Samsung's Galaxy Note 9 is stopgap ahead of major revamp, say analysts

Apparently Samsung might put triple-lens cameras on everything from flagships down to entry-level handsets in 2019, and it's thought that a new Galaxy A model will be the first to sport them, rather than the Samsung Galaxy S10, with the former likely to be announced in December 2018 or January, and the latter in February. In the camera section, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 packs a Dual 12MP (f/1.5-2.4) + 12 MP (f/2.4) in the rear side along with heart sensor and fingerprint reader.

Around 1,000 industry figures, media reps and consumers were invited to the event, where they listened to singer Kim Jong-kook and actress Park Min-young explain different functions.

Samsung also plans launch events in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam.

As for the S Pen stylus, used for note-taking and general navigation around the phone, Samsung has added a few features. Much like the path that Apple has taken with incremental design updates with the iPhone 7 Plus one year before the release of the iPhone X, it is believed that Samsung is planning for a more aggressive design update next year.

And Mourinho also disagreed with Woodward over the future of Anthony Martial, with the United manager happy for the French forward to be sold.

After the Note 9 "Unpacked" event in NY on Thursday, preorders began in the USA on Friday.

Now with Bluetooth Low-Energy (BLE) support, the new S Pen delivers an entirely new way to use the Note.

The new device comes with a brand new S Pen.

The price of the 128-gigabyte Note 9 is set at 1.09 million won ($965), while the 512-GB Note 9 costs 1.35 million won. Now this isn't a big surprise, but it does mean that the latest and greatest from Samsung is running on - what is now - an old version of Android. While many reports have pointed to certain rumored features, a newer one suggests that the iPhone X might trump the Galaxy Note 9 in a more fundamental, general area - benchmark performance.

The smart speaker may have a better shot outside the United States, said Patrick Moorhead, analyst at Moor Insights & Strategy.

The world's largest smartphone seller (Yes, Apple's the third largest), Samsung made a decision to surprise the world with their own "me-too" ish smart speaker.
