Cameras on the Note 9 are similar to the S9+ but with smarter algorithms that detect what you're taking a picture of.

During the event, the company also unveiled its Samsung Galaxy watch with a wireless pad and charger duo for its watch and Note 9.

The big new feature for this round is, you guessed it, an AI camera.

The S-Pen comes in a fun color to complement your phone, and when you write on the screen in screen off memo mode, it will also write in that same fun color.

And most importantly, we're giving it the power that it needs from a battery perspective, so you can count on the watch to be able to be on when you need it to be on for up to several days with just one full charge.

It also comes with a Bluetooth-enabled stylus created to act as a remote for snapping photos and controlling YouTube video playback. Available in 42mm and 46mm sizes, the Watch looks stylish on the wrist, with a more professional look than the sporty appearance you get with many fitness-oriented wearables.

Its S Pen stylus is Bluetooth-enabled and created to act as a remote for controlling YouTube video playback.

As Colbert moved onto Pence's widely-mocked speech to the Defense Department , he imagined what it would've been like if John F. But he, too, isn't convinced that a Space Force is the answer. "We're building bipartisan support for our plan ", he said.

"In the US, Alexa is very entrenched and so is Google Assistant, so it might be a challenge, but not so much in other parts of the world", Moorhead said. Major changes tend to come every few years rather than annually, and this isn't the year for anything revolutionary in the Note.

- The Note 9 uses an all glass design, wrapped in a metal frame.

Samsung claims the smartwatch can be taken swimming thanks to 5ATM + IP68 water resistance, but cautions folks not to go scuba diving with it.

- The Galaxy Note 9 uses LTE CAT18, which can theoretically support 1gbps network speed. The fingerprint sensor is located at the back beneath the 12MP dual cameras, along with a health sensor that measures biometrics like heart rate, blood oxygen, and blood pressure.

So where can you pre-order the Note 9 ahead of its 24th August launch date? The device will be made available in four colours: blue (with yellow S Pen), lavender, copper, and black.

Once you've propped up your phone for the flawless shot or you're trying to take a group selfie with your friends, simply click the S Pen again to snap the picture. Pricing starts at $999.99 so it is not for the faint of wallet or purse, however there are buy one, get one (BOGO) offers available at Best Buy to significantly soften the blow.

But the hefty price tag - at US$999.99 for the base 128 gigabyte model, according to U.S. carrier Verizon Communications Inc - has raised questions as to whether features such as a longer battery life and quick cooling would be enough to attract customers. This will be for the 128GB variant with the 512GB variant priced at least Rs 5000 higher.
