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

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

Unveiled during a key product launch titled "Unpacked", in NY on Thursday, Samsung said the stepped-up features and services are designed for gamers and music-lovers.

In addition to the Galaxy Note 9, Galaxy Watch and Galaxy Home was unveiled - a new home smart speaker that will be coming your way in November. The Galaxy Note 9 has arrived with beefed up specs, but its design is nearly identical to its predecessor. The S Pen, which now supports Bluetooth Low Energy, is just a touch heavier as well. The Note 9 comes that features toughened Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and rear comes in colors like Ocean Blue, Lavender Purple, Metallic Copper and Midnight Black. Read ahead and get to know about the top five things which make the Galaxy Note 9 live up to its reputation.

The camera capabilities on the Note 9 have been borrowed from its latest predecessor, the Galaxy S9+, which comes with variable aperture settings allowing the users to switch between f/1.5 or f/2.4 aperture depending on the lighting conditions.

The Note 9 will also feature the latest and greatest LTE and Wi-Fi radios. Users can use the S-Pen for controlling capturing snaps, flipping through PowerPoint slides, and more. The only major update is seen in the S Pen. When the Note first came out, the S Pen was really only useful for swipe typing, doodling and writing quick notes. The Note 9 doesn't make massive leaps and bounds over the Note 8, and yet the 2017 model will cost you waaaaaay less.

And it will have to work its magic for Samsung as the Note 9 does not have a better selling point, not its 4000mAh battery, not its powerful water-cooled performance, not its stunning AMOLED screen. You'll get an immediate notification if the image is blurry, if the subject blinked, if there is a smudge on the lens or if there is backlight impacting the quality of the image.

Perseids 2018: Where and how to watch the dazzling meteor shower
Though the Perseids can be spotted between July 17 and August 24, the best views will be from Sunday at 4 Monday at 4 a.m. It takes 20 minutes pretty much for your eyes to adjust to the dark and then you'll say oh there's more of them now.

"The partnerships are aimed at making the AI solution more accessible to users", said a Samsung official, adding the firm will expand its AI partnerships later.

Note9's camera matches that of Galaxy S9 Plus.

The device runs Android 8.1 Oreo OS, the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset for the U.S. customers and the models powered by Samsung's very own "Exynos 9 Series 9810" chips will head to the rest of the world, including India. The camera can detect 20 different scenes - from food to flowers - and adjust the settings for the best shot. It can be used to take a photo, Play/Pause YouTube videos, go through slides in PowerPoint.

The Galaxy Watch will hit stores in the United States and various other markets on August 24.

In Taiwan, the Note 9 will be available for pre-orders starting August 15 with delivery to begin on August 24.
