SAMSUNG GALAXY S9 AND S9 plus

  • Super Slow motion capture (960 fps)
  • Dual Aperture camera that adapts like your eye
  • Stunning Infinity Display
  • Dual Stereo Speakers tuned by Harman

With the exponential growth in technology, mobile phone tech is no different. Consumers expect jaw dropping technology with every release. While Apple’s iPhone X was released with mixed reviews, Samsung’s Galaxy S8 did better.

 

Not only did the phone offer fast facial recognition, far ahead of Apple, but the screen ration, lack of bezel, and no home button made technological progress in all the right areas.

Unlike Apple, Samsung sets its mobile phone year at the beginning, setting the bar ahead of competitors. Tired of talking about the iPhone X? Because the rumor mill is already swirling with Samsung’s Galaxy S9 release.

But does Samsung’s 2018 release offer much above and beyond the well appreciated S8?

Samsung Galaxy S9 release date, price, news and features:

What’s the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ release date?

The Samsung Galaxy S9 launch date is today (February 25) and the phone will be up for pre-order in the next few hours or days depending on where you live. You’ll be able to get the phone in your hands from March 16.

Samsung Galaxy S9 release date

Samsung Galaxy S9 was announced on stage at MWC 2018

Galaxy S9 pre-orders open now in Europe, March 1 in the US

Galaxy S9 release date set for March 16

The Samsung Galaxy S9 was officially unveiled on stage at MWC 2018, but it won’t be on shop shelves just yet.

If you want to buy the Galaxy S9, you’ll be able to pre-order it from 7PM GMT on February 25 in the UK – that’s right after the launch event. Those in the US have to wait until March 1 for pre-orders to open, and we’ve yet to learn about the timing for the rest of the world.

As for when you’ll actually get the phone, the Galaxy S9 release date is set for March 16 globally. You may want to pre-order to ensure you get your device on that date, but everyone will be able to buy it from March 16 2018. But how much is it going to set you back?

 

Samsung Galaxy S9 price

Official SIM free price set at £739 / $719.99 / AU$1,199 if you buy from Samsung

Further pricing is set to follow, and we’ll update when we know more

Samsung has confirmed the price of the Galaxy S9 in the UK at £739, $719.99 in the US and AU$1,199 in Australia.

In the UK, we’ve only currently heard of contract pricing from EE. Deals there start at £53 a month with an upfront cost of £150. That gets you 4GB of data every month as well as unlimited minutes and texts.

In the UK, it’s a 7% price increase over last year, but a massive 25% bump from the price of the Galaxy S7.

We also don’t know any specific US or UK contract pricing yet, but we’ll be sure to update here when we hear from the major networks and carriers on both sides of the Atlantic.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 doesn’t offer any major improvements over the display on the Galaxy S8 – there’s sadly no in-screen fingerprint scanner here, like on the Vivo X20 Plus UD – but it still offers some high-end specs.
