  • Samsung Galaxy Note 9

Preordering the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 gets you some special Fortnite bonuses to celebrate: you can get an astonishing 15,000 V-Bucks, or you can opt for a pair of AKG noise-cancelling headphones, for free with your preorder.

The new Note phone is bigger, has more generous storage and touts improved camera performance in low light. Behind the 6.4-inch screen of the Note 9, Samsung have hidden their largest ever battery at 4000mAh which they claim will power the phone for a whole day. Apart from the ability to take notes, the S-pen can now connect to your phone through Bluetooth and perform multiple functions like a remote shutter for your camera, play or pause music/videos, change presentation slides, etc.

Under the hood, both phones run on the same SoC, which is Samsung's current-gen flagship chipset, the Exynos 9810 on global variants, while the USA variant sports the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset.

The dual 12MP camera on the Note 9 seems fairly similar to that of the Note 8.

Even though the improvements from last year aren't huge, Technalysis Research analyst Bob O'Donnell said they will come across as major for those who haven't upgraded for a few years.

The women and children seemed to be very "intimidated" by the men and were potentially "brainwashed", the sheriff said. On Dec. 29, Clayton County police said they had obtained information that the group could be in the area of Taos, NM.

At its Samsung Unpacked event in New York City, the Korean electronics manufacturer unveiled the new smartphone everyone expected. Like the Apple Pencil, Samsung says its new S Pen can be used for 30 minutes after less than a minute of charging (which automatically occurs when you pop it back into its holster). 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. This will let people control music or snap selfies just by clicking the stylus.

Samsung has announced the new Galaxy Home, its first smart speaker equipped with the voice assistant Bixby and equipped with all the features that allow it to integrate into the SmartThings ecosystem.

WHAT: For the next few days, owners of Galaxy devices will have first access to Fortnite beta on Android before it's more widely available. It promises quality sound, in a potential challenge to Apple's Siri-based HomePod speaker.

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.
