Samsung Galaxy Note 9 launch live

Epic’s changing Fortnite matchmaking to save console players from keyboard and mouse

The third and final change that Samsung highlighted in our hands-on meeting was the "intelligent camera", which are near-identical dual 12-megapixel lenses with dual OIS to that of the Note 8, but with added software enhancements to ensure that every photo you take looks like it has already been professionally edited. It's still largely similar to the Note 8's S Pen, and it works just as well too.

At the battery end of things, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 features a 4000mAh power pack.

The Galaxy Note 9 brings a lot to the table compared to even the Galaxy Note 8, but Samsung has chose to go with a similar price tag for its new device.

Scene Optimizer, as Samsung calls it, is a feature that will automatically detect a scene or a subject and classify it into one of twenty categories, including food, flora, indoors, and more.

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

On Reddit, Epic addressed the issue, offering a statement that seemed to imply that, rather than shut out support for mouse on consoles, they plan to tweak matchmaking going forwards, so that players get matched with others sharing their control scheme.

Other carryovers from the Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ is the chipset - Exynos 9810 Octa - and the inclusion of stereo speakers (finally).

Premier League CEO reveals his dislike for Man City's dominance
Former Liverpool midfielder, Danny Murphy has predicted the Premier League clubs that will finish in the top-four this season. Alexis Sanchez sees Manchester United's Premier League opener against Leicester on Friday as a "must-win" game.

Last year, the Galaxy Note 8 started at $930 and smashed through the psychological barrier of $1,000 in its top configuration.

Samsung will release an SDK to open the new S Pen to developers.

Samsung is about to launch its highly-anticipated Galaxy Note 9, the latest phone in its premium smartphone range.

Sporting a "water carbon cooling system", the Note 9 supposedly has three times bigger thermal spreader than a conventional smartphone.

As per various reports, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is said to come with a 6.4-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED display. The company also introduced a brand new "Scene Optimized Mode" which delivers a superior result by analyi=zing 20 different scenes.

Samsung usually rolls out flagship phones in select markets first, but for now, we don't know which markets (other than the U.S.) will be included in the first wave. It'll be interesting to see just how much better the Note 9's camera is once we have the device in for review. We'd expect carriers to offer payment plans for those who want the maximum storage and upgraded memory, but don't want to spend the whole amount in one fell swoop.
