Samsung unveils its first smart speaker, the Galaxy Home

Epic’s changing Fortnite matchmaking to save console players from keyboard and mouse

The Samsung Galaxy Watch was just announced at the latest Samsung Unpacked event in NY, but we don't now have an exact release date or a price.

Samusng uneils the Galaxy Note 9 during an Unpacked event at the Barclays Center in New York City on August 9, 2018.

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

Along with the Galaxy Note 9, Samsung is launching a new smartwatch and revealing a smart speaker at its Unpacked event today. Its flat top has an array of control buttons that will let you skip tracks and change the volume, according to the Verge. The device has a "water carbon cooling system", which spreads and ultimately dissipates heat from the chipset using carbon fiber to, ideally, prevent overheating. Thanks to this connectivity option you can use the S Pen as a remote for taking selfies or group photos, slide presentation control, movie transport control and more. One of the 12MP sensors is a Dual Pixel, dual aperture camera with f/1.5 and f/2.4 apertures, and the other is a 12MP telephoto camera with 2x optical zoom. Users can install the game in the Samsung Game Launcher app.

As part of the exclusivity deal, you'll be able to download a special Galaxy skin if you play the game on a Galaxy Note 9 or a Galaxy Tab 4. The 512GB Model is also available for $1,249.99 or $30 a month for 24 months ($529.99 down). That SoC comes paired with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of flash storage in the base Note 9, while an upgraded version offers 8 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage.

Samsung used its big event in NY to showcase its supposedly improved Bixby service. It'll also allow more accurate writing and drawing on the phone's screen. Here you've got the choice of Midnight Black or Rose Gold colors. The new S Pen has a low power Bluetooth module which charges instantly each time you stow it into the phone.

Samsung has also carried over the latest features from the S9+ to the Galaxy Note9.

Elsewhere, the Note 9 features AKG-tuned stereo speakers that are the "loudest ever" on a Samsung phone, a rear-positioned fingerprint scanner, Google's Android 8.1 Oreo OS, USB-C, a 3.5mm headphone jack, support for wireless charging and Samsung DeX, which can now be enabled using an HDMI adaptor.

Finally, we have the Galaxy Note 9's camera performance.

Though not much was shared about the device itself during the event, the South Korean giant did mention that it would share further details at its developer conference, which should take place sometime later this year.
