As the post on XDA Developers explains, Fortnite is still technically unplayable on Android (at least until tomorrow), but the site's own Max Weinbach managed to bypass the app's authentication requirements and jump into a game a day before it actually arrives on Samsung devices via the Game Launcher app.

Samsung is about to launch its highly-anticipated Galaxy Note 9, the latest phone in its premium smartphone range. That's just as true in Fortnite, and since the console versions officially support mice a predominantly controller-based segment of players occasionally getting smoked by mouse users. But according to other Note 9 rumors floating around, we anticipate that the phone will cost more than $1,000 and launch in retail stores on August 29. You can also head to Samsung Newsroom, Samsung.com or Samsung Mobile Press when the event begins. If you're interested in watching the Unpacked event, the live stream is available on Samsung's page as well as YouTube.

Possibly, Samsung will have a lot in store for users today and might even surprise us.

And further arrivals are now expected before the 5pm cut off today for Premier League signings. The Merseyside outfit are also closing in a on deal for Brazilian winger Bernard.

We won't know for sure until next week, but one intriguing possibility is that Epic might start to move away from separation of players based on platforms and instead move to gating them by peripheral, regardless of what kind of machine they're playing on.

As well as covering the event on the ground in NY, we'll also be providing analysis and answering reader questions. Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
