A 21 percent boost in battery capacity from last year's Note 8 should translate to more than a day of normal use without a recharge.

On Thursday morning, Samsung took to the stage at the Barclays Center in New York City to officially announce the Galaxy Note 9.

Externally, the Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy Note 8 are nearly similar with only a few differences.

The Galaxy Note 9 is a large device - especially when compared to the Galaxy S9 and Apple iPhone X - and packs an impressive array of hardware and features.

These include an adaptive fast charger, eartips for the earphones, two USB-C adapters, a USB cable and AKG branded earphones. The number one smartphone maker recently launched its flagship device - Galaxy Note 9 and Huawei is poking fun at the company for not doing any major innovation in the handset. It will also be interesting to see if charging the S Pen from the Note 9's own internal battery has a negative affect on the daily battery life of the phone - but more on that below.

So you won't get asked to hand over the Note 9 before boarding an airplane?

Remove them and the phablet sits comfortably at the bottom of the package. Customers who pre-order the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 on Airtel Online Store can avail a special offer price of Rs 4999 on the Gear Sport on Samsung website. According to Counterpoint Research, Samsung's Note series contributes to roughly one-tenth of the global premium smartphone market.

Spotify will be fully integrated with the new flagship phone, but there is more to the alliance. We'll find out soon enough. "You know what I think is powerful?" the genius replies.

Samsung Galaxy Home design: What does it look like? And the 9 has niche pricing to match: the "cheaper" of the two Note 9 configurations (128GB flash, 6GB RAM) sets you back $999, the 512GB flash, 8GB RAM version $1,250.

The trademark feature of the Note series is the S Pen stylus. As ever there's microSD support for cards up to 512GB in size, meaning you can have up to 1TB of storage if you buy the bigger variant. Those who order from Sprint, though, may get their Note 9 early, as a press release from the company stated that handsets are "expected to be delivered as early as August 22".

Mr McGregor said the Galaxy Watch would also be the first cellular smartwatch to work with payment technology from all of Australia's "Big Four" banks, allowing users to pay for goods by tapping the wristwatch on contactless payment terminals at the counter.

In fact, it turns out that Samsung's plus-sized Note range of phones actually commands the most loyal fan base.
