March 16 was announced as the Galaxy S9 release day when the handset was officially unveiled last month and Samsung today confirmed that its new flagship smartphone is now available for purchase in dozens of markets across the globe. The company has also confirmed that the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will be available for purchase in more than 110 markets by the end of this month.
Galaxy S9 release
Samsung and its partners have been taking pre-orders for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ for the past couple of weeks. Those who pre-ordered their units will get them on the Galaxy S9 release day which is today. However, some lucky customers have already received their units in several markets.
The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are available in stores today in approximately 70 countries, including all of Europe, Canada, China and the United States. Samsung says that the Galaxy S9 release will cover 110 markets by the end of March 2018.
It’s going to be a swift roll out this year, not that anybody is going to complain about that, enabling customers in non-key markets to get their hands on the new flagships from Samsung earlier.
The Galaxy S9 brings a slew of new features to the series like Super Slow-motion video recording, AKG-tuned stereo speakers, AR Emojis and deeper integration with Bixby. It’s also the only smartphone available on the market right now with a Dual Aperture lens.
