This ugly Note 9 price in Europe translates to about the Note 8 launch tag in the US
Samsung's Galaxy Note 9 is the most leaked and talked about phone in recent memory, but there are still mysteries to be had. What is the battery life, how are the camera samples, will it blend, etc.? Perhaps the most pressing of those unknowns is the pricing and gifting in the different regions it will be sold at.

While we have a few price tags already, they are mainly from Asia, and there is that 999-pound sterling claim for the UK. The US pricing is still a mystery, but continental Europe is no more. A Portuguese carrier just went on and announced the thing on its lonesome, complete with pricing, specs and the gift wrap.

The Galaxy Note 9 price there is set at the whopping € 1,029.99, but fret not - when you remove 20% of this pricing (the import tax for most electronics in Europe), you arrive at $960 in the US. That is in line with the Note 8 tag at launch, but you will be getting much more storage, larger battery, and all the other new features the Note 9 will bring.

The carrier confirms a 4000mAh battery and Bluetooth-enabled S Pen as the killer new options on the Note 9, and says that pre-orders will start almost immediately after tomorrow's unveiling, with a release date to follow on August 24th.
