By now we’ve probably lost count of the amount of Galaxy Note 9 leaks that are hitting the Internet daily. Pricing is the last thing you expect to get leaked but even that has not remained much of a mystery. Well, Samsung will have the final say for sure, but here’s an idea of how the price tag could look like.
The Galaxy Note 9 was listed up for pre-order in Indonesia and this is where the leaked pricing has come to our knowledge. Oddly enough, there’s mention of a 128GB and a 512GB model. There’s no mention of a 64GB of a 256GB variant. As for the 128GB, the leaked poster costs IDR13,5 million, which is about $940 (Rs 64,500 approx) and the 512GB will cost a whopping IDR17,5 million or around $1,215 (Rs 83,400 approx).
Prices, which by the way seem legit, are in line with earlier reports suggesting a €1,050 to €1,250 range. The pre-order can also land buyers a Samsung’s Smart TV for free and a 12-month data plan too.
As for colour variants, there are supposed to be three for the Asian market – Black, Blue, and Copper. The Galaxy Note 9 is not going to be a big upgrade over the Note 8 as Samsung quietly prepares for a big splash in 2019 with the Galaxy S10 series. The S Pen will get some remote control features with the addition of a Bluetooth while the smartphone itself will get the usual specs to upgrade from last year.
So, a 6.4-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED Infinity Display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845/Exynos 9810, 8GB of RAM and up to 512GB of onboard storage is expected. Do you think it is worth the upgrade this year?
