Korean technology giant Samsung has already put out multiple hints regarding the official unveiling of its upcoming flagship — Samsung Galaxy Note 9. The premium phablet is expected to be launched at the Samsung Unpacked event planned for August 9 in New York. And now, latest leaks have emerged regarding the device's pricing at launch.

Polish tech website spidersweb cites a source working at Samsung who was allegedly present at a pre-briefing concerning the Note 9 launch held recently. The report states that the source claims the base variant of the Galaxy Note 9, with 6GB RAM and 128GB inbuilt storage, will launch with a price tag of 4,299 Polish zloty (Rs 79,000 or $1,160 approx).

The website also claims that a local Samsung store also corroborated the price tag. The reported figures are close enough to the launch price of last year's 128GB Galaxy Note 8. The 6gb/128GB was first introduced at a price point of Rs 75,000, while the 64GB version cost Rs 67,500 during launch.

Rumoured Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Specifications

As per earlier reports and leaks, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will have a design similar to the Note 8 and come with a 6.4-inch SuperAMOLED display. The device will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Soc or an Exynos 9810, depending on the region, and come equipped with 6GB or 8GB of RAM, up to 512GB of inbuilt storage and a 4,000mAh battery. There have also been reports that the Note 9 may come with a triple camera setup on the back, like the one found in the Huawei P20 Pro. It will also reportedly have a hardware camera button.

Going by Samsung's teaser posts and several leaks, one of the major innovations of the Note 9 is expected to come with a 'reimagined S Pen' or stylus. The S Pen will reportedly come with Bluetooth functionalities, enabling users to use it as a remote to control music playback or as an external shutter button to take pictures through the smartphone's cameras.

Recent reports suggest the Note 9 will retain the 3.5mm headphone jack.
