Samsung Galaxy Note 9 surfaced again on the Web ahead of its August 9 launch. But unlike the previous leaks, the latest revelation shows the next-generation Galaxy Note in a close-up view that confirms the presence of a 3.5mm headphone jack. The fresh leak also apparently highlights the handset in Purple and Gold colourway. Separately, it has been alleged that Samsung itself revealed the Galaxy Note 9 price at its recent pre-briefing. The smartphone was recently reported to go on sale on August 24. This is now said to be the same date when the Galaxy Note model will debut in Poland.
As per the fresh image, courtesy Twitter user Ice Universe, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will be available in a Purple-Gold colour combination. The image shows the back panel of the Purple-coloured Galaxy Note model alongside an S Pen in Gold. Additionally, it highlights the availability of a 3.5mm headphone jack. The traditional jack sits against a USB Type-C port.
While the new colour combination seems a bit awkward if we look at the previous Samsung Galaxy Note models, the leaked image suggests that Samsung may make the move to attract customers. Interestingly, the original Galaxy Note 9 invite that Samsung had sent to the media last month also sported the Gold-coloured S Pen.
It was previously rumoured that the Galaxy Note 9 will come in as many as five colour options, including Blue, Brown, Black, Lavender, and Grey. Contrarily, the Galaxy Note 8 debuted in August last year in Midnight Black, Maple Gold, Orchid Grey, and Deep Sea Blue colour options. Some other Galaxy models did include 'Lilac Purple' colour option in the past, including the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. This might be the same treatment with the Galaxy Note 9. But of course, it will be interesting to see the Gold colour S Pen.
Coming towards the price details, Polish publication Spider'sWeb claimed that Samsung in a pre-briefing of the Galaxy Note 9 revealed its price. The handset is said to come with a price tag of PLN 4,299 (approximately Rs. 79,500) for the 6GB RAM and 128GB storage configuration. This is higher than the price of the Galaxy Note 8 that was launched in India at Rs. 67,900. Also, it is reported that the upcoming Galaxy Note 9 will debut in the Polish market on August 24 with pre-orders beginning on August 9 - the same day of its formal announcement.
If we believe the recent leaks and rumours, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will feature a 6.4-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED Infinity Display with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio and will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC or Samsung Exynos 9810 SoC, coupled with up to 8GB of RAM. The handset is also said to have 512GB of onboard storage and include a dual rear camera setup.
