enhanced colours and exposure. The Note 9 is launching with Android 8.0 Oreo just a few weeks after Android 9 Pie is released. That was a real hand-stretcher. This does make the Note 9 more unwieldy than smaller phones, but the tradeoff may be worth it for some users. The square ratio of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 wallpapers enables a nice scrolling effect when you slide from one home screen panel to the next. Although, it seems a bit underutilized. An upcoming public SDK will allow developers to program custom functions into their apps specifically for use with the S Pen.

The company hopes to break through its sales slump with the new Note, after it reported last month that its flagship Galaxy S9 phone missed sales targets. Samsung cleverly included inductive charging in the S Pen, so it'll fill up when docked in the phone. Rather than a battery, the S Pen has a supercapacitor inside that keeps it running for about 30 minutes at a time. It recharges in less than a minute, too.


The new phone, the Galaxy Note 9, will be faster and will last longer without a recharge.

Sitting through Samsung's Unpacked press conference in Brooklyn yesterday, I wasn't struck with a barrage of technical specifications, comparisons to the competition, or endless feature demos. Lovers of the game will get an exclusive Note 9 character skin or alternative appearance for characters.

But in reality, sticking a memory card in the base model for £75 / $100 would give you more than enough space and it's hard to see why you'd need the extra RAM in most cases... so that's a premium that many won't need to pay.

More than half of those sales were claimed by Apple, however, which launched a cellular version of its Watch in September previous year.
