It’s official: Samsung Galaxy Note 9 to launch on August 9

It’s confirmed!

It turns out the rumors were true: Samsung is, in fact, launching the Galaxy Note 9 on August 9 during its Unpacked event.

While the invitation to the event doesn’t explicitly say that a Galaxy Note will be unveiled and that it’ll have the number nine attached to it, the appearance of an S Pen throughout the teaser video indicates the release of the stylus equivalent of the Galaxy S9.


You can watch the full video here:

That’s a lot of gold! (Or yellow depending on how you look at it.) Beyond the S Pen and the possibility of a gold or yellow color option, not much else is known about the next Galaxy Note.

What we can say for certain is that it’ll have improved specs and features over the Galaxy S9 rolled out earlier this year. Although, since Qualcomm hasn’t released a processor more powerful than the Snapdragon 845 this year, chances are the new Note will utilize that plus another variant with an in-house Exynos chipset.

The more pressing questions are if Samsung will implement an in-display fingerprint scanner this time around and add more cameras to the body — or perhaps even a pop-up module.

With a little over a month to go before the launch, we’re certain to see lots of leaks along the way. Chances are we’ll know exactly how it’s going to look in a couple weeks’ time.

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’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:
