- Prize: Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Smartphone
The Samsung Galaxy Note9 is an Android phablet smartphone designed, developed and marketed by Samsung Electronics as part of the Samsung Galaxy Note series. It was unveiled on 9 August 2018, as the successor to the Samsung Galaxy Note8.
The Note 9 has a 6.4 inches (160 mm) 1440p Super AMOLED display with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio. The design on the front is otherwise similar to the Note 8, using an “Infinity Display” as marketed by Samsung.
The Note 9 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC in the U.S., Canada, China, Japan and Latin America or a Samsung Exynos 9810 SoC in the rest of the world. It has 128 or 512 GB storage options. The 128 GB model has 6 GB of RAM while the 512 GB has 8 GB of RAM. All models also have a microSD card slot that can support a microSD card that stores up to 512 gigabytes of data, expanding storage up to 1 terabyte with the 512 GB model.
The Note 9 has IP68 water & dust resistance and a USB-C connector that supports Samsung DeX without a dock. It has a 3.5 mm headphone jack along with AKG tuned stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos support.
The Note 9 has fast wireless charging capabilities via the Qi standard. The 4000 mAh battery battery is significantly upgraded from previous Samsung Galaxy phones; as compared to the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 which only had 3300 mAh, which was due to the battery that was in the Note 7. The 4000 mAh was previously seen in only the Active variants of the S7 and S8.
The dual-camera system has one lens with a dual-aperture (f/1.5 and f/2.4) system similar to the S9, but the setup is flipped horizontally rather than vertically, similar to the Note 8’s setup.
