More official Note 9 pricing leaks - $980 for 128GB, $1200 for the 512GB version
Mate RS, and that one costs north of two grand.The basic 6GB/128GB version that most everyone outside Korea will be getting, is set at the equivalent of $980, while the souped-up 8GB/512GB model will go for the whopping $1210. This jibes in with the Cry not, though, this tag will actually make the Note 9 the cheapest phone with 512GB storage and 8GB RAM, as the only other retail model we can think of with such setup is Huawei's Porsche Design
As a reminder, the Note 9 unveiling event will be held next Thursday, August 9th, in New York, and preorders will start on Monday, August 13th. The official release date is said to be August 24th, but those who preorder in the time slot until August 20th, will start receiving their handsets ahead of everyone else, from August 21st onward. The prices in Korea are usually a tad higher than those in the US, but something tells us that Samsung won't be pricing its new puppy much less than the rumored here $980 basic tag. Any takers?
