Samsung is just days away from launching the new Galaxy Note 9. However, thanks to all the leaks, we do already know almost everything about the device.
The latest leaks, however, uncover some of the previously unknown details surrounding the device. The new leak suggests that the S-Pen will have a battery which can be charged for 30 minutes of use after only 40 seconds in its storage silo. The new addition of battery confirms the fact that S-Pen will have bluetooth as well. Since the S-Pen will come with bluetooth, users will be able to use it as a remote shutter to click photos and also switch camera modes by double tapping the button. Samsung will be selling the S-Pen separately in a variety of colours.
Not only that, Samsung has also added AI to the rear camera. The AI will optimize the camera settings for different scenes (landscape, food etc) automatically and is similar to what Huawei smartphones have. It will also give advice on improving photos that have already been taken.
Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will also support DeX but the latest leak suggests that an HDMI cable and an adapter is sufficient for DeX to work. Samsung is also working on an aggressive sales campaign which includes early access to Fortnite as well as a bunch of other freebies including free $299 AKG headphones. Samsung is expected to announce the Galaxy Note 9 later this week in New York.
Some information has also leaked about the Samsung Galaxy Watch. The timepiece will be available 42mm and 46mm sizes and also in rose gold colour. The larger watch is said to offer a battery life of up to 7 days and 40 work-out modes. The smartwatch will also be equipped with an NFC module for contactless payments but it will not support Samsung’s “Magnetic Secure Transmission” technology. While the Note 9 will be announced on the 9th August, the Watch is expected to be launched at IFA on the 30th August.
