More official Note 9 pricing leaks - $980 for 128GB, $1200 for the 512GB version
Korean media is the gift that keeps on giving when it comes to the Galaxy Note 9, which can be expected given that Samsung is the largest conglomerate on its home turf, and its smartphones are the most popular there, too. After the release and preorder dates tip, we now have an idea about the official pricing of the Note 9 in the country.

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 Mate RS, and that one costs north of two grand.

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?
