Everything You Need to Know About the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 (Updating)

Remember all those leaks? They are all completely accurate from the looks of things. The key points are that it has a 6.4-inch end-to-end Infinity Display, with the curved Edge display from the looks of things. So while you may struggle to tell the Note 8 and Note 9 apart (at a distance, at least) we can't complain about that. It'll cost you $1,000 if you want the base model, but the upgraded one is even more wildly expensive. There's an upgraded phone with 512GB of storage and 8GB of RAM. Samsung promises the processor is 33 per cent faster than what came before. Right this minute we've got a gallery here with the various wallpapers included in the smartphone, now freely available to all users who wish to load said images on their phone in celebration, anticipation, or just for the fun of it.

Pics Samsung is allegedly mulling ending its Galaxy Note line, now that nearly every smartphone on the planet is larger than the original Note - which was so absurdly large at launch it was dubbed the first "phablet".

Samsung's going big on intelligent systems and AI too, much like every other big-name phone company, and has added intelligent systems to the main camera. If the image is out of focus, or if the device detects that a subject in the frame has blinked at the moment of capture, it will notify you of this.

The camera will also offer a warning if someone blinked in a shot, or if the image is blurry. But that's not all.

Under standard usage, such as LT, Bluetooth, messaging and some music streaming the battery can last up to 80 hours, which eliminates the need for daily charging. Samsung showcased this last one on stage in real time, showing us that there's no limit to the size of the presentation itself.

He says the letter emphasized the importance of working together on counter-terrorism, legislative talks and cultural exchanges. In addition to tensions over election meddling, the two countries are also at odds over Syria and Ukraine.

The Galaxy Note 7 was an unmitigated disaster for the South Korean company, which was forced to recall millions of the handsets when battery issued caused a small number of them to combust.

That loyalty means there's an appetite for the Note 9 even if it's got an eyebrow-raising price. DeX now works with a simple USB-C to HDMI adapter.

It may be the hottest gadget in town right now, but Samsung has promised that its new phone will absolutely not catch fire like one of its ill-fated predecessors. There's no word on United Kingdom pricing, but those dongles are $50 (£39) in the States.

If you don't see it, slide your finger up the screen to view the list of apps available within the launcher. The starting price of $1,000 is an increase from the Note 8, but on par with Apple's top-of-the-line iPhone X. The Note 9 will get double the storage, at 128 gigabytes, compared with typical high-end phones, including the iPhone X. Samsung will also sell a 512-gigabyte version for power users for $1,250.
