The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 was announced last week in New York, and following a number of third-party accessory announcements in the last couple of days, Caviar has just listed its special edition Galaxy Note 9 handset online. Caviar, for those of you who do not know, is a Russian luxury smartphone customization company, not exactly a smartphone manufacturer, but a smartphone-tweaking company, rather than anything else.
Caviar has listed the Galaxy Note 9 which has one kilogram of pure gold on the back, literally, and it’s called the Galaxy Note 9 Fine Gold Edition. Instead of Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5 protection, this model comes with a ton of gold, and it brings the weight of the Galaxy Note 9 to over one kilogram, this device weighs around 1.2 kilograms, as the weight of the regular Galaxy Note 9 is 201 grams. On the back of the Galaxy Note 9 Fine Gold Edition, you will notice that ‘Fine Gold’ is engraved, along with ‘999.9’ below it. On the bottom portion of the phone’s back, you will notice ‘Net WT 1,000g’ engraved, along with the company’s name. Interestingly enough, this phone’s 128GB storage variant is priced at 3,87 million rubles, which translates to $57,953. If you’d like to get a 256GB storage variant of the Galaxy Note 9 Fine Gold Edition, you’ll have to part with 3,89 million rubles ($58,260).
The Galaxy Note 9 Fine Gold Edition actually comes with the same spec sheet as a regular Galaxy Note 9 model, and as already mentioned in two storage variants. The phone’s front side is identical to the one on the original Galaxy Note 9. The device, as most of you know already, features a 6.4-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED display, comes with IP68 certification, and a set of stereo speakers. A 4,000mAh non-removable battery is a part of the package as well, as are two 12-megapixel cameras which are located on the back of the phone.
