Huawei set to leapfrog Samsung Galaxy X with world’s first foldable phone

Huawei set to leapfrog Samsung Galaxy X with world’s first foldable phone

In May, it was reported that the expectation was that Fortnite's battle royale mode would arrive on Android sometime in the summer, but no exact dates were pegged down. The Galaxy S9 wasn't the best-selling phone Samsung thought it would be, so the company is hoping that the Note 9 will do better than its predecessor. That's a big improvement over the Galaxy Note 8, which had a 3,300mAh battery. The sites confirm that both the the phone and tablet will have the ability to use the DeX desktop UI by simply connecting the devices to a display via their USB Type-C port and a DisplayPort-enabled adapter. On the front we've got a somewhat thick notch at the top that features two cameras and a front-speaker, as well as a bottom bezel that incorporates a second speaker.

After 30 days of availability, Epic is expected to make Fortnite available to everyone who has a smartphone powerful enough to run it. This may help Epic Games to land even more new players for the title and encourage them to spend real money, further bolstering Fortnite's $2 million a day in revenue.

As we near the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, leaks spew like black clouds out of factory chimneys. Indeed, it sounds as though Samsung's upcoming flagship smartphone will get exclusive access to the Fortnite Android app. These could include up to $150 worth of V-Bucks - the in-game currency - exclusive cosmetics, and more.

Hamilton gives up on German victory after qualifying catastrophe
Ricciardo, who had started at the back of the grid, climbed as high as sixth before engine failure on lap 29 ended his race. Mercedes confirmed on Friday that Valtteri Bottas will continue as teammate to Lewis Hamilton for at least another year.

So, when is Samsung dropping its big-ass phone? The event is due to take place in New York, August 9th.

However, an interesting new report from GamingBolt (as well as from XDA) suggests that the game is finally coming to Android format - but not quite in the way that you'd expect.

Samsung's highly-anticipated Galaxy Note 9 might be released earlier than expected.
