After launching the Galaxy Note 9 in international markets, Samsung is now readying itself to bring the flagship phablet to the Indian market. The company has already started pre-bookings for the device and has even made the prices official — Rs 67,900 for the 6GB/128GB variant and Rs 84,900 for the 8GB/512GB variant. However, industry insiders have now suggested that Samsung will unveil the Note 9 by next week.
According to a report from IANS, Samsung will launch the Note 9 on August 22. The report goes on to say that the Note 9’s launch event will be one of the biggest in India, with top executives from Korea paying a visit. It is expected that like previous Samsung flagships, the Note 9’s Exynos variant will be launched in India while the Snapdragon variant will sell in selected international markets.
The Galaxy Note 9 brings minor improvements over the Note 8. The new Note gets a more powerful S Pen with Bluetooth connectivity, a dual rear camera setup with variable aperture, a bigger 4000mAh battery, a new variant with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of storage and an upgraded chipset. It will sit above the Galaxy S9 and S9+ launched earlier this year.
