Galaxy Note 9: Key Specs

Boasting of a design much similar to its predecessor, the Galaxy Note 9 now sports a 6.4-inch Quad HD+ AMOLED screen. It is powered by the Snapdragon 845 processor (and Exynos 9810 for some markets), coupled with either 6GB RAM and 128GB storage, or 8GB RAM and 512GB storage.

Coming to the optics department, the cameras on the Galaxy Note 9 are exactly the same as the Galaxy S9 Plus. This means you get a dual rear-camera module, with a primary 12MP wide-angle lens (f/1.5 – f/2.4 mode) and a secondary 12MP telephoto lens (f/2.4). There’s also the 8MP AF sensor, with an f/1.7 aperture on the front.

The Galaxy Note 9 now comes with a new S-Pen, which is no longer just a smart stylus but also supports Bluetooth connectivity and a battery. You can now use the S-Pen to click pictures, control music, play/ pause YouTube videos,

The Galaxy Note 9 comes with a larger 4,000mAh battery pack as compared to its predecessor, along with a USB-C charging port and 3.5mm audio jack in tow. It’s running Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box. To sum it all up, you can check out the key specs of the Galaxy Note 9 right here:
