Galaxy S9 pre-orders open March 2 in South Korea, priced higher than Galaxy S8


Last updated: January 29th, 2018 at 11:40 UTC+01:00

We already know that Samsung is going to unveil the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ on February 25 in Barcelona. The company will reveal the pricing and availability details of its new flagship at the event. A new report out of South Korea possibly reveals when Samsung will open Galaxy S9 pre-orders in its home country. It also mentions that the Galaxy S9 will be priced higher than the Galaxy S8.

Galaxy S9 pre-orders

According to a new report out of South Korea, the Galaxy S9 pre-orders will start on March 2 in Samsung’s home market. All three major carriers in the country are said to offer the device. The Galaxy S9 pre-orders will reportedly be live for one week from March 2-8.

The report also mentions that the Galaxy S9 is going to be slightly more expensive than its predecessor. Samsung sold the 64GB Galaxy S8 for 935,000 won or $875 in South Korea and it’s now expected to charge between 950,000 won and 990,000 won or $890-$930 for the Galaxy S9.

As we know what to expect from the Galaxy S9, it’s not surprising to hear that it’s going to cost a bit more than its predecessor. It was never believed that the new flagship might cost the same as the Galaxy S8.

If the information in this report is accurate then Samsung will open Galaxy S9 pre-orders a week after the handset is unveiled at MWC 2018. It started taking pre-orders for the Galaxy S8 the very next day after unveiling it on March 29. Some reports have suggested that Samsung will stick to the script for the Galaxy S9 as well.
