So I've been happily using my Galaxy Note 4 for a few years now without a problem, and even though the battery has seen better days (and could easily be fixed with a replacement battery) I'm currently in budget mode and want to treat myself to a new phone.

I know nothing definitive has been released yet, but I am trying to determine how much I should be setting aside each month to cover the cost of the phone.

I GUESTIMATED the phone would be near NZ$1900? Is this too high or too low? How much did the Note 8 sell for?

 

Secondly, based on the sites I've been reading, August/September release?

Any other confirmed info about it? Cause if it is August/September, that isn't actually that far away and so I am surprised more info isn't out there about it!

I paid $1599 for the Note 8 when it was released, September 22.  From what I've seen the price for the S9/S9+ was substantially the same as for the S8/S8+, so would expect the Note 9 to be more or less the same as the Note 8, unless there are major new features being introduced.

s8 and s9 were not the same prices, it was 100 more this time around.

 

I expect to see the note 9 at around 1800 - 1950 due to the increase size and battery.  Also depends where the finger print scanner ended up.

Huh, go figure.  I hadn't picked up on that.  Just looked at Spark and they want $1599 for the S9+, same as what I paid for the Note 8 6 months ago.  I suppose they will be asking for at least $1699 for the Note 9, then, probably more as tripp suggests.

 

Glad I got my Note 8 last year then... :)

Yes the notes are a lot nicer than the s range.  I do like the square look of the notes better

If I was looking at the N9, I'd personally set aside $2k for the phone and whole bunch of accessories I'd get for it.

I am liking my note, but I don't *love* it. I am not sure if it's iteratie, if this version I will bother, at least not initially. I may change my mind, but other than the 960fps camera which might be handy for my sports, nothing else is really grabbing me. Rumors are it will have a bigger battery but the chances are almost zero it will have a screen based scanner or that the first iteration will be any good. 

 

I am not sure exactly how much faster the S9 is over the S8, but given the trend to pretty much cram the S series technology into the 8's larger form factor I am not convinced the Note will be much more than an S9+ with a pen.
