“The Samsung Galaxy Note9 is up for pre-orders in India till August 21st and goes on sale starting August 22nd”
Samsung unveiled the much-awaited Galaxy Note9 at its Unpacked Event held in New York yesterday. In a swift move, the brand has now opened the pre-bookings of the new smartphone in India. The pre-bookings are open till August 21st and the phone will go on sale starting August 22nd. The Galaxy Note9 has been priced at Rs 67,900 for the 6GB RAM variant and Rs 84,900 for the 8GB model that boasts a whopping 512GB of storage. Along with the prices and pre-bookings, the Chaebol has also listed a slew of official accessories for the upcoming smartphone on its online store.
While the Galaxy Note9 comes with support for fast charging in both wired and wireless modes, the brand doesn’t provide a wireless charger with the handset. However, for those who want one for their new smartphone, Samsung has listed two options on the website – a regular Wireless Charger Pad and Wireless Charger Duo. The former is a Qi-certified wireless charger, which can charge the smartphone as well as the Galaxy Watch, Gear S3, and Gear Sport, one at a time. In case you are someone who owns both the smartphone and the smartwatch, the Wireless Charger Duo is made for you. The Duo comes with two charging docks – one stand and one pad, allowing you to charge the smartphone and watch at the same time.
The Galaxy Note9 comes with a premium glass-sandwich design with Gorilla Glass 5 layer on both panels, though you can’t be too careful. Samsung has listed a host of protective cases for the Galaxy Note9 including two flap cases, a silicon case, a rugged case and a leather wallet case. The Clear View and Led View covers come with a flap over the display with customised UX, which lets users operate the smartphone without opening the cover. The leather wallet cover, on the other hand, has been crafted from Italian calf leather and has a microfiber lining on the inside. The rugged case comes with a hard shell and has been drop-tested and granted a military grade rating.
