Samsung’s new Galaxy Watch runs Tizen, lasts "several days" on one charge

Samsung Galaxy Note 9

Samsung's also promising that the Note 9 is created to make sure it lasts. The most important internal change is Samsung's new 4,000mAh battery - the Note 8 has a 3,300mAh cell.

One of the biggest bonus features of all Note phones is the iconic S Pen which, over the last few years, has been radically advanced with a more accurate nib and extra features.

The S-Pen can be recharges in the phone, with 30 seconds of charging offering 30 minutes of charge.

Firstly, the Note 9 ships with a new and improved S Pen, which comes with Bluetooth LE (Low Energy) baked-in for the first time. It has a built-in battery which is charged when in the silo. Samsung cleverly included inductive charging in the S Pen, so it'll fill up when docked in the phone.

Samsung discusses the camera in some detail in its press release but it wasn't featured very highly in the Unpacked presentation. That's a pretty good estimate given how notoriously bad smartwatch battery life used to be - we are intrigued to test the Galaxy Watch and see for ourselves if it could reach the advertised battery life! On stage a pro-doodler demonstration even swapped between the two devices.

That being said, Bixby hasn't generated masses of user praise, so only time will tell how well the Galaxy Home's smart assistant functionality goes down. Here's what you need to know. Biometric security is catered for with Iris Scanner, Fingerprint Scanner, Facial Recognition or the "Intelligent Scan" combo of iris and face.

A choice of an AKG noise cancelling headphones ($299 value) or the unique Fortnite Galaxy skin with 15,000 V-bucks ($150 value) for free-or both ($449 value) for $99 through Shop Samsung app.

Under the hood is Samsung's in-house 10nm Exynos 9810 or Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 CPU (depending on region), paired with either 6GB or 8GB RAM depending on whether you pick up the 128GB or 512GB model. On this side of the pond, I've been emailed by Carphone Warehouse in the United Kingdom saying you can get a Galaxy Note9 for £46 per month on with 30GB per month and zero upfront cost.

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. The phone launches on August 24th.

Looking for something a bit simpler?

It really depends on how much you value Samsung's optimization on whether you think this is a worthwhile purchase - there are many phones from China especially that offer similar specs, and for far less cash.
