Samsung Galaxy Note 9 launch; How to watch live stream

At the NY event on Thursday, Samsung also introduced a new Galaxy Watch that competes with a similar product from Apple.

Samsung says it will open the S Pen's remote control-abilities to third-party development, which means more applications may be coming soon.

The product line's signature S Pen has also been given a huge upgrade.

Rounding out the spec list for Samsung's new Galaxy Note 9 is Android 8.1 Oreo, NFC and MST for mobile payments, wireless charging, iris scanning, and a rear fingerprint reader that's been moved to a spot below the rear camera to make it easier to reach. Thoughts? Let us know what you think in the comments section below and stay tuned. The 512GB storage, 8GB RAM variant of the Galaxy Note 9 will be available at Samsung.com, AT&T, Verizon, US Cellular, and T-Mobile on the 24th of August.

The camera now has scene detection modes that can choose the best shooting mode for you, features seen on 2018's Huawei P20 Pro and LG G7 ThinQ.

So you could use it to take long-range group selfies, start and stop music that's playing on your phone and advance through slides while your colleagues gaze in awe at the cool transitions you've chosen for your presentation.

It's worth noting that Spotify was already available on a wide range of smart speakers, including the HomePod, Sonos family, Google Home lineup, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles and many more. The Note also got curved edges before that became standard on Samsung's flagship phones. As rumors previously suggested, the company did indeed have a bit of a partnership between Epic Games to bring the popular battle royale Fortnite to its Android devices first. During the event, several features of the phone were discussed and announced. Apple's iPhones max out at 256GB with no microSD slot, but the Note 9 has the option to add another 512GB in this way, making it a phone that can have a whole terabyte of storage.

No one reported any problems with the Note 8, and analysts don't foresee problems with the Note 9.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will be sold in Midnight Black, Lavender Purple, Metallic Cooper, and Ocean Blue with a Yellow S Pen.

Despite being a productivity-focused smartphone, Samsung appears to be gearing the Note9 as an ultimate gaming device.

American Note 9 buyers will find a Snapdragon 845 SoC inside, running at up to 2.8 GHz on its performance cores and up to 1.7 GHz on its efficiency cores.

There's also been an upgrade in the camera department. We'll keep you updated on the latest.
