The Samsung Note 9 is set to be unveiled on August 9, before the phone reaches pre-order customers and early adopters in the subsequent couple of weeks.

The camera inside the Note 9 hops on board the computational-photography-and-AI train with two bundles of smarts.

In another tweak, the S-Pen supports Bluetooth LE mode for certain functions, as a remote controller for presentations or selfies.

The Note 9 camera uses AI to identify what's in the shot and adjust the lighting and colors accordingly.

To refresh your memory, Samsung DeX was initially introduced as an optional accessory where you can get a desktop-like PC experience when you dock your phone. The 512 GB Galaxy Note 9 with 8 GB of RAM will cost $1,300. Samsung says it's working with more than 30 carriers in more than 15 countries to bring LTE-enabled Galaxy Watches to users who want an untethered smartwatch.

Rounding out the spec list for Samsung's new Galaxy Note 9 is Android 8.1 Oreo, NFC and MST for mobile payments, wireless charging, iris scanning, and a rear fingerprint reader that's been moved to a spot below the rear camera to make it easier to reach.


Chinese rival Huawei predicted last week it would become the world's top smartphone seller by volume - displacing Samsung - in the final quarter of next year. Note 9 and Tab S4 owners also get a special skin called Galaxy.

Samsung has said the Bluetooth only version of the watch is available to buy in the United Kingdom from now, but we have yet to find any retailers offering the watch and we don't currently know the price. As per the leak, the alleged price of the base variant, that comes with 128GB internal storage will be IDR 13,500,000 (roughly Rs 64,400). Though they rarely agree on much, most Samsung users and iPhone users can agree that smartphone batteries need work.

The phone comes with high-end specs and design, as well as the Note line's signature S Pen stylus.

Editor's Note: This article discusses one or more securities that do not trade on a major US exchange. Outside the U.S., it'll come in black and copper.

There is heart rate monitoring and the Watch is water resistant.

Samsung launches its own smart speaker, the Galaxy Home with Bixby built in. It's not clear when the speaker will be available for purchase, but Samsung is expected to reveal more details at its developer conference in November. He also says that the speaker is outfitted with a subwoofer, so its clear this is meant to be used for in-home listening just as much as its meant to be a smart speaker that can compete with the likes of Alexa.
