And a Dual Aperture lens adjusts to light just like the human eye with Samsung boasting that no matter the lighting conditions, Galaxy Note 9's top-tier camera delivers a crystal-clear shot. If you want the spiffing 512GB version, that'll be £1099. It's getting a minimum of 128GB of storage, 6GB of RAM, and still keeps the microSD slot.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is finally official, and the spec rumors were pretty much on point. As with the S9 it has the variable dual-aperture system (f/1.5 and f/2.4) created to mimic the human eye, a 2x optical zoom on the secondary lens, and a dual-pixel sensor for super slow-mo video recording. And the odd, three-legged, cauldron-like design is sure to set it apart from the Amazon Echo and Apple HomePod devices of the world. It can detect if someone screws up your picture, and notifies you so you can have another go. The carrier's Galaxy Forever plan also allows upgrades any time to the latest Galaxy after a year of payments. The S Pen, which now supports Bluetooth Low Energy, is just a touch heavier as well. But that's not all. You can control the camera with a press of the S Pen button, and there will be an SDK for developers to tie into the button in order to add new functionality.
One of the biggest bonus features of all Note phones is the iconic S Pen which, over the last few years, has been radically advanced with a more accurate nib and extra features.
Under standard usage, such as LT, Bluetooth, messaging and some music streaming the battery can last up to 80 hours, which eliminates the need for daily charging. The Galaxy Watch will also be much better at keeping tabs on your sleeping habits, but as you might imagine, this would imply you'd want sleep with your smartwatch on.
Sprint is offering the Galaxy Note 9 at 50 percent off with a Sprint Flex Lease with payments of $20.83 per month. Frankly said, you don't need anymore than that on your wrist. Unfortunately this needs to be one of Samsung's special dongles, rather than any old adaptor you can purchase online.
Tucked inside its glass and metal body is an upgraded 10nm 64-bit Octa-core processor, up to 8GB of RAM and a giant 4,000mAh battery which Samsung says is the largest ever on a flagship Galaxy phone.
If these mega-featured smartphones are overwhelming or unnecessary for you - you might be more interested in the iconic Nokia 8110 banana phone, available to pre-order today at Carphone Warehouse, EE, O2, Vodafone and other key retailers and e-tailers for a RRP of £69...
