Samsung’s flagship Note lineup of smartphones is set to receive an upgrade on August 9, with the date probably signifying the 9th iteration of the stylus touting smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. While the official launch might still seem a few days away, like every smartphone to be launched in recent times, a lot about the Note 9 has already been revealed. The recent speculation hints towards a leaked pricing of two of the variants of the Note 9 in the Indonesian market, along with the names of the color options they will be made available in.
As per the few promotional posters which were leaked ahead of launch, the price of the 128GB variant of the Galaxy Note 9 is mentioned to be 13,500,000 Indonesian Rupiah which translates to approximately $940, while the higher 512GB storage model has its price set to 17,500,000 Indonesian Rupiah which when converted to USD results in a steep $1,215 price tag. There is no information about the 64GB model which is usually the base variant for Samsung phones, nor is there a mention of the 256GB variant.
The color variants in which the Note 9 would be made available, at least in Indonesia, are Mystic Black, Engineered Blue, and Artisan Copper. The promotional poster also reveals that those who pre-order the Note 9 smartphone will receive a free TV from Samsung.
While we do not have confirmation about the specs on the Note 9, rumors surrounding the smartphone hint towards a 6.4-inch super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2960 x 1440 px (QHD+) and aspect ratio of 18.5:9. The US variant will ship with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC while globally, the smartphone is said to sport the Exynos 9810 chipset. While 6GB of RAM should be the standard, some markets may also receive variants with 8GB of RAM on board. The Note 9 may also inherit the same cameras as found on the S9+ with a 12MP sensor and variable aperture. Additional features include a Bluetooth enabled S-Pen and a large 4000mAh battery to power the device.
