Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome to the stage, president and CEO, head of IT and mobile communications division, DJ Koh. [APPLAUSE] Hello everyone. And I'm excited to show you the next version of the world's, Most powerful mobile device. Not just any smartphone, a smartphone powerful enough to keep up with you wherever you are, whatever you are doing, whatever you need. Ladies and gentlemen, it is my great pleasure to present the all new Galaxy Note 9. [APPLAUSE] [MUSIC] [APPLAUSE] [MUSIC] You shouldn't have to plan your day around your phone's battery life. That's why we created an all day battery, the largest ever on a Note. No more worrying that your GPS will die right when you need it most. No more begging coworkers to borrow a charger. Instead, you can power through your entire day with just the phone in your pocket. [APPLAUSE] That's right. Fact is we need our phones to last all day. We're storing more on them then ever before. So Note 9 starts at a minimum of 128 gigabytes. That's twice as much space as before. So you don't have to pick and choose which photos, videos, and apps you can live without. With that amount storage, you can download close to 670 hours of movies and TV shows. That's enough to get you through 30 round trip flights from New York to Madrid. And that's just to start with. You can also get a 512G version. [APPLAUSE] That's the one that I want. Just like its predecessors, Nuke 9 also comes with expandable storage. And get this. Soon, with Samsung's upcoming 512GB micro SD card, you'll be able to get as much as 1TB of memory. [APPLAUSE] 1TB, that's more than most laptops. But the ultimate test of all this power and speed is gaming. To get a truly great gaming experience on a smartphone, you need a device that packs a serious punch. Don't take it from me, let's hear from someone who created one of the most popular games on the market today. Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the founder and CEO of Epic Games, Tim Sweeney. [APPLAUSE] Epic Games launched our most successful game yet, Fortnite. [APPLAUSE] So today is there over 125 million people around the world holding bases, gathering weapons, and getting ready for the next storm. And then, judging by the tweets, just about every gamer wants to know the same thing. When is Fortnite coming to Android? So about that, we're going to be launching the Fortnite beta on Android this week. And players with Samsung galaxy devices are the first to be invited starting right now. [APPLAUSE] Thanks. Also gamers who play Fortnite on a Note 9 or Tab S4 will also get access to a special skin. Galaxy. [APPLAUSE] Yeah, what really excites us about this partnership is that Samsung makes the best-performing Android devices in the world. And the Note 9 represents a real revolution for mobile gaming that brings a console-quality, 100 player Fortnite experience to Android [UNKNOWN] has always been on the cutting edge of mobile gaming, and together with Samsung, we're ushering mobile gaming into a new era of high end games for gamers. And we can't wait to see how players around the world enjoy it. Thank you very much. [APPLAUSE] With Note 9, whatever you're doing, your phone works for you. Giving you the performance that you need. And nowhere is that more true than with the Note's powerful, intelligent camera. Back in February, we reimagined what a camera could do with an incredible dual aperture smart phone camera. Because when it comes to capturing a great photo, there's almost nothing more important than light. Just like your eye. Note 9's camera adapts to your environment. If you're out at night the aperture widens to let in more light. And if it's a bright sunny day the aperture contracts to let in less light. So we started with one of the most powerful smart phone cameras in the world. And now we're building on that foundation with Note 9's brand new intelligent camera. Some things are always gonna be out of our control. Maybe your friend blinked, maybe you didn't see the smudge on the lens untill it was too late. Seriously, there's nothing worse than asking someone to take a photo of you and your friends, Only to get your phone back and realize that the photo looks terrible. Well now, whenever Note 9's camera detects a flaw, like closed eyes or image blur, it will automatically notify you so you can take another shot before the moment's gone. Note 9's camera also uses scene recognition, To identify different subjects like flowers,food, a variety of landscapes and then based on the scene, it optimizes the color tones So that every shot you take is Instagram ready. What if you could take a better photo, without all that hassle? Here, let me show you what I'm talking about. Make my way over to the camera, and, okay now this is just too cool of a moment, I don't think I wanna take this one alone. Matt, you wanna join me? All right, here we go. Let's get in here, all right, one, two, three. I need my good side, let's try this way. All right, ready? [INAUDIBLE] One, two, three and your album cover? Okay One, two, three. All right, looking good. Let's see. Perfect. Yeah. There we go. You might have noticed. That I took those photos without even touching the phone. I used this. [APPLAUSE] To tell you all about Note 9's powerful new S Pen, please welcome my good friend, and Tab S4 video sensation, John Long. The new S pen has some pretty cool new functions. That's because now it supports Bluetooth low energy to turn it into the ultimate remote control. [APPLAUSE] Yeah. You can use it to play and pause YouTube videos. So I don't smudge the screen with my greasy pizza hands. Capture snaps in snapchat. Take your selfie game to the next level. Or flick through some slides in Microsoft Powerpoint while working the room. Speaking of working the room. You can even use it to control something much, much bigger. In fact, I've been controlling this presentation with my S pen. [APPLAUSE] I know, pretty cool, aye. Check it out. I can go backwards. [BLANK_AUDIO] I can go forward, all with the simple click of the S Pen. [APPLAUSE] And that's not all. Right now we're working with a handful of partners. Soon we'll open up the SCK to everyone. So that you all can come up with your own creative ways of using the S-Pen. [APPLAUSE] These days, your phone is basically like a super computer that fits in your pocket. So why not extend that computing power to a bigger screen? Samsung DeX is a PC like experience, power entirely, By your Galaxy smart phone. With DeX built into the Note 9, all the computing power I need is in my pocket. DeX is designed for the work anywhere generation, and now it's simpler and more convenient than ever, because the only thing you need to start DeX Is this. That's right. [APPLAUSE] All you need is a single HDMI adapter, just like the one you'd use to connect your phone to a TV. Let me show you. [BLANK_AUDIO] [MUSIC] All I need to do to connect Is this. [MUSIC] It's as simple as that. I just plug in my Note 9 and I'm in DeX. Pretty cool. [APPLAUSE] It's all powered by my Note 9. And DeX doesn't just work with your phone (hip-hop music playing in background) You can also use it with the device we just saw, the Tab S4. Turn it into a true productivity machine. Combined with the S pen, it gives you an even larger canvas for your notes, or your doodles. Today, for the first time, we are unveiling a brand new product That brings together big TV, amazing sound and elegant design. Are you ready? [APPLAUSE] Listen. [APPLAUSE] [BLANK_AUDIO] [SOUND] Hi, Bixby. [MUSIC] [SOUND] Play music. [MUSIC] [MUSIC] [MUSIC] [MUSIC] [MUSIC] [APPLAUSE] All the sound you just heard came from these 160 Galaxy Home. [APPLAUSE] So when we design this speaker we set out to deliver high quality sound. Thankfully with the AKG every aspect of coliseum is engineered to make your music sound amazing. It is an elegant, circular form vector with a six meter high range speakers that send the sound in every direction. And it has a subwoofer that provides deep reach space as well. And with Harman's natural sound processing. You'll get a realistic surround sound experience, that feels like you are right in the middle of a live concert. We've also integrated common sound technologies. Which detects your location and optimize sound based on where you are in the room. Just say, hi, Bixby, [UNKNOWN], and the music is directed right at you. [BLANK_AUDIO] As I mentioned before, the Galaxy Home also has Bixby, and the Smart Things Hub built right in, so it gives you instant access to their largest openly consistent of smart devices. Using only your voice. So it is as easy saying, hi, Bixby. But Galaxy Home also has eight microphones for far-field voice recognition. They'll pick up that voice command from clear across the room. This is [UNKNOWN] first look at this amazing speaker. We are excited to share more details about it soon. [APPLAUSE] So Galaxy Home is, Perfect example of how we are expanding our ecosystem of intelligent devices. We are also expanding services, as I showed you earlier. These expansions are only possible with a scalable AI platform, which is BeSpeak. And we will be sharing a lot more about our vision and the detailed technology behind it at the Samsung Developer Conference. I really, really hope to see you all there. [BLANK_AUDIO]
