[Update] – Samsung has officially unveiled its super powerful Galaxy Note 9 in New York, yesterday. The major attraction of Galaxy Note 9 is the evolution of S Pen. Unlike other Note series devices, the just-launched Galaxy Note 9 comes with new S Pen which offers Bluetooth Low-Energy (BLE) connectivity for the first time ever.

In India, the Galaxy Note 9 will be available in 128GB and 512GB variants, priced at INR 67,900 and INR 84,900, respectively.

Samsung Electronics (KRX:005930) is all set to launch Galaxy Note 9 in the coming months. There has been a lot of buzz about the upcoming S Pen-equipped Android Powered flagship, the Korean electronics giant has been working on for long. A lot riding on the success of Galaxy Note 9 for Samsung as it will compete head-on with Apple’s three new iPhones to be released this year, one of which is an affordable version of the iPhone X. Hence, the competition won’t be easy.

The Launch of Galaxy Note 9: Earlier Than Expected

Latest reports that have surfaced suggesting that the launch of Galaxy Note 9 may take place on August 9. The device would be available for preorder from mid-August and will go on sales in the local market from 24th August.

The flagship model is expected to come with a lot of exciting features, the major one among them being S Pen. It will come equipped with Bixby 2.0 and it is also being rumoured that it will be better than the previously launched Samsung Galaxy S9.

Why the Early Release Date?

If we analyse the release date of Samsung Galaxy Note 9, we see that it has been scheduled three weeks prior to the expected release of Apple’s new iPhones. This will give Samsung a significant head start from its arch-rival. There is a lot of tension in the air owing to the upcoming competition that will take place between the two leading tech giants. Given that we already know that the Note 9 will be launched earlier in August, the dates about the sale seem to be accurate.

While the launch of Apple’s new iPhones in September remains the major reason why Samsung is rushing the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, there may be another reason at play here. Samsung has been falling short of its sales goals – thanks to the below than expected sales of Galaxy S9 – and with the launch of Galaxy Note 9, the management is hoping that the flagship model will be able to cover up the lost sales by getting a head start. Samsung is expecting that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will help the company to strengthen its pole position, which is constantly being challenged by Apple. It is for time to tell how Samsung Galaxy Note 9 fares in the market.

What Does Samsung Expect From the Note 9?

When the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 was released after the Note 7 fiasco, the industry experts were not too sure about the market reaction. However, it became clear within a month only people seemed to have forgiven Samsung for that debacle, and the Note 8 performed exceptionally well and sold 1 million unit in a little over a months time of it reaching the shelves in South Korea.

Samsung expects that the Note 9 will perform much better than the Note 8. The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is equipped with exciting feature and is basically an upgrade to the Note 8, so it is obvious to predict that barring any mishap that Note 9 will perform better.

With just a month to go before the flagship phablet hits the markets the excitement is building up. There is a lot of conjecture going about whether the Note 9 will be able to beat the three new iPhones or not? Will the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will perform better or worse than the Note 8? Will the Note 9 be able to make up for Samsung’s lost sales? These questions are for time to answer. All we have to do is wait till the Note 9 hits the markets.
