Samsung launches Fortnite for Android exclusive

So there is hope for playing the world's biggest game on any Android phone right now, but you'll have to go elsewhere to learn that information. And yes, it's still a nasty fingerprint magnet.

The S Pen is always an important aspect of the Note series and invariably gets more features in each iteration. Tap the button twice and the Note9 shifts from the front- to the rear-facing camera. A dual-lens camera, with better zooming, came to the Note 8 months before the S9 Plus got it, for instance.

Has Samsung hit a home run with the Galaxy Note 9?

American Note 9 buyers will find a Snapdragon 845 SoC inside, running at up to 2.8 GHz on its performance cores and up to 1.7 GHz on its efficiency cores.

What won't be a surprise, because it just leaked again, is the new S Pen.

Announced at an event in NY on Thursday, the Note 9 resembles last year's Note 8, replete with glass front and back, curved edges and slide-out S Pen stylus. According to Anandtech's live blog, Samsung's Bixby assistant is now "more conversational, personal, and useful", and it has more powerful and context-aware queries on the Note 9.

To refresh your memory, Samsung DeX was initially introduced as an optional accessory where you can get a desktop-like PC experience when you dock your phone.

An alternative read of the situation though is that it could just spring up at any time.

The other issue is that it now only works on selected Samsung devices, although compatibility with a wider selection is promised for "the coming days". If you need to plug in your physical keyboard or a thumb drive, you can get their multi-port dongle that has additional LAN and USB ports.

However, Amazon's Alexa software has a wider range of skills on offer that enable it to link up with and control more third-party devices around the home.

At today's Unpacked presentation the various presenters highlighted three qualities of the Samsung Galaxy Note9 which have been implemented after customer feedback.

As for storage, there have been reports about a 512GB variant of the device.

While the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 isn't as exciting as the Note 8, it's still a very, very refined and capable flagship smartphone. The device has a "water carbon cooling system", which spreads and ultimately dissipates heat from the chipset using carbon fiber to, ideally, prevent overheating.

Samsung makes some of the best displays in the market, so it's really expected for the Note 9 to have such a great-looking screen. This allows you to switch between f/2.4 for outdoor environments to a faster f/1.5 in low light scenes.
