Samsung to launch Galaxy S9 and S9+ on February 25, a day ahead MWC 2018 kickoff. The Galaxy S9 series announcement event invite recently rolled out by Samsung. The latest report from South Korean website ETNews shares the info regarding the Galaxy S9 release and pricing for the South Korean buyers. According to the report, the Galaxy S9 Pre-orders will kick off pretty soon after the announcement and also the price tag will be slightly higher than the predecessor.
The report suggests Samsung Galaxy S9 pre-orders will kick off from March 2 in the company's home country. The pre-orders will be live for one week. All three major carriers in South Korea will be offering the handset. Another important aspect is the Galaxy S9 rumored to cost higher than the predecessor. The Galaxy S8 64GB variant was offered for 935,000 won in South Korea which is $875 at the current currency exchange rate. The report suggests the Galaxy S9 fall between 950,000 won ($890) and 990,000 won($930).
We have been hearing about the price increase for quite some time, so it won't be surprising to see a slight increase in pricing as opposed to last year device. If the report is accurate this means Samsung has plans to start taking pre-orders a week after the announcement. Last year Galaxy S8 was up for pre-orders the very next day soon after the announcement on March 29, there were few reports Samsung might stick to last year's schedule of release.
As nothing is from the official sources that's why we will recommend taking the info with a grain of salt. Stay tuned, we will keep you updated.
