The Bluetooth-only models of the Galaxy Watch will be available on August 24 starting at $329. That's going to be our new go-to watch face when wearing this. In terms of exterior functionality, the Galaxy Watch features some side-mounted buttons, as well as a rotatable bezel that allows for the cycling through of apps and menus.
It did reveal the speaker has eight microphones that will delivery "far-field voice recognition" for its Bixby. The purple phone comes with a purple pen and the black phone features a white pen.

This new device has just been shown to the world at Samsung's Unpacked event in NY with it boasting plenty of upgrades which could make it one of the most powerful phones ever.
Pre-orders for the smartphone will kick off tomorrow on 10 August, with the 6GB/128GB model costing £899, and the 8GB /512GB storage model priced at £1,099.
Sure, you may get more color options with the smaller watch, but if the big size fits you, we recommend that one for its extra battery capacity. This is likely due to the extra grunt needed to maintain a mobile connection. I didn't get chance to try out Bixby on the Galaxy Watch during our brief hands-on session though, so I will withhold judgement until I can test it out properly.

In terms of OS, the Galaxy Watch retains Tizen, now in its 4.0 incarnation.
Elsewhere, the Note 9 features AKG-tuned stereo speakers that are the "loudest ever" on a Samsung phone, a rear-positioned fingerprint scanner, Google's Android 8.1 Oreo OS, USB-C, a 3.5mm headphone jack, support for wireless charging and Samsung DeX, which can now be enabled using an HDMI adaptor.

In all honesty, I'm having a hard time really saying anything all that interesting about the Note9, even if Samsung would want me to talk up things like supercapacitors and intelligent camera.More news: Australia's most populous state is now entirely in drought
