TRAVEL NOW gets acquainted with the incredible shooting capabilities of Samsung Galaxy Note 9 in Sydney, Australia!


Being able to take amazing photos all day long while on tour? Samsung’s new Galaxy Note 9 makes this possible with its fantastic camera features, and arguably the longest battery life ever produced for the Note series. We tried and tested the Galaxy Note 9 as we toured Sydney’s famed Bondi Beach and Bondi Icebergs yesterday and got to see for ourselves how the it can squeeze the best lighting out of different types of scenery, as taught to us by Aussie photographers Luke Tscharke (@tscharke) and Rob Mulally (@robmulally).

Check out what makes the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 the most groundbreaking phablet yet in terms of travel photography:

1. Its scene-optimizing AI camera is revolutionary

During our workshop with Luke and Rob, we learned that the phone can do multiple exposures in various light conditions. The Galaxy Note 9 can even capture light painting! This is because the phone comprises AI (artificial intelligence) multi-aperture, 12-megapixel dual lens cameras that can optimize snaps depending on the scene. It adapts to the environment (whether it’s sunset, night, or daytime) and applies certain tweaks to balance out the tones of the photos.

2. It has flaw detection capabilities!

The Galaxy Note 9’s Flaw Detection feature shows photography issues right after a snap is taken—it even suggests trying to take the shot again, or finding a different location.

3. Its S Pen can be used as a camera remote

There is finally no need for others to take your photos, or the patience-draining timers during shoots as the Galaxy Note 9 gives you a remote shutter in the form of the S Pen. This feature, among the new ones of the stylus, makes it easy for travelers to take shots on a tripod or an external mount.

4. It has an improved battery life and water carbon cooling features

One of the major concerns with smartphones is their ability to last a whole day without running out of battery or overheating. The Galaxy Note 9 finally takes care of that problem, thanks to its massive 4000-mAh power pack and its water carbon cooling features We were able to see it first-hand when we went around the beach, where we took photos all afternoon until sundown. Other users even attested that its battery life lasts 22 to 24 hours.

Also, Samsung’s water carbon cooling is intended to lessen overheating by 21%. This means that even if you’re taking photos nonstop under the scorching sun, the Galaxy Note 9 will stay cool with you!

5. Its big memory makes it capture all your best trip memories!

With its 128GB default memory, as well as a micro SD slot for expandability, how can you not have all the best photos you can ever take?
