It takes a lot to break the stranglehold of Samsung and Apple, but Huawei has done it in 2018 with its 6.1-inch wonder.

The phone is also available in two configurations - 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage, or 8GB RAM and a massive 512GB of internal storage.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 wallpapers are very colorful and abstract.

If the Note9's steep starting price puts you off, but you want in on the Samsung life, Cricket has a deal that might interest you.

The device that runs OS Android 8.1 (Oreo) will have the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 system-on-chip (SoC) for the USA customers and the models powered by Samsung's very own "Exynos 9 Series 9810" chips will head to the rest of the world, including India. The image shows the rear panel of the devices and with that the company aims to highlight the camera innovation it has introduced.

From the S Pen with Bluetooth capabilities to other top features. It can guide entire presentations at office meetings. It promised more details at its developers' conference in November. In all honesty, these are the areas which have changed least since the Note 8.

Samsung poured all its resources into the Galaxy Note 9 after disappointing sales of the Galaxy S9 in the first half of this year led to smartphone sales dropping by eight million compared to the same period of 2017 and its global market share fell 1.7 percentage points.

The flagship smartphone has also retained the iconic 3.5-mm headphone jack. And even if the battery is dead, it'll still work as an old-school S-Pen.

The S Pen was another great surprise, and using it as a stylus or a remote control was a cool experience. We have previously seen Samsung phones launch with a Dex dock, which allows the phone to be used as a traditional PC - plugged into a monitor. The other colours have a matching colour S-pen.

But now we have proper confirmation from Unpacked that the Samsung Galaxy Watch is absolutely happening.

The larger 46mm version of the Galaxy Watch is also the variant that grants you the much-hyped new battery, with a 472mAh stack of cells loaded in to it, which is a marked increase from the 270mAh delivered by the 42mm.

Fortnite Galaxy skin is one of the new cosmetics coming to Epic Games's hit Battle Royale shooter. Buyers who pre-book the device will get a chance to own a Samsung Gear Sport smartwatch for Rs 4,999, which originally costs Rs 22,990, the company said in a statement.

You will be able to use the automatic switching and setup services on Samsung devices even if you don't have a Spotify Premium account: "Spotify users on both Free or Premium will have access to the Samsung multi-device integration across mobile, speakers and TV".

It is, though, far more stylish than previous incarnations by the South Korean maker, and comes packing some neat new abilities such as Bixby Voice and competitive water resistance, making for a compelling package.

It should be noted though that these figures are based on the 46mm model. You can multi-task with this intelligent assistant.
