The launch of the Galaxy Note 9 might not have been sufficient to steer Samsung out of troubled waters when it comes to the flagship smartphone segment, the current reigning phablet has still ended up producing dividends for the company. Despite its ludicrously high price tag, the Galaxy Note 9 reached the one-million sales mark in Samsung’s home market, but the company should push to launch that foldable smartphone and its Galaxy S10 family as early as possible.

According to the latest statistics, the Galaxy Note 9 managed to reach the mini-milestone in just 54 days. While that is an impressive feat, it should be noted that the Galaxy Note 8, the predecessor that was launched last year managed to achieve the same landmark in just 48 days. This could mean that customers are transitioning to the high-end smartphone lineup at a slower rate, most likely because they might not be seeing sufficient compelling offers in spending a small fortune on a device like this.

This can probably be the reason why Samsung is investing its time, and resources on its mid-range family. Surprisingly, the Galaxy A9 (2018) does not belong to the premium range of the Korean giant’s devices and it ended up touting the world’s first quadruple camera system at the back. Similarly, the Galaxy A7 (2018) features a triple camera system at a single side, revealing that as the competition continues to heat up at that upper pricing spectrum, Samsung should have more faith in marketing in lower smartphone segments in various markets.

For now, we will be looking forward to the foldable smartphone, which is expected to be unveiled next month. According to sources, the device may be used as a tablet thanks to the increased screen real estate, but we will have to see how useful that ends up being in real-world scenarios.

Do you think the Galaxy Note 9 has the potential to generate substantial revenue for Samsung, or should the technology behemoth place its focus on other things? Tell us your thoughts down in the comments.
