The Galaxy S9 and S9+ are both official now, but there's still the pesky question of where to pick one up. You can always go the unlocked route, but carrier deals can present a decent discount. Plus, you've got aesthetics to take into consideration. Will this retailer have that color? And where can you grab it first? If you can't focus past the adjustable aperture in your enthusiasm for Samsung's latest, don't worry. We've got those details here.
Samsung's official PR on the subject of pre-orders and availability is as follows:
In the U.S., Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will be offered in Lilac Purple, Midnight Black and Coral Blue for carrier and Unlocked by Samsung versions. Preorders begin March 2, 2018. AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular, Verizon Wireless and Xfinity mobile will carry Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ in stores beginning March 16, 2018, as well as at Best Buy stores and BestBuy.com, Amazon, Costco, Sam’s Club, Target and Walmart. Cricket Wireless and MetroPCS will offer Galaxy S9 and S9+ in Midnight Black. Samsung Galaxy S9 Enterprise Edition will be available in Midnight Black. The new devices will be available beginning March 16, 2018.
Available through Samsung.com and the Shop Samsung app, the Unlocked Galaxy S9 is $719.99 or $30/month for 24 months financing, and the larger Unlocked Galaxy S9+ is available for $839.99 or $35/month for 24 months financing.
Starting March 2, 2018, consumers who pre-order a Samsung Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9+ can save up to $350 with qualifying trade-in. The promotion will last for a limited time and is available at Samsung.com, the Shop Samsung app and select retailers. Visitsamsung.com/us/trade-in for more information.
The statement gives some detail about the retailers and carriers stateside that plan to sling the S9 and S9+, and it includes unlocked pricing, but not carrier-related details. Thanks to the terror/magic of carrier-subsidies, that's gonna vary.
Ma Bell AT&T plans on stocking the S9. If payment plans are your style, you can pick up an S9 via AT&T Next for $26.34 a month over 30 months (a cumulative $790.20), or the dual-camera S9+ for $30.50 a month over the same period ($915), excluding taxes.
Outright pricing through AT&T hasn't been disclosed—AT&T probably prefers not to say in the hopes that customers will remain tied in service for longer periods via payment plans. But it should be nearly identical to the cumulative pricing above, so around $790.20 for the S9, and $915 for the S9 plus. It also hasn't disclosed any trade-in or accessory promotions in relation to the S9 and S9+.
Color options on AT&T also haven't been revealed, but you can pre-order it as soon as March 2nd, with units in-store starting March 16th. (More details available here.)
Sprint, like all the other major carriers, will be entirely too happy to sell you a Galaxy S9 or S9+, especially if you can rationalize doing so on a payment plan. Sprint's runs $33 a month for the S9, and $38 a month for the S9+, with outright pricing around $792 and $912.
Like previous phones, the Galaxy Forever program is available and included with all S9 and S9+ purchases, so you can continuously upgrade via monthly payments if that's your thing.
Sprint will have the phones in Midnight Black, Coral Blue, and Lilac Purple, with pre-orders opening March 2nd, and purchases on March 16th. Sprint is also selling the phones through Boost Mobile, probably with similar terms, but more limited color availability: just black. For more details, check out the full PR.
The house of Legere will also supply interested parties with Samsung's new flagship. For $30 a month you can pick up either phone on T-Mobile's Equipment Installment Plan, but the S9+ will cost you an extra $150 up front.
Either can also be purchased outright, with the smaller S9 running $720, and the S9+ $840. (That's the same price that the monthly payments work out to, FYI.) Postpaid voice and business customers can also get up to $360 off a maximum of twelve of the phones on trade-in with the discount being returned by billing credit over 24 months (among other terms and conditions).
T-Mobile will stock both phones in the colors Midnight Black, Lilac Purple, and Coral Blue, and you can pre-order them beginning on March 1st at 9:01PM PT (or March 2nd in ET, like all the other carriers), with stock hitting stores on March 16th. You can sign up for related notifications here, and T-Mobile's full press release on the subject is just over here.
If you want to pick up an S9 or S9+ from US Cellular, it hasn't announced specific pricing just yet, but it's running the same trade-in promo for up to $350 off that the other carriers and Samsung are doing, with financing available.
Unlike the other carriers, US Cellular is also running a few accessory-related promos. You can grab your phone together with a power bundle that gets you a wireless charger, car charger, and portable battery for an extra $124.99 (with financing available).
Pre-orders start on March 2nd, like everyone else, and US Cellular will offer the phone in Midnight Black, Coral Blue, and Lilac Purple, with in-store and general availably on March 16th.
Like every other carrier, Verizon will be happy to sell you the Galaxy S9 and S9+. Big Red's pricing runs $33.33 a month for 24 months in the case of the S9 and $38.74 over the same period for the larger S9+.
Just as the monthly costs at Verizon run a bit more expensive, so too is the outright pricing, with the S9 and S9+ retailing for $799.99 and $929.99, respectively. Like T-Mobile, Verizon is also running a trade-in promotion—alternately claiming $500-$350 off eligible phones. Like T-Mobile, it's in the form of a bill credit, with terms attached.
What Verizon seems to lack in discount it makes up for in volume, as the company is also running five other related deals in parallel:
- $150 prepaid MasterCard when porting in a new line of service
- Verizon Up Customers with an active Samsung smartphone will get $10 off select Samsung accessories.
- 50% off select Samsung tablets with 2-year agreement
- $100 off Gear S3 smartwatch with purchase of Galaxy S9 or S9+
- Samsung Fast Charge Power Bundle for $99.99
For the full details, you can check out Verizon's announcement.
Samsung directly announced sales at Best Buy (store and site), Amazon, Costco, Sam's Club, Target, and Walmart beginning on March 16th, but other retailers will probably also get in on the action. It remains to be seen which participating retailers will be involved in pre-orders, though. You'll also be able to pre-order directly from Samsung's online store.
Samsung plans on selling the handset directly for the same prices as last year's S8 and S8+, at $719.99 in the case of the smaller S9 and $839.99 for the larger S9+, with financing options available ($30/month for 24 months and $35/month for 24 months). Samsung also has a trade-in plan, like last year, which can save you up to $350 if you're willing to give up a qualifying handset.
Pre-orders for the S9 and S9+ are now live, and the links have been added to this post.

Today’s cameras are for more than taking pictures – they’re for connecting and communicating. Consumers want a smartphone camera with state-of-the-art technology to tell their own, unique story.
The Galaxy S9 and S9+’s cameras are built with these consumers in mind, with a Super Speed Dual Pixel sensor with dedicated processing power and memory that can combine up to 12 distinct images into one amazing shot for the highest photo quality possible. The Galaxy S9 and S9+’s camera features include:
Super Slow-mo – Make every day moments epic with dynamic, slow-motion video that captures 960 frames per second.
Low Light Camera – Good lighting is the secret to any great photo. Samsung’s Dual Aperture automatically adjusts the lighting for crisp and clear photos anytime, anywhere.1
AR Emoji – With augmented reality tools, you can create an emoji that looks, sounds and acts just like you.
The Galaxy S9+ can also take your camera game one step further with 3 extra features:
Dual Camera – The Dual Optical Image stabilization on both lenses lets you capture crisp photos with less motion blur, even if you’re shooting in the dark or from a distance.
Clear Zoom – Capture crisp photos when you zoom in from a distance.
Live Focus – Focus on what you want and adjust the amount of background blur in your photo. You can even preview what the image will look like before you snap the picture.
The Galaxy S9 features a 5.8” edge-to-edge Infinity Display and stereo speakers pro-tuned by AKG. For those looking for even more screen, the Galaxy S9+ has a 6.2” display. Pair that with DIRECTV and you’ll enjoy some of the best in entertainment from movies and live-action sports, to made-for-television series and live concerts.2
“When you buy the Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ from AT&T, there’s no better way to enjoy DIRECTV than with the edge-to-edge infinity display on the nation’s largest and most reliable network,” said Kevin Petersen, SVP, Device and Network Services Marketing, AT&T.3 “And, on AT&T Unlimited Plus or AT&T Unlimited Choice you can watch, download, game and stay connected – all with HBO included.”4

The Galaxy S9/S9+ will let first responders tap into the full FirstNet experience, delivering a reliable, highly secure and always-on connection to the critical information they need. The Galaxy S9/S9+ is also the first Samsung device with built-in Band 14 access, the new frequency band that will be built out for FirstNet.
“First responders need smart, innovative and robust device options to help them carry out their missions. So, we’re excited to add the form and functionality of the Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ to our FirstNet device portfolio later this March,” said Chris Sambar, SVP, AT&T – FirstNet. “We promised to work with the device community to help deliver next-generation technologies to public safety. And, we couldn’t be more pleased that Samsung built Band 14 into the Galaxy S9/S9+, helping us keep that commitment while unlocking access to top-of-the-line devices that first responders can use to help achieve their missions. The more innovation we can drive for our first responders, the more we can help them stay safe and save lives.”

Get half off the new Samsung Galaxy S9 at T-Mobile when you pre-order with trade-in starting this week
Bellevue, Washington — February 25, 2018 — It’s a bird…it’s a car skyrocketing into space…no, it’s the new Galaxy S9 and S9+, comin’ to T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS)! These two superphones will be the fastest ever in Samsung’s famed Galaxy lineup, and they light up ALL the advanced capabilities – including 600 MHz – on T-Mobile’s network…the fastest LTE network ever! It all starts this Thursday, March 1 at 9:01 p.m. PT when you can pre-order from the Un-carrier and get half off the S9 or $360 off the S9+ via bill credits with eligible trade-in! Both superphones will be available in T-Mobile stores nationwide and online on March 16, and the Galaxy S9 will hit the shelves at MetroPCS on the same date.
“These Samsung phones are really built for the way people communicate today and that requires serious SPEED,” said John Legere, president and CEO at T-Mobile. “T-Mobile has built the fastest LTE network ever – and you wouldn’t open up your new Lambo on a dirt road, so why connect a speedster like the S9 to anything but the fastest network?”
These two superphones have state-of-the-art hardware that can tap into advanced LTE technologies on the T-Mobile network — including the trifecta of 4x4 MIMO, carrier aggregation and 256 QAM, as well as License Assisted Access (LAA). The Un-carrier has now deployed the trifecta of LTE-Advanced technologies in nearly 5,000 cities and towns across the country, and since the Galaxy S9 and S9+ rock the latest Snapdragon 845 chipset from Qualcomm, they can hit a blistering 1.2 Gbps in laboratory tests, a 20% increase in peak theoretical speed over the Galaxy S8.
T-Mobile’s LTE network consistently ranks fastest according to billions of real-world tests from customers on every network, and those same real-world tests show that T-Mobile customers get an LTE signal more often than any other wireless customers. T-Mobile’s LTE network covers 322 million people – nearly every American – and the Un-carrier is bringing coverage to entirely new places with its new 600 MHz spectrum, which travels twice as far and works four times better in buildings. The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ are the first of more than a dozen new 600 MHz capable smartphones set to launch at T-Mobile this year.
Made for the way we communicate and express ourselves more with images, videos and emojis, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ both rock Samsung’s most advanced camera ever. Redesigned with a new dual aperture lens that powers an innovative low light camera, Super Slow-mo video capabilities and personalized AR Emoji, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ ensure you never miss a moment and make your everyday epic.
The Galaxy S9 and S9+ deliver an enhanced entertainment experience with powerful stereo speakers tuned by AKG, surround sound supported by Dolby Atmos and a refined edge-to-edge Infinity Display – a key staple in Samsung’s design heritage. In addition, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ will come with the new SmartThings app, which unites Samsung’s existing IoT services into one single, smart experience.
The Galaxy S9 is available in Midnight Black, Lilac Purple or Coral Blue for just $30/month on the T-Mobile Equipment Installment Plan ($0 down, FRP: $720), with the larger Galaxy S9+ also available for pre-order in the same colors for $30/month ($120 down, FRP: $840).
This deal is available for a limited time. Postpaid voice customers and T-Mobile Business customers can get up to $360 off twelve Galaxy S9 or S9+ superphones. Just trade in one of many qualifying smartphones, and the funds come back to you automatically via 24 monthly bill credits.

Photos with flair.
One of the biggest innovations to the Galaxy S9 and S9+ is the new dual-aperture camera system that lets you capture incredible photos in low-light situations that you can easily share on your favorite social app on Verizon. For non-camera geeks, aperture refers to the part of the camera that controls how much light hits the sensor. The lower the aperture, the more light the camera absorbs, which means you take sharper photos at night or indoors. This is perfect for photographing your kid’s school play or for candid photos at your best friend’s bachelor party.
The Galaxy S9+ also includes a new dual-lens camera with optical image stabilization that allows you to take sharp photos, even when you zoom in on the subject. The Galaxy S9+ also features Live Focus so you can choose your subject and select the amount of background blur you want, before you take the photo.
Customized for you.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 lets you create an emoji that looks, sounds and acts just like you. AR Emoji analyzes a photo of your face and matches it with more than 100 facial features to create a 3D model that reflects and imitates expressions – like winks and nods – for true personalization. You can even share your emojis across most messaging apps.
Customize your Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ even further with dozens of new cases available at Verizon from Samsung, Kate Spade, Incipio, tech21 and more. Also, check out the new DeX Pad (available for preorder March 2)****, a docking station for your Galaxy S9/S9+ that gives you a desktop-like experience with the ability to connect an external monitor, mouse and keyboard. Finally, take advantage of the Galaxy S9’s fast-charging with the new Fast Charge Wireless Charging Stand (available online Feb. 25; in store March 2).
Unlock with a look.
The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ isn’t just about fun and entertainment. Under the hood, the smartphones support three different biometric authentication options – iris, fingerprint and facial recognition – so you can choose the best way to protect your device and applications. Samsung also introduced Intelligent Scan, a new verification method that uses a combination of iris scanning and facial recognition technology to quickly and securely unlock the phone in any environment.
