Samsung Galaxy S9 Price

Samsung's Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are set to be unveiled this coming Sunday, and they're definitely going to be great new phones. They feature the best cameras and performance Samsung has ever managed in a smartphone, and either one will make a fantastic replacement for your current smartphone... as long as you're willing to spend $850, $950, or even over $1,000. That's right, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ are going to be insanely expensive, and lots of people don't want to blow that kind of cash on a phone. Luckily for them, Samsung just quietly released two new phones in the US that cost way less.

Behold the brand new Galaxy A8 and Galaxy A8+, two new phones that offer high-end construction and a premium all-screen design at a mid-range price point. They're available to purchase right now from a few different retailers including Amazon, which has both the Galaxy A8 and Galaxy A8+ in stock right now with free Prime shipping. Of note, however, neither model includes a warranty if you buy it on Amazon. One retailer is offering the A8 and A8+ with a warranty though, and that's B&H.

New leak reaffirms the worst news we’ve heard about Samsung’s Galaxy S9

Samsung Galaxy S9 Release Date

The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ haven't even been unveiled yet, and we've already been on a roller coaster ride. Samsung was said to be working behind closed doors on an exciting new design that featured even smaller bezels above and below the phones' displays. The resulting handsets would have featured class-leading screen-to-body ratios, and Android fans were excited. Then, for reasons unknown, Samsung apparently cancelled its redesigned flagship phones — or at least delayed them until next year. In their place, the company will release two new smartphones that look almost exactly like their predecessors, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. Samsung fans were disappointed, and so were we at first. Of course, the Galaxy S8 and S8+ are still two of the best-looking smartphones on the planet, so seeing those same designs on the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ isn't such a bad thing.

Once you come to terms with the fact that this year's flagship Galaxy S phones will look just like last year's flagship Galaxy S phones, almost everything else we've heard about the upcoming new Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ has been positive. Almost everything.

Galaxy S9 is reportedly $100 more than the S8, but Samsung’s launch deal could save you $350

Galaxy S9 Launch Deals

The Galaxy S9 is expected to be some $100 more expensive than its predecessor, according to some rumors. Even if that's accurate, that would still make the Galaxy S9 more affordable than the iPhone X. But, at $850, it’s quite expensive. And that’s the entry-level model that features a single-lens rear camera and 64GB of built-in storage. The Galaxy S9+ will be even more costly than that, especially the versions with more storage. But Samsung is reportedly working on a sweet deal that will make the Galaxy S9’s price far more reasonable, and the promotion could be available as soon as the Galaxy S9 and S9+ launch.

For a few months now, Galaxy S9 leaks dominated most news cycles, with more and more details being revealed about Samsung’s next big thing. However, the biggest revelations came over the past few days, thanks to Reddit posts from users who have actually used Galaxy S9 prototypes, as well as insiders with access to Samsung’s marketing materials for the upcoming flagship handset.

It turns out, however, that an Asian-based leaker has been posting plenty of Galaxy S9 secrets on twitter for months how.

The Galaxy S9 you can’t buy might be faster than any other Android flagship this year

Galaxy S9+ vs. iPhone X vs Android

A few days ago, we saw a bunch of Galaxy S9 benchmark scores pop up, including leaked and official ones. It started with a leak showing Geekbench scores for the Snapdragon 845 version of the handset, which were quickly confirmed by the early Snapdragon 845 reviews that hit the web.

Immediately after that, the first Galaxy S9 Geekbench benchmark for the Exynos 9810 version was leaked, suggesting that the international model will be a lot more powerful than the US-bound one. A fresh leak reinforces that idea. Samsung’s new chip seems to be much closer to Apple’s A11 Bionic than the Snapdragon 845. That means the Galaxy S9 you can't buy in the States might be faster than most of this year's Android flagships, as many of them will be powered by Qualcomm's mobile platform.
