Samsung Galaxy Note 9 launch live

This could definitely be on the cards in the future - after all, there are many devices from many manufacturers that support Spotify Connect: "Spotify continues to partner with other smartphone/in-home device makers and is now integrated with over 300 products across 80 hardware brands including a number of in-home devices and cars", we were told.

Samsung mobile chief Koh Dong-jin with the Note 9.

Through the Samsung Unpacked event that was held in NY, U.S., the South Korean company has unveiled the Galaxy Note 9 smartphone as a successor for the Galaxy Note 8 from past year. Check out our breakdown of all the Galaxy Note 9 price options from AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon. The Galaxy Note 8's wallpapers will fit the Galaxy Note 9 and the 9 on the 8 precisely and without external adjustment, as they roll with the same display resolution.

With all-day performance, a new S Pen and intelligent camera, nothing keeps up with your life like Galaxy Note9. A Pixel 2 XL will still fetch you $450 off, as will an iPhone X. You could pay just $550, 600, $650, etc. for a brand new $1,000 Note 9.

The Korean tech giant was equally audacious in storage. Apple's iPhone X now costs €1,179 and is sold by Irish operators. It will have two variants - 6GB RAM/128GB internal memory (expandable up to 512GB) and 8GB RAM/512GB internal memory (expandable up to 512GB). There's no word on when the Note 9 will receive the Android Pie Update. The upgrade comes in terms of camera improvements on software and artificial intelligence.

The user can hail an Uber vehicle or purchase a concert ticket available on Ticketmaster's platform using a voice command without launching the apps. The Screen Memo feature allows Note 9 users to take note on the display without waking it up.

Its S Pen stylus is Bluetooth-enabled and created to act as a remote for controlling YouTube video playback. Clicking the pen users can take selfies, pause and play videos and present slides. It can be fully charged in 40 seconds after being inserted in the slot and has 30 minutes standby time.

The Galaxy Note 9 is available for pre-order starting tomorrow, and in stores starting on August 24 from all major US carriers and unlocked from Samsung.

And then there's the Galaxy Watch, which is a Tizen-based smartwatch. Another highlight is the battery of the device. Pricing starts at $999.99 so it is not for the faint of wallet or purse, however there are buy one, get one (BOGO) offers available at Best Buy to significantly soften the blow. Samsung could simply launch a Galaxy S9+ with S Pen.

- The Note 9, just like other high-end Samsung phones, comes with a SuperAMOLED display.

Samsung also launched the Galaxy Home speaker, a device that will use its Bixby voice assistant and compete with similar products from Amazon.com Inc, Apple Inc and Alphabet Inc's Google.
