Samsung thinks Huawei’s phones are worth copying and the Galaxy Note 9 proves that

When the first Samsung Galaxy Note made an appearance it marked an important moment for both the company and the industry. Coming with a 5.3-inch display, the device represented a major step forward in size over what the competition was able to provide, like the iPhone 4S which was released the same year and had only a 3.5-inch display.

Samsung’s quest for inspiration

When it added the stylus pen (or the S-Pen), the Galaxy Note line became a really successful phablet which had no competition for a while. Maybe LG’s V series came really close but it never could replace Samsung.

Samsung continued to innovate, including in the Galaxy Note and the S lines feature like a curved display, wireless charging or water resistance. So, you might wonder what happened, if we took a look at the slow Galaxy Note 9 sales.

Samsung is in a tough place and still, it continues to seek improvement and innovation. In doing so, the South Korean company decided to take a peek at what Huawei is doing.

A new contender enters the market

Over these last years, Huawei has slowly but steadily entered the phablet market, starting with Ascend Mate in 2013. While it didn’t provide enough power, it exceeded Samsung’s display measurements, providing a screen of 6 inches. The Ascend Mate 2 took things a little bit further and this quest continued until the Ascend Mate 7 which finally put Huawei on the map.

Is Samsung looking for inspiration?

The answer is yes, possibly. The obvious example would be the Galaxy Note 9’s scene recognition powered by AI. It was first introduced in Huawei’s Mate 10 Pro and it was able of quickly recognizing sunsets, landscapes or cats.
