Unboxing for Business: Samsung Galaxy Note 9 at Samsung Unpacked

Unboxing for Business: Samsung Galaxy Note 9 at Samsung Unpacked

Samsung is expected to unveil its next major smartphone at a NY event on Thursday.

Samsung said the Galaxy Home comes with the surround-sound system, and is capable of recognizing distant voices with its eight microphones.

During Samsung " s Galaxy Note 9 announcement, the availability of Fortnite beta was announced for mobile phones, well, that game is now exclusive to some of Samsung's gadgets, but in its press release, Epic Games announced that Fornite Android Beta will "being opening for other devices over the next few days".

The Galaxy Note is Samsung's larger flagship phone, which includes a built-in stylus - the S Pen - and on the Note 9 features a 6.4in Super AMOLED display. Samsung at first recalled the phone, then killed the Note 7 line altogether, waiting until 2017's Note 8 to try again.

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

The announcement is likely to be the first of several new flagship smartphones announced over the next two months, with rivals Apple, Huawei, Google and others all expected to announce their latest handsets by early October as the smartphone market enters one of its traditionally busiest periods. 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).

The camera will also alert users if it detects a blur in a photo so they can quickly retake it.

As with the Pixel, the Note won't be saving a version without the tweaks. The key reason why a person invests in a Note-series device is the stylus capability. The stylus can now act as a remote for clicking images and it also offers pressure sensitivity through the only switch: Short Press, Long Press, and Doubly Press.

Customers who are pre-booking the Galaxy Note 9 will also get a chance to buy Samsung's Gear Sports smartwatch for a discounted price of Rs 4,999 instead of the original price of Rs 22,990.

The Android version of the popular game Fortnite is launching Thursday, and just as the rumors suggested, it will be available exclusively on Samsung devices, at least for a few days. Samsung's current speaker, the Invoke, uses Microsoft's Cortana assistant.
