New leak reveals Samsung Galaxy Note 9 price in UK, suggests change in pricing in USA

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.

SMH, the most over hyped phone of the year, of course it has a higher price. Not saying the Note 9 isn't going to be incredible but damn so much hype for what is essentially an S9+ , calling it a gaming phone is a joke as well, why wasn't the S9+ advertised as such, it is the same phone from a hardware perspective sans the S-pen. The Note line use to be great but after the Note 3 it fell off, It's suppose to be better than the current S flagship not a damn clone with a pen.

The Note 4 was the last best phone. It still had a better screen and processor than the S5 and better build quality too.

The Note 4 was pretty great, I just wasn't a fan of such a high resolution screen on a 2014 phone, struggled in performance a little bit because of that but as you said it was defiantly better than the S5 and was the last True Note!

I will wait and see what the bundle deal is, cant justifiy spending £900 when i already habe the note 8, its an incremental update to an akready solid phone, although the features sound handy its not such a step up, i might just wait for s10 pro instead

If Samsung gave me $300 for my old Moto X Pure, I'd take a Note 9 off their hands :)

I can recall really looking at the Moto X Pure three summers ago. 2015 was when Samsung had stripped the Note 5 of its micro SD card slot. Oddly enough, when Motorola removed the micro SD slot from its top-spec Droids in 2013 I went over to Samsung. First with the S4 then with the Note 3. Perhaps, going forward, at some point in the near future, top-spec smartphones will have 1TB and 2TB native storage options which could obviate the need for removable storage but I would not be so quick to say this for certain.

The ones who constantly complain about price these days are the ones who can't afford it. Quit acting dumb, you knew how much it's going to be. Depending on how the Note 9 feels in the hand, I'm going to pay off my S9+, sell it then get the Note.

The ( NOTE 4 ) was the last one for me too, great phone. Did the ( Note 2 ) then ( Note 4 ) and stopped when they discontinued replaceable BATTERY, glad ( SDCARD, HEADPHONE JACK ) are still there. Unless they discontinue the ( SDCARD ) on the ( Note 9 ). There is no reason for the expensive ( be it faster ) internal storage. You can only listen to music or play videos in real time. Faster access time for internal storage is unnecessary, cheap SDCARD(s) are a better choice and would bring the cost down.
