    9 days ago - By Android Headlines

Besides Samsung's latest Android flagship , the company's list of HDR-certified devices now also includes the Galaxy Tab S4 tablet, Honor 10, and this year's high-end smartphones from LG - the G7 ThinQ and V35 ThinQ.
    As was the case before, only a portion of the Netflix library actually supports HDR playback, with shows and movies...

    Preorders open for the Galaxy Note 9 and it'll cost the same anywhere you get it

    9 days ago - By PC World

    Pre-orders have opened for the Galaxy Note 9, and there's a pleasant surprise. Anywhere you buy it will cost the same: $1,000 for the 128GB version and $1,250 for the 512GB model. OK, maybe those prices aren't exactly pleasant, but it is refreshing to see everyone get on board with Samsung's unlocked pricing. Carriers traditionally set their own rules when it comes to Android phones, making it difficult for customers to figure exactly how much the phone actually costs. While the monthly bill will still vary depending on whether you're on a 24-month payment plan, the final cost will be the...

  • Video: Hands On With Samsung Galaxy Note 9

    9 days ago - By Android Headlines

    Samsung's Galaxy Note 9 is probably one of the worst-kept secrets in the industry, with Samsung itself even leaking out its own marketing video just last week. As such, there aren't too many surprises in today's announcement, but there are definitely enough new things to take notice of over last year's Galaxy Note 8. First up, the S Pen, which is seeing the first major upgrade in years. While Samsung has added sensitivity levels and made some cosmetic adjustments over the years, this year it's adding Bluetooth Low Energy support, including remote control from far away by using the buttons...

    Samsung may have surprised few with the Galaxy Note 9's launch at Unpacked 2018 , given all the leaks surrounding the device, but the Galaxy Watch wasn't as easy to predict. That the company is pursuing wearables isn't surprising. I've lost count on how many Samsung has launched since the very first Galaxy Gear smartwatch back in 2013. Since then, the tech giant has abandoned Android in favour of Tizen, flirted with LTE connectivity and experimented with a variety of form factors and designs. Is the Galaxy Watch a game-changer in that regard? Probably not, but the fact it looks nicer is a...

T-Mobile does offer a way to save up to $500 off of the price of the Galaxy Note 9.

    Watching the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 launch was tough. After watching a decade of phone launches waxing and waning in bombast, the new Note launch felt like it was running on fumes a little bit.
    Let's skip past the lack of upgrades on the new Galaxy Watch , the ‘and-me' smart speaker and the decision to have ‘Mr Doodle' on stage drawing with a product launched a few weeks ago, and jump straight to the Note 9. There were a lot of marketing words spoken about the handset, about how it was ‘inspiring', ‘removed borders and interruptions' and basically worked with you... a lot of words that...

    Samsung says the Galaxy Note 9 is aimed at “those who want it all.” But can you really have it all, even at $999, from a phone that comes mere months before Samsung's true “next big thing”, widely expected to adopt a bunch of groundbreaking new technologies in an attempt to turn sluggish sales around?

    Why the Galaxy Note 9 is the new king of the enterprise

    9 days ago - By Android Central

    If you're a heavy business user, there are plenty of reasons to love the Note 9.
    The Note series has always been a bit... different. The original Galaxy Note was a behemoth - for the time - aimed squarely at enthusiasts. Compared to that year's Galaxy S II , the Note brought a bigger screen, more powerful internals, and the now-classic S Pen. Since that time, the Note series has switched between being an enthusiast's dream and being just a larger Galaxy S phone. In 2018, it looks like Samsung is priming the Note 9 to go back to being an enthusiast-first device.
    But just because it's aimed...

    9 days ago - By The Verge

    Samsung's new Galaxy Note 9 is official, and the company has once again outdone itself when it comes to putting a truly staggering amount of firepower into a phone. The top-of-the-line model offers a whopping 512GB of storage and 8GB of RAM, which are numbers that put most midrange laptops to shame.
    Specs that - on paper - could put some laptops to shame
    But in 2018, the smartphone market is already pretty tough. And both Apple and Google are already gearing up to release their own updated flagships this fall, so the Note 9's competition is only going to get tougher. As is now tradition...
