Samsung has had a tough year in the mobile phone sector so far. Samsung's smartphone sales were the driving force behind his financial success not too long ago. Recently, however, the company's thriving chip business was the show's star as smartphone sales began to flutter. Samsung's results in the last quarter were even pulled down a bit because of the company's flagship phones Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 +. As we've discussed countless times here on the website, the latest Galaxy S phones are fantastic, but they're not significant enough compared to last year's models, and consumers are reluctant to upgrade.
With Samsung's Flagship After the smartphone sales slumped so sharply ̵
The striking similarities between Samsung's Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S8 over the past few years have been seen as much of the reason that sales have been so low. The S9 and S9 + look just like the S8 and S8 +, and they do not offer convincing new features. Instead, they have a decent increase in specifications and performance and a better camera. These upgrades were not enough to persuade consumers to upgrade, and it's not very hard to understand why.
Rumors and leaks in recent months have painted a picture of the Galaxy Note 9, which puts the phone in exactly the same position as the S9 and S9 +: it was basically a Galaxy Note 8 with the specifications of the Galaxy S9 + , As we approach the unveiling of the phone, however, we keep seeing new details that suggest that the Galaxy Note 9 will have at least some notable new features.
Apart from a number of new colors, leaks have shown that the Note 9 comes with a brand new S Pen incorporating a Bluetooth radio. This should allow some nifty new tricks that did not have a touch phone yet. And on Friday we learned of another new feature that will be unique in the Galaxy Note 9: DeX Next-Generation Support
Gadget Blog WinFuture reports that the Galaxy Note 9 will be Samsung's first smartphone will support Samsung's DeX desktop experience without the need for any special accessories. DeX, as you may recall, is the feature that allows Samsung's flagships to provide a desktop computing experience when connected to a monitor and keyboard with a special accessory. The first-generation model was called DeX Station, and earlier this year, a new, upgraded DeX Pad was launched alongside the Galaxy S9.
According to this new report, the Galaxy Note 9 will be able to deliver a desktop experience without the need for any of these accessories. Instead, any DisplayPort-enabled USB-C adapter can be used to connect the Note 9 to a monitor. The keyboard can be connected wirelessly, and the Note 9's display can be used as a trackpad.
DeX is one of the main features that sets Samsung handsets apart from competing products, and this new iteration of DeX is definitely a step in the right direction. Samsung will unveil the Galaxy Note 9 on August 9, and the phone is due to go on sale two weeks later on August 24th.
