Want to get your Samsung Galaxy S9 early? Reserve it right now
Samsung's brand new Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ smartphones will be available to pre-order starting March 2, with their official launch date set for March 16. It's hard to foresee how popular the two phones will be at launch, but, if you want to make sure you're among the first to get an S9 or S9+ in the US, you can do something about it right now. 

Samsung already allows US customers to reserve the Galaxy S9 and S9+, although this is valid only for the unlocked variants of the phones. You can make a reservation only on Samsung's official website - see the source link below. Both the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ can be reserved in any of the following three color variants: Midnight Black, Coral Blue, and Lilac Purple. 

After you reserve your new phone, Samsung will send you an e-mail notification on March 2 in order for you to actually place a pre-order. You'll need to complete your purchase within 72 hours, and, if you do that, Samsung guarantees "shipping by March 14." If you don't complete your pre-order, your initial reservation will be cancelled, says Samsung, and "your ability to place a pre-order going forward will be subject to availability of devices and any shipping times available at the time of your pre-order." Fair enough. 

The unlocked Galaxy S9 will be sold for $719.99, or $30 per month for 24 months with Samsung's own financing program. The unlocked Galaxy S9+ will be offered for $839.99, or $35 per month for 24 months. 

Do you plan to reserve an unlocked Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9+? Or are you waiting for the carrier versions of the handsets (which should go on pre-order come March 2)?

In Vegas, we have phone world, and cellular superstore. Google them, and see if they'll ship, once they receive them. I found a couple exynos Note 7's at both stores. Worth a shot.

Excatly mate. Just played with the S9 and S9 plus today in Samsung store Samsung made these phones so compact S9 it’s kinda like mini S9 and S9 plus kinda 6 inch! When you comparte to note 8 you will feel that note 8 like a tab lol, seems that Samsung trying makes both phones as light and compact as they can.

Samsung royally screwed those of us who paid top dollar unlocked S7s. We were LAST to receive updates. All the carrier phones we given updates long before us. It'll be a cold day in hell when I play that game again.
