Samsung appears to have canceled the grey-colored Galaxy Note 9

Samsung appears to have canceled the grey-colored Galaxy Note 9
Back in June, the first information surrounding the Galaxy Note 9’s colors revealed that five variants were reportedly in the works: Black, Grey, Blue, Copper, and Lavender, although the latter two were still unconfirmed at the time. Since then, press renders have revealed that these two variants will, in fact, be released alongside the black and blue models. However, no press renders of the grey device have appeared.

While still not completely confirmed, it’s now claimed that Samsung has actually canceled the grey variant altogether, hence the lack of Galaxy Note 9 press renders in that color. If this is indeed the case, it’s unclear why the South Korean giant may have chosen to do so. However, considering the Galaxy S9 and S9+ have been selling relatively poorly in comparison to previous flagship models, perhaps it became clear to Samsung that the grey variant of its flagship device isn’t as popular as initially thought. Alternatively, the brand may have simply chosen to divert its manufacturing and marketing resources to its other more unique color offerings in the hope of boosting sales in the remaining months of 2018 – Samsung is hoping the earlier-than-usual Galaxy Note 9 release will make up for lackluster Galaxy S9 sales in the first half of the year.

Currently, the Galaxy Note 9 is expected to begin shipping alongside its official accessories on August 24 following a pre-order period that is rumored to commence on August 14. The device, which brings only small design modifications over last year’s Galaxy Note 8, is set to offer a large 6.3-inch display and will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 in the US. Internationally, the Exynos 9810 will be included. Regardless of the processor, though, the base model of the smartphone is rumored to include 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. However, a more impressive model with 8GB of RAM and a whopping 512GB of storage is also set to go on sale.

Cancel the whole phone line and call it a day. Why impose these hot trash devices to the world? #Trolling

I think it's not because it's not a popular color. The Titanium Gray Galaxy S9 was not widely available and marketed to begin with. I would have gotten that instead of the Midnight Black if it was released in my country.

Depends on the country, my region had black and gray. Purple took almost 2 months to be available and blue isn't available till now

Canceling this for good, better focus on low and mid tier phones, the chinese iphone knock offs were eating your market share. If this trend continue, samsung gonna lose on both ends, flagships agaist  and low ends against samsung.

The release of the cheaper Honor Note 10 isn't helping their case, either. Combine that Honor device with one of the latest super-powered, discounted chromebooks & you technically have the best of mobile and computing for the next couple years & at a fraction of the cost of what the top tech brands are going for. This coming year in tech will be a monster, indeed
