Samsung has kicked off Galaxy Note 9 pre-orders yesterday, and the Galaxy Note 9 pre-order video has just been published by Samsung New Zealand on YouTube. Samsung knows only too well that a mediocre release simply won't sell in 2019, and with the bar already set pretty high by the Galaxy S9 series released earlier this year, Samsung has much to prove.
The source, as Evan predicted, has since been taken down. The Galaxy Note 9 will come with 512GB on-board storage as well, confirms the teaser video. In a newsletter email sent to customers in New Zealand, the Korean company gave us an extensive look at the new Note 9 - there's even a product video of the phablet.
Samsung will make the Note 9 official with an event on August 9, so we have only six days left to wait before all of this is official.
The Samsung video starts off by touting the power of the Galaxy Note 9. Samsung places emphasis on storage; the Note 9 could hold 1 TB of (expandable) storage. The one design change is a reworked fingerprint reader placement, which was panned previous year for being too hard to reach.
The truth is, though, for productivity and entertainment powerhouse devices like the Note 9, having big internal storage space in the armoury is very desirable. A horizontally-aligned dual camera setup will be included on the back, while a fingerprint scanner will sit below those two cameras. And this could be the starting price for the Galaxy Note 9 in India as well. The phone's display is expected to be a 6.3-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED.
