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

Korean giant makes one last stab at enticing consumers with a large mega-phone that's bigger than an iPhone and has features like headphone jack and expandable storage that Apple doesn't offer. The Note has not turned into a great seller despite Samsung to launch Galaxy Home smart speaker in challenge to Apple's HomePod

Samsung is betting everything on the Galaxy Note 9 in a saturated market where all smartphones are more or less the same.

Except the price, that is. Unfortunately this needs to be one of Samsung's special dongles, rather than any old adaptor you can purchase online.

"Global Premium smartphone market contributes to nearly one fifth of the total smartphone market and the Note series is likely to do well in the segment", said Tarun Pathak, Associate Director at Counterpoint Research.

Samsung also revealed that a tie-up with games developer Epic meant that existing Galaxy phones are the first Android devices to get access to the hit game Fortnite.

Also notable is are the RAM and storage, which now start at 6 GB /128 GB but are upgradable to 8 GB / and 512GB, not to mention another 512GB that could be added with an upcoming MicroSD card. It offers more sizes and styles with a 46mm version in Silver, as well as a 42mm option in Midnight Black and Rose Gold. That's it. There's no gotta-have-it body color or extra camera or higher refresh rate. There's no word on when the Note 9 will receive the Android Pie Update. But how does it stack up against Apple's iPhone X?

Exhausted of getting that annoying message on your iPhone warning you about running out space?

It should be noted though that these figures are based on the 46mm model. The camera has AI inside it, but LG and Huawei are already doing that.

The S-Pen can be recharges in the phone, with 30 seconds of charging offering 30 minutes of charge.

The S Pen is always an important aspect of the Note series and invariably gets more features in each iteration.

The Galaxy Watch sticks to the same rotating bezel design as the Gear lineup and runs on Samsung's Tizen OS.

Read on to find out everything you need to know about the brand new Samsung Galaxy Home. It's an evolution of the Galaxy Note 8 but one with some notable upgrades.

Of course, not everything about Samsung phones is appealing. Why am I forced to pay for 128GB of internal storage?

With the Note 9, Samsung is doing a friendly form of price-gouging. And this could back-fire. That's a 21 percent increase over the 3,300 mAh battery, and a 500 mAh increase over this year's S9 Plus. Apple offers value for your thousand dollars, while Samsung offers excess. Its display and battery are also bigger than earlier models. Will the Note 9 be different? "Why would I ever want to do that though?" asks the customer.

On top of this, the Note 9 boasts an IP68 water and dust resistance rating, making it far more durable in a variety of situations. Sure, the Note 9 has twice as much storage, but such with a concentration on cloud and streaming, 64GB should be plenty for most people. Apple sets the price for the carriers, and that's the end of it.

But, hey, at least it still has a headphone jack.
