The Galaxy Note 9 is one of the most powerful phones of 2018.
It's sleek and stylish with a colorful personality.
It may look virtually unchanged from last year's Note 8, but don't worry, it has a few tricks up its sleeve.
And by sleeve, we mean the S Pen holster, where the new S Pen lives.
The Note 9 is the only phone of Samsung's Galaxy series to feature the S Pen.
You could call it the Note 9's heart and soul.
It has a tiny, pressure-sensitive tip.
And a pressable button on the side.
Pull out the pen and this shortcut wheel pops up.
One new trick: On this screen, your "ink" matches the color of your S Pen.
Here it is in yellow.
And here's purple.
Navigating with the S Pen can help keep smudges off your screen.
Press and hold the S Pen to open an app. Click again to do another task -- you can customize this.
If you hadn't noticed, the ocean blue color Note 9 has a striking yellow S Pen.
You'll still be able to write and draw.
Or doodle, as the case may be.
Your pen versus the S Pen.
The phone's power and lock button.
Remember the Bixby Voice button? Still here!

You'll get two 12-megapixel cameras on the back.
And a fingerprint reader below the camera array.
There's an 8-megapixel camera for your selfies.
New camera AI detects what you're shooting, and adjusts the settings to take a better shot.
The icon is very small; you'll see it off to the right of this screen.
On or off: you'll have to choose in the settings.
The Note 9 keeps its headphone jack.
Every Note (except the recalled Galaxy Note 7) since the beginning.
The iPhone X has met its price match in the Galaxy Note 9. They're both two of the most expensive mainstream phones you can buy.

There's iris-unlocking on board.
Here's another look.

You can charge the Note 9 through a USB-C cable...

A closer look at the Note 9's S Pen.
The Note 9 isn't at all cheap, but it does have a ton of storage. The 128GB version starts at $1,000. The 512GB model will set you back $1,250.
