Samsung kicks off Galaxy Note 9 pre-bookings in India, 128GB model to cost ₹67,900 ($985)
Samsung is set to launch the Galaxy Note 9 in India in the coming weeks, and the South Korean manufacturer has kicked off pre-bookings for the device in the country. Like the Galaxy S9 — which debuted at the same price point as the Galaxy S8 — the Note 9 is set to retail for ₹67,900 ($985) — the same price as the Note 8. The key difference is that the Note 9 offers 128GB of storage as standard, and Samsung is also rolling out a 512GB model, which will be available for ₹84,900 ($1,230).
That's a lot of money to spend on a phone, even one as impressive as the Note 9. To incentivize the purchase, Samsung is rolling out a range of offers for those interested in picking up its latest phone. First up is a ₹6,000 cashback for HDFC credit and debit card holders; and if you don't have a card from the bank, you'll be able to avail the same cashback by purchasing the Note 9 from Paytm Mall at retail outlets. Those buying the Note 9 will also be able to pick up the Gear Sport for just ₹4,999 ($70), a massive ₹18,000 discount.

There's also no-cost EMI schemes from leading banks as well as lenders like Bajaj Finance and Capital First, and the Note 9 will be available in three color options at launch: Ocean Blue (with a yellow S Pen), Midnight Black, and Metallic Copper.
Samsung didn't specify a date for the Note 9 launch in India, but if the Galaxy S9's pre-order window is any indication, the Note 9 should make its way to India in under two weeks.
