Galaxy Note 9Sorry all for the site update frequency this week – 5yo entered kindergarten on Tuesday, things have been oddly chaotic. Now on with the Note 9.

We’ll assume you know phones – here’s what’s new and neat.

  • Bluetooth stylus. Allows air gestures, slide switching, remote detonation, perhaps remote shutter for photos
  • 4000mAh battery which will last all day, which is what every phone has said about their huge battery since 2000mAh was the goal to reach for
  • 21% larger than the Note 8
  • Slightly better dual cameras
  • Up to 8GB of RAM that someone is currently saying “Android doesn’t need 8GB of RAM to function” while downloading their 2.1 gigabyte app update. Looks like there’s a 6GB option as well.
  • Up to 512GB internal storage so you don’t suddenly find yourself out of space when you’re recording 4K
  • Supposedly really loud, may be turned all the way to 11
  • Android Oreo 8.1
  • Some form of cooling that’s new
  • Stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos
