The time for rumors is almost over, Samsung unveils the Galaxy Note9 in two days. Still, these leaked images that detail some of the novelties in the new flagship are hard to pass up.
The new S Pen is Bluetooth-enabled so it can remotely trigger the camera, change the slide in your presentation or do something else depending on the app (as expected). Other than that, the stylus works as before with the screen being able to detect 4,096 levels of pressure.

The camera will use the dual aperture trick of the Galaxy S9 phones, but it seems that Samsung will sprinkle some AI on top. It will automatically adjust image settings based on the scene and will warn you about blurry shots or if someone blinked (hardly a new feature, but it is now AI-powered).

The Galaxy Note9 will feature an updated DeX mode, which requires a single cable an HDMI cable, no need for a full dock. Perhaps, the new flagship will borrow the dual screen feature of the Galaxy Tab S4 10.5 that lets you use both the external monitor and the handsets own display.

Finally, another report on the pricing, this time for the UK. The base Note9 with 128GB of storage will reportedly cost 900 while the top 512GB unit will be 1,100. The euro prices were reported as 1,050 and 1,250, which sounds about right.
