Samsung Galaxy Watch to launch alongside the Galaxy Note 9

  • Samsung Galaxy Watch set for 9 August unveil

The Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, for example, has a 6.2-inch screen and the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 only has a slightly larger one at 6.3 inches. The Galaxy S+ phones are also surprisingly similar to the Note devices, with the lack of stylus being the only major difference.

It's about two and a half weeks until Samsung unveils the Galaxy Note 9 to the world, but if fresh rumours are to be believed it might just be the last time Samsung launches a Galaxy Note product.

According to the Korean media, The Bell, Samsung's Vice Chairman, Jay Lee, is looking to merge the mainstream Galaxy S flagship lineup and the S Pen-carrying Galaxy Note family.


There are already talks about Samsung introducing a smartphone with a foldable display next year during CES 2019.

This morning, a report suggested that Samsung's next watch was indeed called Galaxy Watch, but that it would run Tizen 4.0 instead of fulfilling the rumor of Samsung's switch back to Wear OS. During its Quarterly Business Review, the company is said to have informally mentioned about the merging of Galaxy Note and Galaxy S series. While that battle has mostly been confined to the realm of premium smartphones, it seems as though Samsung is now targeting Apple in other areas too - the rumored Bixby smart speaker, which would compete with Apple's HomePod, and now, a smartwatch to compete with the Apple Watch.

And although we've got mixed feelings about that - we were enormous fans of the Gear brand, giving the Samsung Gear S3 a coveted five-star review - we're excited to see what a Galaxy revamp could look like.
