Softening the blow: the Galaxy S9 will be bundled with free gifts... in some markets
So, the rumor mill is relentlessly churning out reports that the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ duo will be “the most expensive Galaxy S phones ever”. No numbers have been pinned, but considering that the Galaxy S8 started at $750, we are thinking that the Galaxy S9 might hit the $800 mark as its starting price... and we are wincing a little on the inside.

The price of the flagship smartphone is rising steadily and that hurts. However, Samsung will try to soften the blow, according to a new rumor.


Apparently, select markets will get a special gift to go with their brand-new Galaxy S9. What kind of gift? Well, we don't know yet. Possibly a new set of Gear VR goggles? A game controller? Wireless headphones? OK, we are dreaming now.

Unfortunately, the leakster did say that only a few markets will get the gift bundle, which means that the rest of the world will have to pay the full price without getting many perks in return.
