After weeks of teasing us, Samsung’s newest flagship phone the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is finally available for purchase.
We already broke down how this phone stacks up against the competition (mainly the iPhone X) and should give Samsung plenty of reason to be confident that they have a phone that is equally as good or in some cases better than Apple’s $1000 baby. The Note 9 comes in two colors: Ocean Blue with a yellow S Pen or a Lavender Purple finish with a matching S Pen. It also features stereo speakers, a 6.4-inch edge to edge screen, 4,000mAh battery that promises to keep you texting, Tweeting and Instagramming all day with the option of either 128GB or 512GB which can be expanded thanks to the ability to use microSD cards.
The Note 9’s biggest feature the S Pen has been upgraded and can be used to perform a bevy of features. Now equipped with Bluetooth technology you can use the accessory to either help you capture the perfect selfie or regular photo as well as perform other actions. Depending on how much base storage you decide to go with, the Note 9 either comes with 6GB or 8GB memory. To help the new handset run smoothly, based on your location the Note 9 will either be powered by Samsung’s Exynos 9810 CPU or Snapdragon 845.
Oh, and if you are a mobile gamer, you can take your Fortnite skills on the road cause insanely popular battle royale game can be played on the powerful smartphone. Speaking of Fornite, Note 9 and Galaxy Tab S4 users gain access to an exclusive skin to use in the game.
