Just recently after the global launch, Nepal started taking pre-booking orders for Note9. Now, the company just organized Samsung Galaxy Note 9 launch in India. The launch event was one of the biggest events with media representatives from southwest Asian countries. Top Korean officials of Samsung including DJ Koh and officers from different countries were present at the event. Media personnel of Nepal, India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, and Maldives also joined the event. We also got the chance to attend the event where the company launched a new flagship Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy Watch.
Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is one of the best smartphones right now and it is the best offering from Samsung for 2018. The Galaxy Note 9 price in India is Rs 67,900 for the 128 GB variant and Rs 84,900 512 GB variant. We already experienced the Note 9 in Nepal and we also got the opportunity to experience the phone again here in New Delhi. Samsung Nepal is going to make Note 9 available in Nepal from August 31 while Samsung India is going to start sales of Note 9 from August 24th. Popular online platforms such as Paytm Mall, Amazon India, and Flipkart were taking pre-orders and will sell this new smartphone.
There are two storage variants and Nepal is not getting the 512 GB version for now. However, Indian customers can get both 512 GB and 128 GB variants. It may be because India is a giant market and the spending capacity of people is also higher. One interesting thing about Galaxy Note 9 in India is that it is being produced from the new Samsung Noida plant. Mr. DJ Koh who is president & CEO, head of the IT & mobile communications division told about the details of Noida plant at the event.
