Remember those rumors that Samsung would be working to keep costs of its new flagships at reasonable levels? Yeah, no such luck, bucko. The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 starts at $999.95. That will get you the base-level model, with an admittedly generous 128GB of storage and 6GB of RAM.
The next SKU up will really make the eyeballs pop out of your head like a Tex Avery cartoon, however. At launch, the company’s offering up two models — the premium version gets you 8GB of RAM and 512GB of storage, which, as the company notes, is “1TB ready,” via expandable storage.
