Now for the initial reviews!


Mashable reviewer Raymond Wong gave it a score of 4.5 out of 5. Plus it’s part of the Mashable Choice. Wong writes that Samsung was able to tip the scale in their favor (for now) with a lot of great internal upgrades that affects everyday use such as a phone’s performance. And how they’re able to keep innovating the S Pen too. He also notes that the display is awesome and content looks very clear.


CNET’s Jessica Dolcourt gave this device a score of 9 out of 10 too. She notes that the Galaxy Note 9 specs are top-notch and considers it as “an everything phone”. She was able to test the Coral Blue and Lavender Purple where the colors boldly stand out.


Engadget’s Cherlynn Low gave a 92 out of 100 for the new phablet. She was more impressed by Samsung’s new Flaw Detection feature that immediately notifies if someone blinked on the photo and such. The device is also a multitasking beast according to her with its Snapdragon 845 combined with the 6GB RAM.


Finally, BGR’s Zach Epstein points out that while most changes from the Note 8 to the Note 9 are great, there’s one great con: it’s expensive. Really, really expensive.

Galaxy Note 9: launching early?

Galaxy Note 9: launching early?

Yup, you read that right!

The rumor mill ain’t sleeping and new info is running down like waterfalls!  Not to worry as we’ve got all the latest key info below:


How early?


SamMobile reports that the late July or early August target launch may get a go signal as the tech giant started its production two months earlier this year compared to the Note 8They’re also  fast-tracking the process to get ready to announce the Galaxy X next year which we will discuss in future blogs for sure! 😉


New additions for the Note 9?


We got the first leaked photo of the Note 9 courtesy of leaker Ice Universe. Overall, it looks just the same as the previous but with smaller bezels in this case.

The Note 9 is rumored to have a 6.38-inch Super AMOLED display and Super Speed Dual Pixel camera with an 8MP front camera and dual 12MP rear cameraIt will also be faster as its powered with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845.

It has been reported there may be an option of 8GB ram and a whopping 512GB storage! Great for those who love taking pictures and most especially hi-res photos! But this may just be available in selected markets (hopefully US is one of them!). And there would be added cost… there always is! The standard Galaxy Note 9 model will have 64GB storage.

The Galaxy Note 9 will come equipped with a 3,850mAh battery and rumors suggest a new color: Teddy Brown. TechAdvisor is putting an estimate of £869 or around $ 1,000 for the upcoming device.

What’s the same?


We will still see a physical fingerprint sensor since most of the new or revolutionary upgrades may be are saved for the Galaxy X. The Note 9 will still have a micro-SD slot which can add 512GB storage–making it the first phone to have 1TB in total.


Can we rewind on the price?


Yep, $1,000. But if your heart’s set on the Note 9, we’ll help keep it protected without adding another dent on your wallet!
