Samsung launches Galaxy S9 128 GB and 256 GB variants in the US
Samsung just announced that it's ready to officially release upgraded variants of its Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ phones in the US. More exactly, we're talking about S9 and S9+ versions with 128 GB and 256 GB of storage space, which will be available to pre-order starting tomorrow, May 1.  

The new Galaxy S9 and S9+ models will properly go on sale on May 18, exclusively at Samsung, so it doesn't look like any carrier has plans to sell them. The smartphones will be offered unlocked, with three color options available: Midnight Black, Lilac Purple, and Coral Blue. Here are the new handsets' prices:

  • Galaxy S9 128 GB - $769.99
  • Galaxy S9+ 128 GB - $889.99
  • Galaxy S9 256 GB - $819.99
  • Galaxy S9+ 256 GB - $939.99

From May 1 through May 17, folks who pre-order any Galaxy S9 or S9+ will be able to get a Gear IconX (2018) for free, or a Gear S3 Frontier smartwatch for just $99.99.

Apart from the extra storage space, the upcoming Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ won't differ from the 64 GB variants that have been available to buy since March (for $719.99 and $839.99, respectively). All in all, if you want to double the storage space on either Galaxy S9 smartphone, you'll be paying an extra $50 - we'd say that's pretty reasonable.
