Samsung has set up a partnership with popular Twitch Streamer Tyler “Ninja” Blevins to advertise its new Galaxy Note 9. In the video below, Ninja shows off the delivery of the new phone he was given exclusive early access to.

Samsung also partnered with Fortnite creator Epic Games by giving out a free Galaxy Fortnite skin to those who purchase the new phone. They also gave Ninja early access to that exclusive skin too.
Worth noting: Samsung promoted the video of Blevins on Twitter, and since it was posted last week, it now has close to about 4 million views. Blevins also revealed gameplay with the new in-game skin and that video already reached 7.7 million views.
It seems more and more companies are partnering with either esports companies, leagues, or Twitch streamers to promote and hopefully boost sales of their products. The good news is that it seems to be working. Does this entice you to pick up the new Samsung Galaxy Note 9 just to get the exclusive Fortnite skin? Let us know.[Source]
