Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Leak Confirms S Pen Features, DeX Mode over HDMI Cable, More

The Galaxy Note 9 leaks just don’t stop. After the handset’s marketing video leaked, the marketing materials of Note 9 have also leaked that detail the new S Pen and camera features of the handset.

As previous leaks had claimed, the Galaxy Note 9’s S Pen will feature Bluetooth connectivity. The physical button on the stylus can be used to trigger the camera, switch camera modes, change slide presentations, or do more depending on the app you are in. The stylus also continues to feature 4,096 pressure points for improved accuracy.

The camera marketing slide points to the Galaxy Note 9 featuring the same camera modules at the rear as the Galaxy S9+. Apart from Dual Aperture though, Samsung has also infused AI features into its camera app that can automatically detect blur and shakes. Additionally, the camera app will also be able to use AI to switch camera mode depending on the scene you are trying to capture.

Lastly, the Galaxy Note 9 will feature an updated DeX mode that can be triggered by simply connecting an HDMI cable to the handset. The Galaxy S9 and previous flagship Samsung handsets required the use of a DeX dock for the same. This makes the DeX mode on the Note 9 more useful, though it remains to be seen if there will be a notable performance impact due to the lack of an active cooling or not without the DeX dock.

The marketing materials have also revealed the Note 9’s pricing in the United Kingdom. The base variant of the handset with 128GB of storage space will cost £900, while the 512GB variant will set one back by £1,100. The 512GB variant of the handset might also come with 8GB RAM for improved multitasking performance.
