Fortnite Beta on Android exclusive to Samsung Galaxy owners

Fortnite Beta on Android exclusive to Samsung Galaxy owners

Along with the Galaxy Note 9, Samsung is launching a new smartwatch and revealing a smart speaker at its Unpacked event today.

Detailed specifications about the product are unknown, however Samsung said it will be sharing more details at its developer conference in November.

Of course, the power user is going to want full keyboard and mouse support, and as mentioned Samsung DeX offers that over Bluetooth connection.

Its S Pen stylus is Bluetooth-enabled and created to act as a remote for controlling YouTube video playback.

The Galaxy Note 9 doesn't change much from the Note 8, but it brings the best of the current Galaxy S9 and pairs it with the S Pen. And you can download this right now if you follow this link.

"Now, we've also found strings and code that suggest the app will use Samsung's in-App Purchase SDK, contained within Samsung's app store called Samsung Galaxy Apps, to handle payments".

What's new is its AI Scene Optimiser which works like Huawei's Master AI feature on the Mate 10 and P20 series. Lovers of the game will get an exclusive Note 9 character skin or alternative appearance for characters.

Child becomes first Manitoban infected with West Nile Virus in 2018
Less than one percent of those infected develop serious illness of the nervous system like encephalitis or meningitis. Last year, Toronto Public Health did not record the first lab-confirmed case of West Nile virus until August 25.

The mostly matte metal frame also gets a diamond cut treatment, so you'll see a shiny metal finish at the surrounding area where the metal meets the glass.

Samsung first confirmed rumors of the speaker's upcoming release back at Mobile World Congress back in February, when CEO DJ Koh said they'd be releasing a device in the second half of 2018, CNET notes. If that's that not quite enough for you, there's even a variant with a whopping 512GB storage and 8GB of RAM. Apple's iPhones max out at 256GB with no microSD slot, but the Note 9 has the option to add another 512GB in this way, making it a phone that can have a whole terabyte of storage. We can, however, get a sense of the design similarities of the Samsung Gear Watch vs Gear S3 by comparing them side-by-side in pictures.

No one reported any problems with the Note 8, and analysts don't foresee problems with the Note 9.

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.

Not using a Samsung device?

There's also been an upgrade in the camera department.

Samsung also previewed a new voice-assisted speaker, the Galaxy Home, using its homegrown digital assistant, Bixby. It has improved battery life over previous Samsung watch models, and will be compatible with a new charger that can simultaneously charge smartphones and the watch. In the USA the Note 9 will come in Ocean Blue or Lavender Purple.
