Samsung Galaxy Note 9 gives power users more of everything

Epic’s changing Fortnite matchmaking to save console players from keyboard and mouse

The device, which hits stores on August 24 and is available for pre-order starting Friday, offers the same look and feel of other Note devices, but the screen is slightly bigger than its predecessor at 6.4 inches.

The camera uses artificial intelligence to identify up to 20 types of scenes, including landscapes, food, flowers and people.

In another tweak, the S-Pen supports Bluetooth LE mode for certain functions, as a remote controller for presentations or selfies. Eventually, Samsung will discontinue the Note 9 and Tab 4 altogether, meaning that if the deal were to continue there would be no way of getting the Fortnite skin at all.

Fortnite Mobile will be exclusively on the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 for the first 30 days after launch.

Pre-orders for the smartphone will kick off tomorrow on 10 August, with the 6GB/128GB model costing £899, and the 8GB /512GB storage model priced at £1,099.

No one reported any problems with the Note 8, and analysts don't foresee problems with the Note 9. The world-facing camera has a dual-sensor system with optical image stabilization on both snappers.

North Korea returns the remains of U.S. war dead
Repatriation of the United States soldiers' remains was one of the steps agreed by Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un in Singapore. In 1990, for example, North Korea agreed to turn over a set of five remains, along with clothing and identification tags.

Samsung has said the Bluetooth only version of the watch is available to buy in the United Kingdom from now, but we have yet to find any retailers offering the watch and we don't currently know the price.

Samsung announced the Galaxy Note 9 smartphone on Thursday during an event in Brooklyn, New York. The Fortnite Installer download was around 4MB and tapping it left us with 1.88GB download size for the Fortnite Android beta itself.

The Note 9 is also one of the first phones to have a 512GB option. Samsung and Epic Games made it official today during the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. If Epic were to just open the floodgates to every potential mobile player, it'd be too much to handle. The new S Pen has a low power Bluetooth module which charges instantly each time you stow it into the phone. 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. The Copper color option might not be available to United States markets.

Of course, the Galaxy Watch also focuses on fitness just like all of Samsung's other watches.

The company didn't immediately give a release date or prices for the Galaxy Watch, but we know it'll be available in three colors: Silver, Midnight Black and Rose Gold. It's not clear when the speaker will be available for purchase, but Samsung is expected to reveal more details at its developer conference in November.
