Along with the Galaxy Note 9, Samsung also announced their new smartwatch. As the successor to 2016’s Gear S3, the Galaxy Watch still looks great and brings refinements to the table, but there’s not much more to it.
The Galaxy Watch looks a lot like the Gear S3 and it’ll come it two sizes: 42mm and 46mm. You can choose which size is ideal for your wrist; both have the same Super AMOLED display and come in either Rose Gold, Black, or Silver with interchangeable watch bands.
The new smartwatch is not that different from its predecessor with its full-circle display, built-in GPS, and rotating crown to be used for UI navigation. What’s new with the Galaxy Watch are its software features. Contrary to early rumors, the wearable still runs Tizen, and that’s a good thing because the homebaked OS runs perfectly on a Samsung smartwatch.
New features include a Smart Digital Assistant which gives you briefings from the moment you wake up and before you hit the bed. There’s also improved auto fitness and wellness tracking. It automatically detects 39 exercises and back-to-back workouts.
Endurance-wise, Samsung promises long-lasting battery life thanks to the smartwatch’s efficient Exynos 9110 processor. The 46mm model can last up to seven days in Low Usage mode or for 24 hours with GPS turned on.
Samsung’s new Galaxy Watch will go on sale sometime in September.
Samsung Galaxy Note 9: YouTubers React
Is the Note line back to its glory?
Michael Fisher, Danny Winget, Joshua Vergara, Jaime Rivera of Pocketnow, David Imel and Lanh Nguyen of Android Authority, Ricky Vilcrez of GSM Arena, and Faisal Alsaif tell us what they think about the new Samsung Galaxy Note 9.
Aside from a reimagined S Pen, there are other new things about the Samsung Galaxy Note 9: a larger battery, top of the line internals, and some heft in the pocket — both literally and figuratively. But are these improvements compelling enough for Note users to upgrade? And for non-Note users out there, is now the time to switch?
Samsung Galaxy Note 9 live unboxing
Fresh and brand new!
Samsung’s newest flagship smartphone is finally here and we’re taking it out of the box just for you! In this Galaxy Note 9 live unboxing, we check out what’s inside the box and answer some of the questions of live viewers.
The Galaxy Note 9 looks a lot like its predecessor, the Galaxy Note 8, but it has some pretty nifty upgrades. The S Pen is now equipped with Bluetooth and functions as a remote so you can use it for presentations, taking remote selfies, cycling through your photos in your gallery, and more!
The camera is the same as the one on the Samsung Galaxy S9+ but with some software improvements. The Galaxy Note 9 has what Samsung is calling an intelligent camera which automatically detects scenes and adjusts settings so there’s little to no editing required on your end. Just post right away! There’s also flaw detection that tells you if you need to retake the photo. That’s pretty neat!

Fortnite arrives on Android as direct download on Samsung’s Game Launcher
Rumors about Fortnite and Galaxy Note 9 were partially false
While Epic Games made it clear that Fortnite isn’t coming to the Google Play Store — instead becoming a direct download from the developer’s official website — rumors brewed about the popular battle royale game becoming a timed exclusive to the newly released Galaxy Note 9.
As it turns out, it’s partially true. The following Galaxy phones will get first dibs on Android’s own Fortnite:
- Note 9
- Note 8
- Tab S4
- Tab S3
- S9 and S9+
- S8 and S8+
- S7 and S7 Edge
Samsung says these phones and tablets can download the game beginning today through the Game Launcher app. The company claims this exclusivity will last for the next few days only.
Although the game will come to more Android devices in waves, Galaxy Note 9 and Tab S4 users will get special access to — you guessed it — a Galaxy skin for their in-game character.
Here’s the official trailer to get you pumped up:
