The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is finally official, having just been announced at the galaxy Unpacked Event in New York. If you were watching the livestream, or read our coverage, and thought "hey this phone looks great!" you're probably wondering how you can get your hands on it. The good news is I have the information you seek.
According to Samsung the phone is available to pre-order right now, respectively costing £899 and £1,099 for the 128GB and 512GB models. That's ready for a 24th August release date, so there's not going to be very much waiting around involved. Colourwise, the UK will be getting the black, purple, and blue variants, but not brown. If you want the brown one you're going to have to find one from a reseller, or get it abroad.
A bunch of networks have confirmed they will be carrying the phone, as you might imagine, including:
EE, who will have the Black and Blue models, and are offering previous Galaxy owners to trade in their old phone and get the Note 9 at no extra cost. But that's only for the 128GB model on a £68 a month contract, which comes with 60GB of data and just about everything. Check out EE's deals here.
Sky Mobile will also have the Note 9, and has promised both it and the Tab S4 will come with four times more data without costing you a penny. Tat's alongside all Sky's usual perks like data rollover and the like. Prices start at £42 a month on a Swap24 Plan, with no upfront cost. Sky's got all three colours too, which is nice.
Vodafone similarly has the phone up for pre-order already, with prices starting at £63 a month and £79 upfront. That's on the Red Extra 20GB plan. It's only available in Blue, from the looks of things.
Samsung also has the phones up for pre-order on its own site, if you want to pay for the whole thing upfront. No surprises with the price, but you can get up to £300 off if you trade in an old Galaxy smartphone.
That's all we have at the moment, but no doubt the other big networks and retailers will be announcing their deals over the next day or two. So keep your eyes open and don't necessarily pre-order the first thing you see.
