Just a few days back Samsung has released the latest smartphone of their Galaxy Note series. The latest Note machine is called Samsung Galaxy Note 9. It has nothing much new to offer and its price touches the sky. It costs around $1000. What makes it so expensive is 4000 mAh battery and 8 GB RAM. We have been seeing these specs in Phones like OnePlus 6 and Huawei P20 pro and they cost about half of Note 9 Price. If you already have got the phone, somehow lost it and now you are looking for ways to track or Locate Note 9. You can use the two methods mentioned in this guide.
The Galaxy Note 9 comes in two colors, Midnight Black and Ocean Blue. There are different versions of Note 9. The least amount of storage you can opt for a Note 9 is 128 GB or 64 GB. The full option Note 9 with 512 GB internal storage and 8 GB of RAM costs 1249€. That is way too much for a smartphone. Considering the specs it must be a beast when it comes to performance. Still, spending that much for a phone does not seems sensible when you can find a phone with almost same specs in one-third of its price. You can even find a top-notch laptop in that price, a trip to your dream destination and whatnot in that much money.
