Market analysts claimed sales of the Samsung Galaxy S9 was one of the worst ever in the series but Samsung has other ideas, and also believes the new Note 9 will outsell the Note 8.

Samsung released its top of the line device for the year, the Galaxy Note 9, last week to mostly positive media attention. While that attention doesn’t always translate to commercial success, the South Korean giants expect the Note 9 to do well in the market—at least even better than its predecessor, the Note 8.

The Note 9 is, on paper, an incremental upgrade on last year’s Note 8, with more storage, better cameras, and a bigger battery being some of the few notable improvements. This, of course, is in line with the company’s releases this year—the S9 was panned for similar reasons. 

Speaking of the S9, Samsung claims that its current-gen flagship has performed much better than market analysts touted. Reports from multiple sources claim that S9 sales have been abysmal, due to potential buyers choosing to skip the device in favor of holding on to their last-gen S8, or getting the S10 next year. Company President Koh Dong-jin has debunked those claims, however, saying:

“When we look at the trend of the Galaxy S9 sales, the figure has been increasing, and in some regions, the performance even outpaced the Galaxy S8. The Galaxy S8 was released in April last year, and the Galaxy S9 went on sales in March. When we look at the first six months, sales rather increased by 6 percent. It is not too late to make a judgment at the end of the year.”

The executive went on to affirm the company’s trust in the 4000 mAh batteries installed in the Note 9, a much-needed vote of confidence following the fiasco of the Note 7 two years ago.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
