You will be able to pre-order the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 in Kenya as from tomorrow (August 17). The phone was unveiled to a global audience last week and some of those who pre-order it in Kenya will be able to get it on the 24th of August. Those who pre-order the Note 9 will get the new DeX HDMI cable, a wireless charging pad and a tripod stand for free. The new DeX HMDI cable will let users connect the Note 9 (and a few other Samsung smartphones) to a monitor or TV screen. It is a different approach from the DeX pad that has been around for some time.
