Samsung: Galaxy Note 9 will be the "only device you need" for work, play, everything else

Samsung: Galaxy Note 9 will be the
A couple of days ago, Samsung released three video teasers to promote its upcoming August 9 Unpacked event, where the Galaxy Note 9 will be officially unveiled. While these teasers have been quickly shared on the web, Samsung's official statement accompanying them went largely unnoticed.

Here's the statement in full:


As you can see, Samsung doesn't mention the name of its upcoming flagship phone. But it already (indirectly) confirmed that this would be a new Note featuring a Samsung-specific S Pen stylus. And, since the handset succeeds the Note 8 of 2017, it's almost certain that its official name will be Galaxy Note 9.

Like Galaxy Notes of the past, the Note 9 should indeed be suitable for work and play - thanks in no small part to the S Pen stylus, which adds functionalities that most other flagship phones simply can't offer, since they have no styluses at all.

Of course, it remains to be seen if the new Note will be the "only device you need to manage work, play and everything in between," as Samsung says. We'll just have to wait for the day(s) when we can thoroughly test the phone to properly assess Samsung's statement. Until that happens, all this is nothing more than PR talk. But, hey, all companies rely on this when presenting new devices, aren't they?

Why do you care what the note 9 is, you hate Samsung and you have no intention of getting one anyway. It will be the best of the year.

"Note 9 will be the only device you need for work, play, everything else". Hell yeah, true dat! Note9 is the best there is... unlike those worthless Apple iTrash phones that deserve to be used as skeet shooting plates.

You are obsessed with the iPhone, that’s why you brought it up in a Note 9 article. The Note 9, or any other Samsung device, will never be enough for you. So sad for you. #realtalk #bro #mydude #willthenote9endupinthedrawerlikethenote8did

Shut up, before the iphone x released you were spazzing about how great it would be, along with your 3 other accounts that magically disappeared. Then you looked like a real idiot predicting all these features that were going to be on it only to realize how wrong you were when 95 percent of those features didn't make it to the X

"only device you need to manage work, play and everything in between," This statement will only be true if it doesn't get screen burn in like my Note 4 & Note 8 did.

How the hell did you do that on a modern device?

I'm on my phone a lot. You can literally see the Instagram feed layout in the display.

That sounds horrible, luckily i have X and Apple figured out how to prevent this

Apple takes off the shelf, Samsung designed AMOLED displays. The only "designing" they did is specifying the size of the display, and the notch.

That's crazy. I don't use a single app long enough to ever have that problem but that's tough. End of the day it's going to happen to every oled panel though with the same usage.

I'm on my phone all day, and unless your leaving the screen in the eaxct same.licsl arrangement for an absurd amount of hours I don't see how you got screenburn. Either that or your brain is just straight up fried

1. You're, not your 2. It happens. I'd share a pic but PA doesn't use Disqus

OLED will never ever be immune to burn-in. It is part of the technology. The next step will be micro-LED that Samsung is working on.

Apple already fixed this with X

The X can still get burn in.

In normal use very unlikely. One guy tried it and it took 500 hours to have same screen on, for comparison he did that for Note 8 too and it was four times worse.

I just googled 'is the earth flat' and several guys say it is...

You mean the test where the iphone began showing minor symptoms at 17 hours? There is no denying the screen holds up much better than the one on the Note 8, but it's still not immune to burn in.

In normal use, it's extremely unlikely on ANY of the phones you mention.

The X still gets burn in.

No, they didn't. Their display is exactly as susceptible to burn in as Samsung's, because they're the exact same tech.
