To recall, when the latest flagship devices from the company were launched at MWC 2018, it did not come with AR Core support contrary to speculations.
Compare that with the £739 or $729 you have to pay for a new Samsung Galaxy S9, and that's quite a difference.
In terms of price, Galaxy Note 9 might cost around $1000. So, it's too early to expect the release of Android P for Samsung's compatible devices. If we had to pick, we'd go for the Burgundy Red version, which looks striking without being too bright like Apple's red iPhones.
Samsung's Galaxy S9 also has the advantage of wireless charging, something you don't get with the OnePlus 6. For this year, Samsung is also giving the second iPhone SE, rumored to debut next month, some space before it announces the Galaxy Note 9.
Considering the earlier-than-expected panel production, Samsung is likely to roll out the upcoming flagship model as early as August, one month earlier than it did for the Note 8 series previous year.
Samsung has declined to comment on what resources disclosed. That's two months earlier than last year's production run, hinting that the Galaxy Note 9 could launch in August, a month earlier than its predecessor. There are a lot of co-works underway with outside part suppliers to develop various prototypes.
Citing a study from Ookla, the internet metrics analysis company behind SpeedTest, Samsung highlights that the S9 and S9 Plus have download speeds up to 42% faster than its unnamed "closest-competitor".
