Samsung Galaxy Note 9 hands-on: All about the S Pen

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 hands-on: All about the S Pen

While rolling out its new Galaxy Note 9 smartphone yesterday (Aug. 9), Samsung also teased a new smart-home speaker - the first with Bixby, the company's homegrown voice assistant.

Sticking with Samsung for a moment, the S9 Plus arrived earlier this year at great expense, but thankfully prices fell fast and far.

Details on the device are scant, and Samsung did not announce pricing or availability. Now that we're done with what the Galaxy Note 8 came with inside its retail box, let's take a look at what you'll get with Samsung's latest Galaxy Note 9. The S-Pen button can also be used to pause and play media, and control presentations.

The 128GB costs £899, while the 512GB costs £1,099.

'We've instituted a water-based carbon cooling system that is unique to Samsung, in addition to the eight-step battery safety check we created, ' Beaumont, who is director of product management, services and commercial strategy at Samsung UK and Ireland, told Metro.co.uk. Samsung's new smart speaker will compete with Amazon's strong lineup of Echo speakers and Apple's HomePods.

This could definitely be on the cards in the future - after all, there are many devices from many manufacturers that support Spotify Connect: "Spotify continues to partner with other smartphone/in-home device makers and is now integrated with over 300 products across 80 hardware brands including a number of in-home devices and cars", we were told.

But Samsung's assertion that a finger is the only other option besides the Apple Pencil just isn't true. At last it matches the Huawei Mate's battery of 4,000mAh.

Nutrition is also present with calorie tracking and personalised alerts.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch is the best smartwatch Samsung has ever made. Instead Samsung shaved off the edges to make it look thinner.
