The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 price has leaked ahead of the device’s official unveiling on Aug. 9, along with the best look at the next Samsung phone that has been revealed so far.
The rumor mill has been swirling with information about the Galaxy Note 9, the highly anticipated new edition of Samsung’s flagship smartphone with the S Pen stylus. The price and new image of the device should give customers a better idea of what to expect from it.
Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Price
The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 price was discovered by Polish website SpiderWeb, and it may come as bad news to fans of the Galaxy Note line.
According to information from a local source and a representative of Samsung, SpiderWeb claimed that the price of the Galaxy Note 9 in Poland will be 4,299 Polish zloty at launch, compared to the Galaxy Note 8 launch price of 3,800 Polish zloty. These figures convert to $1,159 and $1,024 respectively, and represent a 13 percent increase.
Smartphones in Europe are usually more expensive compared to their U.S. counterparts, often due to the inclusion of sales tax. However, given the $950 launch price of the Galaxy Note 8, it may be a given that the Galaxy Note 9 price will exceed $1,000.
Best Look At Samsung Galaxy Note 9
The Galaxy Note 9 price leak arrived alongside a new Galaxy Note 9 image tweeted by prolific leaker Evan Blass.
The leaked Galaxy Note 9 photo, which appears to be the best look that users have so far of the upcoming smartphone, features the yellow S Pen stylus that was shown in the invitation to the Galaxy Note 9 announcement, though with no explanation yet on why Samsung decided to give it that color. The S Pen is also shown to have a button on the side, which will likely be used for rumored Bluetooth features.
Other tidbits that can be acquired from the leaked image include no notch for the Galaxy Note 9, and the fingerprint sensor on the back that confirms the in-display fingerprint sensor has been pushed back to next year’s Galaxy S10. In addition, the dual cameras at the back appear to have a wide-angle lens and a telephoto lens, based on their sizes.
The Galaxy Note 9 has been expected to look similar to its predecessor, the Galaxy Note 8. However, with the fingerprint sensor and differently sized lenses breaking all sense of symmetry and continuity, the back of the Galaxy Note 9 looks very busy, to say the least.
