The Galaxy S9’s official announcement from Samsung is just around the corner, but when will you actually be able to buy one? Well, if you’re in South Korea, you won’t have to wait long at all. Samsung will be opening up pre-orders for their device starting on March 2nd, if the latest rumor is accurate.
That puts the announcement on Sunday, February 25th, followed by a pre-order period starting on Friday, March 2nd and running through the following Thursday, with what will likely be an official South Korean release on Friday, March 9th. Rumors are rumors, but this does sound very plausible.
Okay, so you can buy the phone at the start of March, but how much is it going to cost? Well, the bad news is that it’ll be slightly more than the Galaxy S8. Rumors state that the Galaxy S9 will retail for around 950,000 won on the low end, which is right at $900 in US dollars. Expect the Galaxy S9+ to do even more damage to your wallet.
We still have some fuzzy details to hammer out based on local currencies and different countries throughout the world, but we’re starting to get the full picture for Samsung’s 2018 flagship.
