Samsung announced that the Note 9 will be available on August 24.

And then we have the signature, all-new S Pen with Bluetooth support.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch is the name of the latest smartwatch from Samsung, finally putting to rest rumors that the wearable was going to be called the Samsung Gear S4 or Samsung Gear Sport 2.

First, know that Samsung is offering a couple of perks for those who pre-order a Note 9 by August 23 - either a free pair of AKG noise-canceling headphones or a Fortnite Galaxy Skin with 15,000 V-bucks (the in-game currency). The speaker uses the "Hi Bixby" wake word and can direct sound at you depending on where you are in the room, just like the Apple HomePod.

Samsung is counting on its latest device to lead the charge during the crucial holiday season and revitalize a mobile division where profits nearly halved last quarter.

The 6.4-inch screen Note 9 will start at $999.99 and max out at $1,249.99 - becoming, at about $100 above the iPhone X's upper limit, one of the world's most expensive consumer phones.

While the Galaxy Note 9 may look similar to last year's Galaxy Note 8, it's gotten several notable updates over its predecessor.

Both cameras in the dual-lens system have 12 megapixels.

At some point, Samsung will no longer promote the Note 9 and Tab 4 so heavily, as it will move onto its next flagships.

In a change, Trump says meeting's purpose was Clinton info
Trump, of course, claims to not knowing about the meeting, in spite of his involvement in the statement mentioned above. Trump's claim that he did not know about the Trump Tower meeting is also "problematic", according to The Post .

Samsung Galaxy owners will get to play Fortnite Android first and those who purchase the Note 9 or Tab S4 will get a free "Galaxy" skin. "My worry is that the Note 9 may meet the same fate".

Bixby has become smarter. In the U.S., pricing is $999.99 for 128GB and $1,249.99 for 512GB. 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.

Power users will appreciate the bigger battery and larger storage options which isn't available previously in Malaysia.

The Note's stylus will now have Bluetooth, allowing people to control phones and apps from up to 30 feet away.

It did reveal the speaker has eight microphones that will delivery "far-field voice recognition" for its Bixby.

Other important features of this smartphone are its fast wireless charging, IP68 water and dust resistance4 and Samsung services such as Samsung Health and Samsung Pay.

The company didn't immediately give a release date or prices for the Galaxy Watch, but we know it'll be available in three colors: Silver, Midnight Black and Rose Gold.

With up to 8GB of RAM and the Exynos 9 CPU, the Note 9 comes tooled for the level of processing necessary for gaming, and Samsung will be keen to make the most of partnering with Fortnite developers Epic Games.
