The Korean giant unveiled the device at its Unpacked event in NY on Thursday alongside the company's new Galaxy Note 9 smartphone. With one click of a button on the side of the stylus, you can, for example, snap selfies without having to contort your fingers to reach the control on the phone's screen.

The Note 9 will have Samsung's octa-core Samsung Exynos 9810 processor in the United Kingdom or an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 in the USA, with a choice of either 6 or 8GB of RAM, depending on storage variant.

For Galaxy Home pricing and availability, Samsung didn't announce either.

The new Note will support up to 1 terabyte of memory - it will have a 512 GB version that will support an additional 512 GB memory card - the source said, making Samsung the first major smartphone maker to sell a 1TB phone.

At some point, Samsung will no longer promote the Note 9 and Tab 4 so heavily, as it will move onto its next flagships.

Fortnite Android beta is launching this week with Samsung Galaxy owners getting an invite to download the APK from today. In the U.S., pricing is $999.99 for 128GB and $1,249.99 for 512GB.

An industry source said the new Note would be priced similarly to its predecessor Note 8, which sold at around $950.

The camera inside the Note 9 hops on board the computational-photography-and-AI train with two bundles of smarts. The offer is available from all carriers offering the Note 9.

The stylus, which connects to the phone withBluetooth, now acts as a remote control. The device has a "water carbon cooling system", which spreads and ultimately dissipates heat from the chipset using carbon fiber to, ideally, prevent overheating. Though they rarely agree on much, most Samsung users and iPhone users can agree that smartphone batteries need work. The Note 7 will be available in only blue and purple in the United States. Buyers in other regions will also get black and copper finishes.

Designed so you want to wear it all day. The Galaxy Note 9 will retail at $999.999 while the 512GB variant will set you back by $1,2499.99.

Although the Note 9 comes with several new features, it's far from a gamechanger, according to Werner Goertz, a research director at Gartner who covers personal devices. "Everything is a little bit better, but nothing's revolutionary". "The Note announcements have always been a more significant step in technology evolution compared with [this device]". But while earth-shattering new features are in short supply, it will carry an earth-shattering price tag: US$1,000.
