Samsung's international Galaxy Note9 drops to $770 on eBay ($230 off)

If you've been eyeing a Galaxy Note9, then you might be interested in this deal.

Keep in mind that this is the international variant (SM-N960F/DS), so it won't necessarily be a stellar experience here in the U.S.

[Update: Orders open] Samsung Galaxy Note9 to soon be available in Midnight Black and Cloud Silver in the US

Oddly, Samsung released the Galaxy Note9 in the US with only two colors, neither of which can be considered conventional: Ocean Blue and Lavender Purple.

Samsung reveals new LTE-equipped Chromebook Plus V2

Earlier this year, Samsung revealed a refresh of its well-regarded 2017 Chromebook Plus. The new Chromebook Plus (V2) had an unadventurous name, but it had most of what made the original great, sadly sacrificing its incredible display for a faster Y-series Celeron (read: not one of the bad ones).

Samsung's new gesture navigation solution actually looks quite promising

Gesture navigation is considered by some to be an important innovation in smartphone UX, not least because it removes the nav bar and allows for more content on the display. It's not easy to get it right, but Apple has done a pretty good job of it and Android OEMs like OnePlus have also had a good go (let's not waste our time discussing Google's Pixel abomination). Samsung's recently announced Galaxy A7 offers another new take on gesture nav, and it actually seems pretty good.
