Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Price Rumor Could Spell The End For Note Series

Smartphone fans can thank the iPhone X for ushering in an era of insanely high-priced flagship smartphones. While Apple has certainly sold a lot of iPhone X models, Cupertino wasn't exactly happy with the sales numbers and has been looking for ways to slash costs and increase sales. Other smartphone makers seem to have missed that pricing issue and the fact that most smartphone buyers have opted to keep their devices or buy cheaper models as evidenced by smartphone market stagnation. Rumors recently claim that if the coming Galaxy Note 9 isn’t well received by smartphone buyers it could be the end of the line for the Note family.

A new rumor has now surfaced that claims Samsung is targeting a very high price for the Note 9 -- a price so high that many think if this rumor is true Samsung may have just put the final nail in the Note 9 coffin. This rumor comes from Roland Quandt, a person with a very good record when it comes to predicting things in the smartphone world. According to Quandt, when the Galaxy Note 9 hits Europe it will sell for €1050 for the starter 128GB flavor. That would work out to about $1,230 here in the U.S. at current exchange rates.

Buyers who wanted the larger 512GB storage version would have to shell out €1250 or about $1,460. When the not exactly record-busting Galaxy Note 8 launched last year in Europe it started at less than €900 for a 64GB version. The Note 9 family is expected to launch in the States at less than straight European conversion prices.

Rumors suggest that U.S. pricing will be $999 for the 128GB version and $1,199 for the 512GB version. The rub for Samsung is that Apple is widely expected to cut prices on its iPhones when they launch this year meaning the Note 9 is likely going to be substantially more expensive. Leaks have shown a device that looks rather bland for the price Samsung is tipped to be charging.
