‘Fortnite’ for Android Is Now Available for Samsung Galaxy Users

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

However, a Galaxy Note 9 with Samsung DeX isn't going to replace your laptop or desktop for work or for hardcore gaming.

Samsung has nabbed the exclusive Android release of popular survival game Fortnite as part of the launch for its Note 9 phablet, which the company is marketing as a premium phone for gamers. Along with the usual yearly upgrades, the Note 9 features a much bigger battery along with a 512 GB storage tier and a high starting price. However, that's not necessarily a bad thing. Fortnite for Android will be available on other devices in the next few days. Samsung is offering the device in two color options, which are Ocean Blue and Lavender Purple.

The device comes in a fantastic high-end variant that features 8GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage.

For those folks as well as the PC gamers, the Note 9 could become a companion device in this situation. But a 4,000mAh cell is larger than most and brings to mind the Note 7 debacle of 2016 when the batteries in that phone started exploding. I personally quite like this, but I'm sure some consumers won't be too thrilled about this. After all, Samsung claims an all-day battery life with the Note 9.

We're actually working on some matchmaking tech, on the way, that'll pair you against folks based on your choice of peripherals.

But, earlier this week, Mr Mattis said he is in "complete alignment" with Mr Trump's concerns about United States space assets. Let's hope that's the branch's new motto because it's pretty much flawless . "Peace only comes through strength", Pence said.

Five people killed when small plane crashes in California parking lot
The plane was about one mile from its destination, John Wayne Airport, before the crash. The car's owner was fortunately inside the mall shopping when their auto was hit.

Unlike the Note8 where the camera module is black for all colours, the Note9's dual-camera module now comes in body-matching colours. Of course, the size of the display may depend on the size of the notch needed to run Face ID, and rumors are suggesting that Google's (GOOG) (GOOGL) Pixel 3 smartphone to be launched this fall will have a huge notch as well.

Specifically using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), the S-Pen can now be used as a mini remote for the phone to trigger selfies or group shots if you place it out of reach, switch slides in a presentation or pause video.

Why did Samsung bother to mention the number of clicks? You can control the camera with a press of the S Pen button, and there will be an SDK for developers to tie into the button in order to add new functionality.

Unfortuantely, if you're not using a brand new Samsung device, you won't get the Galaxy skin. Samsung will also make the device available from Amazon, Best Buy, Costco, Sam's Club, Straight Talk Wireless, Target and Walmart, as well as Samsung.com and the ShopSamsung app.

The world's largest smartphone manufacturer unveiled on Thursday the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 - an updated, but not exactly revolutionary, addition to its smartphone lineup. The company says the handset has a "Water Carbon Cooling" system and "AI-based performance adjusting algorithm [s]" to deliver maximum sustained performance. We can't wait to give the new camera software a spin. The camera is fast and responsive, images look great, and it feels very similar to the S9+'s shooting experience. In our short usage, the "scene" icon is barely noticeable, and the recognition doesn't feel as quick as Huawei's P20.
