Samsung finally unveils its much-anticipated Galaxy Watch

Samsung finally unveils its much-anticipated Galaxy Watch

The skin is part of Epic Games' partnership with Samsung meaning that the only way to get it is to play the game on either the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 smartphone or the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 tablet.

To refresh your memory, Samsung DeX was initially introduced as an optional accessory where you can get a desktop-like PC experience when you dock your phone. Samsung has been conservative on battery improvements ever since its Note 7 phone in 2016 developed a tendency to burst into flame, prompting an expensive recall and delivering a hit to the company's reputation.

On Thursday morning, XDA Developers shared a comprehensive list of the phones that will support the Fortnite beta at launch, and if you're not on a relatively recent flagship phone, you might be out of luck.

No one reported any problems with the Note 8, and analysts don't foresee problems with the Note 9.

It will come as a surprise to absolutely no one that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is now official following the company's Unpacked event. It will let users remotely control the Note 9's camera and switch between slides in a presentation, the company said.

The Galaxy Watch works on its own, with LTE connectivity that works in 15-plus countries across 30-plus carriers' networks. Instead of the Note 8's odd placement, the Note 9's fingerprint scanner is now positioned mercifully below the camera module. The Fortnite Installer download was around 4MB and tapping it left us with 1.88GB download size for the Fortnite Android beta itself.

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. Samsung will also make the device available from Amazon, Best Buy, Costco, Sam's Club, Straight Talk Wireless, Target and Walmart, as well as Samsung.com and the ShopSamsung app. Outside the U.S., it'll come in black and copper.

Designed so you want to wear it all day.

"[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.

Although the Note 9 comes with several new features, it's far from a gamechanger, according to Werner Goertz, a research director at Gartner who covers personal devices.

The 6.4-inch screen Note 9 will start at $999.99 and max out at $1,249.99 - becoming, at about $100 above the iPhone X's upper limit, one of the world's most expensive consumer phones.

Finally, we have the Galaxy Note 9's camera performance. "Everything is a little bit better, but nothing's revolutionary".
