Samsung holding separate launch event before Unpacked and IFA, but what for?

With the recent revelation that the much-anticipated Samsung Galaxy X isn't going to be the long-rumored folding and flexible OLED phone, but instead a phone which focuses on gaming, many have been left scratching their heads about what's going on. Now, the Note 9 actually hasn't been confirmed yet but it's inevitable considering Samsung's penchant for releasing new mobile it wouldn't surprise us if it did get announced with Fortnite as an added bonus. The first of these focuses on battery life and the nightmare that is running out of juice while away from home.

Even if the monitor features a single USB-C port, attaching a USB-C dongle with a boatload of ports will also get the job done. It could be less than 20,000 units, but being first would be a big win for Huawei. It is said to come with a 6.4-inch Wide Quad High Definition (WQHD) screen with 18.5:9 aspect ratio, thinner bezels resulting in more than 85 percent screen-to-body ratio. However, fresh information reveals that Huawei may beat Samsung by launching the world's first foldable phone by early 2019.

The company is also said to have enhanced the ISOCELL technology for Galaxy Note9's camera, in addition to enhanced Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) and variable aperture (F1.5-F2.4) to capture high-quality pictures in low-light.

Samsung will begin sales of its Galaxy Watch smartwatch on August 24 together with the Galaxy Note 9, ZDNet Korea reports. The launch event will take place in the New York City on the 9th of August 2018.

Samsung's second Galaxy Note 9 teaser video poses the question 'Phone too slow?' while showing devices struggling to download files and stream, with the user turning off all background activity in an attempt to speed things up.
