Samsung Galaxy Note 9 price, specifications, features launch HIGHLIGHTS: Samsung has unveiled its new flagship, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, at an “Unpacked” event in New York today. The 128GB variant of Galaxy Note will be available in the US in stores and online on August 24 for $999.99 while the 512GB variant of the phone will be available at select retail locations and online starting August 24 for $1,249.99.
This year, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has a lot riding on it, given that the S9 series was not a big commercial success. Also, there a lot of phones, especially from OnePlus and Huawei, that offer similar features but at better price points.
Every year Samsung launches a second flagship, traditionally with a larger screen and battery, before the holiday season. The Note 9, which comes almost half a year after the S series flagship has been able to garner a dedicated bunch of loyalists over the years.
The Note 9 will have to do two things primarily — one, hold on to its loyalists and two, bring in new users. The first aspect will be easier, given that the Note is still a very unique phone with hardly any competition, thanks to its S Pen stylus. The second aspect will be tougher as given the price point there are many phones that offer much more.
