Features of electronic giant’s first smartwatch revealed — Samsung Galaxy Watch

SamGNote9

"We're three generations removed now", Samsung's director of USA product marketing, Suzanne De Silva, said of the company's renewed confidence in the battery. From a hardware perspective, there is no better-equipped Android phone on the market right now.

Samsung also announced a new smartwatch and a partnership with Spotify meant to make it easier to switch music playback between phones, TVs and the company's new speaker. The Note 8 sported dual rear cameras and the biggest screen to date on a Samsung smartphone.

Teasers, leaks... we, as the media, lap it up and disseminate every morsel to the general public.

The Note9 announcement opened with a montage of journalists disparaging the original Galaxy Note back in 2011 (to be fair, it was a bad phone), followed by a supercut on the rise of the Big Phone and the Note's subsequent dominance of the segment it essentially created.

Of course, not everything about Samsung phones is appealing. That is a good thing, indeed. Yes, only by 2mm, but that's still a wider grip that hands have to deal with on an already-large phone. This is still mostly your standard Note phone, though.

SAMSUNG is poised to go head-to-head with Apple in the race to put a device on your wrist this year after unveiling its first smartwatch that will work without a phone connection.

Even if you downloaded all the Spotify, Netflix, Amazon Prime and offline movies you wanted, and filled the phone with massive games, you'd still struggle to top 256GB of space.

Germany Lifts Ban On Nazis Imagery In Video Games
Now video games will be given the same treatment as movies: As works of art, they will be exempt from the ban on swastikas. All computer games sold on storage media in Germany have to be checked by the USK, which issues age ratings.

Samsung said the Note 9 will be the first Android phone to support Fortnite, a hugely popular video-and-smartphone survival game that was only playable on computers, consoles and Apple products until now. For them, it'll be seen as incremental upgrades that are there for the sake of seeing what can be done on a phone.

The Note 9, which comes in multiple hues including blue and purple in the U.S and black and copper internationally, sports an upgraded version of Samsung's DeX system.

It should be noted though that these figures are based on the 46mm model. Those just aren't smartphone prices. If everything works as it should, then you will be able to use the same sort of voice commands on watch as you can on the Note 9. Rather than a battery, the S Pen has a supercapacitor inside that keeps it running for about 30 minutes at a time. For the true mobile media warrior, a 512GB model (which costs an insane $1250) can be paired with an upcoming 512GB Samsung microSD card to bring the phone to a full terabyte of internal storage.

The camera in the Note 9 will use artificial intelligence to detect what's in a scene - whether that's food, flowers or a sunset - to automatically tweak images to make them pop.

Corning, today announced that Samsung's newly introduced Galaxy Watch would come with its new glass composite called Corning Gorilla Glass DX+, which is highly scratch-resistant and anti-reflective.

With the Note9, Samsung played shamelessly to its fanbase and gave them what they've asked for pretty much every year.

Could the "artificially intelligent" features of the camera make it to the S10? "My worry is that the Note 9 may meet the same fate".
