Samsung launches latest edition of its Note series phones in India

Gurgaon (NCR) August 23 2018:  With their global President and CEO D.J.  Koh present, Samsung launched the latest edition  -- Galaxy  Note 9  --  in its flagship series in India at an event here yesterday.
The S series and the Note series are parallel streams of premium phones that the Korean   device maker  has been launching annually.
"Since Samsung entered the country in 1995, we have grown together with India and we are now the most beloved mobile brand,” said Koh. Having recently opened a factory in Noida in the Indian national capital region, with the capacity to roll out 120 million phones a year -- that's 14,000 a minute -- Samsung is vigorously promoting the 'Make in India' ideal. Koh added that this has now grown to 'Make for India' -- and 'Make for the World in India' .. a connection underlined by his smart new yellow Modi-style jacket.  He also let  the audience in the launch event into a culinary secret. He comes to India as often as he can for  its masala dosa.
Enhanced  S Pen
The new Galaxy Note 9 builds on the legacy of this S Pen-enhanced  device aimed at  those who want to  work and play with the phone.  New  productivity features include  remote  control options for the Bluetooth controlled S Pen which includes the ability to  click photos including sefies remotely, much as one would with a timer in old style cameras. Also enhanced  is the Samsung  DeX feature, that allows the phone to  link to PCs and seamlessly display phone content.
"Galaxy Note 9 combines the power of a laptop, media streaming device, power bank, external hard drive, gaming console, DSLR camera and a selfie stick” , said Asim Warsi, Senior Vice President, Mobile Business, Samsung India.
The battery in this large 6.4-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED Infinity Display device  is 4000 mAh, good for a full day's work. It  is available with two internal storage options , 128 GB or 512 GB. And with the ability to insert a microSD  of another 512 GBG,  Galaxy Note 9 is 1TB -ready.
Flaw detection
A new feature of the   camera  ( 8 MP selfie; 12 MP + 12 MP rear)  is  flaw detection . If the first shot doesn’t  come out right,  it lets users know, so they can take another picture without losing the moment. An immediate notification will appear if the image is blurry, the subject blinked, there is a smudge on the lens, or there’s backlight impacting the quality of the image.
Galaxy Note 9 will be available in India starting  tomorrow at Rs  67,900 and  Rs 84,900 for 128 GB and 512 GB variants, respectively.
