Samsung Galaxy Note 9 might be bundled with the Gear S3, brown color version revealed

Until now, we've seen leaked Samsung Galaxy Note 9 renders showing the upcoming phone in black, blue, and purple. But those are likely not the only colors variants that the handset will have. A brown Galaxy Note 9 was just revealed in a new render, next to images of the aforementioned blue and black variants - see below.

These new Galaxy Note 9 images - published by Android Headlines - also show the smartphone next to various accessories, including a pair of Gear IconX earbuds, a wireless charging stand, and a Gear S3 smartwatch.

As you probably know, Samsung is no stranger from selling its flagship phones alongside various free gifts. For example, last year's Galaxy Note 8 came with freebies like a Gear 360 camera, or a microSD card. Thus, it's possible that the accessories we're now seeing next to the Note 9 will be bundled with the handset at launch at no extra cost. Assuming that this is true (there's no confirmation yet), customers will likely have to choose between the Gear S3 watch, the Gear IconX earphones, or the wireless charging stand - getting all of them for free should be out of the question. Currently priced at $279, the Samsung Gear S3 would be the most valuable gift here.

Earlier today, we heard that Galaxy Note 9 prices may start at about €1,000 in Europe. This means we can expect the new handset to cost around $1,000 in the US when bought unlocked or outright. Free gifts like the ones mentioned above would certainly ease the burden of such a high price.

not really a hard sell... i actually use the features of the s-pen. i got knocked out of the note line when the 7 had problems, but i plan to return to it.... unless you're an apple user samsung is hard to get away from... samsung pay is very nice, never had a problem with it

Totally agree. This is literally a big S9. We never hear about note numbers because it doesn’t sell well. The S10 should be something new hopefully. Until then im really rooting for Google and Apples lineup this year.

Samsung Reps have the phone in hand and are showing it to retail stores as we type... Spent significant time with it and it's very nice. The optimization is on point and it's a bit thicker than the Note 8. Spen is definitely Bluetooth and has some really cool features! Can't wait to own one of those beaut's!

Have you not read anything about this phone from the first rumor round up to present? All I see is someone who asked a redundant question just to post their opinion about a phone they don't plan on getting. I got two words for your comment: Id-iotic.

in term of design, i think the Galaxy S8 has the best looking back. this Note 9 is the worst of all.

Seems strange that the blue Note would be the only one to come with a different colored S-Pen. I wonder why that it is. I do like that one best though.

Wow with all the rumors about battery, s-pen, and now this. Looks like I’m going back to Samsung next year. This is hard to pass up.
