Galaxy Note 9 Release Date, Price And Specifications

After a huge success of Galaxy Note 8, Samsung has decided to launch its new model of Galaxy Note 9 on August 9, 2018 with the same specs as that of Galaxy S9 with just added redesigned S Pen stylus so as to get a Note handset.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Features Available (RAM / STORAGE / CAMERA / COLOR, etc.)

Galaxy Note 9 is expected to have a display of 6.38 inch, bigger than that of the Note 8’s 6.32 inch, with a QHD+ Super AMOLED display. Moreover, as per the latest information the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will offer 64GB, 128GB, 256GB, 512GB variant and upto 1TB of expandable storage via micro SD storage. The Galaxy Note 9 comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. Galaxy Note 8 had a feature of 6GB RAM but since other companies came up with a storage of 8GB RAM, it is estimated that it will have 6GB of memory as its standard configuration but that an 8GB option will be available too.

With the improvisation of camera, it will have a pretty clear picture with dual 12MP rear  camera stacked vertically with variable aperture in low-light settings and multi frame noise reduction and a 8 MP Front facing camera. Samsung has been eyeing a larger capacity battery , thus the Galaxy Note 9 will have an increase from 3,300 mAh to 4,000 mAh, which is considered as the big feature of this model.

While the design might not change, the available colors could be slightly different from the previous version with blue, copper, silver, violet and black as the options. Besides all the specs, the S Pen, among the greatest features, could be getting some more big upgrades. The main is the addition of Bluetooth, with  source saying that it could allow you to unlock the Note 9 with the S Pen and also use it as a long-range self-timer and also, S Pen will be able to control music, operate the camera shutter system remotely, and launch apps and features of your choice.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Price

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 price is likely it’s to be expensive. The Galaxy Note 8 sold for $929 (£869, AU$1,499) at launch and we can’t expect Samsung lowering the price for the Note 9 after Apple has pushed prices even higher for the smart phones. The calculated value for Samsung Galaxy Note 9  512GB version at £1,150 in the UK (around $1,500 / AU$2,000) which would  certainly be the priciest model, so if this is accurate, buyers should  be able to get it for less money for less storage.

BlackBerry Key2 Review

BlackBerry KEY2 Review (Disappointing Mobile From BlackBerry)

The display is larger and keyboards are smaller of BlackBerry KEY2. The Key2 is similar dimensions to the Key1.  Let’s find out more for BlackBerry Key2 Review here.

BlackBerry KEY2 Review in Detail:

Key2’s 4.5-inch LCD panel and trimmed out some of the top bezel. This allows for a larger keyboard, separated by a row of capacitive buttons that now light up only when the phone is being actively used. There is no visual noise and has cleaner look handset for it. It has an all-aluminum body, which looks dapper in the black configuration. It has .5-millimeter headphone jack as well as its soft-touch backing. The size of the keycaps is increased by 20 percent, making for a roomier space for your thumbs to move. The Key2’s keyboard can do so many things. It provides a great way of scrolling through web pages without obscuring or smudging the display.

There is 52 key in the keyboard which includes most common keys with a spacebar and camera shutter. The keyboard has a new key labeled “sym” and called the Speed key. BlackBerry includes quite a few security-focused apps, starting with DTEK, where your overall security is gauged by the Key2 based on the apps and permissions set. Other apps in the BlackBerry include the Hub where texts, emails, Slack, and other messages are all grouped together, a password locker, redactor, file explorer, information locker, FM radio, and device search.  Key2 does maintain that other BlackBerry standby long battery life. It has an Oreo device with this great battery life which is quite impressive. There are two 12-megapixel cameras on the back with support for Google Lens image search, a portrait mode, and a 4K video recording. The camera app allows for full manual control.

At the bottom of the phone, you’ll find two speakers of middling sound quality and they definitely won’t fill a whole room as a speakerphone. They flank the USB-C charging port, which supports Quick Charge 3.0 and headphone jack.

BlackBerry KEY2 specification:

  • 4.5-inch IPS display at 1620 x 1080 resolution, 434ppi, and 3:2 ratio
  • Dual 12Mp rear-facing cameras (up to 4K video recording 24 / 30fps)
  • 8MP front-facing camera
  • Snapdragon 660 CPU
  • 6GB RAM
  • 64 or 128GB storage options (with microSD expansion)
  • 35-key QWERTY keyboard
  • Android 8.1 Oreo (with BlackBerry app suite)

Disappointing things on BlackBerry Key2:

  • Lower-end chipset than competitors
  • Keyboard gestures are not very good
  • Cameras are unimpressive
  • The small screen is frustrating to use
