As we discussed previously, owing to different market structures and customer needs, Samsung manufacturers multiple different Galaxy Note 9 variants. While most of these models remain specific to a single region and can only be purchased from there, international Galaxy Note 9 model is available throughout the globe. Also, despite different chipsets, — one being Snapdragon and other being Samsung’s Exynos 9810 — the performance should remain quite identical.
