Samsung Goes on Marketing Blitz for New Flagship Phone

You can now purchase a Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 for RM530 off

Samsung has released its new Galaxy Note 9 smartphone at a gala event in the USA, and the phone is available on pre-order for the UAE now.

The good news for Samsung fans is that there is at least one key difference between the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy Note 9.

It all starts with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 octa-core chipset and Adreno 630 GPU, which is 20% faster and 30% more power efficient than the Snapdragon 835 powered Note 8. The device also showcases an upgraded battery life-a 4,000 mAh battery which lasts for up to 24 hours on standby. Moreover, the price mark for the Samsung Galaxy S10 hasn't been released yet but it's expected to be around £799 ($1,048) and £899 ($1,179) for the standard and Plus models, respectively. In recent years, it has moved closer to the Galaxy S lineup, and the line between the two has really been blurred, especially since the Galaxy S9 Plus is nearly the same size as the Galaxy Note 9. Samsung is also getting more aggressive with battery capacity now that the Note7 recall debacle is well behind it. The company unveiled the Galaxy Note 9 ahead of its schedule after the Galaxy S9 series failed to perform as expected. We finally know what the "major upgrade" for the S Pen is, and we finally know what the new colors are.

The price of the 128-gigabyte Note 9 is set at 1.09 million won ($965), while the 512-GB Note 9 costs 1.35 million won.

Debenhams Plus also has the gold version of the Note 8 available for £650. The report adds that triple-cameras could be a standout feature of Samsung's phones next year, appearing on Samsung's entry level phones and flagships alike. "Consumers get new features that tie various Samsung devices together while maximising the utility of Spotify". But it also means that Galaxy Note 9 users will be waiting for quite a while for the update to Android 9 Pie. This isn't much of a surprise considering the best camera phone in the world right now has a triple-lens camera.

Galaxy Note9 also delivers a PC-like experience with Samsung DeX.

Samsung has confirmed that the Galaxy S10 will not support 5G networks.

Where the Galaxy S10 is concerned, ETNews claims to know exactly what Samsung has planned for its new triple-lens camera. Well, Samsung is not the only brand with triple-camera implementation on smartphones.
