Although it took longer than its predecessor needed — 54 days instead of just 48 — the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has managed to reach the one million units sold milestone in its home market. However, this is better than the performance achieved by the Galaxy S9, which needed 60 days to hit the aforementioned target.

With Huawei breathing down its neck, Samsung seems to be sailing rough waters nowadays. Fortunately, its most recent flagship devices received a warm welcome from everyone, although they are often criticized due to their not-so-friendly prices. The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is precisely such a handset, but despite its high price, it has just managed to hit the one million units sold milestone in South Korea.

According to Samsung, the Galaxy Note 9 needed 54 days to hit the aforementioned milestone. On the other hand, last year's Galaxy Note 8 only required 48 days to reach one million South Korean customers. The Samsung Galaxy S9, which arrived earlier this year on the market, needed no less than 60 days to climb all the way up to the one million units peak.

Although Samsung failed to come up with some solid innovations in the last few years, its upcoming foldable phone might turn out to be the game changer this tech behemoth needs to keep the crown. Samsung only needs to bring this new design to the masses before some Chinese underdog somehow manages to do it first. 

Do you think that Samsung still has what it needs to keep the crown or is this giant slowly going down? Feel free to share your thoughts with us in the comments section, as usual.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
