Samsung’s strides for staying on top of the game can’t be overlooked. The company has brought improvements to their devices every year. With the S-series of devices being the staple for Samsung’s innovation, Samsung isn’t backing down on the Note series either.
With the launch of the S8 and S8 Plus, Samsung introduced some massive changes to their overall design. While its fair to say that the S9 and S9 Plus weren’t leaps and boundaries ahead of the S8 and S8 Plus, what the S9 and S9 Plus brought to the table were worth it. Sure, coming from the S8 and S8 Plus won’t be a great decision. However, the dual aperture system and dual camera setup Samsung introduced with the S9 Plus was enticing enough for a purchase.
Since storage is a very important factor while choosing a smartphone, it seems like Samsung is taking it too far with the launch of the Note 9.
The 256GB variant iPhone X was already feeling bizarre, but it seems like Samsung felt that it was out of ideas with this launch and decided to give the Note 9 a major boost in the storage department. Looking back, even the S9 and S9 Plus were capped at 128GB.
Given that Samsung is now in full swing with its marketing campaigns and how practical their devices are, we’re looking at about 1TB internal storage on a phone here if you decide to expand the internal storage on the Note 9 via a 512GB MicroSD card. This is completely bonkers and even overkill for the majority of users.
However, given how Samsung and Apple influence a decent amount of its competitors, it won’t take time for phones to release with 512GB of storage. *I’m looking at you Apple*. Who knows? Apple might release the next iPhone with just as much storage.
Budget phones such as the Xiaomi’s Mi A2 are coming with 128GB now, basically closing the gap. However, given how impractical 512GB is right now at this point, it’s likely that the budget-oriented brands would back off and stick with 64GB/128GB/256GB of internal storage.
As impractical it sounds for now, Samsung is definitely looking forward to use this as a marketing move forward based on the leaked trailer that made its way online a few days ago. What could we say except for completely bonkers!
