Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ Pre-order

The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ were finally revealed at MWC 2018, and pre-orders are already being taken by most UK networks and retailers. So what do you need to know about the latest Samsung flagship?

  • An improved design - The Galaxy S9 phones design has been refined. They're now more comfortable to hold, are easier to pick up off flat surfaces and have an edge to edge display. Unlike the S8, the S9’s fingerprint sensor now sits below the camera module allowing for more comfort.
  • Micro SD slot and Storage - The two phones now have MicroSD card slots so that you can expand the already spacious storage. The S9 not only comes in 64GB but it also now has 256GB option which the S8 never had.
  • Water and dust resistance - The Galaxy S9 is iP68 water and dust resistant, which means that it can be submerged in up to 1.5 meters of water for up to 30 minutes. Great for when you kid drops it down the toilet, and the ports are sealed so there aren't any fiddly waterproof caps to keep closed.
  • A new improved camera - The 12 megapixel sensor now has a clever mechanical aperture shift that will move between f/2.4 and f/1.5, depending on your environment. Another new feature that sets the S9 apart from the S8 is the real time translations for a wide range of languages.

So how do I get one?

The Galaxy S9 and S9+ are available to pre-order from most UK networks and retailers. Many are offering incentives, so it's worth shopping around to get the best deal. Here are a few we've found so far:

  • EE are offering to deliver 7 days early so if you want the S9 or S9+ as soon as possible then this would be the network for you.
  • Carphone Warehouse are offering a free Samsung micro SD card when you pre-order.
  • Vodafone have 16GB for the price of 4GB.
