Samsung is the world’s largest smartphone manufacturer, and the Samsung Galaxy S series is the most successful Android smartphone brand.
Even with the popularity of the Samsung Galaxy S9, sales so far are lower than for the Samsung Galaxy S8 – and the sales for that device were lower than sales for the Samsung Galaxy S7.
Samsung even admitted in its recent earnings report that it purposely pushed up the release date of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 to compensate for this issue.
To add insult to injury, Samsung lost some of its top spots this year, most notably to Xiaomi in India and even recently to young upstart OnePlus in the same country.
With all that in mind, one thing becomes perfectly clear: Samsung is betting big on the Galaxy Note 9, and its success (or lack thereof) will have a profound effect on Samsung’s future smartphone strategy.
Now that we know all there is to know about the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, I’m going to go ahead and make a prediction: the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 isn’t going to be sales hit that Samsung is banking on.
