Galaxy Note 9 price plummets as Samsung releases new update for its flagship tablet
The Galaxy Note 9 has seen its price cut in recent weeks with many retailers, including Samsung’s own store, dropping costs to under £650.
Sadly, most of those deals have come to end with the Note 9 back to its full £799 price.
However, if you are still after a bargain then there is one deal available which offers a hefty discount on this phone.
UK retailer Debenhams is selling the Note 9 for just £610 which is £199 off their usual price.
The model on sale is the Note 9 in Midnight Black with 128GB of memory.
That’s a very good price for a phone that offers a 6.4 Quad HD+ Super AMOLED Display, fast processor and dual-rear camera.
There’s also a huge 4,000mAh battery and you get the new S Pen tucked inside which now allows you to control the device remotely.
Along with this SIM-free deal, there’s also some good offers on contract with Fonehouse.co.uk offering the Note 9 for £36 per month with 30GB of data and no upfront fee.
The news of these price cuts come as Samsung has just begun pushing out a vital update to its Note 9 device.
Spotted by SamMobile, it appears users in some parts of Europe are now getting the latest security patches available to download.
If you see this upgrade on your phone then it’s definitely worth installing as it is aimed at fixing some big vulnerabilities.
Some of these problems are so serious they have been deemed critical.
Most of the updates in this May download relate to general issues with Google’s Android operating system.
However, there are also 21 other changes that are unique to Samsung’s software including one which mends a problem which allows keyboard learned words and clipboard contents to be leaked on the lock screen via Bixby.
Samsung is constantly pushing out these updates to make sure its devices stay safe from the latest threats.
In a post on its security website, the tech firm said: “At Samsung, we take security and privacy issues very seriously and we are doing our best to respond as quickly as possible.
“Securing your device and maintaining the trust you place in us is our top priority.
“Samsung releases monthly and quarterly security updates on selected Samsung devices.
“Monthly and quarterly security updates will include patches for Android OS related security issues released by Google, as well as, patches for Samsung-specific security issues.”
It’s currently unclear exactly when everyone will get access to this patch but expect a full rollout over the coming weeks.
