Caviar has named its newest creation the Galaxy Note 9 Fine Gold Edition and it will leave a hole in your pocket. Not only does the phone have 1kg of pure gold instead of glass on its back, it also costs a fortune. Caviar has slapped a price tag of 3.87 million Rubles on this. That is almost $58,000 or €51,000. That price is for the 128GB version. Caviar says a 256GB version is available for 3.89 million Rubles (~$58,155/~€51,100) but the Galaxy Note9 only comes in 128GB and 512GB models, so we believe that is an error on their part.
Apart from the gold on the back, the internals of the phone remains the same as the regular one sold by Samsung. You get a 6.4” Super AMOLED display with a 1440 x 2560 resolution, an Exynos 9810 processor, and 6GB of RAM.
There are dual 12MP cameras on the rear with one having a variable aperture and the other having 2x optical zoom. The front camera is an 8MP sensor and there is Iris Scanning and face recognition. There are stereo speakers, a Bluetooth S-Pen and support for DeX mode via a USB-C to HDMI cable. It also packs a 4000mAh battery and runs Android 8.1 Oreo.
If you are interested in getting your hands on a unit, you can head to Caviar’s page and pre-order one for yourself.
