According to market analysts, the new Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is currently on course to outsell the S9. What's more, it would appear that most buyers prefer shelling out over US$1000 for the premium model.

Samsung released the Note 9 two weeks ago, the device continuing the new tradition of US$1000 premium devices that was introduced by the Note 8 and iPhone X last year. While the media outcry about the rising prices of devices may have led you to believe that no one would be buying the Note 9, the reality of the matter couldn’t have been farther from that, as analysts claim the Note 9 has been selling extremely well.

By extremely well, the source speaks relative to sales of the Galaxy S9. S9 sales were pegged as one of the worst in recent history and, while Samsung has since come out to refute that claim, the company’s statement didn’t do much to convince us. According to analysts, pre-orders of the Note 9  are between 30-50% better than that of the S9, at the same points in their sales cycles.

What’s more, in Korea, it was discovered that the majority of buyers chose to pre-order the 512 GB model of the model—the very same model with a price tag north of US$1000. It makes one wonder, doesn’t it? Perhaps consumers are comfortable shelling out whatever amount OEMs demand for the latest toys? Or maybe the Note 9 just provides that much value? We’ll let you be the judge.

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.
