Even though Samsung might not want to release any crucial information about Galaxy S10 in order to take the market by surprise when it finally decides to launch the smartphone, one of its partners said something quite interesting about Galaxy S10. New for the Note 9, Samsung has an enhanced S Pen that works with Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology that allows users to assign quick actions to the S Pen, such as triggering the shutter on the camera. The smartphone was launched at Rs 25,990 and it received a price cut of Rs 2,000 in June. Here are the details, specifications, price and launch date of Galaxy Note 9 in India.
Priced at Rs 67,900 and Rs 84,900 for the 6GB+128GB and 8GB+512GB variants, respectively, Galaxy Note 9 will be available in India at both offline and online channels starting August 24 - the same day as worldwide.
Samsung, which counts India as one of its key markets, is also betting big on 5G and Internet of Things (IoT) to drive the next phase of growth for the company that is locked in an intense battle for market leadership in the Indian smartphone market with China's Xiaomi.

South Africans can get their new Note 9 for R18,999 in cash, and on contract from cellular providers. The S Pen relies on a supercapacitor to keep itself alive, which draws power from the Note 9's massive 4000mAh battery.
These prices are close to the iPhone X, which has two configurations at $999 and $1,149 but half the storage of the Note 9 and no microSD slot.
