Just a few days after Google launched Android 9 Pie into the public, HTC is already stepping up to confirm which of its own devices will be getting the new software.
Yesterday, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Note 9, its biggest and most powerful Note handset yet. The Note 9 in many ways embodies what a Note device truly stands for: a big bad-ass smartphone filled to the brim with top-notch features. While the Note 9 itself is pretty impressive, the S Pen is even more impressive this time around.
The Google Pixel 3 XL is starting to get even more attention from the rumor mill, which certainly makes sense as we march ever closer to its expected launch date later this year.
Samsung yesterday unveiled the Galaxy Note 9 and immediately started taking pre-orders for the handset in most markets of the world. In most parts of the world, Samsung is bundling a $299 AKG wireless headphones with the Note 9, though it is also offering a Fortnite bundle in some regions where users will get $150 worth of goodies for free in Fortnite. In Singapore though, Samsung has the best pre-order offer for the Note 9.
Although Epic Games has tried to keep it under wraps, Fortnite’s arrival on Android was never really a secret. Thanks to a flurry of leaks, it was discovered a week ago that the app wouldn’t make its way to the Google Play Store. With the Galaxy Note 9 going official today, the company has announced its partnership with Epic Games and made the game immediately available for users of Samsung devices.
Rumors had been swirling for awhile that Samsung was planning on unveiling a new smartwatch, which would feature a rebranding and maybe even a change of operating system.
Alongside the Galaxy Note 9 and the Galaxy Watch, Samsung also gave a glimpse at its new Bixby-powered speaker: the Galaxy Home. The speaker features a very unique design, with a three-leg stand and the top half looking like an inverted Google Home.
Samsung was among the first few Android OEMs to include a handy IR blaster on its flagship Galaxy S and Note devices. Since the Galaxy S6 though, the company has had a change of heart and has not bothered including the handy sensor on its flagship devices.
Samsung today unveiled the Galaxy Note 9 at its Unpacked event. The handset is Samsung’s 2018 last major flagship release and comes after the launch of the Galaxy S9 earlier this year.
Later today, Samsung will be unveiling the Galaxy Note 9 at an Unpacked event in New York. Almost every detail about the Note 9 has already leaked but if you are still interested in the device, you can watch the event live right from the comfort of your couch.
