Juicy leak reveals the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 price before the announcement date

Juicy leak reveals the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 price before the announcement date
Samsung's Galaxy Note 9 is one of the more highly-anticipated smartphones for the second half of 2018. As always, we expect Samsung's top-tier phablet to be packed to the brim with cutting-edge hardware. Additionally, some rumors have suggested that the proprietary S Pen stylus would be getting a huge upgrade, but it's still a bit mysterious as to what it might be.

Of course, one of the big questions looming over the Note 9's launch is "How much will it cost?". Recently, smartphone manufacturers have been pushing the boundaries of the premium segment's price point, and some users are legitimately concerned we might be seeing a break of the $1k threshold.

However, an alleged leak from Samsung Poland might lay those worries to rest. Reportedly, Samsung is already organizing meetings and training sessions for their teams so that they can be armed and ready to sell the phablet as soon as it hits store shelves. Polish tech blog Spider's Web has a source that has been at one of said meetings and they revealed the pricing for the next Note.

Reportedly, the standard version of the Galaxy Note 9 (128 GB memory, 6 GB of RAM) will cost zł4,299, which translates to €990. Converting that to US dollars and removing the 20% VAT, which is a part of EU pricing, we get $960.

This falls in line with our own predictions for the Galaxy Note 9's price — we do believe that Samsung will match the price of the Note 8 and not push its luck going beyond the $1k mark.

The source also reaffirmed some previous rumors. The S Pen will have Bluetooth connectivity, though, we still don't know what for. The Note 9 will launch in Black, Blue, and Purple, at least in Poland (and probably in the EU). This means that the previously leaked Gray and Brown colors will either be region-specific or some sort of limited editions, if they end up being made at all.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will be officially announced in less than a month — on August 9th, at the Samsung Unpacked event. It won't be launching immediately, however — as per the rumor mill, the handset will land in stores on the 24th of August.

That's why you shouldn't go to "another tech site". xD

It's probably right, who knows..... Either way now we all know for sure that another Galaxy Note failure is looming around the corner.

If you're going to make a retarded comment, at least explain your reason why it's a "failure" instead of just posting s**t hoping someone will upvote it...

The Galaxy Note 9 is sounding like it's going to be absolutely fantastic. It's improving upon the Note 8 in significant ways, and the Note 8 was widely heralded as a fantastic device in its own right. The massive battery capacity and upgraded A-pen are great improvements. There has also been rumors surrounding the Exynos SoC in it.

"It's improving upon the Note 8 in significant ways," Significant ways? :D :D :D That's so funny :D so far it Sounds like boring upgrade over Note 8 offering hardly nothing for that very high price. Can you say what are these significant new things? Exonys soc isn't neither bigger battery or upgraded pen. Those don't get people to pay around $1000 for this device. This Sounds like it's going to be another badly selling model for Samsung.

What we know is it'll be the best large phone on the market - again. Just like the Note 8 still is.

A normal looking phone.. never thought I would reach a day where I would appreciate the traditional bezel style - it seems to be dying out quickly in favor of notches

It'd be even better if they'd stop with their curved crap too

Lol Way much better than ugly POS notch. Let me take you to the hospital and make a notch on your forehead and see how it feels and looks like.

Ugly POS junk the notch is. Just imagine my TV 65 inch had a notch on the top, how would you feel if you had a notch I piece cut off?

Excellent illustration of the obtrusive nature of The Notch.

Agree totally. I hate the notch. That's why i have the V35

Don't buy it if you don't like it. Apparently more like it then don't like it.

It’s a standout feature that they use. If you don’t like their design methodology that differentiates themselves from their competitors, you can simply get a phone that’s to your design taste. It clearly works fine for their consumer base or they would’ve abandoned it by now.

Will have it regardless. My Note 8 and G7 are up for sale so the cash I get from them will keep me from having too much out of pocket cost at the time of purchase...

How was the g7?

The G7 is actually quite nice. I have no real complaints about performance. It's just LG's UI is still kinda all over the place and when you add in the customization with themes everything doesn't translate over...

Ready to trade in on day 1. Looking forward to getting back in the note line up for the best device released this year.

These will probably be BOGO deals shortly after release. Too many people holding out for the S10 models, and Samsung is hyping them in a way that encourages holding out. Buy this ok model now or the one we really worked on just a few months later.

I sincerely hope they're right in reporting that the base model has 128 gigs of native storage. Nonetheless, I'm prepared for Verizon to disappoint me.

$1,000.00 USD for a boring phone? Nah I’d rather go for the Note 8 pretty much the same phone at half the price on ebay.

It's not, but alright. Depends what you define as "the same". It sounds like most smartphones in the world would fit your description.
