You can win the new phone before its official release in the UAE. Samsung has been conservative on battery improvements ever since its Note 7 phone in 2016 developed a tendency to burst into flame, prompting an expensive recall and delivering a hit to the company's reputation. The Metallic Copper variant of Galaxy Note 9 will be sold in 128GB only.
"When we look at the trend of the Galaxy S9 sales, the figure has been increasing, and in some regions, the performance even outpaced the Galaxy S8", Samsung Electronics President Koh Dong-jin said.
The new device comes with a brand new S Pen.
Samsung usually introduces new features after every two generations, so it is hardly surprising that aside from a few iterative upgrades, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9 series did not bring anything new to the table.
"The Galaxy Note 9 can do that, too" sounds like a pretty resounding reason to pick it up, if you ask this writer.
Instead of giving would-be Note 9 buyers the best of both worlds-the highest-end hardware with the freshest software-Samsung's latest handset runs the same version of Android that Pixel users downloaded more than eight months ago.
If the reports are legit, the Galaxy S10 is going to be the first Samsung device with three sensors on major camera section.
"The Note has always been our showcase for premium technology and industry-defining innovation, and Galaxy Note9 is no exception". Although this would imply a rather long development cycle or a strategy where the company would allow others to release first such devices and then learn from their mistakes, Koh also revealed that Samsung has no plans of losing the world's first title. Galaxy Note9 builds on Samsung's industry-leading camera technologies with new capabilities that take the work out of getting the ideal picture. It's much like applying filters with an app, except that the phone will do this itself, much the way Google's Pixel phones already do. While many more smartphones are coming in at the $1000 mark, and the Galaxy Note 9 is arguably the one that's most worthy of that price, that's still a lot to pay for a smartphone.
The phone comes with high-end specs and design, as well as the Note line's signature S Pen stylus. Instead what should have been a great phone is just really good.
