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

Samsung to launch Galaxy Home smart speaker in challenge to Apple's HomePod

The starting price of $1,000 is an increase from the Note 8, but on par with Apple's top-of-the-line iPhone X. The Note 9 will get double the storage, at 128 gigabytes, compared with typical high-end phones, including the iPhone X. Samsung will also sell a 512-gigabyte version for power users for $1,250. United States pre-orders Start from 10 August (tomorrow) and pre-orders get a free pair of AKG noise-cancelling headphones (worth about $299) or 15,000 in Fortnite V-Bucks.

As an exclusive to Samsung, the game will not be available through the Google Play store, but will be available on other Samsung devices through the Galaxy game launcher.

With all-day performance, a new S Pen and intelligent camera, nothing keeps up with your life like Galaxy Note9.

The 6.4-inch Note 9 comes in four colours and two variants - 6GB RAM and 128GB in-built internal memory (expandable up to 512GB) and 8GB RAM with 512GB ROM that can be expandable up to 1TB with an additional 512GB microSD card - a delight for the gamers and heavy-duty users.

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

There is no doubt this is another feature aimed at business and productivity users - you can imagine offices all over the place using their Note phones to make presentations, with the S Pen used to move to the next slide. Buying the Note 9 through Paytm Mall will fetch you INR 6,000 cashback as well. You also still get to choose from the aforementioned bonus perks when preordering. Go here to check it out.

As for the camera we're getting the same horizontal dual camera layout as the Note 9, albeit with a fingerprint scanner below the lenses. "Okay, so what can I use on my phone?" asks the customer.

Galaxy Note 9. Now with a reasonable battery. As with the S9 it has the variable dual-aperture system (f/1.5 and f/2.4) created to mimic the human eye, a 2x optical zoom on the secondary lens, and a dual-pixel sensor for super slow-mo video recording. With the Note 9, you no longer need the dock - just a USB-C to HDMI cable to connect to your external monitor. Or, you know, your finger.

As to whether Samsung now has the weapon in its locker to take down the Apple Watch remains to be seen, but from what I have seen, it genuinely looks like a contender that can help run it close and generate more interest and innovation in the smartwatch market.

But if you are not in the market for wearables, Samsung has two more launch offer options - INR 6,000 ($87) cashback through HDFC Bank or no cost EMI from INR 5,5657.57 ($82) each month. Again, I didn't have chance to check the limits of functionality and compatibility with iOS on the hands-on session, so again it will be worth holding off for T3's full Galaxy Watch review.
