    Reading that the Note 9 might be released early. Like July...Just another rumor or is there some truth to it. What I found interesting is the article also says the s9 is not selling that well and that could be the reason they might move up the date. Just wondering, should it not be the other way?

    We could see the Galaxy Note 9 a bit earlier than expected

    I can't see Samsung trying to rush the Note series due to bad S9 sales... I'd like to know what they are considering bad sales.....

    I'm guessing most people just didn't see the big wow factors they were hoping for.

    they are saying it is bad sales because so far they have sold less than what the s8 sold when it was first released.

    With phone prices sky-rocketing close to $1000 each I think it's time manufacturers realize that many people aren't going to rush out an buy the new model, just because it's the new model. Maybe they did in years past, but who can afford that now year after year. This is the first time I have had the same phone for 18 + months in a long time. I'm not going to spend $750 just to have the new model, when my current phone still runs great.

    I agree! But I also think most people don't see it that way now that so many people are doing the installment plans on their devices. I also think that is factored into the price... Therefore people buying devices outright are getting ripped...

    The longest device I had was my Note 4 and i think i made it 20 months with that. At this point i still plan on keeping my Note 8. I'm really looking at getting a Dex to compliment it.

    I agree, not everyone can afford to pay that amount to upgrade a perfectly good phone every couple of years. I am afraid the note 9 will also be disappointing.

    Especially when those 1k phones will cost a fraction of that few months later.

    I'm sure there are but the quality and super slo has to come from hardware.... Perhaps I'm wrong....

    look like it is a combination of both...the following is a pretty good article about it.

    Samsung reveals how it pulled off 960fps slow motion on the Galaxy S9/S9+
