South Korea Retailer Accidentally Outs Some Minor Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Details

By Tom Pritchard on at

When it comes to phone leaks there are only two things you need to remember. Firstly, leaks will happen and there won't be that many surprises by the time launch rolls around. Secondly, at least one retailer will fuck up and post information before it's supposed to. That just happened with South Korean retailer KT Plaza Shop, who posted some details about pre-ordering the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 before promptly deleting it.

But as is the way with the internet, someone saw it and took some screenshots. In this case those screenshots ended up on Twitter:

Most people can't read or understand Korean, so let me reveal some details. First is that there are apparently three variants of the Note 9, with 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB of storage. 512GB is a lot but if recent reports are to be believed it's going to be limited to China and Korea, so don't expect to get your hands on it here. Some have also noted that the corners are a lot rounder than leaked renders show, leading some to speculate that the images in question are placeholders of older phones like the Note 8.

Unfortunately there's not much else in those listings. Google translate tells me that all the words don't have any useful information beyond each phone's model number and storage size. There's no pricing to speak of either, which is particularly annoying. Many people would like to find out just how expensive this phone is. The second image, however, does say that customers who pre-order the Note 9 will receive a gift of some kind. The image below suggests it'll be a DeX dock, though why they have the first and second generations side by side isn't clear. That's not unusual for Samsung, though we'll have top wait and see what deals it announces on launch day.

Currently the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is rumoured to be announced on 9th August, and it's likely that Samsung will be confirming that date very soon. [@osctws via Slashgear]
