Galaxy S9 will be up for pre-order on March 2, report claims

Samsung will start accepting pre-orders for the much-anticipated Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus in South Korea on March 2, according to a new report.

Korean outlet ET News has revealed that the Galaxy S9 will retail for somewhere in the region of $890 (≈£631) to $930 (≈£660) in the firm’s home country – up from the $875 (≈£621) it commanded for the Galaxy S8.

Pre-orders will open on March 2 and run through March 8, it added. The first wave of units should start shipping in South Korea on March 9, a day before they’re tipped to start making the rounds in Europe.

But that doesn’t seem entirely feasible.

Samsung started accepting reservations for the Galaxy S8 the day after it unveiled it and we’ve seen rumours – from credible sources – suggesting that it will stick to the same script for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus.

With that in mind, it would be best to take this latest tidbit with a considerable pinch of salt. But here’s the good news: we won’t have to wait too much longer to find out exactly what the manufacturer has up its sleeve.

Samsung confirmed at the beginning of the month that it will take the wraps off both the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9 Plus at Mobile World Congress (MWC 2018) in Barcelona, Spain on February 25.
