But while this is happening we already have a new banner on Android, a phone that stands out for its battery, power and artificial intelligence.

More power for better performance
The Galaxy Note 9 is much more powerful than its predecessor in many ways, not only in the improvement of the processor, but also in elements that will make it much faster and more productive, since the S-Pen is now loaded with new features such as bluetooth technology, with which we can remotely control the equipment, take a picture, unlock the device and much more.
First let’s talk about the processor, which is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, one of the most powerful SoC this year, and which comes with 6GB and 8GB of RAM, so we are talking about one of the most powerful phones this year.
Also, Samsung has included much larger storage versions, all thinking that the audience of the Galaxy Note are usually people who occupy the phone for work, ie the business sector, for this reason we will have a 128 GB version and another of 512 GB, although both models may extend their storage capacity through a microSD memory of up to 1TB.
S-Pen, faster and with better autonomy
The S-Pen is a hallmark of the Galaxy Not, and for this version has improved significantly, and is that the South Korean firm has included Bluetooh technology to remotely control some features of the device, for example, you can unlock the phone with the S -Pen in hand, take a picture or play a video, plus we will continue having the functions of taking notes with the screen “off”, select text, draw, etc. Likewise, the S-Pen of the Note 9 maintains 4,096 pressure points that its previous generation already offered.
The battery is another very important point, which offers half an hour of autonomy with only seconds of charge, while with the full charge you will spend a lot of time without worrying about the battery of this smart pen.
Camera: embracing artificial intelligence
Cameras with artificial intelligence have become fashionable this year, and Samsung was one of those that was missing to join this trend, at least officially presenting a camera with AI, and Note 9 is the first to offer it as such.
Technically we are talking about the same camera that we saw in the Galaxy S9 +, same sensors, same dual aperture, but different quality, why ?, for artificial intelligence, and that if the S9 + camera was difficult to find many buts, Note 9 promises to solve any failure that the S9 + could present with the help of artificial intelligence.
The artificial intelligence of the camera can detect up to 20 different scenes and modify the settings of the camera to have the perfect picture, that is, your food photos will not be the same as your friends or your pets, but they all promise to look perfect.
Likewise, we will have blink detection, front light and dirty lens, all with the purpose of ensuring that our images are not damaged, so the phone will notify us of these details to take the photograph again.
Great battery for a big smartphone
After all the problems that were presented with the Galaxy Note 7, Samsung had to reduce the amount of mAh in the Galaxy Note 8, and for the Galaxy Note 9 we have a large 4,000 mAh battery, which promises an autonomy of day and a half without any problem.
And we must not forget that the Note 9 is a phone designed to work on it, so the battery was one of the less outstanding points of the Galaxy Note 8, a situation that changes completely in the Note 9.
Samsung has been working for a long time to improve the safety of batteries, and ensure that the Note 9 has one of the safest batteries on the market, so that customers can enjoy a huge battery in a thin phone without having to worry about anything .
Also, we will have fast and wireless charging technology in the Galaxy Note 9, which is practically a hallmark of all Samsung’s high-end devices.
One of the technologies that Samsung has been working on since the Galaxy S8 is in the Galaxy DeX, the doc that allows your phone to become a computer when you connect it to a monitor, and although the previous versions needed a dock for the phone, now DeX has evolved, and you only need a cable adapter, yes, a cable adapter.
Adopting the idea of Huawei, the new Note 9 can be converted into your computer by connecting it to the monitor by a special cable that you can carry in the trouser bag, so you will not need to carry the phone dock, just take the cable and connect it to a monitor and keyboard so that it works without problem.
Price and availability.
The team will be launched in Mexico in the coming weeks, and will be available in pre-sale from next Thursday, August 23, and will be released on Friday, August 31.
The price of the two models of the Galaxy Note 9 is as follows:
- Galaxy Note 9 128GB internal storage: $ 24,999 MXN
- Galaxy Note 9 of 512 GB of internal storage: $ 29,999 MXN
The sale of the equipment will be in department stores, Samsung Store and Customer Service Centers Telcel, which will be the first operator to put the Galaxy Note 9 on sale, although it is expected that later it will arrive with other operators in our country.
Fortnie, an exclusive Samsung for Android
One of the most successful games in recent years will make its official debut on Android very soon, but first it will be exclusively with Samsung devices, that is, it will not be exclusive of Note 9, but of Samsung, at least during the first weeks of life.
The CEO of Epic Games has mentioned that the game will be able to be tested in beta since today, and although it has not been specified which will be all Samsung phones compatible with the Fortnite beta, it seems that they will be the Galaxy S8, S8 +, S9, S9 +, Galaxy Tab S4, Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy Note 9.
