Believe street prices will be lower. If it's still high, I'll hold out for the Mate 20. Not condoning the price for what essentially is just an S9+ with a S-Pen. There is also no guarantee the battery will be good given almost certainly we are having the Exynos version which is the same as the S9+ where the battery was below average for its capacity. The Exynos version both the S9 and Note 9 we are using isn't the best since we aren't getting the Snapdragon 845.

Ya price is holding me back. Will use my Note 4 for longer until it breaks down. That price for Note 9 if last 4 years like my Note 4 still ok, but things like water in the water cooling system etc makes me cautious of jumping on it...... prob wait 2 months or so for it to be tested in the wild first.

Not going to be cheap, but Note 9 freaking looks like the most complete phone to me ever, esp if you get the 512gb/8gb option. Samsung really going all out for Note 9



- IP68 dust/water proof (up to 1.5m for 30 mins)
- Stylus (Bluetooth integration)
- Super AMOLED 1440 x 2960 (~516 ppi density)
- Snapdragon 845
- MicroSD, up to 512 GB
- 512 GB/8 GB RAM
- Dual Camera: 12 MP, f/1.5-2.4, dual pixel PDAF, OIS 12 MP, f/2.4, 52mm, 1/3.6", 1µm, AF, OIS, 2x optical zoom
- Video: 2160p@60fps, 1080p@240fps, 720p@960fps,
- 3.5mm jack
- Stereo speakers
- Samsung DeX (No DeX pad required)
- Fast battery charging (Quick Charge 2.0)
- Qi/PMA wireless charging (market dependent)
- Non-removable Li-Ion 4000 mAh battery
I agree.

Peeps comparing to Huawei must really enjoy a subpar screen experience. To me it's like night and day. The only panels that I see can rival are from the iphone x.

Iíve used Huawei mate 10 pro for approximately 4 months. Screen and performance canít beat Samsung or Apple

Iím frustrated by the OS aggressively killing apps to save battery. Simple things like automatically inputting OTP, scanning of QR codes are not found. Itís also frustrating meddling with features, which was forced on users, such as screen saver on lock screen

I donít even want to mention why pro is using a lousier screen than mate 10

Anyway to each his own. Just because one thinks the price isnít right, thereíre others who feels ok

For the new DeX, possible that it will be available for current Note 8 too?? Without using the pad is so much better.

If u are price sensitive, get the note 8. Unless there is a feature of note 9 you die die must have.

My guess is NO.

No reason to kill a selling point for getting people to upgrade. Just like the case of AR emoji

If Samsung can put it into the disappointing Tab S4, they definitely can put into Note 8 which is even more powerful than Tab S4?

But dun think they will, or their Dex station and pads can all scrap liao.

Waiting a while to see if any major field issue is reasonable, but I really dun think you need to consider whether to upgrade to Note 9 or not (if proven no issue), since you're still using Note 4. It's just the most awesome phone now in almost every aspect
