Samsung accidentally leaks the image of Galaxy Note 9

Will the Galaxy Note 9 cost $1,000 like the Note 8

A few hours back, Samsung New Zealand accidentally posted an official Galaxy Note 9 introduction video on its YouTube channel, revealing a few key features of the upcoming flagship phablet. It also confirms that a 512GB version will be available, with support for up to 512GB microSD cards.

According to Dmitriy Ryabinin, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will be available in 128GB and 512GB storage variants in Russian Federation.

The video seems to confirm one of the color options for the new phone - blue with a yellow S Pen.

Excited still? Will there be any surprises come next Thursday? The 30-second video shows the Galaxy Note 9 along with the S Pen stylus.

NASA confirms delays in Boeing and SpaceX commercial crew flights
So, for the last seven years, the American space agency has been paying its Russian counterpart for crew transportation services. However, NASA indicated in April that it may "operationalize" the Boeing test flight and fly three, instead of two crew.

Samsung's Galaxy Note 9, and supposedly its Galaxy Watch are just a week away with its launch event dated Thursday August 9th. Samsung places emphasis on storage; the Note 9 could hold 1 TB of (expandable) storage. However, ahead of the official launch, much has already been leaked online about the next-generation Galaxy Note model. The one design change is a reworked fingerprint reader placement, which was panned previous year for being too hard to reach. Moreover, there's a dual-camera with a fingerprint sensor placed in the centre, beneath the cameras. However, Samsung will be offering a 512GB storage variant as well, which could perhaps come with 8GB of RAM.

Samsung generally moves pretty quickly with retail availability, and we anticipate seeing the Galaxy Note 9 on shelves within a couple of weeks, but definitely before Apple does its next phone release.

But the official launch is coming next week at Samsung's August 9 Unpacked event, so get your "which rumors were right" Bingo cards ready. If so, hopefully Note 9 buyers will get a discount; the PNY card costs $350.
