Samsung’s latest monolith of a phablet has officially been unveiled, and we’ve now got the lowdown on what makes the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 special.
The Note 9 has been announced in two different colours – Ocean Blue and Midnight Black – as well as two configurations, one with 128GB of onboard storage for $1,499, and the other with an unprecedented 512GB of storage for $1,799.
With prices like this, it seems that Samsung is going for the throat of the iPhone X, but is this work-meets-play powerhouse enough to sway Apple die-hards? And does this generation of the Note offer enough promise for those upgrading from the Galaxy Note 8?

The best Samsung Galaxy Note 9 plans
Given the $1,499 starting price of this monolithic handset, there’s a good chance you’ll want to soften that blow with a 24-month contract. Although the plans are still fairly steep, some come with some excellent bonus offers and other neat ways to reduce the wallet-damage.
It’s worth noting that, for pre-orders, every carrier is offering the 512GB model at the same price as the 128GB model, so there’s literally no advantage in getting the lower capacity configuration.
