Samsung’s Galaxy Note9 the best in this Galaxy

Galaxy Note9

OK, it has happened. Samsung’s Galaxy Note9 is set to conquer this Galaxy and beyond. It is light years ahead of the Note8 it replaces and shares much in common with the Galaxy S9/Plus.

The Note series is all about showing off. What can Samsung do that is bigger, better, faster and more innovative than the rest? It is the only flagship class device with a true, productive S Pen stylus. Buyers aspire to own the best Android flagship.

Garry McGregor, Vice President, Mobile Division, Samsung Electronics Australia, said, “The Galaxy Note9 sets a new benchmark for what Australians should expect from a premium smartphone. It is built on years of innovation, refinement, and listening to our customers to deliver the features they need so they can achieve more in their day.”

“Our Galaxy Note customers are among our most loyal and enthusiastic supporters. Each year this smartphone showcases our latest innovations, which is why Note fans continue to stay dedicated to this device. We know Australians are going to love this device and we’re excited to support it with a great pre-sale offer.”

This is one smart camera

New software capabilities take the work out of getting the perfect picture.

  • Scene Optimizer: It uses intelligence to identify elements of a photo, such as a scene and subject, to automatically classify it into one of 20 categories. It instantly optimises the shot based on the category. The result is a stunning, lifelike image with bold colours and dynamic definition.
  • Flaw Detection: The first shot doesn’t always come out right. AI tell you if there is something wrong so you can take another picture without losing the moment. Immediate notification will appear if
    • the image is blurry
    • the subject blinked
    • there is a smudge on the lens
    • or there’s back light impacting the quality of the image.
  • Premium Camera: Samsung claims the Galaxy Note9 camera is the best on the market. It comes with advanced noise reduction technology and a Dual Aperture lens, which adjusts to light just like the human eye. No matter the lighting conditions the Galaxy Note9 top-tier camera delivers a crystal-clear shot.
