Samsung launches the Galaxy Note9 with 6.4-inch screen

  • Samsung launches the Galaxy Note9 with 6.4-inch screen

"The new Galaxy Watch was designed for all lifestyles to help meet consumer needs, such as more efficient battery life to stay connected longer, and better wellness tracking to help users maintain their goals - we are delivering them with connected experiences, all at the touch of a wrist".

In fact, it turns out that Samsung's plus-sized Note range of phones actually commands the most loyal fan base.

Samsung's new phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, which is still Qualcomm's flagship mobile SoC (until the Snapdragon 855 arrives). The fingerprint sensor is now below the camera, whereas the Note 8 had the sensor next to the cameras.

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. Both are available worldwide from August 24.

Of course, not everything about Samsung phones is appealing. Both offer microSD slots, allowing users to expand the Note 9's onboard storage up to 1TB.

Even though the improvements from last year aren't huge, Technalysis Research analyst Bob O'Donnell said they will come across as major for those who haven't upgraded for a few years.


As we said, we're leaving the iPhone X out of this little roundup, and that makes the iPhone 8 Plus your best big-screen option on Apple iOS. The Note 9 will get an update... eventually.

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. It's much like applying filters with an app, except that the phone will do this itself, much the way Google's Pixel phones already do.

There's also been an upgrade in the camera department. This will let people control music or snap selfies just by clicking the stylus.

Samsung also previewed a new voice-assisted speaker, the Galaxy Home, using its homegrown digital assistant, Bixby.

Yesterday was a big day for Samsung and the Android world.

If the details are pretty thin on the ground at the moment, there's good reason why; Samsung hasn't announced the speaker yet, with more information expected at a developers' conference in early November - right in time for the festive season. The device has a "water carbon cooling system", which spreads and ultimately dissipates heat from the chipset using carbon fiber to, ideally, prevent overheating. "Although listening to music is also a major use case, consumers new to the segment that are not audiophiles will likely be satisfied with a low-priced Echo Dot or Google Mini".
