Samsung launches preorders for the Galaxy S9 in 128GB, 256GB storage varieties

If you’re looking for a US Galaxy S9 with more than 64GB of space, Samsung is starting preorders today for two higher-storage variants of its flagship smartphone. Samsung has announced that 128GB and 256GB versions of the Galaxy S9 can now be preordered in the US, with shipments starting May 18.

The Galaxy S9 originally launched in the US in March with only an entry-level 64GB storage tier. Samsung forfeited the spec sheet bragging rights to its biggest rival, Apple, which launched its latest iPhone with a 256GB storage tier. Extra built-in storage isn’t as necessary on Samsung phones since they have a MicroSD slot, allowing digital pack rats to buy the 64GB phone and slap in a giant SD card later.

The move to only launch with 64GB in the US certainly seems carrier-driven, as all the carrier models are 64GB and Samsung’s new higher storage models are exclusively available on Samsung.com. Thankfully, Samsung is only charging $50 for each 64GB jump in storage. Here’s the price breakdown for the new models:

The Galaxy S9’s Dex Pad launches May 13 for $99.99

By Ron Amadeo

Hot off the launch of the Galaxy S9 last month, Samsung is about to release one of the device’s main accessories, the Samsung Dex Pad. Plug your flagship Samsung smartphone into this little dock, then plug in a monitor, mouse, and keyboard, and you’ll have a full-blown desktop OS interface powered just by your phone. Preorders are open today on Samsung.com, and the device ships May 13. Starting today, Samsung is also offering a free Dex Pad to anyone who buys a Galaxy S9 or S9+ from Samsung.com.

Samsung Dex runs the Android OS you know and love but reworked into a desktop form factor with a windowed multitasking interface. The Dex Pad requires a USB-C equipped Samsung device (so a Galaxy S8, Note 8, or S9) with Android 8.0. The dock has two USB A ports (typically for a mouse and keyboard), HDMI for the monitor, and USB-C for power. Running a desktop interface can be tough on a phone’s processor, so the Dex Pad also has a fan to help everything run a bit cooler and faster.

In late-breaking photo leak, Galaxy S9 bares it all

By Ron Amadeo

WinFuture

German site WinFuture has given us a ton more Galaxy S9 pictures to admire before the phone’s launch next week. The pictures show everything we’ve been expecting: a phone that looks a lot like the existing Galaxy S8 but with a revised camera and fingerprint setup on the back.

Besides offering the most complete look yet at Samsung’s next flagship, these pictures shoot down an odd regression shown in the earliest Galaxy S9 leaks. The early pictures shared by VentureBeat showed a Galaxy S9 with thicker side bezels than the Galaxy S8, and now it seems those were not accurate. These pictures show a design that seems to have the same slim side bezels as the Galaxy S8, which, as usual, will curve into the phone body.

Here’s our first clear look at the Samsung Galaxy S9

By Ron Amadeo

VentureBeat

VentureBeat’s Evan Blass is back with another phone leak. This time it’s the Samsung Galaxy S9, which has just had its launch event announced for February 25.

As expected, this year’s iteration looks a lot like the Galaxy S8. Samsung did a major redesign last year, so we were expecting a phone that more or less looks the same. It’s still a phone that is nearly all-screen with round corners, a battery of sensors at the top for Iris scanning, and a Bixby button for launching Samsung’s horrible voice assistant. The main addition for 2018 is a new camera, which is expected to have a variable aperture.
