Samsung on Thursday finally took the wraps off of its newest flagship smartphone, the Galaxy Note 9. Of course anyone who follows any tech news whatsoever knows that there wasn't much wrapping to take off at that point. Literally every single detail surrounding the new Galaxy Note 9 leaked in the weeks and months leading up to Thursday's big Unpacked press conference. We knew what it looked like, we know all about the changes compared to last year's Galaxy Note 8, we knew about the phone's specs, we knew about all the new color options, and we knew about the awesome next-generation S Pen stylus, with built-in Bluetooth that opens the door to a wide range of new functionality.
Yes, we knew all about all of the good news surrounding the Galaxy Note 9 phablet, but we also knew the bad news. Like the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ that Samsung released earlier this year, the Note 9 looks almost exactly like its predecessor. But there's more news that Samsung fans might not find so great if they were hoping for a big power boost: It turns out that Samsung's brand new 2018 flagship phone can't even outperform Apple's iPhone X from 2017.
