Samsung's latest monolith of a phablet has officially been unveiled, and we've now got the lowdown on what makes the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 special. For instance, we know it features a record-breaking display, and is quite capable of replacing the average user's home PC.
The Note 9 has been announced in three different colours – Ocean Blue, Metallic Copper and Midnight Black – as well as two configurations, one with 128GB of onboard storage for $1,499, and the other with an unprecedented 512GB of storage for $1,799.
With prices like this, it seems that Samsung is going for the throat of the iPhone X, but is this work-meets-play powerhouse enough to sway Apple die-hards? And does this generation of the Note offer enough promise for those upgrading from the Galaxy Note 8?
If you'd prefer to pick up the handset outright, there's a limited pre-order offer on at the moment that nets you the bigger 512GB configuration for the price of the 128GB phone. So head on over to Harvey Norman and check out the 512GB Samsung Galaxy Note 9 for $1,499 in Ocean Blue, Metallic Copper or Midnight Black.

The best Samsung Galaxy Note 9 plans
Given the $1,499 starting price of this monolithic handset, there's a good chance you'll want to soften that blow with a 24-month contract. Although the plans are still fairly steep, some come with some excellent bonus offers and other neat ways to reduce the wallet-damage.
It's worth noting that, for pre-orders, every carrier is offering the 512GB model at the same price as the 128GB model, so there's literally no advantage in getting the lower capacity configuration.
