Galaxy Note 9 UPDATE: This is how much Samsung's new flagship could cost on release date
Samsung is preparing to lift the lid on the Galaxy Note 9 – their next flagship smartphone.
On Thursday the South Korean tech giant is holding an Unpacked event in Brooklyn, New York where the Galaxy Note 9 is expected to be revealed.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has been the subject of much rumour and speculation with it expected to have a similar design to its predecessor – the Note 8.
Leaks have also suggested that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will launch with exclusive access to the highly anticipated Android version of Fortnite.
The Note 9 is rumoured to have a huge 4,000mAh battery, 6.4-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED display and 6GB of RAM.
One of the few aspects about the Note 9 that was shrouded in mystery until now was the price – but that could all have changed today.
Reliable tech leaker Roland Quandt has revealed what he claims is the price of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9.
And fans who were hoping for a price drop from the Note 8, which launched at £869 in the UK, could be set to be disappointment.
Quandt claims that prices for the Note 9 will start at £899 in the UK and rise past the £1,000 marker.
The tech leaker tweeted today to claim that the 128GB version of the Note 9 will be priced at £899 for an unlocked handset.
But he said the unlocked version of the 512GB model will be priced at £1,099 in the UK.
Quandt also posted on Twitter a link to a WinFuture article which showcased a number of new alleged marketing images for the Note 9.
One alleged marketing image posted in the article could hint that the Note 9 will see a shake-up of the DeX experience.
DeX lets Samsung users connect their handset to a monitor, keyboard and mouse to get a “desktop experience powered by your phone”.
It was introduced with the Note 8, with the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ going on to also support it.
However, until now DeX needed a DeX Pad or DeX Station to work.
But one alleged Note 9 marketing image promises the ability to “transform your phone into a PC-like experience with a single cable”.
This seems to back-up previous rumours that Samsung Galaxy Note 9 users will be able to connect to DeX simply with a USB-C cable.
Images Quandt published also showed the Note 9 in its four alleged colour schemes – Midnight Black, Metallic Copper, Ocean Blue and Lilac Purple.
