In a jab at Apple, Samsung executives also frequently emphasize that their phones have standard headphone jacks, which newer iPhones no longer do. Watch this video to know more.

What makes the Note series and the Galaxy Note 9 so popular among Android fans is the plethora of features.

SAMSUNG HAS SURPRISED no one with the unveiling of the Galaxy Note 9, which is exactly what you were expecting it to be.

And, as expected, Samsung announced that Fornite for Android will also make its long-awaited debut on the Galaxy Note 9. Available in 42mm and 46mm sizes, it has a 360×360 AMOLED display that's scratch resistant and is water-resistant up to 5ATM. The only real sacrifice is in your wallet since it costs around $1,000.

The new phones will come out August 24.

Russia Condemns New US Sanctions as ‘Unlawful’
His administration has sanctioned a number of Russian officials and oligarchs for human rights abuses and election meddling. But U.S. officials had not yet confirmed the use of banned nerve agents in the attack.

Samsung made a big deal about how it "invented" the big phone with the first Note, but it seems hell-bent on seeing how much bigger it can get away with. In the US, the Galaxy Watch LTE version will be available through AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon as well as at Samsung. 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. I typically tend to switch to my classic analogue timepiece when going out, however, after trying the Galaxy Watch on I am quite confident that it wouldn't feel out of place in the theater, or during pre- and post-show drinks. The available colors are Midnight Black, Ocean Blue and Metallic Copper and the latter comes only in 128GB flavor.

Let's skip past the lack of upgrades on the new Galaxy Watch, the "and-me" smart speaker and the decision to have "Mr Doodle" on stage drawing with a product launched a few weeks ago, and jump straight to the Note 9.

More than half of those sales were claimed by Apple, however, which launched a cellular version of its Watch in September a year ago. Where the models differ is that the LTE/4G Galaxy Watch has more RAM (1.5GB), compared to the Bluetooth models' 768MB. You can easily switch between the various tracking functions and modes by rotating the Galaxy Watch's bezel. It also has eight far-field microphones for use with the assistant. I didn't get chance to try out Bixby on the Galaxy Watch during our brief hands-on session though, so I will withhold judgement until I can test it out properly.

Moving towards 3D Mark Slingshot Extreme 3.1, the Galaxy Note 9, iPhone X and OnePlus 6 scored 4639, 4994, and 5124 points respectively.
