Samsung Galaxy S9 release date
- Samsung Galaxy S9 was announced on stage at MWC 2018
- Galaxy S9 pre-orders open now in Europe, March 1 in the US
- Galaxy S9 release date set for March 16
The Samsung Galaxy S9 was officially unveiled on stage at MWC 2018, but it won’t be on shop shelves just yet.
If you want to buy the Galaxy S9, you’ll be able to pre-order it from 7PM GMT on February 25 in the UK – that’s right after the launch event. Those in the US have to wait until March 1 for pre-orders to open, and we’ve yet to learn about the timing for the rest of the world.
As for when you’ll actually get the phone, the Galaxy S9 release date is set for March 16 globally. You may want to pre-order to ensure you get your device on that date, but everyone will be able to buy it from March 16 2018. But how much is it going to set you back?
Samsung Galaxy S9 price

Samsung has confirmed the price of the Galaxy S9 in the UK at £739 and $719.99 in the US (about AU$1310). Right now we don’t know pricing for Australia, but we’ll update this piece once we hear more.
In the UK, we’ve only currently heard of contract pricing from EE. Deals there start at £53 a month with an upfront cost of £150. That gets you 4GB of data every month as well as unlimited minutes and texts.
In the UK, it’s a 7% price increase over last year, but a massive 25% bump from the price of the Galaxy S7.
We also don’t know any specific US or UK contract pricing yet, but we’ll be sure to update here when we hear from the major networks and carriers on both sides of the Atlantic.
