UAE retailers start pre-orders for Samsung Galaxy Note9
The Samsung Galaxy Note9 has been officially unveiled, and shortly after its launch UAE retailers are giving consumers in the country the chance to pre-order the South Korean tech giant's most powerful device so far.
And while the 6.4-inch device is also Samsung's most expensive smartphone, it does come packed with features, as unveiled during the Unpacked event in New York on Thursday.

The Note9 comes in two internal storage/RAM combos at 128GB/6GB and 512GB/8GB. Prices for the UAE have been confirmed at Dh3,699 and Dh4,599, respectively, and are inclusive of VAT.
And as always, the UAE's telecom firms and retailers are dangling some freebies for the earliest customers - in particular, a JBL headphone and Bluetooth speaker. The latter, however, will only be given to those who order the 512GB model. The value of the giveaways is at Dh1,248.
Etisalat is offering a standalone Note9 for as low as Dh153 a month with its Smart Pay offer. Du, meanwhile, has it for as low as Dh295 with its Smart Plan 150, plus a limited-time chance to get an additional 10GB of data.
Major retailers Sharaf DG, Jumbo Electronics, Eros Digital, Jacky's Electronics and Plug Ins have also started accepting pre-orders, with installment plans also being offered for as low as Dh173.
Amazon-owned online marketplace Souq.com also has the same price offers, including the bonus items.
LuLu Webstore is also accepting pre-orders, with the same free items.
The Galaxy Note9 will hit shelves on August 24.
