The display screen of the Note 9 is 6.4 inches (16.26 cm). Believe it or not, this is the biggest display screen created by Samsung to-date. What is also special about this display screen is that it comes in deeper black than any of the previous models. This, according to Samsung, ‘allows it to blend in with the bezels when the device is off and enhances the overall aesthetic’. The screen resolution is 1440 x 2960 pixels.

The battery of the Note 9 is 4000 mAh. It can last you an entire day, at least this is what Samsung promises. This feature specifically was tested extensively, to avoid any accidents like the battery explosions incident in 2016.
The Note 9 camera is your best friend with its scene detecting mode feature; it helps you take flawless pictures by choosing the best shooting mode for you. If you are into photography or taking selfies, this is one of your best options. This feature is exclusive to the Note 9. In addition to this feature, the Camera got its share of the upgrade. The Note 9 has a dual 12MP rear setup with dual- aperture technology. The front camera is 8 MP. On a lighter note, the AR Emoji are back with some more customization.
As you may already know, the S Pen feature is one of the main reasons people switch to the Note phones. With the Note 9, as we mentioned earlier, Samsung gave the S Pen a major upgrade. This upgrade is the addition and utilization of a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). This allows you to have control over your phone from a distance. It’s revolutionary, right? You can use it to pause videos, move between slides of a presentation, and is a switch to take selfies as well as group photos. However, the S Pen has more uses than this. Keep in mind that this new S Pen will need to be charged because of its battery. This upgrade is the first of its kind in years.
What is also impressive about the Note 9 is that it is compatible with the Dex. This allows you to use your phone as a desktop. Just plug into a monitor and keyboard and enjoy the experience.
The Note 9 phone looks extremely elegant. Thanks to the Die-cutting process that was used to create the frame, it has a mix of both glossy and matte finishes. This goes really well with the elegant and premium design. The phone is 8.8 mm slim and weights 201 grams. What colors are the phone available in? you are probably wondering. If you live in the states, you can either have it in Ocean Blue or Lavender Purple. However, if you live in other parts of the world, you have a wider selection between Midnight Black and the Metallic Copper. Note 9, like all the other models by Samsung, comes with its own official set of unique and colorful wallpapers that you can use.
The only downside to the phone, according to the different experts and reviewers, is its extremely high price. You can buy as much money for an iPhone X and only get the basic features of the Note 9.
