Multiple reports have suggested that the Galaxy Note 9 colors will include black, blue, gray and lavender. The company is also expected to introduce a new shade of gold for the handset but that may not be the case if a fresh report is to be believed. The model codes for the new S Pen that will accompany the Galaxy Note 9 have surfaced online and they suggest that the handset may not be available in gold, at least not initially.
Galaxy Note 9 colors
We already know that the S Pen of a Galaxy Note handset is always of the same color as the handset which is why this report extrapolates the Galaxy Note 9 color options from the S Pen model codes.
The new S Pen for the Galaxy Note 9 has model code EJ-PN960. The list of model codes also mentions the colors that the S Pen will be available in:
1. EJ-PN960BBEGWW: Black
2. EJ-PN960BJEGWW: Gray
3. EJ-PN960BVEGWW: Violet / Purple
4. EJ-PN960BLEGWW: Blue
5. EJ-PN960BAEGWW: Brown
The list doesn’t mention a gold color option for the Galaxy Note 9 even though the first teaser that Samsung has released hints at the possibility that its new flagship might be offered in a shade of gold. Perhaps the company might introduce one down the line.
We have previously reported that the Galaxy Note 9 may be launched with a new brown color option. Samsung has previously offered a similar shade for the Galaxy Note 2.
Galaxy Note 9 colors aside, the new S Pen itself is expected to be improved significantly. It may get Bluetooth support which will allow the stylus to double as a Bluetooth controller for the camera shutter and music playback. Some reports have suggested that it may even function as a Bluetooth speaker but there’s not much evidence to support that theory just yet.
Samsung is going to unveil the Galaxy Note 9 on August 9 at a special event in New York City.
