Samsung has started accepting pre-orders for the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus both on their website and via retailers. The devices were initially introduced last Sunday during MWC 2018.
If you’re pre-ordering from Samsung themselves, the Galaxy S9 will cost you $719.99. The S9 Plus, on the other hand, will run you $839.99. If you trade-in a qualifying phone, the company will give you up to $350 off your purchase. This offer is only eligible as long as you buy directly from Samsung, meaning you can’t get this from, say, a carrier who you pre-order from.
That being said, all four major US carriers have the device up for sale today. At AT&T, you can get the S9 for $790.20, or $26.34/month for 30 months. For the S9 Plus, you’ll pay $915, or $30.50/month for 30 months. Verizon further ups the cost for the S9 to $800 ($33.33/month for 24 months) and the S9 Plus to $930 ($39.74/month for 24 months). Fortunately, for T-Mobile customers, the carrier will charge the same thing Samsung does, or $30/month for 24 months for either phone plus a $120 down payment on the S9 Plus. Finally, Sprint will charge $33/month for 24 months for the S9 while the S9 Plus will cost $38/month for 24 months. In total, the devices from the yellow carrier will cost $792 and $913.
It’s also worth noting Best Buy has the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus up for pre-order as well for $719.99 and $839.99, respectively. And if you pre-order today, you can get $100 off which isn’t too shabby.
The Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus come with 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch Infinity Displays, Snapdragon 845 processors, 4 and 6GB of RAM, 64 and 128GB of storage, 12MP cameras with variable apertures, 3,000mAh and 3,500mAh batteries, Android Oreo, wireless charging, headphone jacks (!), and glass bodies.
