On the eve of the Note 9's release, Samsung takes us on a Galaxy factory tour

Samsung has again ever-so-slightly tweaked the design of the Note 9 from what we have on the Note 8, just like it did with the transition from the S8 to S9 earlier this year, and dedicated a whole video on how the new Note 9 is made in the factory.

The Galaxy Note 9 is available in Midnight Black, Lavender Purple, Metallic Copper with matching S Pen, and Ocean Blue with a Yellow S Pen colors, but the beauty is not just skin deep. Samsung rounded up the edges of the new flexible 6.4" AMOLED display to the "bare minimum" that would still keep its Edge design aesthetics, which should make applying Note 9 screen protectors easier compared to the Note 8. In addition, the display is seemingly brand new, too, "the series’ largest yet," and capable of busting out higher peak brightness levels and more credible color presentation than the Note 8's already excellent panel. 

The S Pen is refreshingly joyful, as we were worried that the renewed focus on the stylus that gave it Bluetooth connectivity and its own battery, would do to the black model what it did to the blue one - equip it with an S Pen in contrasting color, but luckily that was not the case. The stylus will draw in the color of its body, so the yellow one leaves a lemon-ish mark on the blue Note 9's display, and so on. In addition, unlike on the Note 8, Samsung matched the camera area to the respective body color for a more uniform look. 

As for the frame itself, it uses diamond-cut process and is "sleek and slim, and features an interplay of glossy and matte finishes that complement the Galaxy Note9’s premium design cues," quips the world's largest phone maker. As for the factory tour video above, it's pure robotic poetry.

I would love to see the Note get assembled from scratch. Or even the S as well. Gadgets/Electronics in general, are the coolest adult toys ever devised.

"The Galaxy Note 9 is available in Midnight Black, Lavender Purple, Metallic Copper with matching S Pen, and Ocean Blue with a Yellow S Pen colors..." I have only seen the blue and purple available for purchase. Where does one go to get the black or copper?
