Ladies and gents, the Galaxy Note 9 in black

Ladies and gents, the Galaxy Note 9 in black
We already saw the upcoming Galaxy Note 9 leak in blue, brown, and a little glimpse of the darkest version, but now the black model has appeared in its full side, frontal, and rear layout glory. 

The S Pen is refreshingly black here, as we were worried that the renewed focus on the stylus that gave it Bluetooth connectivity and its own battery, would do to the black model what it did to the blue one - equip it with am S Pen in contrasting color, but that's not the case here.

As a reminder, we are expecting a Note 9 (may be the last one in the series) with a 6.38" AMOLED display, 128GB basic storage, new dual camera set on the back, latest Exynos or Snapdragon top-end chipsets, and, above all, a 4000 mAh battery. Not too shabby, but, at a price hovering around the 1000 USD or EUR mark, it better not be.

Nice but I like the Blue one better.

Agreed. Black will be my choice only if blue isn't available in Canada.

I thought the yellow S-pen would be universal for all colors... I guess I was wrong

How do you tell it's not the Note 8 ? Oh, I see, it has a button placed a few mm lower than the Note 8.

Also by owning it & knowing it's not the Note 8. I swear people complain about the stupidest $#¡t. Google enthusiasts complained about the 'incorrect' button placement, then everyone complained about removing the IR blaster, then about no longer having removable batteries, then the FPS being in the home button, then about it being next to the cameras, now about the (one time) the design is damn near identical to its predecessor. Who ever makes the perfect phone for you, just deal with them & that's it.

The placement of last year's fingerprint reader was perfect.

It’s perfect if you have large hands, like myself. Just because the screens are big doesn’t mean the actual device is gonna feel great in-hand, Doesn’t help that it’s an all-glass device and I think this is one of the reasons why many people are still buying regular iPhone Plus models: Has practical ergonomics & can realistically be dropped without the mental anguish of breaking the curved screen (there’s practically no such thing as a reliable; curved glass screen protector for a Samsung flagship),

I noticed taht as well. Nearly all tech reviewers and commenters complained about the FPS being THE one thing that kept the phone from being the closest thing to perfection we’d see in the future of smartphones. Like nearly ALL complaints of the past, Samsung fixed that sh!t, so I wonder if there’s really gonna be anything for the public, or the tech reviewers, to complain about this time around...I’m sure they’ll find something to keep their YouTube buzz. Grab your popcorn, because this circus is gonna be full of lies, bluffs, and clowns

Replacing batteries and no ir blaster were huge mistakes.

Oh look, here you are once again in a Samsung article. When people put things down as bad as you do it's, because they can't have one so they talk bad about it. Sorry Mommy won't get you one. Once again it's a beautiful phone and you know it.

I've gotten a chance to spend some time with the device and it's every bit of nice and refined! Can't wait to own one...

I like the look of it, new features with S Pen, if I had a complaint I guess it would have to be the camera cutout looks odd to me.

The classic color of smart phones, but still remain the best accept for fingerprint you need to wipe the phone every minutes.
