Samsung Officially Launches the Galaxy Note 9

Samsung Officially Launches the Galaxy Note 9

The Note 9 camera uses AI to identify what's in the shot and adjust the lighting and colors accordingly.

As for software, it's typical Samsung: the Note9 ships with Oreo, and Samsung isn't making any promises as to when it will get Android 9 Pie. And for the gamers out there, the Note 9 has a water carbon cooling system with a thermal spreader three times larger than that of the Note 8, which should allow for better cooling performance and smoother gaming sessions.

The new phone gets an internal storage upgrade, too.

The fingerprint scanner is now in the middle of the back behind the device, further from the camera lens.

With the addition of a super capacitor, it can now run for 30 minutes when charged for just 40 seconds (by sliding it back into the phone). Additionally, users will also have an option to expand the Note 9's storage by 512GB through the addition of a microSD card.

When you remove the S Pen from the Note 9, you'll notice a small button right in the middle of the pen.

"[The Note 9] will stand out in a sea of black phones out there", said Suzanne De Silva, Samsung director of product strategy and marketing, ahead of the launch.

At a mega event in Brooklyn, New York on Thursday, Samsung officially unveiled the Galaxy Note 9 with a bigger battery and an improved S Pen stylus that packs a few new tricks.

At the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 event, Epic Games took the stage to announce that Fortnite is now available on Android. It will be available from the Game Launcher app.

Naturally, a big Fortnite Mobile reveal during the Note 9 launch is still to be expected, however, thanks to this leaked footage it now appears that the timed exclusive could very well be for all Samsung Galaxy devices, or at least the most recent ones, with phones like the Galaxy S9 and Note 8, as well as Galaxy Tab S3 tablet potentially also getting in on the Fortnite Mobile action. The range topper is a Galaxy Note9 with 512GB of storage and 8GB of RAM. Two other colors - Metallic Copper and Midnight Black - will be available internationally, and if Samsung's previous strategy holds up, will likely follow on to the U.S. in the coming months.

Pre-orders for the Note 9 kick off tomorrow, at 12:01 am EDT on August 10, 2018. The company is offering anyone who preorders the phone between August 10th and August 23rd either a pair of AKG headphones (normally $299) or 15,000 V-Bucks in Fortnite (normally $150) for free.
