Starting today, August 24, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is officially available to buy in the US. One particular variant of the smartphone seems to be in high demand (or maybe Samsung hasn't made enough of it), and, if you order it, you'll have to wait until September, or even October to receive it. We're talking about the Ocean Blue Galaxy Note 9 with 8 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage space, which costs $1,249.99 and is backordered pretty much anywhere Stateside.
Samsung says it can not ship the unlocked Ocean Blue Galaxy Note 9 512 GB before September 9. Verizon's version has an estimated ship date of October 12, AT&T's variant is expected to arrive between September 13 and September 18, while T-Mobile's variant will arrive between September 19 and September 26. As for Sprint, the fourth largest US carrier doesn't offer the Galaxy Note 9 512 GB at all.
Meanwhile, all other Galaxy Note 9 models (Ocean Blue 128 GB, Lavender Purple 128 GB, and Lavender Purple 512 GB) have pretty normal shipping dates. However, depending on where you're buying your new Note from, you may still have to wait until next week to get it.
