The Samsung Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9 Plus are finally here, with the latest and greatest Qualcomm processor – The Snapdragon 845 – with lots of RAM, and a new camera that Samsung hopes will make the Galaxy S9 the phone of choice for photography lovers.
Now that the new phone is here, you're wondering how you can get your hands on yourself. There are many ways to buy the phone, and we have researched them so you do not have to. Whether you want to buy the phone through an operator or directly from Samsung, here we show you how to access the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus.
Now that the orders in advance are over, the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus are now available for purchase directly from the Samsung website. You can also access the retailer's device such as Best Buy, Amazon, Sam's Club, Target and Walmart.
If you're looking for the most varied range of storage options, buying from Samsung is your best bet. In April, the smartphone maker announced that it would launch a storage option of 128 GB and 256 GB for the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9 Plus exclusively on its website.
The 128GB Galaxy S9 will sell for $ 770 and the same storage configuration in the Galaxy S9 Plus will cost you $ 890. If you want to maximize your storage, a 256GB option of the Galaxy S9 will be available for $ 820, while the S9 Plus of the same size will sell for $ 940. Advance orders will begin on May 1 and the devices will be available for purchase on May 18. If you pre-order a Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus with a storage capacity of 128 GB or 256 GB before May 17, you will also opt for a free Gear IconX or Samsung Gear S3 Frontier for $ 100.
If you choose to pick up the Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus from Samsung.com or through the Shop Samsung application, you can choose an unlocked version of the Samsung Galaxy S9 for $ 720, or $ 30 per month for 24 months. The larger S9 Plus will take you back a little more: $ 840 or $ 35 per month, for 24 months.
If you're upgrading from a previous Galaxy device, Samsung is also offering an exchange program that could save you up to $ 300 on a new Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus. The details of this trading option are available on Samsung's site, as is the list of models that can be marketed.
For a limited time, Samsung is also offering its newest accessory, the Dex Pad, for free with new purchases of the S9 and S9 Plus. Dex Pad is a dock that, together with a monitor, converts the S9 into a desktop workstation with access to your Android applications and the option of connecting a keyboard and a mouse for even easier use. To qualify for the offer, simply request a new S9 or S9 Plus from the Samsung website between 11 a.m. ET of April 9 and 11:59 p.m. ET on April 30. You will receive the Dex Pad when it leaves on May 13.
AT & T
For a limited time, AT & T offers a very nice promotion for AT & T Next customers. Buy any Galaxy S9 and you'll receive an invoice credit of $ 395, halving the price of Samsung's new flagship. If you prefer to give the Galaxy S9 Plus or Note 8, AT & T will also grant the same $ 395 credit for these devices.
After the limited promotion ends, we anticipate that AT & T will return to its usual promotion for the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus. AT & T Next customers can get the standard Galaxy S9 for $ 26.34 per month for 30 months, while the Galaxy S9 Plus will come for $ 30.50 per month for 30 months. That gives a total of $ 790.20 for the Galaxy S9 standard, or $ 915 in total for the Galaxy S9 Plus.
AT & T has also announced that its MVNO, Cricket Wireless, offers the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9 Plus in select stores.
Like other operators, Sprint now offers the Samsung Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9 Plus to its customers, with a somewhat peculiar treatment. Customers who buy the Samsung Galaxy S9 or the Galaxy S9 Plus will get a star they can name. Yes, a literal star. The offer is only available "while stocks last".
Telephones are priced at $ 33 per month for the Galaxy S9 or $ 38 per month for the S9 Plus in the Sprint Flex rental program. Through Sprint, you can also get a $ 150 gift card if you change your phone number to Sprint.
If you're looking for two new Galaxy S9 phones, Sprint can have the perfect business for you. The carrier offers a limited-time rental offer that offers a monthly bill credit for a device when you rent two. For example, if you rent two Galaxy S9 phones, you will see a monthly lease charge of $ 66 and an invoice credit of $ 33.
Sprint says the phone is also available on Boost Mobile.
