Despite being one of the biggest tech companies in the world, Samsung is scared about its upcoming Galaxy Note 9 not selling well. We previously reported that Samsung is disappointed with Galaxy S9’s sales and that its quarterly year profits are lesser than expected.
Therefore, Samsung is doing its best to advertise Galaxy Note 9 in order to get fans excited about it. Not just that, but Samsung has even teamed up with a totally unexpected partner, Epic Games.
Galaxy S9 Poor Sales
Galaxy S9 held the title of being Samsung’s flagship smartphone for the past couple of months and the South Korean tech giant had high hopes for it. Unfortunately, the smartphone didn’t sell that well and it became the worst selling Galaxy S smartphone since 2012. With that said, it should come as no surprise that Samsung has doubts about Galaxy Note 9 becoming a best seller.
Teaming Up with Fortnite
Epic Games announced that Fortnite is ready to launch on Android and that the game will be available exclusively on Galaxy Note 9 during the first couple of days. This is a totally unexpected partnership between Samsung and Epic Games and it confirms to us that Samsung is indeed scared that Galaxy Note 9 will not sell well.
Free Fortnite V-Bucks
Samsung wants to make sure that all Android fans consider buying Galaxy Note 9 and that’s why it included a bonus of 15,000 Fortnite V-Bucks for anyone who purchases the smartphone. V-Bucks are the in-game currency of Fortnite and it allows players to buy cool cosmetic skins.
August 9th Launch Date
Nonetheless, Galaxy Note 9 is scheduled to launch tomorrow at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York during a special “Unpacked” event. In addition, Galaxy Note 9 will also showcase what the brand-new Galaxy Tab S4 tablet is capable of during the event.
