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

Samsung's new smartphone illustrates the limits of innovation at a time when hardware advances have slowed.

Alongside the release of the Galaxy Note9 smartphone, Samsung also debuted a new wearable: the Galaxy Watch.

The new phone will get some automatic photo editing and a stylus that can serve as a remote control.

It goes on sale on 24 August.

Pre-orders for the smartphone will kick off tomorrow on 10 August, with the 6GB/128GB model costing £899, and the 8GB /512GB storage model priced at £1,099.

Samsung made a big deal about how it "invented" the big phone with the first Note, but it seems hell-bent on seeing how much bigger it can get away with.

Similarly to its predecessor, the Galaxy Watch features a very functional rotating bezel that enables the user to interact with the smartwatch in ways that few if any other devices of the type allow.

"But the jury is still out on whether people considering an alternative product, such as the iPhone or P20 Pro, will feel this is different enough to bring them across".

Samsung also announced a new smartwatch and a partnership with Spotify meant to make it easier to switch music playback between phones, TVs and the company's new speaker. And Samsung also teased its first Bixby-powered home speaker, Galaxy Home, a distinctive tripod design that resembles a hipster barbecue. According to Samsung a Bluetooh version of the Galaxy Watch is available now, but the 4G version won't be arriving with EE until later this year.

That represents about 7% of all the smartphones it has delivered over the period, but their premium prices mean they have accounted for 10% of revenues.

New Fix PUBG Initiative Started By Battlegrounds Developer
PUBG has honestly taken its own sweet time to fix the stability issues in the game which gave much ground to Fortnite . However, developer PUBG Corp is determined to fix the game and has revealed a roadmap for Fix PUBG .

In addition, Scene Optimiser algorithms attempt to identify the contents of the scene. The other colours have a matching colour S-pen.

None of this requires an internet connection.

Once you've propped up your phone for the flawless shot or you're trying to take a group selfie with your friends, simply click the S Pen again to snap the picture. Samsung's current speaker, the Invoke, uses Microsoft's Cortana assistant.

'I would say the functionality of the S Pen with Bluetooth, ' replied Beaumont when asked what her number one feature of the new phone would be.

Mr Jeronimo was more positive about the impact this would have.

Samsung is counting on the Note 9 to outsell the Note 8 to stem a sales slump. The fingerprint sensor is located at the back beneath the 12MP dual cameras, along with a health sensor that measures biometrics like heart rate, blood oxygen, and blood pressure.

The firm added that its proprietary CPU (central processing unit) was 33% faster than before.

That's quite a lot of change for a modest price rise - for the power user, it's probably within the range of what they might have expected. Watch this space for more information on the Samsung Galaxy Home speaker as and when it emerges...

However, it wasn't initially available on phones running the Android operating system.

But we were impressed with the Gear Sport's 300mAh battery, as it lasted about three full days on a single charge. Available in 42mm and 46mm sizes, it has a 360×360 AMOLED display that's scratch resistant and is water-resistant up to 5ATM. That marquee gadget failed to capture consumers' imagination or stop Huawei Technologies Co. and Xiaomi Corp. from grabbing market share at the Korean giant's expense.
