What are some of the key qualities of the Samsung Galaxy Note9?

  • Introducing a powerful, long-lasting, all-day battery. It is the largest battery in a Note, ever. When you have a long-lasting battery, you really can go all day and all night.*

  • Bigger storage. With size options starting at 128GB, the Galaxy Note9 has twice as much storage as the Note8, which means more music, more videos, more pictures, and less worry when it comes to space on your phone. With this phone, you can store more and delete less.
  • The Galaxy Note9 gives you a quick network connection for incredibly fast streaming and downloading, so you can do more, uninterrupted. The Galaxy Note9 has a cutting edge-modem for remarkably fast downloads and uploads.*

  • The all-new S Pen, now with intelligence for ultimate control. While it is still amazing on the screen, the S Pen has more power off screen. With the new S Pen, you can remotely control different applications, like using the S Pen to capture shots from far away, scroll, play music and stop/start recording video.
  • The camera adapts like the human eye for spectacular shots, day or night. This means the revolutionary Dual Aperture lens self-adapts between f/1.5 and f/2.4 apertures depending on available light, so you get beautiful photos in any light.*
    • *The Dual Aperture supports f/1.5 and f/2.4 mode. Dual Aperture is installed on the camera.

Note 9 Verizon BOGO Pre-Order Offer

Two questions: 

 

1. How do I get the offer? When I try to pre-order on BestBuy.com, I don't see it saying that I will get a second phone. I chose Add a Line to my Verizon account and all I see is the monthly cost for the phone, an activation fee, and taxes for 1 phone.

 

2. Is the second phone just a phone without needing service? I don't see the fine print anywhere saying that it needs to be a tied to a line.

 

Thanks for your reply in advance.

Hey Wai,

The get one phone for Verizon does also have to be put onto a Verizon Device Payment plan as noted in the terms and conditions. Savings will be deducted off the full total price of the device and will be reflected in reduced monthly payments over the life of the device. The life of the device is the length of the Verizon Device Payment set up on your account. Somewhere between one to three billing cycles, you will begin to receive the above-described bill credit from Verizon.

You will need to add the second device to your cart. At least one of the two lines must be a new or add-line. So, if you are brand new to Verizon, not to worry as both lines will be new lines. If you are a current Verizon customer, you will need to add a new line to your account.

At the checkout of both devices, you may be charged the tax due on both devices. You may also be charged the up to a $30 activation fee on both devices.

Let us know if you have any additional questions,
.

Hey Tameem,

I was able to confirm that our stores should be able to pre-order the 128GB unlocked version for you, assuming they have not reached their maximum number of pre-orders for the one you are interested in receiving.

If you are interested in the 512GB model, that is only available in select stores but may be pre-ordered online.

Re: Samsung Galaxy Note9 FAQ

Hi there,

 

I put in an order a couple days ago for the 128GB AT&T Note 9, which said it should be available on release of August 24th. I cancelled my 128GB order a little bit ago and decided to upgrade to the 512GB instead and noticed that, while it still lets me preorder, where it said the "Available for pickup on August 24th" for the 128GB now says "Available to preorder - we'll let you know when it's ready to ship" instead for the 512GB (though the option to preorder is still there).

I'm not sure if this is just a technical issue because other carriers have the Preorder option greyed out indicating that they're sold out. Or is AT&T/Best Buy taking preorders beyond available stock? I don't want to preorder the 512GB and find out that I won't receive it until weeks later, or to preorder the 128GB and find out the "We'll let you know when it's ready to ship" was just a placeholder or technical issue. 

Thanks for your time!

Hey Colton,

We are anticipating being in limited supply of the 512GB at release and would not be able to guarantee release day shipping at this time. It is possible that you will not receive the 512GB version on the actual release date but instead in the weeks following.

Re: Samsung Galaxy Note9 FAQ

Ok I was able to pre order the phone however I'm still confused as to how the trade in for 450 works? Does that promotion begin as soon as the phone comes out? Best buy trade in estimator doesnt even have my phone as an option even tho the T and C states the S9 is one of the qualifying phones for 450. Mine is unlocked btw and it's not even one of the options

Note 9 Pre-order

I am planning to pre-order the Note 9 via bestbuy.com. There is a trade-in offer which gives me $450 for my Galaxy S8. Do I have to go the store for the trade or is there an option on the site?

 

Thanks

Re: Note 9 Pre-order

Hey Tameem and Zack,

The save up to $450 with qualifying trade-in and Galaxy Note9 pre-order* promotion is valid in stores only as called out in the terms and conditions of the offer. This promotion will begin on release day.
