Samsung’s new Galaxy Watch runs Tizen, lasts "several days" on one charge

TODO alt text

A display brightness test for the Galaxy Note 9 reveals that the device has a peak luminosity of 604 nits, considerably greater than the iPhone X and OnePlus 6 which score 547 each. 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. If you need even more space for multitasking prowess, there will also be a 512GB storage/8GB RAM option.

If you already pre-ordered the phone, plan on picking one up, or are just curious, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 forums are open now!

That's pretty much it though - as the camera uses the same tech as in the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, the stereo speakers aren't new, and the S Pen is locked to the Note series, so the upgrades there aren't going to make much difference to the S10.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 specs: A noteworthy leap in performance? That was a real hand-stretcher. Fact aside that big phones would have nearly certainly been a thing even if Samsung hadn't ever built the first Note, it's easy to see why this kind of marketing is effective; the idea that by buying a phone you're not just buying a phone, you're expressing your loyalty to a particular tribe of the larger smartphone community. "Thus, the Note 9 serves primarily to keep the Note customer base happy until the anticipated design changes expected in 2019 along with new technologies like foldable displays".

Samsung launched the Note 9 at 11 a.m.in NY on Thursday, or Friday midnight in Seoul. An upcoming public SDK will allow developers to program custom functions into their apps specifically for use with the S Pen. After watching a decade of phone launches waxing and waning in bombast, the new Note launch felt like it was running on fumes a little bit. There's a much larger battery, likely improved screen technology, an improved camera, a more capable S Pen, more capacity as standard and stereo speaker for your money. It recharges in less than a minute, too.

Elsewhere, the Note 9 features AKG-tuned stereo speakers that are the "loudest ever" on a Samsung phone, a rear-positioned fingerprint scanner, Google's Android 8.1 Oreo OS, USB-C, a 3.5mm headphone jack, support for wireless charging and Samsung DeX, which can now be enabled using an HDMI adaptor. However, in this metric, the Galaxy S9+ and LG's G7 ThinQ top out the Note 9, managing to score 630 and 900 nits in light output. In contrast, the Gear S3 cost $349 (£349) at launch, so providing you plump for the smaller model, this time you can get hooked up for $20 less.
