Samsung unveils gaming-friendly Galaxy Note 9, targeting younger customers

Samsung Galaxy Note 9

Samsung has been conservative on battery improvements ever since its Note 7 phone in 2016 developed a tendency to ignite, prompting an expensive recall and delivering a hit to the company's reputation. It's big, pretty, and comes with a stylus.

The Note 9 has a slightly larger 6.4-inch OLED display this year with the same 2960 x 1440 resolution. It'll ship with Samsung's in-house 10nm Exynos 9810 CPU (or Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 in the US), paired with either 6GB or 8GB RAM depending on whether you pick up the 128GB or 512GB model.

It should be noted though that these figures are based on the 46mm model. If you need even more space for multitasking prowess, there will also be a 512GB storage/8GB RAM option.

The Galaxy Watch, revealed at the company's worldwide event in Brooklyn overnight, will be the first Samsung smartwatch with its own mobile internet connection, and the first wearable technology in Australia that will connect to mobile networks overseas, allowing Aussie travellers to access maps and stay in contact while on holidays. The Note 9's camera upgrade is on par with the one given to the S9 in March, adding enhanced colours and exposure. The fingerprint sensor is now below the camera, whereas the Note 8 had the sensor next to the cameras. That was a real hand-stretcher. This is a phone where you really don't have to make any sacrifices.

The trademark feature of the Note series is the S Pen stylus. Although, it seems a bit underutilized.

At least four dead in Canada shooting
Police tweeted: "We are asking people to avoid the area of Brookside Drive this morning due to an ongoing incident". The Fredericton police said in a post on Twitter the incident was ongoing and there were multiple fatalities.

Because the S Pen has Bluetooth, it needs power. Samsung cleverly included inductive charging in the S Pen, so it'll fill up when docked in the phone. It recharges in less than a minute, too.

Being a big phone release from the biggest Android manufacturer, the Note 9 will have plenty of third-party accessories like screen protectors, rugged cases and vehicle mounts for your employees to use to keep the phone itself safe. The Note 8 sported dual rear cameras and the biggest screen to date on a Samsung smartphone. Lovers of the game will get an exclusive Note 9 character skin or alternative appearance for characters.

USA carrier Verizon Communications Inc said the new device will be available for pre-order from August 10, with the 128 gigabyte model priced at $999.99 for the and 512GB model at $1,249.99.

It's worth pointing out that Samsung says Internet Explorer 11 and older do not support live stream playback, and that if you're watching on a mobile device you'll need to have the latest version of either Chrome or YouTube installed. The phone launches on August 24th.
