With only a couple of days left until Samsung's Unpacked event kicks off, the rumor mill has been churning out a plethora of information regarding the tech giant's next flagship. The unannounced handset is expected to feature a repositioned fingerprint sensor on the rear - which has apparently been redesigned itself as well. Moreover, an accidentally uploaded video by Samsung New Zealand indicated that the phone will be "1 terabyte ready".

Now, in what won't come as a surprise to many, the flagship's pricing details in the UK have leaked online. According to Roland Quandt, the 128GB variant will cost £899 ($1,165), while the 512GB model will set you back by £1,099 ($1,425).

This newly revealed information pretty much holds in line with previous rumors regarding pricing that suggested a starting price of $1,228 for the basic tier, while a top-of-the-line configuration was expected to cost $1,462. If this new report is believed to be true, this means that the Note9 will certainly continue the increasing price trend for Samsung's flagships. In contrast, the base model of the Note8 cost $950, although it should be noted that only 64GB of storage was offered in that variant. Interestingly, previous leaks have also indicated that the S Pen will not actually be bundled with the Note9, which means that it might end up costing you even more than the aforementioned pricing.

The actual facts regarding the phone will only be confirmed at Samsung's Unpacked event in a couple of days time, so it is advised to take all these rumors with a pinch of salt. In any case, reservations for the unannounced handset are open; you can sign up right now and expect delivery by August 24.
