With the Samsung Galaxy S9 officially being announced on the 25th of March at MWC 2018, we’re sure some are wondering when the phone itself will be available for purchase. The good news is that it appears that Samsung won’t be making customers wait too long because according to a report out of Korea, pre-orders will be kicking off on the 2nd of March.
Take note that the report claims that pre-orders will begin on the 2nd of March in South Korea, which means that in other parts of the world, the pre-order dates could be different. However Samsung typically launches its flagship phones worldwide simultaneously, or at least for the major markets, so we wouldn’t be surprised if pre-orders in the US or Europe were to begin roughly around the same time as well.
As for its actual release date, previously leakster Evan Blass claimed to have heard that Samsung was aiming for a release on the 16th of March, which means that the 2nd of March pre-order dates doesn’t seem so out of the question, giving Samsung and customers a two-week window from pre-orders to a release.
