Two ways to watch MKV movies on Galaxy Note 9
The Galaxy Note 9 has plenty of things going for it, including an S Pen that doubles as a remote control. The 4,000 mAh battery is the biggest ever in a Samsung handset, which is a big step up from the Note 8 and its 3,300 mAh power pack. The same Super AMOLED panel with quad-HD resolution that you find in the Note 8 and Galaxy S9 is what you get with the Note 9, but then again, it’s pretty hard to improve upon perfection.
