How Spotify works with Samsung devices: New partnership and benefits explained

11 August 2018

The Note 9 is launching with Android 8.0 Oreo just a few weeks after Android 9 Pie is released. While, on paper, the Note 9's dual 12MP camera sounds identical to that on last year's model, Samsung claims that the new horizontally-aligned sensors are "more intelligent" than before, with its AI-fuelled camera app now letting you know when an image is flawed; if someone has blinked, for example.

Samsung has faced intense competition recent years, both from big names such as Huawei and longstanding rival Apple, and a raft of budget smartphone manufacturers.

Design-wise, the Samsung Galaxy Home is an interesting one.

Samsung Galaxy Home features: What's inside? This is thanks to Samsung SmartThings support.

The key, I feel, is the large circular face, which feels bang on-trend, as well as premium-looking metal body, which also feels very durable and serious on the wrist.

Colour-wise there's Oceaon Blue, Lavender Purple, Black, and Copper.

In addition to the expected smart watch features such as reminders, messages and scheduling, the Galaxy Watch is pushing heavily into the fitness and wellness space, with a particular focus on the latter. The price for the standard 6GB/128GB version is INR 67,900 ($985) while the 8GB/512GB is INR 84,900 ($1,232).

It may be the hottest gadget in town right now, but Samsung has promised that its new phone will absolutely not catch fire like one of its ill-fated predecessors. We also know that Spotify is partnering with Samsung so that you can control that streaming service using your voice. Additionally, this year the first thing that you see after removing the retail box's cover is the mini-box for the Note 9's guides.

In terms of OS, the Galaxy Watch retains Tizen, now in its 4.0 incarnation.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch is the best smartwatch Samsung has ever made. However, it falls just short of an instabuy, and especially so if you have the Gear S3 or Gear Sport. All components are glued in order to prevent moisture from building inside and also to protect the internals from taking water.

It also adds to the sleep tracking experience by monitoring all levels of sleep, including REM cycles, to help users adjust sleeping habits and get the rest they need to take on their day. It also simply looks more like a regular watch, which is definitely something to approve of.

But, from a safety standpoint, there was no way around it. Samsung shared the findings of an investigation into the phone with the wider industry in an effort to make sure the lithium-ion batteries we all walk around with in our pockets stay flame-free.
