Samsung launches new LTE-enabled Galaxy Watch, Home smart speaker

Samsung's latest device enters the ring at a time of slowing smartphone demand globally and a disappointing performance by its cousin, the Galaxy S9.

Thursday's announcement in NY comes about a month before Apple is expected to unveil new iPhones.

In terms of network support and retailers, in the United States the LTE version of the Galaxy Watch, which is set to cost more than the base model, is being sold via AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, and the official Samsung online store.

"The product was too similar to the S8". From a hardware perspective, there is no better-equipped Android phone on the market right now.

Not using a Samsung device?

That stance is easing with executives promising to introduce eye-opening features more aggressively. It promised more details at its developers' conference in November. But the highlights will be a bigger battery, a faster processor and improved cellular speeds. "Thus, the Note 9 serves primarily to keep the Note customer base happy until the anticipated design changes expected in 2019 along with new technologies like foldable displays".

Moving towards 3D Mark Slingshot Extreme 3.1, the Galaxy Note 9, iPhone X and OnePlus 6 scored 4639, 4994, and 5124 points respectively.

Facebook Brings AR games to it's Messenger Video Chat
The social media giant is launching a number of augmented reality video chat games for use on Messenger. The feature allows people to play AR games on one-to-one video calls or in groups.

The screen's 0.1-inch increase is actually a little more annoying, as the phone has increased a touch.

Samsung has also added an adjustable aperture 12MP main camera to the Note 9, which is paired with a 12MP telephotos camera. When the Note first came out, the S Pen was really only useful for swipe typing, doodling and writing quick notes. This feature lets users connect their device to a computer display using a separate accessory, essentially turning the smartphone into a full-featured desktop with apps. Priced at $329.99, "Galaxy Watch" comes with LTE connectivity and the new stress-and-sleep-monitoring capabilities would allow users to text, stream music, receive notifications and would work in compatibility with Galaxy Note 9 or even independently.

Bigged-up by Samsung as the "world's most powerful smartphone", the Note 9 also boasts an under the hood rejig.

It is also designed to fit into the Galaxy Ecosystem creating a seamless experience with SmartThings, Samsung Health, Samsung Flow, Samsung Knox, Samsung Pay, Bixby and with partnerships like Spotify and Under Armour.

Leaks had previously suggested that the new Samsung Galaxy Not 9 would have exclusivity for Fortnite for the first 30 days, but a beta for a range of models has gone live.

The gadget will feature revamped health software that works with the heart-rate sensor.

Nutrition is also present with calorie tracking and personalised alerts.
