Samsung Galaxy Watch gets official, joins the Unpacked party

Today is the day Samsung gets to confirm all the rumours and leaks, showing us the Galaxy Note 9 at the Galaxy Unpacked Event.

The device will be available at prices starting Rs.67,900.

Pre-orders for the smartphone will kick off tomorrow on 10 August, with the 6GB/128GB model costing £899, and the 8GB /512GB storage model priced at £1,099. HDFC Bank also is providing a cashback of ₹6,000 to customers shopping via HDFC debit and credit cards and also when buying the phone through HDFC's consumer durable loans.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 sports a 6.4-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity display with 516PPI and a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass on top of it for protection against scratches. The available colors are Midnight Black, Ocean Blue and Metallic Copper and the latter comes only in 128GB flavor. Under the hood, the device is powered by an Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC paired with Adreno 630 GPU.

The Galaxy Watch sticks to the same rotating bezel design as the Gear lineup and runs on Samsung's Tizen OS.

The larger battery is the first time Samsung has tried out a bigger power unit after the fires and overheating that nearly destroyed the Note series of smartphones. The company has also announced incentives for those who make pre-orders on this device. You'll get an immediate notification if the image is blurry, if the subject blinked, if there is a smudge on the lens or if there is backlight impacting the quality of the image. For shooting selfies, it is equipped with autofocus enabled f/1.7 aperture 8-megapixel camera.

Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland issued a statement later in the day refusing to walk back Canada's stance. The Saudi Foreign Ministry made the announcement early Monday, giving Ambassador Dennis Horak 24 hours to leave the kingdom.

When asked about the contract, Freeland said the government "looks forward" to hearing from Riyadh about the future of the deal. Thousands of jobs in Canada could be at risk if the arms agreement is scrapped.

If you pre-order the phone before August 23, you'll get the option to choose between one of two pricey perks. It supports both wired and wireless fast charging. That means, during the setup of your phone, you will be asked for your Spotify login details and the music streaming experience will therefore be completely set-up without you having to download an app manually.

Launching the Note 9 at NY, or Friday midnight in Seoul, Samsung also announced partnerships with global hit game Fortnite and music-streaming service Spotify Technology SA in a stepped-up challenge to Apple Inc in the premium-phone race.

The digital pen can be used as a remote camera shutter, and a presentation remote that allows users to flip through presentation slides. The new stylus packs a button, just like the previous models and this one is a little more functional.

With the Note 9, Samsung is ready to be more daring again.

One of the interesting things suggested by the teardown is that the Galaxy Note 9 is equipped with a bigger water-cooling system than the passive cooling in the Galaxy Note 9.
