Samsung Galaxy Note 9 pre-orders surprisingly reveal 512GB variant as the top seller

Samsung’s Galaxy Note series has always been one to go a bit over the top, and the Note 9 certainly fits the bill there. With a 512GB storage tier in tow, it’s possible to carry a full terabyte in your pocket. Of course, that commands a high price, but apparently, customers are absolutely willing to pay it…

Pre-order data in Samsung’s home country of Korea reveals that, at least in that region, the 512GB variant of the Galaxy Note 9 is outselling the standard 128GB model. Of course, that higher tier also arrives with 8GB of RAM instead of 6GB, but the high price point of 1.35 million won ($1,249 USD) is something many expected to keep sales of that model to a minimum.

According to The Investor, though, the higher tier is making up more than half of pre-orders in Korea ahead of the August 24th launch. Carrier sources further mentioned that the “Ocean Blue” color is the top seller as well with its yellow S-Pen.
