Verizon's Galaxy S9 is an absolute bargain for a limited time at a 50 percent discount
Even though the Galaxy S9 is obviously no longer part of the mobile industry's cream of the crop, having made its commercial debut more than 18 months ago with a single 12MP rear-facing camera in tow, Samsung continues to charge a full $600 through its official US website for the 5.8-incher in both unlocked and carrier-specific variants.

On the bright side, if you're an existing Verizon subscriber willing to add a new line of service, you can bag the early 2018-released high-ender for as little as 300 bucks overall. Technically, you're not looking at an outright discount of $300 here, but rather $300 credit applied to your account over 24 months. 

Naturally, that also means you need to sign up for one of those two-year device payment plans. After taking the credits into consideration, you'll spend just $12.49 a month, amounting to an affordable grand total of around $300. That's certainly not bad for a handset that seems to be holding up well enough, what with a powerful Snapdragon 845 processor under the hood, alongside 4GB RAM, 64 gigs of internal storage space, and a respectable 3,000mAh battery with fast charging and wireless charging support.

Available in a black paint job only at the hefty aforementioned discount from Verizon, the 5.8-inch Samsung Galaxy S9 also sports a beautiful "Infinity" Super AMOLED display with a top-notch resolution of 2960 x 1440 pixels, as well as no actual notch or hole punch. That makes the phone look somewhat outdated, but we won't blame you if you've started feeling nostalgic about this cleaner, simpler, more symmetrical flagship design.

In case you're wondering, yes, the GS9 will definitely receive an official Android 10 software update in the not-so-distant future, which is yet another reason why it feels like an absolute bargain at a massive 50 percent off its list price. Just keep in mind this renewed special offer won't last long, having an October 14 expiration date attached to its terms and conditions.
