The much-anticipated release of Samsung's newest lineup of Galaxy phones is almost here! The Galaxy S9 and S9+ are set for preorder starting March 2nd, and there is a lot to look forward to with the newest Samsung devices. From a much improved camera to better positioning of the fingerprint scanner, Samsung has made some significant changes to the Galaxy lineup, and you won't want to miss out! If you're hoping to get your hands on the newest phones from Samsung, keep reading to learn more about the preorder process, along with what you can expect from the all-new S9 and S9+.
As mentioned, preorders for the S9 and S9+ begin on March 2nd, but keep in mind that orders don't actually start shipping out until March 16th. It's still a good idea to get your preorder in as soon as preorders start, however, in order to ensure your device ships by the release date. With the anticipation for these new devices mounting, there's a good chance the S9 and S9+ will be in back order status once released, which could mean waiting significantly longer for your new phone than if you had preordered. All major carriers, such as T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon are offering preorders, and in most cases you can place your preorder under a payment plan, so you don't have to worry about paying the full amount up front. In addition, you can preorder your new S9 or S9+ from the Samsung website, and financing is available to qualified buyers. Big retail stores like Best Buy will also be open for preorders starting March 2nd. Keep in mind that you may be eligible to trade in your current device, which can save you up to $350 on your new Galaxy phone purchase.
The Galaxy S9 and S9+ comes with some exciting changes over last year's models, including a faster processor, more RAM, significant improvements to the camera, including super slow-motion capability, Dolby ATMOS sound with dual speakers, a repositioned fingerprint scanner, and more. The new Galaxy phones are available in three colors: Midnight Black, Coral Blue and Lilac Purple, though later colors may be released at a later date or through specific carriers. Pricing on the new devices is similar to that of the S8 and S8+ pricing from last year, which is great news for Samsung Galaxy lovers. The S9 starts at $719.99, while the S9+ starts at $839.99. Pricing may vary based on promotions by specific retailers.
