Samsung Galaxy Home, Powered by Bixby and AKG Speakers, Now Official

To take a photo of each meal and instantly log nutritional information in Samsung Health and on Galaxy Watch for better calorie management.

Want a closer look at that image?

Samsung also launched a new Galaxy Watch.

Samsung's latest device enters the ring at a time of slowing smartphone demand globally and a disappointing performance by its cousin, the Galaxy S9.

Samsung even boasted that it controlled its Note 9 presentation using the banana-a-like stylus, before announcing that it plans to open up the SDK to developers so functionality can be built into third-party apps. But it also costs a whopping £899 for the basic 128GB model.

The Samsung Galaxy Note will be available from 24 August in Midnight Black, Lavender Purple, Metallic Copper with matching S Pen, and Ocean Blue with a Yellow S Pen. Not that it was much of a surprise since literally everything there was to know about the phone had leaked in the months leading up to yesterday's event, but the Galaxy Note 9 is without question one of the hottest smartphones in the world right now. That's going to be our new go-to watch face when wearing this.

Other options are available - Samsung is spoiling us for choice!

More than half of those sales were claimed by Apple, however, which launched a cellular version of its Watch in September a year ago.

In the USA, the Galaxy Watch price starts at $329 for the 42mm version and is back to $349.99 for the 46mm version. This is likely due to the extra grunt needed to maintain a mobile connection.

At first glance, the new stylus-or S Pen as Samsung calls it-looks like a slightly larger version of the one on the Note8. That means it has 39 built-in workouts for you to try, calorie tracking that can tie into Bixby Vision and automatically log nutritional information for you.

It did reveal the speaker has eight microphones that will delivery "far-field voice recognition" for its Bixby. Both offer microSD slots, allowing users to expand the Note 9's onboard storage up to 1TB.

In terms of OS, the Galaxy Watch retains Tizen, now in its 4.0 incarnation. On top of that, the Note 9 actually sports a few compelling new features that its predecessor lacked.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch is the best smartwatch Samsung has ever made. No, it shouldn't be for most people. It also simply looks more like a regular watch, which is definitely something to approve of.

In all honesty, I'm having a hard time really saying anything all that interesting about the Note9, even if Samsung would want me to talk up things like supercapacitors and intelligent camera.
