Earlier this month, the different color variants of the Samsung Galaxy Note9 were revealed by the S Pen model codes spotted online. One of the codes (PN960BVEGWW) suggested the next-generation Samsung phablet could come in a purple model, among others, though there was no visible evidence of that variant. Thankfully, a new report from NieuweMobiel.NL claims to show just that.
The report reveals a leaked render supposedly belonging to the Lilac Purple Galaxy Note9. It's worth pointing out that this color variant isn't new to the Galaxy lineup; earlier this year Samsung launched the Lilac Purple Galaxy S9/S9+ model.
Arguably, that variant of Samsung's 2018 flagship device saw a positive reception by consumers, so it makes sense for the South Korean tech giant to offer the same color for its upcoming device.
In terms of the design, the Galaxy Note9 does not differ that much from the Galaxy Note8, except for the horizontal orientation of the dual rear camera and the placement of the fingerprint sensor below the camera module.
Besides Lilac Purple, the Galaxy Note9 is also expected to come in Black, Gray, Blue, and Brown based on the same set of the leaked S Pen model codes. However, it remains to be seen whether these are the actual color variants of the Galaxy Note9 that Samsung will introduce on August 9 at its Unpacked event in New York City.
Additionally, the date on the home screen of the render seems to corroborate the expected availability date of the device on August 24 along with the rumored Galaxy Watch. More official details are likely to follow earlier next month.
