Rumour mills have also given us a fair idea on what to expect from Samsung's latest flagship smartphone.

Leaks have also suggested that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will launch with exclusive access to the highly anticipated Android version of Fortnite.

Approximately halfway through the 30-second ad, Samsung touts the Galaxy Note 9 as being "1TB Ready with expandable memory" and then shows a 512GB microSD card going into the smartphone, the Forbes reported on Sunday. In fact, a leak just yesterday likely revealed all the little secret details that were left. Another leak recently confirmed that Samsung might not bundle the S-Pen with Galaxy Note 9.

However, you might get some choice as to what comes with your Note 9, as Reddit user Wan997 claims it will be packaged with a choice of those AKG headphones, a Fortnite gaming package, or both for an extra $99 (around £75/AU$135). So far, we have seen a ton of leaks about the device. The company was confident that consumers would rush to buy them in spite of all that, but the opposite ended up being the case.

It then faced a team of some of the world's top players (Blitz, Cap, Fogged, Merlini and Moonmeander) in a best-of-three contest. Since OpenAI's Dota 2 bot beat professional player Danylo "Dendi" Ishutin at the global 2017, the AI has evolved significantly.

With the Galaxy Note 9, it appears as though Samsung will do everything in its power to avoid making the same mistake twice. At the same time, however, it looks like Samsung recognizes that like the Galaxy S9 and S9+, there's no way the Galaxy Note 9 will be a big seller on its own. That makes sense for a couple reasons - for starters, the Note 9 isn't expected to be that big a departure from last year's Note 8, at least in terms of design.

Verizon might be gearing up for one of its famous buy-one-get-one-free (BOGOF) pre-order offers on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 9. We learned about a special value pack just yesterday that will include a pair of AKG headphones, a vehicle charger, a auto mount, and a protective case. It is doubtful Samsung will change that strategy anytime soon.

Quandt claims that prices for the Note 9 will start at £899 in the United Kingdom and rise past the £1,000 marker. For selfies, the phone will offer an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera.
