TODO alt text

The anything-but-the-Note 9 brigade.

Launching the Note 9 at 11am.in 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 phone features a 6.4-inch screen, up to 512GB storage, an all-day battery capacity and a battery-powered stylus that could be used as a remote control for selfies.

One of the most important features on the Note 9 is its S-Pen, which comes with Bluetooth connectivity now. With the latest offering it has tackled the biggest challenge for a smartwatch: battery life. Luckily, Samsung has built supercapacitors into the new Note which charges up the Pen to 100% in just 40 seconds for an endurance of upto 30minutes. Other leaks suggest that the S Pen's color may be different from that of the body of one model of the phone for the first time. Here's what you can look forward to if Note9 is on your wish list. The Galaxy Note 9 also comes pre-loaded with Samsung apps like Samsung Health, Samsung Pay, and the Knox security platform.

"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. That might be a tough call as the Note 9 might not be a mass phone that it needs to be to rake in the volumes. In addition, the durability the watch is certified at Military level with Corning Gorilla Glass DX +, and water resistance with a rating of 5 ATM, allow long-term use, regardless of the environment.
