She also showed off the Wireless Charger Duo, also leaked prior to the event, upon which users can charge both the Note 9 and the Galaxy Watch simultaneously.

Samsung is under pressure to jump-start faltering smartphone sales after posting its slowest quarterly profit growth in more than a year, as rivals such as China's Huawei Technologies nipped at its heels with cheaper, feature-packed models.

Health is a major focus for the Galaxy Watch, and as such Samsung Health is now expanded with new stress management and breathing features, as well as a collection of 21 indoor exercises and 39 tracked workouts.

The Exynos 9810 has four 2.7GHz Samsung Mongoose M3 CPU cores for big tasks, and four 1.8GHz Arm Cortex-A55 cores for everything else.

For the past several Samsung Galaxy phone releases, the Korean giant has often offered the best deal on its newest phone through its own store. Let us know down below! Purists can turn the feature off to get images that reflect what the eye sees - an option unavailable with Pixel. In contrast, the Note 9 is - at 8.8 mm - actually thicker than the Note 8 before it.

That's the issue - smartphones are now so capable that there's not really that much further to go, so unless a brand materially changes the design and ways of using the phone (as Apple did with the iPhone X) then there's not much to really excite consumers.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch is the best smartwatch Samsung has ever made. You're looking at about $1,250 for the version with more storage and RAM.

It also confounded predictions that the firm would swap Tizen for Google's Android Wear operating system.

Back on the Galaxy Watch, this one comes with full Spotify compatibility thanks to Samsung's recently-announced collaboration with the music streaming service.

But now we have proper confirmation from Unpacked that the Samsung Galaxy Watch is absolutely happening. And Samsung also teased its first Bixby-powered home speaker, Galaxy Home, a distinctive tripod design that resembles a hipster barbecue. Watch this space for more information on the Samsung Galaxy Home speaker as and when it emerges...

I don't want to ask for too much, but if Samsung can do what it just did with pricing and apply it to bloatware and unnecessary software pre-installed software on future devices, I think everyone would appreciate it. On this side of the pond, I've been emailed by Carphone Warehouse in the United Kingdom saying you can get a Galaxy Note9 for £46 per month on with 30GB per month and zero upfront cost.

The Bluetooth-only models of the Galaxy Watch will be available on August 24 starting at $329.
