Galaxy Note 9 in white color officially launched by Samsung Taiwan

The reports about Samsung launching the Galaxy Note 9 in white color have turned out to be accurate. Samsung Taiwan has officially launched this new color option for the flagship today. It had confirmed four days ago that a white color option will be available soon for customers in the country.

The color option is apparently being called “First Snow White” to commemorate the first snowfall of the year for Taiwan. It’s a nice, clean white color with a white S Pen to match.

Samsung launches Galaxy Note 9 in white for customers in Taiwan

Samsung currently offers the Galaxy Note 9 in Lavender Purple, Metallic Copper, Midnight Black, Ocean Blue and Cloud Silver colors. The availability of these options varies by market. Nothing else is different about this device. It’s the same Galaxy Note 9 we all know and love with 128GB of storage. Samsung has merely applied a fresh coat of paint to the back. The company often launches new color options for its flagship smartphones to drive up sales. That’s precisely what it has done here.

Note fans will be well aware that this is the first Galaxy Note device to be offered in white since the Galaxy Note 5 which was released back in 2015. Furthermore, Samsung has only confirmed its launch for Taiwan so far. The company hasn’t confirmed or denied if it’s going to offer this color option in other markets. It may find customers for it in other parts of the world as well due to the upcoming holiday season.

Samsung Taiwan is positioning the Galaxy Note 9 in white as a must-have item for Christmas and the New Year. It unveiled the color option earlier today at the Galaxy Studio in the Xinyi business district of Taipei. The Galaxy Note 9 in First Snow White will be exclusively sold through Samsung’s retail channels in Taiwan starting early next month. NT$30,900 or $998 is what the company will be charging for it.

S7 edge blue coral is the best color ever, and Alpha’s scuba blue also

I’m glad that white is making a return but couldn’t they atleast match the sides of the display to match the phone instead of being black? It’s throwing me off.

What do you mean? Because the metal frame is also white, you wanted the bezels to be white? That would be very distracting

That will probably never happen. Companies are pushing bezel-less displays as a means to immerse the user in the display, and anything but black around the display would go against what they’re trying to do. And it’s a good thing for people like me, who want their AMOLED displays to have no logos or other distractions because they just look beautiful that way with dark images, while also letting us choose a non-black color for the rest of the phone. It’s the best of both worlds at the moment, and it’s the most middle-ground approach Samsung and other OEMs are… Read more »

Yeah right, nobody of you complained before the S8 for such thing. Biased Samsung fans. By now not that I expected any better…

I actually have always complained about it about ALL Android phone makers except Google, but even Google just had the Galaxy Nexus that truly looked beautiful with the AMOLED and no front logos. Apple has been able to keep the logo away from the front since the beginning, but they never had AMOLED so it didn’t matter. So all people like me could do was get the black variant before the S8, but now we can keep it black on the front and have a different color on the sides and back. And did you really expect people to complain… Read more »

Didn’t the blue S5 have black bezels around the screen?

I don’t like this color. S6 Edge was better in white.

Yeah because the whole thing was white and the colour option made sense. Now they skip doing separate colour options for front panels to decrease manufacturing costs of parts and they pass it as “we do it in order to give immersive experience”. Nobody complained in the past about the sides being not black in the past. You convince nobody. I’ll be honest though, Samsung isn’t the only OEM that is guilty of such thing.

Never really liked white but it does have the advantage of hiding fingerprints very well.
