Samsung unveils gaming-friendly Galaxy Note 9, targeting younger customers

Fact aside that big phones would have nearly certainly been a thing even if Samsung hadn't ever built the first Note, it's easy to see why this kind of marketing is effective; the idea that by buying a phone you're not just buying a phone, you're expressing your loyalty to a particular tribe of the larger smartphone community.

SAMSUNG HAS SURPRISED no one with the unveiling of the Galaxy Note 9, which is exactly what you were expecting it to be.

"Considering the overall feature to price bundling, Note 9 is an upgrade to the previous Galaxy Note 8 series but one will have to wait to see the demand generated from the Indian market", Joshi noted. In the USA, the Galaxy Watch LTE version will be available through AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon as well as at Samsung.

But we were able to play around with the handset and check out the improved new S Pen stylus that slots right into a tidy little gap on the bottom of the phone.

To cap it off, Samsung finally put Bluetooth in the S Pen - something that's been on fan wishlists for years - to allow it to be used as a wireless remote app launcher, camera shutter, or slide controller. It has a built-in battery which is charged when in the silo.

Because it uses Bluetooth, the S Pen now has a battery in it, which charges while it's stored inside of the Note9.

The reason for Anthony Martial 's absence from Manchester United's clash with Bayern Munich has been revealed after much speculation.

Samsung discusses the camera in some detail in its press release but it wasn't featured very highly in the Unpacked presentation.

Samsung didn't give specifics about the Galaxy Watch's battery life, but it did suggest that it may be better than other traditional smartwatches. On stage a pro-doodler demonstration even swapped between the two devices.

The Galaxy Watch also tracks sleep and helps you manage stress, with a feature that establishes your baseline heart rate and then guides you through breathing exercises when your pulse shoots up outside of a workout. Frankly said, you don't need anymore than that on your wrist. Biometric security is catered for with Iris Scanner, Fingerprint Scanner, Facial Recognition or the "Intelligent Scan" combo of iris and face.

Those who pre-order will get their hands on the phone from August 24. Through Aug. 23, Sprint is also offering a free pair of AKG noise-canceling headphones or the Fortnite Galaxy skin with 15,000 in-game V-bucks for free. The company will have more to share about the Galaxy Home going forward.
