It's a situation many will be familiar with, no matter which phone brand you have in your hand, and while Samsung suggests it has the answer we'll reserve judgement until we've put the Galaxy Note 9 through its paces in our in-depth review process. With 10 million followers on Twitch, Ninja is one of the most well-known Fortnite streamers. That means other Android owners won't get to play until late September.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is due to launch on August 9 at an event in NY, and in the latest set of online leaks, smart cases, colour schemes of the phone have been shared online.

Sources speaking to both 9to5Google and XDA Developers revealed Fortnite's Android release is likely to launch alongside Samsung's new flagship smartphone in August as a 30-day exclusive. Apart from Huawei's ambitions to beat Samsung to the market, the report does not provide too many additional details. However, we will need to see if you can attach the same USB-C dongle to the Galaxy Note 9 and attach multiple peripherals through it, and this also includes a monitor. It is the leaked Galaxy Tab S4 firmware that unveiled the Bluetooth capabilities of the Note 9's (and Tab S4's) upcoming S-Pen. In India, the company is expected to host a local launch event and start taking orders from August 19 onward and would be retailing the device for around Rs 73,000. He hasn't said a word about such a thing just yet so take that with a grain of salt. Samsung dominates the Android ecosystem, and at the moment, Fortnite dominates the gaming world. A foldable smartphone by Samsung has been a part of the rumour mill for over two years now, with the company in recent months confirming that it would be bringing the smartphone to market this year, adding it would not be a gimmick. For now, though, it's clearly rumor territory.
