You saw the talk, read the specs and are ready to put down your £899 on a Note 9. Fabulous. The only question is: What colour Note 9 do you want? Here’s a quick rundown of all five colours Samsung has so far revealed, so you know which one to put in your basket…

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.

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.

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.

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.
