Samsung has just launched its flagship phone Galaxy Note 9 officially in Pakistan. The reveal of the phone was made at the Barclays Center in New York last month.
The massive phone is as good as it should be but costs a shocking Rs. 123,500 for 128GB version and Rs. 148,506 for 512GB storage.
Apart from revealing the phone, Samsung showed a bunch of new stuff and announced some exciting things that are part of the Galaxy Note 9. If you already don’t know about the phone’s features and updates, We cover everything the Korean Smartphone giant has added to the new phablet.
Features and updates on the new Galaxy Note 9
Galaxy Note 9 brings with it a host of new features. The best update is its new S Pen. Here is all you need to know about the S Pen which is the primary update of the new phone.
Samsung Galaxy Note’s standout feature has always been its S Pen. With the new Galaxy Note 9, the pen is better than ever before. The new S Pen now relies on Bluetooth low energy (the pen has a built-in Bluetooth antenna).
The new pen’s features will significantly influence how you use the Note 9. You can still navigate, draw, create live messages and do whatever you could do on the previous Samsung Note’s but now the S Pen’s button comes with Bluetooth actions that let you trigger things within apps.
Samsung has even added a settings menu for these triggers that you can customize to suit your needs. For example, if you now long-press the S Pen button, you can open the camera app, and if you double press the S Pen button you can change between the front and rear camera modes. A single click on the button takes the photo.
This feature lets you take long-range shutter shots thanks to Bluetooth on board now.
The S Pen also uses very little energy now and lets you recharge it within a minute after you put it back into the phone. Some other things you can do with the pen includes playing or moving to the next track inside a music app, and control powerpoint to advance slides.
Samsung will allow developers to play with this new technology which means a lot of your apps on the phone will now be controllable using the S Pen button.
