Samsung launches Galaxy Note 9 - its most powerful phone yet!

Samsung launches Galaxy Note 9 - its most powerful phone yet!

Unfortunately for us, today was essentially just a teaser for the Galaxy Home.

"You don't see massive breakthroughs anymore from a hardware perspective", said Carolina Milanesi, an analyst with Creative Strategies. However, that's not necessarily a bad thing.

You can find more on the Note 9, right here.

People are silhouetted as they pose with mobile devices in front of a screen projected with a Samsung logo, in this picture illustration taken in Zenica October 29, 2014. And yes, it's still a nasty fingerprint magnet.

You'll have to have an LTE plan enabled for you to do this though, so it may cost you a bit extra each month.

The only way to tell that it's a Galaxy Note9 is by looking at the rear camera module. One of the 12MP sensors is a Dual Pixel, dual aperture camera with f/1.5 and f/2.4 apertures, and the other is a 12MP telephoto camera with 2x optical zoom. Choosing the former prompts you to allow the Fortnite Installer to download via your browser, while the latter redirects you to the Samsung Galaxy Apps store. It has your usual screen off memo, smart select and live message but they have added something extra on the inside.

The company didn't immediately give a release date or prices for the Galaxy Watch, but we know it'll be available in three colors: Silver, Midnight Black and Rose Gold.

Additionally, the camera app will detect blinks or blurring, giving the phone user the option to quickly retake the shot.

An alternative read of the situation though is that it could just spring up at any time.

In addition to the new phone, Samsung unveiled several new products, including a new Galaxy Watch. There's an upgraded phone with 512GB of storage and 8GB of RAM.

There's also a 4,000mAh battery inside, the largest ever to feature inside a Note smartphone which Samsung is promising will deliver "all day" battery life. The camera is fast and responsive, images look great, and it feels very similar to the S9+'s shooting experience.

Despite being a productivity-focused smartphone, Samsung appears to be gearing the Note9 as an ultimate gaming device.

Samsung has said the Bluetooth only version of the watch is available to buy in the United Kingdom from now, but we have yet to find any retailers offering the watch and we don't currently know the price.

Additional disclosure: Investors are always reminded that before making any investment, you should do your own proper due diligence on any name directly or indirectly mentioned in this article.

There's also been an upgrade in the camera department.

We found that this feature works pretty seamlessly. Not unlike the Huawei P20 Pro's Master AI feature, Scene Optimiser lets the Note 9 recognise and enhance up to 20 different scenes. We'll save our verdict until we get a long-term unit. There's also Dolby Atmos for a virtual 3D environment sound. And unlike the iPhone, it still has a headphone jack.

The Galaxy Note9 is designed with the Note loyalist in mind.

Samsung also launched a new Galaxy Watch.
