August 9 in new York, Samsung presented the eighth generation phablet with a stylus Galaxy Note 9. We are already familiar with the device, but what is the novelty differs from the previous version? Everyone will ask this question when the Note 9 will be on sale.
To simplify the choice, Samsung has published an infographic comparing the characteristics of Note 8 and Note 9. Mostly the improvements are in hardware. Updated processor, camera, memory and battery. New functions were acquired by the S Pen stylus.
As for software, the situation is strange — Note 8 shell based on Android 7.1.1, and Note 9 on Android 8.1. It would be very disappointing if last year’s flagship will remain on Nougat when it is time to move on to the Pie.
