Leaks for Samsung’s upcoming stylus-touting smartphone have been plenty thanks to multiple sources. Little did we expect, however, that Samsung itself would become one of those leakers.
Lo and behold, the Galaxy Note 9’s full promotional video was uploaded on one of Samsung’s official YouTube channels.
An admin caught on to the “mistake” and subsequently deleted the video, but not soon enough to prevent others from downloading and re-uploading it to their own channels.
Here’s one such re-upload:
There you have it. This is the Galaxy Note 9, which we’re supposed to officially see on August 9 in New York City.
Samsung is calling this the “new super powerful Note” with an “all new powerful S Pen.” That’s a lot of power in two lines.
On the other hand, what may be more impressive are the all-day battery life and 1 terabyte-ready storage, which align with earlier leaks.
The Galaxy Note 9 is indeed shaping up to become Samsung’s most capable smartphone ever, but just how well it competes against the likes of OnePlus and Huawei’s latest flagships, as well as the upcoming products of Apple and Google, is still up for debate.
With all this premature info and only a few days left before the official launch, we can only hope there’ll be a “one more thing” to surprise us.
Samsung Galaxy Note 9: YouTubers React
Is the Note line back to its glory?
Michael Fisher, Danny Winget, Joshua Vergara, Jaime Rivera of Pocketnow, David Imel and Lanh Nguyen of Android Authority, Ricky Vilcrez of GSM Arena, and Faisal Alsaif tell us what they think about the new Samsung Galaxy Note 9.
Aside from a reimagined S Pen, there are other new things about the Samsung Galaxy Note 9: a larger battery, top of the line internals, and some heft in the pocket — both literally and figuratively. But are these improvements compelling enough for Note users to upgrade? And for non-Note users out there, is now the time to switch?
Samsung Galaxy Note 9 live unboxing
Fresh and brand new!
Samsung’s newest flagship smartphone is finally here and we’re taking it out of the box just for you! In this Galaxy Note 9 live unboxing, we check out what’s inside the box and answer some of the questions of live viewers.
The Galaxy Note 9 looks a lot like its predecessor, the Galaxy Note 8, but it has some pretty nifty upgrades. The S Pen is now equipped with Bluetooth and functions as a remote so you can use it for presentations, taking remote selfies, cycling through your photos in your gallery, and more!
The camera is the same as the one on the Samsung Galaxy S9+ but with some software improvements. The Galaxy Note 9 has what Samsung is calling an intelligent camera which automatically detects scenes and adjusts settings so there’s little to no editing required on your end. Just post right away! There’s also flaw detection that tells you if you need to retake the photo. That’s pretty neat!

Fortnite arrives on Android as direct download on Samsung’s Game Launcher
Rumors about Fortnite and Galaxy Note 9 were partially false
While Epic Games made it clear that Fortnite isn’t coming to the Google Play Store — instead becoming a direct download from the developer’s official website — rumors brewed about the popular battle royale game becoming a timed exclusive to the newly released Galaxy Note 9.
As it turns out, it’s partially true. The following Galaxy phones will get first dibs on Android’s own Fortnite:
- Note 9
- Note 8
- Tab S4
- Tab S3
- S9 and S9+
- S8 and S8+
- S7 and S7 Edge
Samsung says these phones and tablets can download the game beginning today through the Game Launcher app. The company claims this exclusivity will last for the next few days only.
Although the game will come to more Android devices in waves, Galaxy Note 9 and Tab S4 users will get special access to — you guessed it — a Galaxy skin for their in-game character.
Here’s the official trailer to get you pumped up:
