Bixby learns new languages but only on the Galaxy Note 9

When Samsung announced its own take on the AI-powered smart assistant, there were naturally some doubts as to Samsung’s ability to carry through its vision. The botched launch of Bixby and other criticisms made it even less certain that the company will be able to deliver what it promised. One of those is support for languages other than Korean, Chinese, and English. The good news: that’s partially being delivered. The bad news: it’s only available for a very select few.

Galaxy Note 9 One UI beta starts for some unlocked US owners

Galaxy Note 9 One UI beta starts for some unlocked US owners

Samsung’s One UI is arguably one of the company’s most anticipated updates and not all for good reasons. In addition to bringing Android 9 Pie to the table, it’s also adding a rather controversial theme and a few controversial changes to the mix. All the more reason for both fans and curious onlookers to be excited to get into the beta program if they don’t have the stomach for manually flashing firmware on their own. Good news if you own an unlocked Galaxy Note 9 in the US because word on the street is that Samsung has silently started its beta program for its most expensive smartphone yet.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 debuts in white for the holidays, but not in the US

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 debuts in white for the holidays, but not in the US

Up until a few years ago, an all-white color option was commonplace on just about every flagship smartphone. But that's no longer the case; Apple's devices have replaced white with silver, while other manufacturers moved on to different shades of the color spectrum altogether. It seems enough time has passed, however, for white to be considered a fresh new color option, as that's what Samsung is going with for the Galaxy Note 9.

Galaxy Note 9 in White is coming to welcome winter

This year’s Samsung flagships have really taken colors to heart. The Galaxy S9, S9+, and Galaxy Note 9 have gone beyond the usual drab hues and embraced purples and blues and browns. That said, some do actually prefer their phones to be less conspicuous in terms of appearance but also find black or gray to be too dull. If the rumors are true, then they might have a white holiday treat coming for them with a white Galaxy Note 9 landing this week, at least in Taiwan.

Galaxy Note 9 Samsung DeX Review: Limited freedom

Galaxy Note 9 Samsung DeX Review: Limited freedom

By now, Samsung DeX is almost two years old. For a very niche feature that comes from a company that has a tendency to abandon niche features, that’s quite that’s quite an achievement. But Samsung is hardly the only one in this phone-as-a-desktop department and it was actually behind in some aspects. With Samsung DeX on the Galaxy Note 9 as well as the Galaxy Tab S4, Samsung has finally stepped up to the challenge. But how much did it improve and has it improved enough to be something users will actually buy Galaxy Notes and Galaxy S phones for? We take it for a spin to find out.
