If you thought it was only Apple trying to sell its iPhone SE on discounted prices, think again. Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9 model, 512 GB storage variant has been seen on sale on the T-Mobile online store in the US. The offer price is just $899.99, a substantial reduction from the original release price of $1250. Now it’s not known if this was an error since this is the price at which the 128 GB storage variant of the Galaxy Note 9 is sold.
Monthly Payments Too on Offer
The chances are this may not be an error since, besides the drop in the price, T-Mobile has a monthly payment offer too in place. The Ocean Blue color device is on offer and you can pay just $149.99 as the upfront down payment along with the applicable taxes and then the remaining amount can be paid at @$20.84 per month for 36 months. Obviously, the carrier has its own conditions to protect its customer base. If some customers avail the monthly payment offer along with the SIM starter kit that makes them a T-Mobile customer but opts out of the wireless service, they will have to immediately settle the balance due to T-Mobile to meet the full price.
Trade-in Offer on the Same Device
T-Mobile has added on the same page where the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is offered at the discounted price that customers can trade in their mobile for the new Note 9 and save $360 in the bargain. There are three slabs on offer namely $360, $240 and $150 in terms of credit in their monthly bills on returning their phones. These slabs are based on the phones being offered in the trade-in. The model numbers are clearly mentioned. Again, there are conditions attached to this offer as well. It is essential that you read through these details on the T-Mobile site before you take the final decision.
Sprint Galaxy Note 9 Users Get Firmware Update
Meanwhile, latest reports suggest that the US carrier Sprint has released the firmware update on the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 on its register to the Android Pie, but has not tweaked the version as many carriers tend to do. Samsung’s One UI duly upgraded for the Pie OS will also be released. But the carrier would have definitely checked out that the apps that its devices are loaded with are compatible with the new OS. It is being reported that the update file is 1.8 GB in size and the device users on Sprint should be ready to receive the update.
