  • Samsung’s new Galaxy Note 9 shows how hardware innovation has slowed

Like, now. And anyone who buys the new Samsung Note 9 or Galaxy Tab S4 will get access to the free Samsung Galaxy outfit.

Samsung Electronics Co Ltd launched the Galaxy Note 9 "phablet" in NY on Thursday, promising better battery life and quick cooling to attract gamers and revive flagging sales. The headline upgrades are better cameras, more storage, bigger screen and battery and an S-Pen that now has Bluetooth.

Announced at an event in NY on Thursday, the Note 9 resembles last year's Note 8, replete with glass front and back, curved edges and slide-out S Pen stylus.

Samsung had one more thing to unveil at its Unpacked event in NY earlier today after confirming everything we already knew about the Galaxy Note 9, taking the wraps off a new smartwatch with a simplified name, and presenting teasing its long overdue Bixby-controlled answer to Apple's HomePod. And you can download this right now if you follow this link.

Galaxy Note 9. Now with a reasonable battery. He also showed off a compelling demo in which the Spotify app was able to recognize where the phone was inside a home and suggest a place in that location to play music.

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. It still runs on the latest flagship processors as the Galaxy S9 series and the Galaxy Note9 now comes with a minimum of 128GB of storage and it has 6GB of RAM.

At the firm's Unpacked event in Brooklyn, New York today, Samsung teased a look at its sleek Galaxy Home speaker, equipped with the Bixby voice assistant.


No one reported any problems with the Note 8, and analysts don't foresee problems with the Note 9.

American Note 9 buyers will find a Snapdragon 845 SoC inside, running at up to 2.8 GHz on its performance cores and up to 1.7 GHz on its efficiency cores.

It also features up to 512GB of internal storage depending on which variant fans choose to pick up.

More devices should be added to the list, and we'll provide step-by-step instructions for installing the game on non-Samsung devices the game has been opened up to all other compatible Android devices.

Not using a Samsung device? In our short usage, the "scene" icon is barely noticeable, and the recognition doesn't feel as quick as Huawei's P20.

Funnily enough, that first Note, with a mere 5.3in touchscreen, is a minnow by today's standards: the Galaxy Note 9, unveiled on Thursday, measures 6.4in.

The new Samsung Galaxy Note9 shares a lot of qualities with the new Galaxy Tab 4. Samsung claimed "several days" of battery life should be possible.
