Even better, it's not actually exclusive to the Galaxy Note 9.

The devices that can join the Fortnite Android beta right now are as follows: Samsung Galaxy S7 / S7 Edge, S8 / S8+, S9 / S9+, Note 8, Note 9, Tab S3, Tab S4. At last it matches the Huawei Mate's battery of 4,000mAh.

With this new Bluetooth connectivity, the S Pen also acts as a remote control where you can use it to control your presentation slides, gallery and YouTube playback without having to touch the phone. Samsung stressed no power is required for the traditional inking functions. Fast LTE speeds are thanks to Qualcomm Snapdragon's 845 chip with a Cat 18 modem. Buyers in other regions will get an Exynos SoC with four custom performance cores running at up to 2.7 GHz and four efficiency cores running at up to 1.7 GHz. If just 5% of iPhone buyers a year purchased a pencil, that's more than a billion in extra revenue per year for Apple, not counting any additional iPad or iPhone sales from those who could use the Pencil on multiple devices. But we learned a bit more about the Watch at this event. The Note 9 is created to encourage adoption of the feature by allowing users to connect the phone to a monitor via an HDMI cable, bypassing the need to buy a separate docking station.

Samsung said the Galaxy Note 9's camera combination is able to smartly identify elements of a photo, such as scene and subject, then it automatically classifies it into one of 20 categories, and, finally, it can optimise the saturation, white balance, brightness, and contrast.

Dispute between Canada and Saudi Arabia escalates amid asset sell off
Those caught up in the latest strife between Ottawa and the Saudi government include more than 15,000 students in Canada . TV pundits brought up Canada's suicide rate in what appeared as a broadside against the country's way of living.

The new Note will support up to 1 terabyte of memory - it will have a 512 GB version that will support an additional 512 GB memory card - the source said, making Samsung the first major smartphone maker to sell a 1TB phone. However, it gave us a clue that not everything is quite as joined up as it could be.

During the event, they also unveiled a Galaxy Watch and Galaxy smart speaker. But do you think the Bixby personal assistant responds to Spotify commands? Galaxy Home will act as a SmartThings hub as well, letting users control their supported smart home devices with their voice.

However, a Galaxy Note 9 with Samsung DeX isn't going to replace your laptop or desktop for work or for hardcore gaming. Fitbit has a similar feature called Relax, and the Apple Watch also prompts you to breathe, but that feature isn't tied to your heart rate. However, if battery life and more storage are more important to you, the Galaxy Note9 with 128GB storage at RM3,699 is still worth the extra topup.
