Initial reports had stated the pre-orders in the Europe market region had been steadfast that initial reservation slots are running out, especially with Samsung’s choice of colors namely Ocean Blue, Metallic Copper, Lavender Purple, and Midnight Black.
Amidst the chaos in the initial reservation by European websites and U.S. carriers like Verizon and Sprint, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has been given previews among notable technological gurus, such as tech site CNET.
Upon first handling of the Galaxy Note 9, one of the most notable features of the said smartphone is its whooping big storage, amounting from 128GB to as big as 512GB. Of course with the most setups in most Android devices, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 even has a memory card slot, further expanding your initial storage, in case you are not really a big fan of virtual or cloud storing.
As with modern Samsung flagship phones, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 boasts of its artificial intelligence (AI) camera. Although most phone makers around the world had already done it such as Oppo and Huawei, the AI camera of the Note 9 has further enhanced the AI capabilities of the lens capture aperture, hence it enhances the image qualities of the picture, in line with their detected subject. Say for instance, the user wants to take a picture of an open bag of chips, the AI camera of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will immediately detect the subject as ‘food’ and will enhance the natural color of the subject for aesthetic purposes and emphasis.
Another thing that is most talked about the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is the existence of the S Pen. Although major Note releases throughout the years had been steadfast in producing styluses for the previous Note phones, the S Pen for this particular Samsung release is equipped with Bluetooth technology that also created an autonomous effect for the stylus as you may say. Its inclusion of Bluetooth technology can turn the S Pen into an antennae, a quick swipe for pinning new notes and reminders, and swipe up for the Smart Menu on any screen. Hence, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is a manifestation that not only its is built for casual people who are into photography, but also to business aficionados that like to take notes on their phones.
With the impending global release of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, analysts say that Samsung is still holding back to their new release of the Samsung Galaxy S10. But for whatever reason it is, the market competitions between smartphone magnates will continue, and so as price increases.
