With the Galaxy Note9 Samsung's "most premium, powerful and versatile smartphone" it has ever produced, and Samsung's weapon against Apple and everyone else's flagship models, Samsung is ready to rumble.
A great sign of Samsung's success thus far is with its pre-sales figures, which Samsung says for the Galaxy Note9 have "surpassed all previous Samsung records in Australia for a Note device when compared with the same time period".
The pre-sales period ran between 10 and 24 August, with the Note9 now at retail. In addition, Samsung says it "expects demand to continue as the device goes on sale around the country and customers experience the Note9".
“The Galaxy Note is one of our most loved products and we believe the Note9 is complete game-changer for Samsung when it comes to power, performance, and craftsmanship. It changes what customers can expect from our devices.” McGregor said.
“Updates from around the country indicate a fantastic response at retail outlets as we see more Australians adopt the Note smartphone as their device of choice.”
Samsung reminds us that "Australians will be among the first in the world to get their hands on Samsung’s latest flagship handset after it was unveiled in New York earlier this month".
"The device breaks new ground for the Note category due to the new functionality added to its iconic — and now Bluetooth-enabled — S Pen, performance and power, and a camera that is enhanced by artificial intelligence."
McGregor added: “We believe the amazing response to this product in Australia is due to the demand for premium technology that can meet the demands of our busy lives.
“With its advanced S Pen, incredible speed and performance, and the flexibility and reliability, the Note9 is testament to our commitment to helping people get the most out of a smartphone.”
The flagship Samsung device is available today nationwide across telco operator and retail partner channels, as well as at Samsung Experience Stores and the Samsung online store.
The Galaxy Note9 Ocean Blue 512GB variant has proved to be incredibly popular with Australians, which should come as no surprise given that the 512GB model was selling during the pre-sales period for same price as the 128GB model, but also because of the obvious – 512GB rocks!
Samsung says it is working to deliver additional stock to the country "in the coming weeks".
