Fortnite Beta on Android is Launching this Week

Marion JacobsAug 10, 2018

Fortnite has come to Android first via the Samsung, in beta form, as from today.

All-in-all on paper and from Raymond Wong's hands-on with the Note 9, it seems to be a solid device. It's not the worst thing in the world, but it's not the best either.

Samsung even boasted that it controlled its Note 9 presentation using the banana-a-like stylus, before announcing that it plans to open up the SDK to developers so functionality can be built into third-party apps.

The Galaxy Watch works on its own, with LTE connectivity that works in 15-plus countries across 30-plus carriers' networks.

Of course, there are a few exceptions here. 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. Entry level price is $999 (6GB RAM / 128GB storage) rising to $1,250 for the model with 8GB RAM and 512GB of storage.

The Galaxy Note 9 runs on high-end specs, including the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor that turns the wheels inside most high-end smartphones in 2018. Additionally, base storage for the Note 9 now stands at 128GB and the phablet also ships with a 4,000mAh power pack. We'll keep you updated on the latest.

The new Note will support up to 1 terabyte of memory - it will have a 512 GB version that will support an additional 512 GB memory card - the source said, making Samsung the first major smartphone maker to sell a 1TB phone.

Design-wise, not much has changed, but there is one huge improvement on the back of the Note 9: the fingerprint sensor's positioning. Oh, and the Note 8 didn't get too hot either.

Mina and Gomes join former team-mate Lucas Digne at Goodison, following his move £20m move from Barcelona earlier in the window. Colombian centre-back Mina will join in a deal worth €30.25 million with another €1.5 in potential add-ons, Barcelona said.

"We're actually working on some matchmaking tech", an Epic rep says "that'll pair you against folks based on your choice of peripherals". T-Mo will begin taking pre-orders at 12:01 am ET on August 10th and will launch the Note 9 in stores on August 24th. The large, rectangular module does not look aesthetically pleasing at all, and the different sizes of the camera lenses don't have any symmetry either. I think this is because it is very good but an incremental upgrade.

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. By pressing the S Pen's button, you can turn on the camera, switch between the rear and selfie cameras, and take a photo.

Why did Samsung bother to mention the number of clicks? The speaker uses the "Hi Bixby" wake word and can direct sound at you depending on where you are in the room, just like the Apple HomePod.

These are just some usage scenarios Samsung highlighted with the new Bluetooth-enabled S Pen.

Samsung has released its own USB-C accessories for this objective, and DeX will also work with compatible third-party dongles. And, for a limited time you can also get a free Samsung Galaxy Note9, S9 or S9+ when you buy a Samsung Galaxy Note9.

That's what we know so far about the Galaxy Watch. This is the largest yet on a Samsung flagship and it's 700mAh more than the Galaxy Note8 and 500mAh more than the Galaxy S9+.

However, Samsung did add one new feature to the Note 9's camera: Scene Optimiser. The camera will also offer a warning if someone blinked in a shot, or if the image is blurry.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch was just announced at the latest Samsung Unpacked event in NY, but we don't now have an exact release date or a price.
