Report: Galaxy Note 9 price to be the same as the Galaxy Note 8’s in Korea

The Galaxy Note 9 may end up being sold at exactly the same price as the Galaxy Note 8, at least for the base variant that offers 128GB of storage. We have heard rumors supporting this possibility before, and there were also reports that said the Note 9 would command a solid premium in Europe. But the latest report out of Korea suggests that the Note 9 will indeed be priced the same as its predecessor.

Galaxy Note 9 price looks more and more likely to match the Note 8's

The report comes from ETNews, which has a pretty solid track record when it comes to having information about Samsung device launches in the company's home country. The Galaxy Note 9's price will start at 1,094,500 won (roughly $975) for the base model, which will have 128GB of storage compared to the 64GB of storage available on the base Note 8 model. The 512GB is costlier, naturally. But at 1,353,000 won (roughly $1,200), the difference isn't all that high compared to the 256GB Galaxy Note 8. The pricing for Indonesia, based on some pre-order posters, is also expected to match that of last year's Note 8.

And, well, this also matches with Samsung's own reveal that it will be offering the Galaxy Note 9 at a reasonable price. With flagship sales down in general and the Galaxy S9 feeling the heat, the Note 9 would have a hard time attracting consumers if it costs noticeably more than the Galaxy Note 8, which was already quite highly priced in most markets last year. Of course, some countries may still end up paying quite a premium, but there certainly is hope that Samsung isn't going to be asking too much in return for all the new stuff its upcoming Note flagship will offer.
