The Samsung Galaxy Note9 is a large smartphone that uses either a Snapdragon 845 or Exynos 9810 octo-core processor (depending on region) and sports a 6.4" Super AMOLED display with a pixel density of 556 ppi. The phone comes with either 128GB or 512GB of internal storage, and there's also a microSD slot. The Note9 has two cameras: one wide-angle (26mm equiv.) with dual apertures (F1.5/F2.4) and a telephoto (52mm equiv.). Both are stabilized. The front camera has a resolution of 8MP and an equivalent focal length of 25mm. The Note9's Live Focus feature lets you sharpen or blur backgrounds digitally, while a Scene Optimizer automatically selects the right color balance for your subject. A 'flaw detection' feature warns you if your subject blinks or if there's motion blur. It will also inform the user if the lens needs to be cleaned or if HDR should be turned on. The updated S-Pen can be used to take photos remotely.
