Coupled with the powerful hardware is what Samsung calls a true "all-day" battery - a 4,000mAh unit which should let users do whatever they want without the fear of running out of power. That might be a tough call as the Note 9 might not be a mass phone that it needs to be to rake in the volumes.

Airlines have begun allowing Samsung Note phones back on board following the debacle two years ago. It can detect if someone screws up your picture, and notifies you so you can have another go.
