Samsung Electronics Co. plans to start sales of a silver-coloured Galaxy Note 9 as early as this week, industry sources said on Tuesday, apparently to promote the device amid the launch of new iPhones and other rival products.

The new colour adds to the existing portfolio of blue, black, purple and copper variants. The silver edition will also be released in the US, Yonhap news agency reported.

Samsung has not yet announced the exact date for release in South Korea.

Industry watchers said the new version seems to be aimed at competing with LG Electronics Inc.’s V40 ThinQ, which will be introduced this week, along with Apple Inc.’s latest iPhone models.

In South Korea, Samsung also launched a special programme in which the company purchases used Galaxy products from buyers of the Galaxy Note 9.

Less and less Apple users are sticking with iPhones when it comes to replacement and are switching to Android phones, especially Samsung, a new report by BankMyCell has said.

The iPhone trade-in site has been collecting data on the new device people have during the valuation and trade-in of their old iPhone. It essentially lets users sell their used phone and upgrade to a new one.

BankMyCell found that 18.1 per cent of iPhone users were trading in their device for a Samsung device in June, the highest level since it’s been in the study, according to a CNET report on Thursday.

People who chose Samsung repeatedly were in bigger numbers.
