New leak reveals Samsung Galaxy Note 9 price in UK, suggests change in pricing in USA
There is little left secret about the Galaxy Note 9, the next big thing for Samsung that the company will unveil in just a couple of days, on Thursday, August 9th.
But one thing that we are still not exactly certain about is the price and now, that puzzle is being solved.
The price of the Galaxy Note 9 in the United Kingdom has just been revealed by reliable leakster Roland Quandt and it gives us important clues to decipher what the price of the Note 9 will be in the United States as well.
Here are the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 prices in the UK:
- Samsung Galaxy Note 9 128GB unlocked (price in UK): £900 GBP
- Samsung Galaxy Note 9 512GB unlocked (price in UK): £1100 GBP
To give you some context, here is the original price of the Note 8 in the UK:
- Samsung Galaxy Note 8 64GB unlocked (UK): £870 GBP
You can see that there is a £30 price hike over the price of the new Note 9 over the older Note 8.
So... what does this tell us about the price of the Galaxy Note 9 in the United States?
It does not make sense to just convert the British currency into US dollars (that is not how pricing works and it does not account for different taxes in different countries), but we can extrapolate a small premium on top of the original Note 8 price.
So, here is the original price of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 64GB unlocked version in the United States: $900.
Add a $50 premium, and our best guess for the Note 9 price is as follows:
- Samsung Galaxy Note 9 128GB unlocked (price in United States): $950
- Samsung Galaxy Note 9 512GB unlocked (price in United States): $1,150
Is it worth paying so much for a phone? You do get a ton of storage with the Note 9 and a phone that will likely serve you well for years, so we can't rule it out, but it's also true that Samsung phones are traditionally often sold at a big discount months after their launch, so if you are in no rush, it might be wiser to wait until Black Friday in November if you want to have the best phone at the best price.
