The Galaxy Note 9 is a bonafide flagship smartphone with its Snapdragon 845 processor and up to 8GB of RAM. Yes, it has an 8GB RAM variant which is also the first Galaxy Note handset to ship with 512GB of internal storage. Samsung is going to charge 8,999 yuan for the 8GB + 512GB Galaxy Note 9 variant which is around $1,295.

Samsung is going to release the Galaxy Note 9 in the United States and other markets on August 24. It will then gradually release the handset in additional markets after that. It's taking pre-orders for the Galaxy Note 9 in China currently and will release the handset on August 31.
