Flipping the phone over reveals the new dual-lens camera that Samsung was keen to shout about at yesterday's event.

The 6.4-inch screen Note 9 will start at US$999.99 and max out at US$1,249.99 - becoming, at about US$100 above the iPhone X's upper limit, one of the world's most expensive consumer phones.

This latest S Pen has been outfitted with Bluetooth functionality that allows it to pair with the phone and act as a remote control. The new Note is set to hit stores on August 24, Samsung said.

The launch comes about three weeks earlier than its predecessor's release date, a move prompted by increased competition in the second half of the year as rivals release new smartphone models. The Galaxy Watch is available to preorder Friday, Aug. 10 and goes on sale Aug. 24 at Amazon, Best Buy and Samsung.

After months of rumours, leaks and plenty of speculation the Galaxy Note 9 has finally be unveiled.

As for software, it's typical Samsung: the Note9 ships with Oreo, and Samsung isn't making any promises as to when it will get Android 9 Pie.

The phablet - a cross between a smartphone and a tablet - would also be able to cool down quickly during game sessions that typically heat up phones a lot.

Its S Pen stylus is Bluetooth-enabled and created to act as a remote for controlling YouTube video playback.

For its smart speakers, Samsung has partnered with Spotify Technology SA for music streaming.

"The cellular model provides a true e-SIM experience so customers can also use their Galaxy Watch when roaming overseas, which we believe sets our smartwatch apart from our competitors", he said.

Although there are only minor changes on the outside there's plenty going on under the hood to make this a decent successor to the Galaxy Note 8. Profit in the mobile division fell by a third in the April-June quarter.
