new york - The world's largest smartphone supplier Samsung has presented the Galaxy Note9 in New York. The South Korean company also showed the Galaxy Watch, a new line of smartwatches, in the Big Apple sighing under a heat wave.
Samsung took a big hit at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, which lasted three and a half thousand spectators during Unpacked 2018. Most of the attention went to one euro after a thousand euro costing new Note9, which has been the showpiece for the electronics giant for years in the field of premium technology and groundbreaking innovations.
One day before Unpacked 2018, De Telegraaf, with a view of the impressive skyline of Manhattan, had the new Note9 to the test. Samsung technicians showed the latest gadgets of the versatile smartphone, the most expensive version of which is equipped with up to 1 TB of memory (good for such a 2000 netflix episodes!).
Striking on the Note-line is and remains the stylus, which can be conjured out of the device with a simple click. In the Netherlands the Note9 will be available in blue, black and purple. Applicable was our test device in the 'club colors' of De Telegraaf. Blue with a striking yellow stylus, the S Pen.
Thanks to Bluetooth Low-Energy (BLE) on the new S Pen opens a wide range of distinctive options. No more fumbling with a timer and sprinting to get a good picture, but with a simple click away selfies, group photos or ordinary photos. Switching from the front to the rear camera is done with a double click.
With the same S pen you present slides of a presentation on a big screen or you pause a video. Making notes in your own handwriting is a piece of cake. Reporters can now leave their notebook at home. Developers can also integrate the advanced BLE functionalities of the new S Pen into their apps later this year.
As soon as you connect the Note9 to an HDMI cable, DeX becomes active. Where you still have to click the S9 in a holder, the Note9 (just like the S4 tablet) DeX is completely internal. Connect a mouse and keyboard via cables or bleutooth and you have a PC environment at your disposal, where your phone becomes a mouspath.
