Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Cloud Silver Variant Hands-On Images Surface Ahead of Launch

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 may soon launch in an interesting 'Cloud Silver' color option. The color may be called Arctic Silver as well


The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 could soon launch in ‘Cloud Silver’ color. The premium flagship Samsung Android smartphone in the interesting but fairly predictable color option has surfaced online.

Samsung’s current flagship smartphone that has allowed the company to regain its market dominance in the Indian premium smartphone market, has leaked online. Although the smartphone is currently available in four colors, the company could be readying yet another variant that sports the rather industrial ‘Cloud Silver’ color treatment. Interestingly, several smartphone enthusiasts insist the color is essential ‘Arctic Silver’. Moreover, Samsung has been dipping its premium flagship smartphones in the color. In fact, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus were available in the Arctic Silver color options. These smartphones launched last year.

It is quite likely that Samsung may soon launch the Galaxy Note 9 in the new Cloud Silver color option in the U.S. The flagship high-end smartphone is currently available in four colors – Midnight Black, Ocean Blue, Metallic Copper, and Lavender Purple. Given how Samsung distributes its smartphones, the Galaxy Note 9 in the new color option may arrive in other regions around the world as well.

New and surprisingly detailed images of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Cloud Silver variant surfaced online recently. Popular digital blogger @IceUniverse reportedly uploaded large images of the new color variant of the premium Android smartphone on Chinese micro-blogging website Weibo. Although these are supposed to “spy photos,” they are surprisingly detailed. The blogger has been kind enough to offer a glimpse of the Galaxy Note 9 Cloud Silver variant from all sides.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Cloud Silver variant also includes the feature-packed S-Pen in the same color option. The spy photos contain a fresh and supposedly retail unit of the premium Android smartphone. The blogger retained the stickers that are usually stuck on any handset. These stickers lend superficial protection and also offer some information about the smartphone and its most notable features.

The images strongly indicate Samsung is in final stages of readying the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Cloud Silver variant for final sale and shipment. The company hasn’t yet officially acknowledged the existence of this color, and hence it is not clear if or when this variant will start shipping. Moreover, Samsung may just effect a global launch of the variant, instead of a staggered one.
