Galaxy Note 9 now available for pre-order in India

Samsung launches the Galaxy Note9 with 6.4-inch screen

Samsung unveiled its next major smartphone at a NY event on Thursday. The device resembles more of a "tock" upgrade in a standard product cycle that lasts for two years. Samsung's Super AMOLED displays are attractive. For example, they'll give you $450 off today if you trade-in a Galaxy S9 or S9+.

The trademark feature of the Note series is the S Pen stylus. With the S9+ coming in at 6.2 inches and the Note9 coming in at 6.4 inches, that former differentiator is gone. We already know about the US, UK and DE availability but what about India? When the Note first came out, the S Pen was really only useful for swipe typing, doodling and writing quick notes. It's a more sensible location, meaning you won't smudge the lens with mucky fingers every time you unlock your phone.

The digital pen can be used as a remote camera shutter, and a presentation remote that allows users to flip through presentation slides. Instead, the company is launching the beta version of the game for Android users with Samsung Galaxy devices. The S Pen, which now supports Bluetooth Low Energy, is just a touch heavier as well. Regular pen usage will still work.

Being a big phone release from the biggest Android manufacturer, the Note 9 will have plenty of third-party accessories like screen protectors, rugged cases and auto mounts for your employees to use to keep the phone itself safe. It is expected that Huawei might launch its flagship device Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro at IFA 2018.

The camera in the Note 9 will use artificial intelligence to detect what's in a scene - whether that's food, flowers or a sunset - to automatically tweak images to make them pop. "But it isn't likely to get people to consider the Note for the very first time".

The 960fps Super Slow Mo feature has been improved. The display is HDR 10 complaint and it is also enabled with Always on Display feature.

The crowd went wild as players surrounded the World Cup victor , but one fan, who was named after the great George Best was celebrating more than most.

Among some changes from its previous releases, the fingerprint scanner has been placed under the camera in order to reach it easily. Last year's Galaxy Note8 (and the S8) placed it to the right side of the camera, causing users to accidentally smudge the camera with their fingers.

The Galaxy Watch isn't that different from the Gear S3 in terms of physical appearance. One comes with 6GB RAM, other one has 8GB RAM. If it earlier appealed to the compulsive doodler, now it will find favour among the selfie addicts, professors who have to make presentations and even those who consume a bit too much of YouTube. The larger 46mm model comes in at 13mm. You'll get a free band if you pre-order it by August 23 via Samsung's website. Qualcomm is holding an event where it will likely announce a new smartwatch processor on September 10, but as it stands right now, the state of the Wear OS ecosystem is bad.

Galaxy Watch's LTE connectivity is available across over 30 carriers and more than 15 countries. That means that if you're out exercising, you can use it to stream music and such.

Samsung officially entered the smart home market with its new Bixby-powered home speaker, called Galaxy Home. The consistent leader in the global smartphone market, the company nonetheless suffered a 22 percent drop in mobile technology sales in the second quarter.

The smartphone will also be available on Flipkart in India, for which the pre-orders will begin during its Freedom Day sale, a latest teaser on the e-commerce site suggested on Friday.
