Samsung Electronics officially rolls out Galaxy Note 9 in 56 countries

Samsung Galaxy A8 Star With Infinity Display, Snapdragon 660 SoC Launched in India: Price, Specifications

The Note 9, which was unveiled by Samsung in NY on August 9, also includes other upgrades over the year-old Note 8 model it supersedes including a larger 4,000mAh battery which Samsung says will provide all-day use without a recharge, a faster processor for improved performance and a microSD card slot that will handle storage cards of to 512GB.

Following this initial rollout, the South Korean tech giant plans to bring the Note 9 to 120 markets by early September, and embark on expanded marketing activities, the company said.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has some similarities to the Note 8 when it comes to design.

The smartphone features a 5-inch qHD (540x960 pixels) TFT display. This makes the display a little bigger than the previous release.

Galaxy Note 9 is equipped with Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 845 CPU. This is the same processor that the Galaxy S9 and S9+ have.

The camera arrangement on the Galaxy A8 Star houses two sensors on the rear - a primary 16-megapixel f/1.7 lens and another 24-megapixel snapper for depth-sensing.

Verizon slowed California firefighters' internet speed during wildfires
It - wrongly, by its own admission - slowed down the connection because of the volume of data, not the specific type. Firefighters tackling one of the worst ever brush fires in the U.S. had their mobile data cut due to overuse.

The S-pen was first released in 2011. Ocean Blue is the hero colour, and it comes with a yellow S-pen for differentiation. For example, the S Pen can be used to switch slides during a presentation or as a remote shutter for the camera. It can also be connected to an external desktop monitor using an optional HDMI connector and the Note 9's Samsung DeX desktop feature, which allows users to do their work on a larger screen.

The smartphone went up for pre-orders a day after its launch.

The smartphone is powered by an Exynos 7570 processor and 2,600mAh battery.

Of course, these colors are not exactly new colors but it is nice to see Samsung adding more colors to their devices as the last few have been offered with a more muted range of colors.

The price tag on the 512 GB edition is 1.35 million won (US$1,200), while that of entry level 128 GB stands at 1.09 million won.
