Most Galaxy Note 9 pre-order customers have opted for 512GB storage

Samsung is only offering two storage variants of the Galaxy Note 9. The base model ships with 128GB of storage while customers who want more can purchase the 512GB model. It appears that the latter has been more appealing to pre-order customers. More than half of the Galaxy Note 9 pre-order customers have reportedly picked the 512GB model in Samsung’s home country of South Korea.

512GB Galaxy Note 9

Samsung’s Galaxy Note series has always been aimed at professionals who want to get work done on the move. The Galaxy Note 9 stays true to that ethos and offers features like the 4,000mAh battery and 512GB storage option.

Users won’t be short on storage since the device can also support microSD cards of up to 512GB. This means that with a 512GB microSD card in place, Galaxy Note 9 owners can have a terabyte of storage in their pocket. That’s what seems to be appealing Galaxy Note 9 pre-order customers in South Korea.

According to local reports, more than half of the pre-order customers have picked the 512GB model over the base 128GB model despite its relatively high price of 1.35 million won or ~$1,200. The blue color is said to be the most popular among customers.

It’s unclear which model customers are preferring in other markets across the globe but it can reasonably be assumed that there’s significant interest in the latter. The Galaxy Note faithful have been excited by the arrival of the new flagship because of its biggest selling features which include the battery, higher internal storage and new Bluetooth-equipped S Pen.

Samsung has been taking pre-orders for the Galaxy Note 9 since last week. It will begin shipping the handset to customers in the coming days. The official Galaxy Note 9 release date is August 24. The company will then start shipping the handset in other countries across the globe as well in the weeks to come.

512GB version for me! The extra 2GB of Ram is an added advantage. I will still use my old 256GB Samsung Memory card. My downloaded movies would be on the internal memory. Even if the internal memory corrupts, I could always redownload. My documents, pics and scarce data can always rest on my Micro SD.

Where are all the “128GB is overkill” people?

Yep. Pre-ordered on the 9th and opt’d for the 512GB version. Mainly so I don’t have to use an sdcard unless I really want to do so and 2GB more of ram doesn’t hurt either. 😉

I prefer SDCard. Because you can pull it out. But when your internal memoery will break, then you lost all your data.

I see the logic, but I have actually had several SD cards fail on me (Lexar & Sandisk) but never any internal memory so the internal memory would actually be more secure (plus it would be encrypted)
