During the Note 9 event, Samsung announced owners of its smartphones would be among the first to get access to the Fortnite on Android beta.

The new Note phone is expected to be bigger, have more generous storage and tout improved camera performance in low light. The successor to Galaxy Note 8, the new phone comes with improved design, incremental specifications upgrade, and a revamped S Pen with Bluetooth control.

The Note 9 will come with larger battery and storage specs than any previous Note device, with the 4,000mAh battery enabling all-day use no matter how heavy, Samsung claims.

The minor improvements reflect a smartphone industry that has largely pushed the limits on hardware.

"Samsung has really doubled down on the productivity aspects of the Note range and has pulled out all the stops to make the Note 9 especially appealing to people who live and work on the go", he said.

Since then, Samsung has subjected its phones to multiple inspections, including X-rays and stress tests at extreme temperatures.

Preordering the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 gets you some special Fortnite bonuses to celebrate: you can get an astonishing 15,000 V-Bucks, or you can opt for a pair of AKG noise-cancelling headphones, for free with your preorder.

The current Note 8 maxes out at 256 GB.

Under the hood, both phones run on the same SoC, which is Samsung's current-gen flagship chipset, the Exynos 9810 on global variants, while the United States variant sports the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset.

Samsung has unveiled its latest Galaxy Note flagship smartphone, complete with the largest battery the firm has ever placed in the device. There's been speculation - unconfirmed by Apple - that all new iPhones will ditch the home button and fingerprint sensor and rely entirely on facial-recognition technology found in the iPhone X. The Note 9 will still have a fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone. The camera will also alert you to any imperfections in your shot, like if it's too blurry or if someone blinked at the wrong time.

Samsung also previewed a new voice-assisted speaker, the Galaxy Home, using its homegrown digital assistant, Bixby. The new smart speaker also supports Spotify music streaming service.
