Upgrading from a Galaxy Note 8 to a Galaxy Note 9 will give you a few key improvements. As a starting point, Samsung loaded the Galaxy Note 9 with a 4000 mAh battery, which is up from the 3300 mAh battery found in the Galaxy Note 8. Users can also expect a bump in overall power due to a newer processor, along with options for more storage, both internally and the microSD card slot. Samsung also added Bluetooth to the S-Pen with the release of the Galaxy Note 9.
