The big point of difference with any Samsung Not smartphone is the incorporation of the S Pen it’s become a favourite of among power users.

Another big difference with a premium Not smartphone has always been the camera.
The new Galaxy Note9 builds on Samsung’s strength in developing camera technology for smartphones, with new capabilities that take the work out of getting the perfect picture.

Flaw Detection: The first shot doesn’t always come out right, but the Galaxy Note9 lets users know if there’s something wrong, so they can take another picture without losing the moment.
