You can now pre-order the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 in the United States
Pre-orders for the new Samsung Galaxy Note 9 have just gone live in the United States and you can reserve your Note to be among the first one to get a hold of it.

Just as Samsung promised, the Note 9 pre-orders have started early on August 10th, and the phone will launch in two weeks, on Friday, August 24th.

The price of the Note 9 is set at $1,000 for the base model with 6GB RAM and 128GB of storage, while the beefed up version with 8GB RAM and a whopping 512GB of storage sells for $1,250.

Quickly recapping the Note 9, the phone is an evolution over a successful formula: a beautiful glass-and-metal Samsung design, a massive 4,000mAh battery, an S Pen with wireless connectivity that you can use to remotely control the Note, as well as powerful Snapragon 845 chip with a big cooling pipe, so the phone can handle longer gaming sessions, and last but not least, a camera with automatic Scene Detection that will improve many common shots people take.

So where can you pre-order the Galaxy Note 9 in the United States?

Take a look right below:

Pre-order from today until August 23rd, and you get a free pair of AKG noise-cancelling headphones or 15,000 V-bucks for Fortnite, or both these combined if you pay $100 extra.

Note that some of the biggest carriers in the United States, AT&T and Verizon, have announced buy-one-get-one free (BOGO) deals for the Note 9 on day 1, so you can save a ton if you team up with a buddy. You also have discounts for trade-ins that can lower the price as well.

The colors available in the US are Ocean Blue (with a yellow S Pen) and Lavender Purple, while other colors seem to be only available globally.

Ridiculous that the black variant isn't available. I don't want a blue phone or yellow s-pen.

I have been a Samsung Note user since the Note II. I had to turn in three (yes 3) Note 7 devices (the s-pen was faulty on the first, the second was due to the recall and replaced with a *fixed* unit, then the third was when the *fixed* unit was found to not be *fixed*). I stayed with Samsung and purchased the S7edge, but all they had were the silver models. I was very much looking forward to the Note 9 in midnight black, but the only color options in the US are Lavender (I'm a man) and Ocean Blue (I'm not a tennager who wants a "look at me" yellow s-pen). Now comes the decision - order the S9+ in black, or switch phone manufacturers. I just convinced my wife to switch from the iPhone to Samsung for the s9+, but now I regret it. I could not be more disappointed in Samsung for their decision to force professionals and power-users to choose between phone colors that look like children's toys.

Dude the lavender is fine. I see a ton of dudes with the Lilac Purple color. Even my absolute favorite tech Youtuber, Flossy Carter, called his Lilac Purple S9+ the THANOS edition, which was amazing wordplay at the time.

Well I'm not Flossy Carter, or a huge Thanos fanboy, so...hard pass. My wife has the lilac s9+ though and it works for her

Aren't your phones always in a case? Get a dbrand skin or something. I just want a black because I think the camera strip should stay black on all models. Looks a bit busy.

Do you want a yellow s-pen? I know I don't. The easy thing would be for Samsung to release the black version.

If your paying full price and dont have a phone you will be trading in, B&H looks like a really good deal. In addition to the phone you get a free Samsung Wireless Charger DUO (the new one that charges the Note 9 and Galary watch at the same time), and you get a free DeX Pad Dock. Thats $220 worth of free equipment when you buy the Note 9 outright.
