More details on the Galaxy Note 9 have tricked out ahead of Samsung's big event later this week.

A new report from Winfuture.de includes some alleged pricing info for the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 along with some promotional images. First up, it's said that the 6GB/128GB Galaxy Note 9 price will £899 ($1,164 USD) while the 8GB/512GB model will cost £1,099 ($1,423 USD).

The Galaxy Note 9's dual rear cameras are said to be similar to those on the Galaxy S9+, with one 12MP wide angle lens offering variable aperture between f/1.5 and f/2.4 and the other 12MP sensor offering a 2x optical zoom. Samsung has reportedly made the Note 9's camera more intelligent, with the phone detecting what you're pointing the camera at and optimizing color settings as well as detecting blinks and blurs so that you can reshoot if necessary.
