The S Pen also makes a return - only this time, it's equipped with Bluetooth LE.

The base model of the Galaxy Note 9 will cost an eye-watering Rs. 67900, which features 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, while the 8GB RAM + 512GB storage model will cost Rs. 84900. The leakster somehow always manages to get his hands on valuable information about upcoming smartphones and he just leaked that Galaxy S10 is being codenamed as "Beyond" and that it will be available in the following color variants: black, white, green, silver and pink. It will be available to buy via Samsungs online store and Flipkart as well as across offline retail partners. Samsung held an event in Delhi where they announced Galaxy Note 9 along with Galaxy Watch. The phone has a 6.4-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED display and thankfully with no notch. If you were hoping for phone makers to come to their senses and slash prices in the future, you've got another thing coming. The rear of the device houses a primary 16MP module with f/1.7 aperture and a 5MP secondary module with f/1.9 aperture and LED flash.

The India variant of the Galaxy Note 9 gets Samsungs flagship Exynos 9810 chipset.


"Towards the latter part of September, we will see the first Note 9 512GB devices becoming available", said Hume.

The Galaxy Note 9 also features a Bluetooth-enables S Pen and variable aperture dual camera system.

Samsung's Galaxy Watch was officially announced a few weeks ago, and is already shaping up to be the go-to smartwatch for Android users.


As regards the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus, the Pie update is expected to start seeding out as an OTA sometime in January 2019 - a beta could arrive in December 2018 unless Samsung screws up again - but that's a far lot away.

If you have an older S Pen sitting around from a phone like the Galaxy Note 8, it'll technically work with the Note 9, but it won't fit inside the phone. It features a dual-camera set-up (12-megapixel + 12 megapixel) and delivers near-excellent results. We can find a scene optimizer which uses image recognition to detect the objects which are present in the shot which is before adjusting the camera settings.
