Samsung has another boring new device it’ll launch alongside the boring new Galaxy Note 9
The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are two of the best smartphones on the planet right now, but no one really cares. Why? Because they can pretty much be summed up as slightly better versions of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, with slightly faster performance and slightly more impressive cameras. They’re “S” updates just like Apple used to release every other year, expect Apple had something going for it that Samsung does not: if someone wanted to buy a brand new flagship iOS phone in 2015, their choices were an iPhone 6s or an iPhone 6s Plus. If someone wants to buy a brand new Android flagship phone right now, they have more choices than they can count. Competition in the Android smartphone market means minor, iterative updates are easy to pass on, especially when they’re insanely expensive. Well, to be fair, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are much less expensive than they were at launch thanks to price cuts and endless promotions. In fact, the first price cut came just one month after the new phones were released. Ouch.
Precious few people are buying Samsung’s Galaxy S9 and S9+ because they’re boring updates. Yup, Samsung is saving all of its exciting new launches for next year. That means we have at least six or seven months to wait before the good stuff arrives. Sadly, we have a few more boring launches to get through before the hotly anticipated Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ debut next year.
