Samsung is bringing two new bigger versions of the Galaxy S9 and S9+ to the US

Samsung Galaxy S9

Samsung on Monday announced that it will begin selling both the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ in 128GB and 256GB storage options in the US next month. At launch, the 64GB model was the only model available for either phone, but preorders for the high-capacity phones will begin on May 1st with a full launch planned for May 18th.

As Samsung states, its customers fill their phones with “uncompressed photos, 4K videos, feature-length movies and more.” Even with the ability to increase storage with an SD card, 64GB simply doesn’t cut it for some users, which is why Samsung decided that its fans should “have a variety of ways to keep their content close.”

Samsung will sell the 128GB Galaxy S9 for $769.99, while the 128GB Galaxy S9+ will retail for $889.99. The 256GB Galaxy S9 will come in slightly higher at $819.99, and the 256GB Galaxy S9+ will be the most expensive of the bunch at $939.99. All four new models will be sold exclusively on, so don’t expect to see them in brick-and-mortar stores. The new models will also be available in Lilac Purple, Coral Blue and Midnight Black.

If you preorder any of the high-capacity phones, you will also receive either a free Gear IconX (2018) or the ability to buy a Gear S3 Frontier smartwatch for $99. If you were in the market for a new phone anyway, that’s a decent cherry on top. The Gear S3 Frontier retails for nearly $300, while the IconX headphones sell for $200.

These are the exact same phones that Samsung launched back in March, but it’s nice to see the company at least giving consumers the option to buy a phone with greater storage capacity this time around.
