Samsung Galaxy Note 9 runs Android 8.1 Oreo for now, and ships with a Bluetooth S-Pen with 4096 pressure sensitivity levels. This S-Pen together with the larger 4,000 mAh “all-day” battery  are some of the highlights mentions in the press release. Memory and storage capacities are also impressive with up to 8GB RAM, and 512GB storage that equivalent to what you’d find in a decent laptop. The phone is also compatible with Samsung Dex to offer a PC-like experience when connected to a larger display.
