Galaxy Note 9: A Recycled Design

The Note series has always been the kind that comes up with so many exciting features. Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is no exception in this regard. Upgrades are expected with this new device.



It’s not often that Samsung recycles a design almost completely, but that’s the case with the Note 9, seeing that the design language and aesthetics are essentially unchanged from its predecessor. But don’t get us wrong. The phone is still incredibly well put-together, featuring the premium and trendy glass-meets-metal design with sloped, curved edges.

This particular model sports the new Ocean Blue paint job with the yellow S Pen, which gives it a good contrast. Even though the glass finish is prone to accumulating smudges and debris, it’s nice that it can be cleaned off relatively easy.



Let’s get it out of the way: the Note 9’s display exhibits the same qualities as its predecessor! That’s not to say that we should be disappointed by the 6.4-inch Quad HD+ (1440 x 2960) Super AMOLED display, which technically is just a smidgen larger than what’s found with the Note 8.

From its right-on-the-spot ~6400K color temperature to its color accuracy in the sRGB color gamut chart, the characteristics are nearly identical to those of the Note 8! In other words, they're top notch!
