IGN rounds up the best Samsung Galaxy Note 9 deals in October.
Samsung unveiled their latest flagship phone at Unpacked 2018, the Galaxy Note 9. was released on the 24th of August and the newest edition of the Note generally has favourable reviews and boasts a range of incredible specs. Leading on from last years Samsung Galaxy Note 8, the CPU, GPU, and battery have been given a boost. Samsung have also created a Bluetooth-enabled S Pen you can use as a remote control which is shipped with every order.
The colour variants for the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 are Midnight Black, Lavender Purple, Metallic Copper and Ocean Blue, all available in either a 128GB or 512GB model. The 128GB model price starts at £899, while you’ll be paying a hefty £1,099 for the 512GB model.
Best Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Contract Deals in October
By far the best contract deal for the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 available on the market right now. You’ll have to pay nothing upfront and only £49 per month for 24 months thereafter to receive a massive 100GB of data on the O2 network, and your usual unlimited minutes and texts. To put this deal in perspective, I rarely see mobile phone contracts for new luxury phones going for less than £50 per month.
You’re paying £3 per month more than the deal above, but you’ll be on the EE network. It’s well known that EE are the fastest 4G network in the UK and their contract deals come with additional bonuses such as free EU roaming, 6 months free Apple Music and 3 months free BT Sport.
This contract originally came with 25 gigs of data. It then got buffed by two which means you’ll be getting 50 gigs of data. Although you’ll have to cough up a £178.99 upfront, the monthly cost in return comes in as low as £43 per month which is incredible considering you’re also getting 50GB of data.
Samsung Galaxy Note 9 – The New S Pen
The S Pen has been a unique selling point for Notes for a number of years and the improvements this time around were a big talking point when the phone was announced. For the Note 9, Bluetooth Low Energy has been introduced, meaning you can control the phone from a range of 30 feet. What can you do with it? Take photos, change from a front camera view to a rear camera view, pause or play media, scroll through content and launch apps. Possibly the coolest thing is being able to change slides on a presentation when you connect it to the Samsung DeX, a feature which many lecturers use. If you’re worried about it running out of charge often, don’t. Samsung has claimed that it takes less than a minute to fully charge with it lasting 30 minutes.
