Epic is Looking Into Fortnite Matchmaking Based on Controller Choice

Announced at an event in NY on Thursday, the Note 9 resembles last year's Note 8, replete with glass front and back, curved edges and slide-out S Pen stylus.

As you can see it's pretty similar to the watch we first saw in a premature listing on Samsung's own website last month.

Sporting a "water carbon cooling system", the Note 9 supposedly has three times bigger thermal spreader than a conventional smartphone.

According to an ad on SinChew's e-paper for 10 August, the Galaxy Note9 is priced from RM3,699 for the base model with 128GB storage.

However, Samsung did add one new feature to the Note 9's camera: Scene Optimiser. At the back, there's a horizontal rear camera setup with the fingerprint sensor placed under it.

And then we have the signature, all-new S Pen with Bluetooth support. By default, pressing and holding the button opens the camera, and from there, a single tap takes a picture, while a double tap flips it into selfie mode.

On the Galaxy Note 9, you will likely get some additional benefits to make the most of Fortnite: tweaking in the Samsung Game Tuner was made to increase the performance of the game, so it runs extra smooth. A supercapacitor now powers the S Pen, and the accessory can reach full charge in 40 seconds after being inserted back into the phone. The top and bottom bezels on the device are also slightly thinner than its predecessor Samsung's also refined the phone's design with a special "diamond cutting" technique for seamless form. At the other, it's also catering towards the need of business users by upgrading the phablet's S-Pen.

In the run-up to the launch event, we have come across a number of leaks and rumors surrounding the Galaxy Note 9.

Fortnite is sure to become popular on Android as it is on every other platform, but this Note 9 deal from Samsung is sure to be a compelling offer for anyone looking to stand out from the herd. Plus, Note 9 and Tab S4 owners will get an exclusive skin. For the first time, both storage variants will be available on all four major carriers in the United States, in both blue and purple colors.

Buyers who pre-order will get a decent bonus in the form of a pair of AKG headphones or an in-game Fortnite currency pack.
