Before Moving to the comparison I will recall the specifications and features of Samsung Note 9. If you know everything about Note 9 then you can skip the next part and scroll down to see the comparison.

Samsung Note 9 specifications


The design and build quality are very similar to the previous Note series from Samsung. In the rear same Metal and glass are used. There is a change in the position of the fingerprint sensor. Now the fingerprint sensor (in Rectangular shape) is just below the dual camera setup. In front, it has the infinity display and curved edges that are commonly seen in Samsung devices.

There is no notch which I really appreciate and also the bezels are exactly the same as Samsung Note 8. So this is all about the design, now let’s see the hardware configurations. I am pretty sure that it can not beat the Pixel 3 in terms of Design.

Hardware Configuration

The Samsung Note 9 comes in two different RAM and Storage variant. It is powered by flagship processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 845. It was easily predictable that it is going to have this chipset. The base variant of the Note 9 comes with 6GB RAM and 128GB of Storage. Whereas the other version comes with 8GB RAM and 512GB of Storage. This is insane Right? This much of storage is mainly seen in PCs. We all know that Samsung is good at attracting customers by providing this type of insane spec. If you are not satisfied with the 512GB Storage then you can also use a MicroSD card up to 512GB.

Note 9 comes with a stylus with some upgrades. The stylus has Bluetooth low energy which means we can use the Stylus as the Remote control. The good thing is we can map the tasks of the button present on S Pen. Another change is that the S Pen needs to be charged to work. To charge it, we don’t need any cable or adapter, just place it in the phone and will be charged.

The phone comes with 4000mAh battery capacity, which can help us to work longer.


Samsung S9 Plus comes with 6.4-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED Display. The resolutions of the Display is 1440×2960 pixels. If you have used any latest Samsung smartphone then you probably know how good the display is, I mean it is great.


Talking about the rear camera it has dual camera setup of 12MP with dual LED Flash. And the Front camera is of 8 MP. The Front and Rear camera are powered with some great software such as AI.

Operating System

It comes with Android Oreo 8.1 out of the box. And as usual, it has the Samsung Custom UI, which doesn’t affect much.

Google Pixel 3 is going to come with Stock Android to which no Custom UI can Beat. The Stock experience is the best from my point of view and it also increases the Smartphone experience. And the best part is that Pixel phone always gets the OS update first.

Along with Google Pixel 3, Google will also launch the bigger version Pixel 3 XL. The name can be different but two variants are going to be launch soon.

As Android P or Pie is now Rolling out to the Android Devices and so I am pretty sure that Google Pixel 3 is going to run on Android P. We can also see the notch in the new Pixel 3 XL and a dual camera setup in the notch. But in Google Pixel 3 there will no notch and the dual camera will be on the top left. Also, we can expect from Google Pixel 3 to support wireless charging.
