But following in the footsteps of the Galaxy S9 earlier this year, the Galaxy Note 9 breaks with tradition and employs a series of ancillary changes rather than introducing any major design modifications. Note that Samsung says stocks are limited, so you may want to hurry.
Is the extra 384GB of storage and 2GB of RAM worth a 25 percent premium over the base version? The company also introduced a brand new "Scene Optimized Mode" which delivers a superior result by analyi=zing 20 different scenes. Instead of the Note 8's odd placement, the Note 9's fingerprint scanner is now positioned mercifully below the camera module. The S Pen now supports three imputs - short press, long press and double press. The Galaxy Note 9's front camera is able to capture images at an 8MPresolution, f/1.7 aperture width, and AutoFocus. But with essentially the same Android Oreo-based software and an industrial design language that does little to stand out from other Samsung smartphones, it's hard to see the Note9 having an especially strong appeal that previous Samsung phones haven't. A supercapacitor now powers the S Pen, and the accessory can reach full charge in 40 seconds after being inserted 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.
The video shows the incredibly popular Fortnite game running on a Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, which was hacked into working by xdadevelopers and some of their community members, who not only obtained the Fortnite Mobile Android APK but also bypassed lock downs to get it running. It's still largely similar to the Note 8's S Pen, and it works just as well too.
Ebola vaccinations in Congo due to begin on Wednesday
An additional 43 suspected cases of Ebola were reported, including 13 confirmed by lab testing, according to WHO. DRC authorities still have on hand thousands of doses of the Merck vaccine, Reuters reports .
At one end the company is targeting the device towards gaming users by launching Fortnite for Android with the Galaxy Note 9.
This is the first Bluetooth-enabled S Pen and it can act as a remote shutter for the camera. For the first time, both storage variants will be available on all four major carriers in the USA, in both blue and purple colors.
From August 9 to August 23, Samsung will take pre-orders and offer €100 for trading in an old smartphone. 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 USA in the coming months. Alternatively, you can get both the headphones and the V-bucks for paying $99 on top of the phone.
