£48pm The iPhone 8 Plus is nearly a year old now, but the price remains quite high - but it's still cheaper than the Galaxy Note 9.
Spotify CEO Daniel Ek demonstrates how music playback can be done seamlessly between the Note 9 and the Galaxy Home smart speaker. Further, expect longer battery life, as the Note 9's 4,000 mAh battery is much larger than the 3,300 mAh battery in the Note 8. Under the hood, the device is powered by an Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC paired with Adreno 630 GPU. That's just the base model, though. The Note 9, which was launched in two storage options 128GB and 512GB will be retailing in the country at a starting price of Rs 67,900.
On top of the Note 9 reveal, Samsung also unveiled a new smartwatch and a new version of their AI, Bixby. The adjustable aperture module debuted on the Galaxy S9, and was one of the only upgrades over the GS8. This pressure-sensitive stylus would be well suited for taking notes on the iPhone X or iPhone 8 Plus, but support for the Pencil is limited to Apple's tablets. That was a real hand-stretcher.
There is no doubt this is another feature aimed at business and productivity users - you can imagine offices all over the place using their Note phones to make presentations, with the S Pen used to move to the next slide.
Its the biggest ever note at 6.4in, with a massive 4000mAh battery and the inclusion of a Bluetooth enabled S Pen. Although, it seems a bit underutilized.
'I would say the functionality of the S Pen with Bluetooth, ' replied Beaumont when asked what her number one feature of the new phone would be. When the Note first came out, the S Pen was really only useful for swipe typing, doodling and writing quick notes. Samsung cleverly included inductive charging in the S Pen, so it'll fill up when docked in the phone. And even if the battery is dead, it'll still work as an old-school S-Pen. It recharges in less than a minute, too.
A few weeks ago, Samsung launched an ad showing a customer asking an Apple Store employee about how Samsung's phones get faster download speeds than iPhones. The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are soon to be replaced by the third iteration, but the Google-made six-incher 2 XL is jam-packed with quality, and is now upgradable to Android 9 Pie.

With UK pricing now announced, the 6GB/128GB model will cost £899 in the UK, while the 8GB/512GB model will set you back £1099.
