Fortnite Beta for Android coming this week

Fortnite Beta for Android coming this week

It's still largely similar to the Note 8's S Pen, and it works just as well too.

The beta of Fortnite on Android will be available on the Samsung Galaxy S7 and above from today, August 9. It can interact with a phone from up to 30 feet away, and lets you pause music, snap a selfie or change slides on a PowerPoint presentation by pressing its button.

Anyone who places a preorder for a Galaxy Note 9 between August 10, 2018 and August 23, 2018 can choose between a bonus gift of a pair of AKG noise-cancelling headphones ($299 retail value) or the Fortnite Galaxy skin along with 15,000 V-bucks ($150 retail value), for free-or get both for just $99 ($449 retail value).

Are you planning to get a Note 9?

Other carryovers from the Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ is the chipset - Exynos 9810 Octa - and the inclusion of stereo speakers (finally).

Samsung has updated the DeX on the Galaxy Note9.




Not every use case of the new S Pen is going to apply to every Note 9 owner's life, but even in the limited time I spent with the phone, I began to see how I would make use of the built-in accessory if I were to switch phones.

Samsung is about to launch its highly-anticipated Galaxy Note 9, the latest phone in its premium smartphone range.

As rumoured, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 packs a Quad HD+ (1440x2960 pixels) Super AMOLED Infinity Display with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio and a pixel density of 516 pixels per inch. Sporting the same 12MP + 12MP dual-camera system found on the Galaxy S9+ - complete with the much touted variable aperture lens - the Note 9 is a very capable shooter. The company also introduced a brand new "Scene Optimized Mode" which delivers a superior result by analyi=zing 20 different scenes. Not all color options may be available in other regions, either, and we will only get to know as and when Samsung divulges pricing and release information for each country.

While the familiar design might not turn many heads, the performance of the Note 9 remains top-of-the-line. We'd expect carriers to offer payment plans for those who want the maximum storage and upgraded memory, but don't want to spend the whole amount in one fell swoop.

If you decide to preorder the Note 9, you'll be able to take advantage of a special offer from Samsung. For the time being, this is without a doubt the best Note device yet, and I can't wait to put the Note 9 through its paces in a full review.
