Note 9 Colours: Midnight Black

If you like to keep things simple, black is the shade for you. It’s stylish, professional and goes with pretty much anything – including any case you decide to wrap it in. On the downside, it’s a bit on the dull side and certainly won’t make your new expensive purchase standout from the millions of other black phones out there.

Note 9 Colours: Lavender Purple

Lilac won plenty of plaudits when the S9 adopted the colour earlier this year, so it’s no surprise that a similar soft shade is back again for the Note 9. It looks slightly pinker in the early shots, but it’s sure to receive envious glances wherever you go.

Note 9 Colours: Ocean Blue

On the surface, blue is also a pretty common colour for smartphones, but the blue Note 9 is certainly eye-catching. For starters, it’s a bright, electric blue rather than an ‘I can’t believe it’s not black’ navy. For seconds, that gold trim – with matching S-Pen handle – really does look very snazzy indeed.

Note 9 Colours: Metallic Copper

In the absence of a gaudy gold model this year, copper is as close as you’re going to it. Yes, it’s not hugely shiny, and actually looks brown in certain lights, but it does have a degree of elegance to it.
