For nearly twice the price, the Galaxy Note 9 has a new Bluetooth-enabled S Pen, loud stereo speakers with the "Tuned by AKG" logo, a slightly upgraded camera, and a blood pressure sensor. As far as the specifications go, the Galaxy Note 9 features 6.4-inch Quad HD+ display panel.

Samsung Galaxy S9, which was only an incremental upgrade over the previous generation, failed to rake in large volumes and this, coupled with Samsung's last-ditch efforts to boost the sales of the Galaxy Note 9, raised speculations that the company fears that its latest offering may meet the same fate as the Galaxy S9.

Local mobile carriers will end preorders for the new smartphone on August 20, and start handing out the devices to customers on the following day.

The base Galaxy Note9 costs KRW 1.09 million, 20% less ($975/€845). Additionally, pre-ordering customers chose the Ocean Blue colour model that comes with a yellow S Pen was the most popular choice, according to the mobile carrier. Here are 10 things that Samsung's most-expensive smartphone has that Apple's most-expensive phone misses on. "There is no better way to understand the brand new Galaxy Note9 than through the interactive zones and workshops offered by Galaxy Studio at Mall of the Emirates", said Tarek Sabbagh, Head of IT and Mobile Division at Samsung Gulf Electronics.

The carrier did not divulge any numerical statistics for the device pre-orders, so we don't know how much "more than half" of the pre-orders really is.
