Fortnite Is Finally on Android - If You Have a Samsung Phone”

On Thursday morning, Samsung took to the stage at the Barclays Center in New York City to officially announce the Galaxy Note 9.

The Galaxy Watch, revealed at the company's worldwide event in Brooklyn overnight, will be the first Samsung smartwatch with its own mobile internet connection, and the first wearable technology in Australia that will connect to mobile networks overseas, allowing Aussie travellers to access maps and stay in contact while on holidays.

Read on to find out everything you need to know about the brand new Samsung Galaxy Home.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 specs: A noteworthy leap in performance? Entry level price is $999 (6GB RAM / 128GB storage) rising to $1,250 for the model with 8GB RAM and 512GB of storage.

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. For the true mobile media warrior, a 512GB model (which costs an insane $1250) can be paired with an upcoming 512GB Samsung microSD card to bring the phone to a full terabyte of internal storage. The super capacitor inside the S-pen gives the device a 30 minute battery life with only a 40 second charge.

Following Samsung Unpacked, Android users on a collection of different devices will be able to sign-up for the Fortnite Beta, however, prospective players will be added to a waiting list. Granted, most carriers and retailers are running promotions for the Note 9, but not a single one directly impacts the starting price of the device.

In terms of network support and retailers, in the USA the LTE version of the Galaxy Watch, which is set to cost more than the base model, is being sold via AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, and the official Samsung online store.

The S Pen is always an important aspect of the Note series and invariably gets more features in each iteration.

Under standard usage, such as LT, Bluetooth, messaging and some music streaming the battery can last up to 80 hours, which eliminates the need for daily charging. The one you see in the image above is the 42mm one, as it also comes in a black 46mm variant for those that have massive wrists. "My worry is that the Note 9 may meet the same fate".

It really depends on how much you value Samsung's optimization on whether you think this is a worthwhile purchase - there are many phones from China especially that offer similar specs, and for far less cash.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 wallpapers are abstract and colorful, with a square ratio and a resolution of 2,560 x 2,560.
