The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is finally getting its first meaningful price drop in the US. Amazon has the Galaxy Note 9 for $839, which is down from its original price of $999. This is the international, dual-SIM model, so it will work with GSM carriers here in the US, but it will not work on CDMA carriers like Verizon and Sprint.
Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9 is one of the best smartphones of the year so far. It does sport a pretty hefty price tag, so it should be one of the best, and with that 6.4-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED display, it definitely looks the part. It also has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset under-the-hood, along with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage available. Samsung has kept the micro SD card slot as well, so you can still expand it, and have even more space available. Samsung also included a pretty hefty 4000mAh capacity battery on the Galaxy Note 9, so that it is definitely going to last you all day without needing to recharge it. Of course, this wouldn’t be a Galaxy Note without the S Pen, and that is also here. This year, Samsung decided to add Bluetooth to the S Pen, so you can actually use it as a remote for doing things like taking photos, browsing the web and so forth.
