"Samsung Unveils its Latest 6.4" Galaxy Note 9 Flagship Smartphone

Samsung Electronics Co. unveiled the Galaxy Note 9 in NY, banking on the larger-screen device to rejuvenate sales of a struggling flagship line and fend off Apple Inc.'s upcoming iPhones over the holidays. She also showed off the Wireless Charger Duo, also leaked prior to the event, upon which users can charge both the Note 9 and the Galaxy Watch simultaneously.

Geekbench 4 measures overall performance.

Samsung Galaxy users with an S7 or a later device will be able to play the game too, although their devices may not be as optimised for gaming as the Note 9. It'll ship with Samsung's in-house 10nm Exynos 9810 CPU (or Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 in the US), paired with either 6GB or 8GB RAM depending on whether you pick up the 128GB or 512GB model.

Samsung has nabbed the exclusive Android release of popular survival game Fortnite as part of the launch for its Note 9 phablet, which the company is marketing as a premium phone for gamers.

OnePlus 6 only costs $579.

The S Pen pops in and out of the phone's body with a satisfying click.

In 2013, Defense Distributed posted a YouTube video demonstrating what it said was a Liberator pistol made from 3D-printed parts. The hard-to-trace plastic weapons allow easy access to weapons for terrorists and unsafe criminals and threaten public safety.

Even in tough times, Samsung has a solid source of income it can lean on for investment: memory chips, an industry the world's biggest chipmaker controls with SK Hynix and Micron.

Corning, today announced that Samsung's newly introduced Galaxy Watch would come with its new glass composite called Corning Gorilla Glass DX+, which is highly scratch-resistant and anti-reflective. £899 / $999 for the base model? Samsung could simply launch a Galaxy S9+ with S Pen. The S Pen still uses Wacom technology though, so it's just the Bluetooth that uses the battery.

However, don't let this bold fashion statement fool you - the Galaxy Watch is as sturdy as they make them, employing Corning's tough Gorilla Glass DX+ glass, which is designed specifically for smartwatches. The style options include three new watch faces in Silver, Midnight Black and Rose Gold, and new customisable watch band colors.

Of course, if you just want a powerhouse (something you could use as a work phone, for example) then the Note 9 has you covered.

US carrier Verizon Communications Inc said the new device will be available for pre-order from August 10, with the 128 gigabyte model priced at $999.99 for the and 512GB model at $1,249.99. That's a pretty good estimate given how notoriously bad smartwatch battery life used to be - we are intrigued to test the Galaxy Watch and see for ourselves if it could reach the advertised battery life!
