Samsung had introduced the Galaxy Note 9 yesterday in New York, and for those who live in Canada, well, here's more info about the device. Samsung had introduced only one Galaxy Note 9, but there are some differences from market to market when it comes to specs, as the design is the same for all variants. In this article, we'll also talk about availability of the Galaxy Note 9 in Canada, for those of you who are interested.
Having said that, it's worth noting that the phone is made out of metal and glass, and that it sports two cameras on the back, along with a fingerprint scanner, and a heart rate sensor. The phone's display is curved, while the device sports really thin bezels, and comes with an all-new S Pen stylus which now offers Bluetooth connectivity.
