The official launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note9 is less than a month away. Samsung previously officially teased the device by offering a close up picture and video of the new S Pen in its invite to the Unpacked event scheduled for Thursday, 9th August.

Now, a poster or promotion flyer for the upcoming Note9 has leaked via Ice Universe on Twitter. The purported photo of Samsung's promotional material clearly shows "The new super powerful Note" lying face down with the next gen S Pen resting on its back.

Interestingly the S Pen is gold, just like in the Samsung teaser video, even though the smartphone is an alluring blue/purple, possibly graduated, finish. So far the expected colour range for the phone doesn't include gold, so will they all 'suffer' from this kind of colour clash, or might we be looking at a special edition of some sort?

Other things you can see in the poster image are (from bottom left) the S Pen silo, a speaker grille, a mic hole, a USB Type-C connector and a headset jack. Across the upper portion of the back of the phone, above the Samsung logo, it is possible to make out the rounded rectangle finger print scanner with the camera and flash array above it.

Already we seem to know a lot about what might make up the Samsung Galaxy Note9. To recap, we think it will pack the following hardware:

  • Processor: Snapdragon 845 in USA / Exynos International
  • Display: brighter Super AMOLED panel
  • RAM: 6GB/8GB
  • Storage: 64GB/256GB/512GB
  • Rear Camera: Dual 12MP cameras with variable aperture, improved OIS
  • S Pen: adds Bluetooth support for greater smart device integration
  • Battery: 4,000mAh

Pricing indications

In another news nugget via Polish site Spider's Web, the Note9 is expected to sell for 4,299 PLN. That sum is roughly equivalent to £880. However, the listing spied is for a 128GB model.

Samsung will be broadcasting the Unpacked event live on the Samsung global news site, and elsewhere. As well as finding out the true hardware specs it will likely demonstrate all the new functionality, much of it promised by the upgraded Bluetooth S Pen.

Which was not an option in the list of likely available configurations?

Sometimes I think it's just better to wait for official confirmation than to write speculation that contradicts itself :)
I don't buy phones in the ranges of a grand. Got to be a mug to spend that much on a phone.. I know it's not just The Galaxy Note9, but yeah it seems like this needs to be echoed till people see it as not right.

I don't know if it was intended, but I think Apple/Samsung kept releasing the latest phone back to back fast enough to peak to such prices, and obviously people kept buying it because people wanted the very latest latest phone, now they release phones barely with any major differences and expect people to spend that much. It's crazy in my opinion and we as consumers are enablers.

It's a bit like the graphic cards market! At least in the phone market you can choose a different brand, give another company a shot and create competition.
Some new images here. The white one shows the placement of all the front cameras and sensors really clearly.
