Samsung announced on April 30 that it’s releasing both 128GB and 256GB versions of its Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus in the US.
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 retail for $819.99, and the 256GB Galaxy S9 Plus goes for $939.99.
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.
