Samsung will start making its flagship phones Galaxy Note 9 and upcoming S 9 in its Indian facility.
The plant that has been inaugurated lately is Samsung’s largest mobile phone manufacturing facility in the world. It is basically an expansion of the existing facility based in the industrial state of Noida that was producing some 68 million units a year. The Korean giant expects to take this number as high as 120 million per year by 2020 – adding the capacity every year in phases.
Straight away, the existing capacity of 5 million units per month will increase to 7 million units a month after this expansion. Indian mobile phone export to Russia, Dubai, Eastern European and various African countries will increase accordingly.
The new facility will not only produce the low cost and budget Samsung mobile phones but also the high-end models of the likes S 9 and Note 9. The latter is scheduled to undergo production by July end and likely to hit the shelves by the end of August.
Unfortunately, Galaxy Note 9 is no way a significant improvement from Note 8 and the Samsung fans’ expectations are relatively at the bottom ever since the upcoming model was accidentally leaked. The model was landed in the hands of Russian tech journalist who reviewed it as well.
The excitement dies as the phone is heavier than Note 8 and does not boast an in-display fingerprint sensor. Instead, Samsung has repositioned the scanner from side to the rear.
Galaxy Note 9 has enhanced the battery capacity to 4000 mAh, and as per the first impression of the blogger, it ran for 25 hours with back-to-back video playback.
The phone comes with an improved S-Pen that is Bluetooth enabled to excite further the note fans who straightaway fell in love with this device ever since the Samsung introduced the S-Pen magic.
It will have 6GB and 8GB RAM variants along side 128GB, 256GB and 512GB storage options.
