Samsung today unveiled the new Samsung Galaxy Note9 at their global event, “Galaxy Unpacked,” in New York City. As part of the announcement, Samsung highlighted the industry-leading mobile apps in creativity and productivity — Adobe Photoshop Sketch and Adobe Scan — for creatives and consumers worldwide.

Together with Bixby Vision, Samsung’s intelligent assistant, Adobe is turning the Galaxy Note9 into an intelligent scanning tool that automatically recognizes text with Adobe Scan. And on stage at “Unpacked,” renowned pop artist Mr. Doodle demonstrated what’s possible for drawing and painting on mobile devices thanks to Adobe Photoshop Sketch and Samsung DeX, a mobile experience that turns the Galaxy Note9 and other Samsung devices into a PC-like experience.

Adobe Scan for Bixby Vision

With Adobe Scan for Bixby Vision, the Galaxy Note9’s camera automatically recognizes documents in its field of view and suggests opening them in Adobe Scan. Adobe Scan uses powerful artificial intelligence in Adobe Sensei to produce perfect boundaries, perspectives, and text in a sharp, easy to read Adobe PDF. Galaxy Note9 customers will also be connected to the world’s best PDF services via Adobe Scan. Over 10.5 million consumers around the world have already downloaded Adobe Scan to log expense receipts, save business cards, store class notes, file tax documents for digital safekeeping, and more.

Adobe Photoshop Sketch and Samsung DeX

As part of the Galaxy Note9 launch, Samsung released an update to DeX, which includes dual screen support. The new update was demonstrated onstage by Mr. Doodle with Adobe Photoshop Sketch. Adobe Photoshop Sketch provides Galaxy Note9 and DeX users can use Sketch’s drawing tools to create naturally with the digital canvas including a graphite pencil, ink pen, and blending markers.

Adobe Scan for Bixby Vision will first be available in the Galaxy Note9, and then it will roll out into future and past Samsung mobile devices with Bixby Vision like the Galaxy S8/S8+, Galaxy Note8, and Galaxy S9/S9+.
