On the past two DL Shows, we debated what the price of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ would be. After hearing rumors of a major price increase coming over last year’s Galaxy S8 and S8+, we figured we were looking at having to pay $50-$100 more for each phone. Today, Samsung announced both and the Galaxy S9 prices have surprised the hell out of us.
How much do they cost?
The US unlocked Galaxy S9 costs $719.99 and the unlocked Galaxy S9+ costs $839.99. Compared to last year, that’s a $5 decrease in price on the S9 and only a $15 increase in the S9+. And remember, we’ve got upgrades across the board, including more RAM and a second rear camera in the S9+. That’s not bad!
