Fortnite on Android could be a Samsung exclusive launching this week

"A method which checks the device's brand, code-name, and feature-set and matches it against either the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 or Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 prevents these other Samsung devices from playing the game, it seems". We're expecting a 4000mAh battery inside of the Galaxy Note 9, up from the smaller 3300mAh battery which should provide the "powerful all-day battery" that Samsung is teasing. Lastly, the method checks for the existence of the S Pen.

So far, all rumors agree that is when Samsung will bring the spiritual successor to its popular Gear S3 smartwatch: the new Galaxy Watch.

The Note 9 box also lists stereo speakers, wireless charging, Samsung Pay, an iris scanner, and IP68 certification, meaning the phone would be dust-proof and water-resistant to depths of 1.5 meters for up to 30 minutes.

Why the RBS share price could be a bargain after dividend news
RBS CEO Ross McEwan said the bank was pleased with its progress, even in an uncertain and highly competitive environment. RBS reported an operating profit before tax of £1.8bn for the first half of this year, down from £1.95bn a year earlier.

This will all become official when Samsung officially unveils the Galaxy Note 9 on August 9 in an "Unpacked" event to be held in New York City.

For now, we'll have to wait a few days and see if Samsung has bagged the game as a launch title for its new phone. Both should be round smartwatches running on Samsung's Tizen platform, featuring the signature rotating bezel feature and adding support for more features among which support for up to 40 different workouts (the Gear S3 supported around 10 types of exercise). While the Note 9 will be announced on the 9th August, the Watch is expected to be launched at IFA on the 30th August. "This suggests that, at least for supported Samsung devices, the app will be available through Samsung Galaxy Apps", the site claims.
