A substantial amount of buzz has been generated regarding the upcoming release of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. If you need even more space for multitasking prowess, there will also be a 512GB storage/8GB RAM option. It's getting a minimum of 128GB of storage, 6GB of RAM, and still keeps the microSD slot. And it's the "premium" status that sets the Galaxy Home apart in an already saturated market; Samsung promises high-quality audio, stressing the Galaxy Home's "amazing sound and elegant design".

Note 8 was a hit model a year ago - post the debacle which Galaxy Note 7 created within the consumer mindset. As with the S9 it has the variable dual-aperture system (f/1.5 and f/2.4) created to mimic the human eye, a 2x optical zoom on the secondary lens, and a dual-pixel sensor for super slow-mo video recording.

As you can see below, the big discounts aren't just for Samsung devices. It can detect if someone screws up your picture, and notifies you so you can have another go.

The camera will also offer a warning if someone blinked in a shot, or if the image is blurry.

Firstly, the Note 9 ships with a new and improved S Pen, which comes with Bluetooth LE (Low Energy) baked-in for the first time. But that's not all. Samsung showcased this last one on stage in real time, showing us that there's no limit to the size of the presentation itself. Since the very first Note, the S Pen has been an unpowered inductive stylus based on Wacom technology.

The phablet also comes with an updated version of Samsung's signature S Pen, which will not only allow owners to draw with their phones but click to take selfies and interact with their phone.

"We're three generations removed now", Samsung's director of USA product marketing, Suzanne De Silva, said of the company's renewed confidence in the battery. With the Note 9, Samsung has added Bluetooth functionality to the S Pen. Here's what you need to know. Unfortunately this needs to be one of Samsung's special dongles, rather than any old adaptor you can purchase online.

You might love the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 wallpapers, but aren't ready to spend $1,000 to experience them.

And that redesign really is key, arguably, to the success of the Galaxy Watch, as despite this new smartwatch packing some neat new features, the fact that it looks more like a regular watch will no-doubt be the foremost decider in whether potential adopters pull the trigger.

It will come as a surprise to absolutely no one that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is now official following the company's Unpacked event.

The 42mm Galaxy Watch, which has a 1.2-inch (30mm) display and overall dimensions of 41.9 x 45.7 x 12.7mm, can be paired with 20mm straps in following colour schemes: Terracotta Red, Onyx Black, Lunar Grey, Natural Brown, Cosmo Purple, Lime Yellow, Pink Beige, and Cloud Grey.
