And, in fact, while the entry-level price of the Note 9 is £30 more expensive than the £869 price of the Note 8, the base-level storage has been boosted from 64GB to 128GB. All of the phones are expandable with a microSD card, but internal storage is going to be faster and more secure.
The Galaxy Note 9 comes with a 6.4-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED "Infinity Display" with a resolution of 2960 x 1440. The adjustable aperture module debuted on the Galaxy S9, and was one of the only upgrades over the GS8. In all honesty, these are the areas which have changed least since the Note 8. That was a real hand-stretcher.
"Samsung makes the best performing Android devices in the world and the Note 9 represents a real revolution for mobile gaming", Mr Sweeney said. "But it isn't likely to get people to consider the Note for the very first time".
Unlike any other previous Note iteration, this year's S Pen is powered by a Bluetooth Low Energy module and a supercapacitor. Although, it seems a bit underutilized. You can do things like opening the camera with just a long press of the button, toggle between the front-facing and rear cameras with a double click or take a photo by single-clicking when in the camera UI.
Its new Bluetooth S Pen, though, is where it really stands out from competing devices.

The Perseids are so-called because the point from which they appear, known as the radiant, lies in the constellation of Perseus. There's no need to look in any direction - the shooting stars should be visible in every part of the sky, weather permitting.
Samsung also enhanced the gadget's batteries so it can now be used for an entire day without needing to be recharged - a common headache for cell phone users.
With all-day performance, a new S Pen and intelligent camera, nothing keeps up with your life like Galaxy Note9. It recharges in less than a minute, too.
Being a big phone release from the biggest Android manufacturer, the Note 9 will have plenty of third-party accessories like screen protectors, rugged cases and vehicle mounts for your employees to use to keep the phone itself safe. The phone was launched on August 9. Indeed, Samsung has reserved a spot in the smart speaker race by putting its Galaxy Home in the battlefield, which at this point is largely dominated by the Google Home and Amazon Echo.
The basic model will cost £899, while a version with more storage and memory will be £1,099.
As Spotify explained further, it is always looking to work with all partners to better the ease of use of its service across the board: "With deeper partnerships comes the ability to integrate deeper to create a more frictionless user experience", it said.
The Chinese rival made much of its own flagship phone's machine learning abilities when it launched in March.
