Everything Samsung announced at its Unpacked event

It's also a benefit for Samsung in selling its latest device as a gaming capable machine when new "gaming phones" are hitting the market. We take a close look at what's new with the Galaxy Note 9, and touch on the other announcements made.

The device runs Android 8.1 Oreo OS, the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset for the U.S. customers and the models powered by Samsung's very own "Exynos 9 Series 9810" chips will head to the rest of the world, including India.

The minor improvements reflect a smartphone industry that has largely pushed the limits on hardware.

The Note 9 will be Samsung's second Note model since its Note 7 was recalled because of its tendency to burst into flames. You can use it as a remote camera shutter, to control presentations, and adjust the volume in addition to using it as a stylus.

Samsung didn't reveal much about the Galaxy Home during its event.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 6GB RAM with128GB storage variant comes with the price tag of Rs. 67,900 (in India) and $999 (in the US), while the 8GB RAM with 512GB internal storage cost Rs. 84,900 (in India) and $1,250 (in the US).

Daniel Ives, an analyst with GBH Research, says the poor sales of the Note have been a "black cloud", for Samsung that it's yet to overcome.

The current Note 8 maxes out at 256 GB. The starting price of $1,000 is an increase from the Note 8, but on par with Apple's top-of-the-line iPhone X. The Note 9 will get double the storage, at 128 gigabytes, compared with typical high-end phones, including the iPhone X. Samsung will also sell a 512-gigabyte version for power users for $1,250. The camera will also alert you to any imperfections in your shot, like if it's too blurry or if someone blinked at the wrong time.

Samsung has announced the new Galaxy Home, its first smart speaker equipped with the voice assistant Bixby and equipped with all the features that allow it to integrate into the SmartThings ecosystem. The new smart speaker also supports Spotify music streaming service.
