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.

Samsung has also added an adjustable aperture 12MP main camera to the Note 9, which is paired with a 12MP telephotos camera. That means an all-day battery (whatever that means, in technical terms), alongside 128GB and 512GB variants. You choose which version you want (unlocked, Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, or Sprint), then how much storage you want (128GB or 512GB), and then pick your trade-in device. All of the phones are expandable with a microSD card, but internal storage is going to be faster and more secure. It will ship with the Snapdragon 845 processor elsewhere in the world. It might not be for everyone, but on the whole it looks like Samsung's "elegant design" promise may actually have come to fruition.

Note 8 was a hit model previous year - post the debacle which Galaxy Note 7 created within the consumer mindset. Additionally, the camera app proved to be smooth and responsive when recording everything from 4K video to 960fps super slow-motion clips. Samsung announced a partnership with Spotify, which is the default music player for the Galaxy Home. It can detect if someone screws up your picture, and notifies you so you can have another go.

The camera will also offer a warning if someone blinked in a shot, or if the image is blurry.

The new S Pen is the first to include Bluetooth connectivity. But that's not all. This year, Samsung is making a big leap with the inclusion of a Bluetooth radio inside the pen. This further cements the Note's position as a business device, as we saw a hands-on demo of the S Pen being used to flick through a PowerPoint presentation. Luckily, Samsung has built supercapacitors into the new Note which charges up the Pen to 100% in just 40 seconds for an endurance of upto 30minutes.

Apart from the cooling system and the positioning of the rear fingerprint sensor, the Galaxy Note 9 and Note 8 are arranged in the same way. Opt for the $1,250 model and you get an additional 384GB of storage and 2GB of RAM.
