  • Samsung Galaxy Watch LTE version is pricey

It is good to see Samsung not falling into the trend of notch phones.

Running Android Oreo, the smartphone comes equipped with a dual rear camera set up - 12MP + 12MP sensors along with an 8MP front facing camera.

Many past Samsung features failed to gain traction because app developers couldn't be bothered to make the tweaks needed. The secondary 12MP telephoto lens is present to provide the user with portrait photos. The similar update has been rolled out for Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ as well along with Google's August 2018 security patch.

The Galaxy Note9 also comes with an Iris scanner and a fingerprint scanner. The phone also has the dedicated Bixby button that was introduced in the S8 for the first time.

"With the Note series, Samsung has managed to lock in a user base which are hooked onto the flagship experience revolving around S Pen, which acts a focal point". With the Bluetooth connectivity, you can use the Galaxy Note 9 S-pen as a remote control. The Note 9 also retains the 3.5mm headphone jack and gains a stereo speaker setup. And this is why you need to be ready to pay a bit more as well.

The report claims that according to industry data, more than half of customers who preordered the Galaxy Note 9 in South Korea have opted for the 512 GB version over the 128 GB version.

"I am pleased to present Galaxy Note 9 on behalf of the 70,000 Samsung employees in India". The 6GB RAM version gives you 128GB of internal storage, while the 8GB RAM variant will give you 512GB of onboard memory.

Even though Samsung might not want to release any crucial information about Galaxy S10 in order to take the market by surprise when it finally decides to launch the smartphone, one of its partners said something quite interesting about Galaxy S10.

Summing up, if you're looking for an affordable premium phone with high-end performance, OnePlus 6 remains our top recommendation.You may also consider Vivo Nex which delivers high quality camera and unique design without compromising on the performance. Samsung on its e-store is offering an additional Rs 4,000 cashback with HDFC credit cards, bringing down the effective price to Rs 51,900.
