Samsung Galaxy Note 9 tipped to arrive in five resplendent shades

A recent leak has suggested that we’ll see five different colours for the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, including blue, copper, silver, violet and black. 

With the handset announcement rumoured to be coming next month, it’s only natural that we might start to see more leaks about minor features of the device.

There’s nothing too surprising about the colours revealed in Hi-Tech.Mail’s leak. After all, the Galaxy Note 8 was available in black, gold, grey, and blue. It seems gold wasn’t good enough to make the cut this year, so it’s been replaced with violet and copper.

Additionally the grey colour from last year appears to have been changed into a more vivid silver.

There’s no guarantee that the final handset will get all these colours, and some may very well be regional exclusives, but the quality of the renders has us fairly confident that this leak is legitimate.

An iterative year

It says a lot that we’re discussing the phone’s colours rather than any interesting features or spec improvements, but that’s the kind of model the Note 9 is expected to be.

Most rumours at this point are suggesting that the phone will be a very iterative upgrade over the Note 8, with some of the design changes of the Galaxy S9 rolled in.

That means a Snapdragon 845, it means a fingerprint scanner underneath the camera, and potentially a boost in the maximum storage capacity of the device.

However the device’s signature S Pen has been rumoured to be getting a number of improvements, which is good news when this is such a major draw for the device.

No doubt this won’t be the last leak we see for the upcoming handset as we move towards an official announcement.
