New Delhi: Samsung India on Friday opened pre-booking for its pen-focused flagship Galaxy Note 9, which will be available in 128 GB and 512 GB variants for Rs 67,900 and Rs 84,900, respectively.

India launch of the smartphone is likely to be before August 24. Prospective buyers who pre-book the device will get a chance to own a Samsung Gear Sport smartwatch for Rs 4,999, which originally costs Rs 22,990, the company said in a statement. All variants of the device will be available across retail and online stores, the company added.

The smartphone will also be available on Flipkart in India, for which the pre-orders will begin during its Freedom Day sale, a latest teaser on the e-commerce site suggested on Friday. The South Korean giant announced that the smartphone will be available globally from August 24 and for the India market it will be manufactured in Noida.

The 6.4-inch Note 9 comes in four colours and two variants — 6 GB RAM and 128 GB in-built internal memory (expandable up to 512GB) and 8 GB RAM with 512 GB ROM expandable up to 1 TB.

The device has 12 MP + 12 MP dual camera system with dual OIS at the rear with two-times more powerful optical zoom and an 8 MP front shooter.
