    Any word on whether the note 9 will be available in black in the US? I find it unbelievable that you can't get it here. Even if i buy it another way and have it shipped here, it will not have a warranty, and given that i just sent my wife's note 8 in for warranty repair, that's not an option. I need a new phone, but for $1000, I'm not going to settle for less than what i want

    I've only owned black phones for last 10-15 years with the exception of a white note 4. I to almost didn't buy the note 9. Wanted to wait for the us black version. But I broke down and bought the ocean blue and decided I really like it. Although my black case covers it up and you wouldn't know it was blue beside a very little showing through where the camera is.

    I have communicated with Samsung via live chat on their website three times, asking directly if they intend to release a black note 9 to the US (I need a CDMA compatible phone as a Verizon customer). The first two times their rep said without equivocation they were going to do so but had no date. The last time I asked the rep said there were no such plans......

    I can't believe Sammie decided to not release a black note in the US, and for that matter in each and every market.

    I love Samsung products, but the marketing games they play are not cool, especially when buying a $1000.00+ phone

    I am hoping they release a black note at Thanksgiving.........

    How would chat reps have any idea what Samsung's marketing plans are?

    I also was disappointed in not being able to get the black version but I ended up loving the blue yellow combo. I'm not a huge blue fan but this particular blue is bad @##

    I think it's funny how so many of us were disappointed in not having black, now we all seem to love our blues. I wasn't happy when I found out no black. I always use a case, but I was going to get a black dbrand skin for the areas not covered by a case. Now, I'm really enjoying the blue. I have a UAG Plasma case in ash. It's perfect for me. I'm loving the shade of blue through the case in certain light, but also looks black in darker light.

    I got over the color thing pretty quick. Black would have been very nice. However, it's a leased phone. If I was buying a car, it would be a a different story.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but I think I read that the silver will only be available at bestbuy and samsung.com while black will be available with all major carriers along with Samsung.com and bestbuy. I might have misread tho.

    If it's still in mint condition, then depending on when and where you got it, you might be able to exchange it and pay a restocking fee. If not, you could sell it on eBay or Swappa and buy a new one. Or you could put a case on it and conceal the color. Or ignore it.

    I don't use a case, but even so I don't see the back of my phone when I use it. It was different a few years ago when a phone's color also appeared on the large bezels on the front.

    That's probably correct. The article was kind of confusing.

    Have had black phones for years. I for one am glad they forced me out of my comfort zone. The blue and yellow is amazing.
