Samsung this week unveiled the Galaxy Note9, with the largest display yet on a Samsung smartphone, and greater functionality in the S Pen stylus.
Samsung says it is designed for customers who need a device that supports both personal and professional needs, and that it powers productivity on-the-go from day to night, without compromising on security.
“The impact mobile technology has had on business in the last decade is extraordinary and continuously evolving, driven by converging technologies that fuel innovation,” said Craige Fleisher, Vice President of Integrated Mobility for Samsung South Africa. “Samsung has always been at the forefront of this transformation – a movement that we call the Next Mobile Economy. In this mobile-first world, all companies are challenged to rethink the way they do business.”
The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will be available for pre-order from August 9 and general availability on August 21, 2018. It will be offered in Midnight Black, Metallic Copper with matching S-Pen and Ocean Blue, with a yellow S Pen.
Samsung provided the following information on the features and functionality of the Note 9:
· S Pen: Galaxy Note9 introduces the new S Pen with remote control delivering capabilities that empower the user to do more. The S Pen features Bluetooth Low-Energy (BLE) that makes it even more powerful: you can use your S Pen as a clicker to move through a PowerPoint presentation, without the need for a mouse when in DeX mode. And new customised clicks make it easy to quickly launch an app or take a photo.
