Samsung launches Fortnite for Android exclusive

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is due to be officially unveiled in NY today at 4pm BST (11am EDT). It looks similar to last year's 6.1-inch Note 8 but sports a revamped Bluetooth stylus - a longtime selling point of the Note series - as well as an upgraded camera that takes sharper photos than the S9 released earlier this year, Samsung said Thursday.

What won't be a surprise, because it just leaked again, is the new S Pen. An S Pen Remote section in the Note 9's Settings will let you customize the click feature in different apps. Bixby is created to get to know you.

"[The Note 9] will stand out in a sea of black phones out there", said Suzanne De Silva, Samsung director of product strategy and marketing, ahead of the launch.

The camera uses artificial intelligence to identify up to 20 types of scenes, including landscapes, food, flowers and people. The former is also available in 46mm which is the only size that the Gear S3 was offered in. The phone also has Samsung's water cooling solution to help dissipate heat from the processor over extended periods to prevent performance drops associated with overheating.

First, know that Samsung is offering a couple of perks for those who pre-order a Note 9 by August 23 - either a free pair of AKG noise-canceling headphones or a Fortnite Galaxy Skin with 15,000 V-bucks (the in-game currency). During the event, several features of the phone were discussed and announced. Samsung is offering the device in two color options, which are Ocean Blue and Lavender Purple.
