Samsung’s notorious Galaxy Note7 had to be recalled amid widespread reports that the phone overheats and catches fire. The company was able to restore the faith of its fans and others in the Galaxy Note lineup by releasing the Note 8. However, people are still scarred by the wave of incidents that took place two years ago, and this prompted Samsung’s mobile chief DJ Koh to ensure everyone that the 4,000mAh battery of the Galaxy Note 9 is completely safe and incapable of causing harm.
DJ Koh Also Stated That the Galaxy Note 9 Will Sell Better Than Its Predecessors
To recap, the Galaxy Note7 exploded because its battery was catching fire spontaneously. However, DJ Koh has clarified that the engineers are confident about the safety of the battery of the Galaxy Note 9.
Users do not have to worry about it, and as an added dose of confidence, Koh went on to say that the Galaxy Note 9 could outpace the Galaxy Note 8 in terms of sale. He believes that the Galaxy Note 9 offers better performance, and ships with an intelligent camera and specialized S-Pen accessory that could become major selling points for customers.
He is also confident about the phone’s sales performance because of its bigger battery, and the Bixby 2.0 assistant, but only time will tell if his predictions can be held true or not.
“The battery in the Galaxy Note 9 is safer than ever. Users do not have to worry about the batteries anymore.”
Koh also emphasized the importance of the Indian smartphone market, though it should be noted that the U.S. market generates the most revenue. While talking about markets overseas, he mentioned the Chinese smartphone brand Xiaomi, which became the top-selling name in India in Q4 2017. However, revenue is just as important as the number of units sold and revenue-wise, Samsung outperformed all other brands in India but it appears that the Galaxy Note 9 is intended for developed markets thanks to its ridiculous starting price.
The Galaxy Note 9 is priced at $999 for the base model that is sold in the U.S. The phone is available in two storage combos; a 6GB RAM and a 128GB internal storage one, followed by an 8GB RAM and 512GB native storage variant.
