This is a Pixel 3a/iPhone XR style entry level phone for the note. It should be cheaper.

Nah... these phones have a collection of things that make them lesser devices such as; smaller, lesser resolution, are not built to the same material specifications, lack cameras, s-pen, the technologically superior display, superior design (subjective), lesser processor, on-screen fingerprint sensor....not equal and it's not even close.

This is the first flagship Samsung phone in years that has 1080 resolution. It's a lesser phone.

Lesser then note 10+ but greater than the Pixel 3a and iPhone Xr. They are in now way remotely close to being equal, but I do agree the 10+ is lesser as the iPhone Xs is a lesser device than the XS max and the S10 is lesser than the S10+

And if you never read the spec sheet, you would never know it. Outside of slapping it in a VR. I have the Note8 with 1440pixels and I've only tried it a few times at that resolution. It literally makes no difference in the visibility of the phone. I use 1080 all the time b/c it improves battery life and probably speeds graphics(although I don't notice it). If your in a fanboy d**k measuring contest, then 1440 matters. If you care about how your device costs, uses battery, handles graphics, and displays, then 1080 on a 6.3" display is fabulous.

I can agree about most but if this was a save the consumer money type of deal then the phone would come in cheaper than just 50$ less than the note 9 did.

So true. I ran Oneplus devices for a few years and was fine with a 1080 display. I run my S10+ at 1080 and don't miss a thing. Technically it's better than the older Oneplus 1080 screens due to the better colors and brightness.

A $1000 for a cell phone? LOL. What a rip-off.

I guess since some cars cost $20k, then the ones that cost $1.5M are a ripoff? I agree $1000 is certainly alot for a phone. Question. How would you price a phone that cost $400+ to make?

Xiaomi Mi9T pro comes with pretty much the same specs or at least 90% same and costs under 400$

Xiomi does not do R&D, they just simply stole others hard work and put the features stolen into their phones. They can do that but Samsung, apple etc can't. They have to innovate.

I can't find the S-pen on it anywhere. I use the S-pen daily in a variety of situations. It's the #1 reason, I stay locked into the Note series. I wish 2 or 3 other companies would compete here. Lots of other phones can be seen as value plays vs Sammy & Apple. But, the Note is unique.

High end phones cost between $300-$400 to manufacturer. It’s no longer the days of phones cost under $200 and sell them for $650 on a 2-yr contract. I don’t agree with today’s pricing structure, but that has been the price increase ripple effect. Manufacturers want their money back.

I heard it “could” be more expensive than last year.

Nobody will ever steal this from iphones. But only androids are called overpriced when review comes out.

So what, 949 EUR is now "cheap" for a 1080p phone? Samsung obviously didn't learn anything from their previous poor quarter - people aren't buying expensive phones! And why would they when you can buy 90% as good phone for half a price?

Samsung's Note series will outsell ever one of the phones that your thinking of. They have earned it and established robust marketing channels to do so. The Note series literally has no real competitor in the phablet w pen space. Now, will this particular device turn out to be a windfall for Samsung? That remains to be seen. But 1080p is NOT a deal breaker. If I get one, it will definitely be the small Note. I already use my Note8 at 1080p and have for 2 years. Why? Better battery life, snappier graphics, and the exact same user experience as 1440p. Only a small % of buyer will even notice 1080p, and an even smaller group will care. The snap-in VR people will be the only real group who cares, and they have the + anyway.

Ha ha... what a dumbass! When u r able to buy 950euro note cant u spemd another 100euros to get top version of note 10?

I have the same problem here as I've always had. Why do they have to nerf the smaller variant so much? Some of us don't need a near 7" screen for our phone. Why does the 6.3" have to have so many less abilities? And before everyone chimes in with space is needed... Take a look at the Huawei 30 Pro and the fact it fits all the cameras and the note 9 which has literally all the same specs just not as up to date. You take away micro sd card, headphone jack, QHD screen while all the processor/component sizes are shrinking and leave us with a less capable 6.3" note. I don't need all the features but why skimp on so many??

This exactly. The note 9 started out at 1000$ with more features than this which many have been removed and still had the 1440 display. To cut out a headphone jack, smaller battery, smaller display with less resolution, and lose the iris scanner and only be 50$ cheaper makes no sense.

Those who defend here that 1080p doesn't make difference. Yes exactly it doesn't make any diff between having a 1080p n 1440p normally. But point here is why to compromise? If I have to buy a 1k$ phone I need to have all the feature of a !k phone. I don't want to defend a company even though it doesn't make any difference as per the screen.

It could be $200, I'm still not paying that for a display with a hole in it and no headphone jack.

if that price rumor would be true, not bad, now I'm getting entice to get one, not only because of the price perspective but also from freebies they offer to those who will avail pre-order offer.
