Who doesn’t just love the South Korean phone makers and their wonderful line of Galaxy smartphones?  They are just so innovative and consistent with their Galaxy line of phones and the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 attests to it. A common feature of the Galaxy Note series is the stylized pen that comes with every Galaxy Note.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9, released August 2018, doesn’t disappoint the tech-savvy individual as it delivers on all expectations as is expected of a latest Samsung Galaxy Note. It features the traditional large screen size associated with the Samsung Galaxy Note series which apparently makes the line a phablet- an hybrid of a phone and a tablet.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 improves in certain specs of its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. They both share specifications like the front and back glass that avvomonies the aluminum frame and the Super  AMOLED capacitive touchscreen. They both also have an SD card slot that supports up to 512GB of memory. These among other features consistent with phablets of their kind are found in both phones like the camera with the main camera having a resolution of 12 megapixels and the selfie camera having a resolution of 8 megapixels.

Now to the differences! First and foremost, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 comes pre-installed with Android 8.1 Oreo and is up-gradable to Android 9.0 Pie while the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 comes pre-installed with Android 7.1.1 Nougat and is up-gradable to Android 8.0 Oreo. Quite a difference!!

There is also a slight difference in their screen sizes. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 stands at 6.3 inches and the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 seems to be interested in maintaining the status quo as it stands at a little higher 6.4 inches.

While the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 might not seem to be that much of an upgrade except for the upgraded Operating System, it really is a nice phone and worth the effort.
