Samsung announced today that it’s releasing both 128GB and 256GB versions of its Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus in the US this month. Preorders open May 1st on Samsung.com with the devices actually coming out on May 18th. (They’ll only be for sale through the company’s website.) The new storage options will be available in all three of the phones’ color choices: purple, blue, and black.
The 128GB Galaxy S9 will cost $769.99, while the 128GB Galaxy S9 Plus will cost $889.99. The 256GB Galaxy S9 will cost for $839.99, and the 256GB Galaxy S9 Plus goes for $959.99, but Samsung is offering a $20 discount on the 256GB models during the preorder period (through May 17th). All preorders will include a free Gear IconX (2018) or the chance to a buy a Gear S3 Frontier for $99. These models were already introduced in some international locations, including India, so it’s nice that the company’s bringing them stateside to complement the standard 64GB version. Of course, both phones support microSD storage expansion, so if you don’t want to lay out the premium for more storage at the outset, it’s easy to add more later on.
Update May 7th, 10:10am: Updated pricing for the 256GB S9 and S9 Plus models with preorder and full retail prices.
