The price of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 in India was for fans of the country as the South Korean giant equaled the price of the iPhone X with a price tag of $999 in the US for its new flagship device. Now the company has revealed that the Galaxy Note 9 price in India starts at Rs. 67,900, not much of a premium compared to its predecessor because the company is struggling with low sales of the two Galaxy S9 series models earlier this year.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 was unveiled worldwide last night at an event in New York, with a 6.4-inch QHD+ AMOLED panel, an upgraded S Pen with Bluetooth LE and a 4000 mAh battery, which the company claims they will continue battery life throughout the day.
