Samsung at it again: users getting unsolicited Note 9 ads on their older Galaxy devices
Samsung is known for sometimes being a bit too aggressive in advertising its new products to current customers and it seems the company is at it again now that the Note 9 is coming out.
Found on Reddit, user "AlanRosenthal" has just reported that they have gotten a pop-up notification to buy the Galaxy Note 9. It doesn't even appear to be a part of a promo or a discount offer — just an outright "pre-order now" message.
Now, in Samsung's defense, you should be able to opt out of such ads by either going into Settings → General → Marketing Information and disabling any option that says you consent to such messages, or — if that doesn't work — try to look for a "Samsung Ads" app in Settings → Apps and uninstall that one.
