Approx SGD1600 roughly..... so about SGD1550 to SGD1650 somewhere this price range
Like the bird says.. 1550
Wow.... my guesstimation is pretty accurate...lol.....


1550 for 512gb? wo simi pre-order special?
You wish!

SGD1550 is for the 128GB internal memory 6GB RAM version

I bet the 512GB internal memory 8GB RAM will be approx SGD2k

Edit to add: the 512GB internal memory 8GB RAM is retailing at approx USD1700
Correction: 512GB internal memory 8GB RAM is retailing at approx SGD1700, not USD1700

128/6 as a base, 512/8 is a dream come true.
Not sure if the 512 GB internal memory 8GB RAM will be selling in Singapore.... most likely you have to get export set... then again, most of the time, these super spec phones are targeted at South Korea and China, so there could be compatibility concerns if want to use in Singapore.

Been waiting for this, but at 1550/1600, might really just go for a note 8. Redwhite mobile selling a new one for 880. And apart from the s pen, the rest seem not worth spending another 700..

It's official: the Samsung Galaxy Note9 has a 4,000mAh battery

https://www.hardwarezone.com.sg/tech...000mah-battery

Edit to add:

From article
".......The phone will be available on 24th August in four colors: Midnight Black, Metallic Copper, Ocean Blue, and Lavender Purple, although apparently only Ocean Blue and Midnight Black will be available in Singapore. Each color comes with a color-matched S Pen, except for Ocean Blue, which has a yellow S Pen....."

You have more internal storage, much higher capacity battery, better processor, better camera, slightly larger screen compared to the Note8

What else have I missed?

Well for me, internal storage not an issue cause sd card, larger battery is lovely but portable batt, processor over powered for my use, camera is fantastic, but still incremental. Not saying it's not a good phone, just thst it's not worth it to me to pay thst much more.

Should be typo.

Galaxy Note 9 pricing would start at $1,000 in the US for the 128GB version and $1,250 for the 512GB version (hot damn, that's a lot of storage), and it suddenly became a struggle to think about anything else.

You can buy a laptop at this absurd price!
Gonna skip the Note 9. For what is basically is a Samsung S9+ with just the S-Pen. S9 sales suffered because of the mismatch in price, the Note 9 will suffer the same fate.

Anyway, good luck Samsung.
