The Galaxy Note 9 is Samsung’s new flagship phone , one we met today that integrates many of the things we saw in the Note 8, while also having many of the features of the Galaxy S9 Plus .

In general, the Galaxy Note 9 is postulated as the most advanced and powerful cell phone of the company to date. Let’s see its characteristics.

Imagine that this new cell phone has the best of the Galaxy S9 Plus, as are its dual rear cameras (one with variable aperture), its Snapdragon 845 processor or Exynos 9810, its double speaker with very good sound and the ability to record video on camera slow to 960fps. In addition to this, the company gives you the option to buy it with more RAM (8GB) and has more storage (128GB base and optional 512GB). Do you want more? There is a large 4,000mAh battery (versus 3,500mAh of the S9 Plus and 3,300mAh of the Note 8) and integrates artificial intelligence to the cameras to help take better photos.

The Note 9 adds the S Pen stylus with more productivity than you can achieve in the Galaxy S9 Plus and even the  Galaxy Note 8 . For example, you can now use the S Pen as a remote control for presentations, music or the camera, among others.

The fingerprint reader is in a position similar to that of the Galaxy S9 Plus, which is better than the position of the Note 8 reader, but is not integrated into the camera module itself, making it easier to detect by touch than the S9 Plus.

Finally, the Galaxy Note 9 also brings the same desktop computer mode of the other cell phones , but does not require a dock  but only with a traditional HDMI to USB-C adapter works.

Although all this makes it superior to the Galaxy S9 Plus and Galaxy Note 8, the Galaxy Note 9 is more expensive than the others – it has a suggested price of US $ 999, while the Galaxy S9 Plus has had a suggested price of US $ 839 and the Galaxy Note 8 for US $ 849.

In addition, it is heavier and its 6.4-inch screen makes it more difficult to control with one hand in front of the Galaxy S9 Plus.

We compare their specifications and other features of the Galaxy Note 9 with the Galaxy S9 Plus and Galaxy Note 8 to better understand their differences.
