What color Galaxy Note 9 should you buy?

Depends on your region as much as your taste.

The Galaxy Note 9 is undoubtedly going to be one of the best phones of the year — it’s packed with every top-end spec under the sun, and the S Pen is better than ever with its new wireless functionality. You probably already know if you’re going to buy one or not, so the only thing left to figure out is what color to get it in.

Samsung showed off four colors at its Unpacked event last week: ocean blue, lavender purple, metallic copper, and midnight black. They all look great, but depending on where you live, you might not be able to get the color you want.

Galaxy Note 9 in Ocean Blue

The ocean blue Galaxy Note 9 seems to be Samsung’s favorite, given that it’s the one being displayed in all of the company’s recent ads, and who can blame them? It’s a deep blue finish with a contrasting yellow S Pen that gives the whole phone a unique, eye-catching look.

Who is it for?

As one of the two colors available in the States, you’ll be seeing a lot of ocean blue Note 9s floating around in the coming months. If you’re okay with that, it’s a great-looking finish — and it’ll be easily re-sellable when it comes time to upgrade again.

Galaxy Note 9 in Lavender Purple

Lavender is a lighter shade of purple than the lilac purple used on the Galaxy S9 and S9+, though it’s just as gorgeous as ever. It can get a bit lighter or darker depending on the way the light hits it, and the metal frame matches the finish. There are plenty of blue phones elsewhere, but you won’t find a purple phone many other places.

Who is it for?

If you live in the U.S. and the ocean blue Note 9 isn’t your thing, the lavender purple may be a better bet. It likely won’t be in as many hands as the ocean blue model, so you’ll stand out in a crowd, and the S Pen is color-matched to the phone.

Galaxy Note 9 in Copper

Stateside shoppers won’t be seeing much of the metallic copper Galaxy Note 9, since it isn’t coming to the U.S. For others, though, the copper finish is an interesting one. It’s not quite brown and not quite gold … I guess that’s why it’s called copper. ¯_(ツ)_/¯ It’s almost like a slightly lighter version of the mocha brown Huawei Mate 10 Pro.

Who is it for?

This one’s easy. If you live in the United States, this one isn’t for you — at least not at first, though Samsung is known to add more finishes to its selection a few months down the road. The metallic copper is a great alternative to the blue and purple finishes, especially if you want to rub it in the faces of those who can’t buy it.

Galaxy Note 9 in Black

These other, flashier colors are nice, but it’s hard to argue with a stealthy all-black finish. The midnight black Galaxy Note 9 looks just like every other black Samsung phone in recent years — the pitch black glass back and metal frame match the display perfectly to create an ultra-sleek look that would undoubtedly be one of the most popular finishes … if it were more widely available.

Who is it for?

Yep, that’s right. Even though you might think of the black finish as standard, it’s not going to be one of the two finishes in the U.S. and other regions. It’s a shame, because this is the perfect look for the no-nonsense shopper that wants the best of the best but doesn’t need to flaunt their phone.
