Galaxy S9 1

Been itching to get your hands on Samsung’s latest flagships? the good news is that both the Galaxy S9 and S9+ are now up for pre-order, along with some nice freebies!

Galaxy S9 2

Both the S9 and S9+ feature Samsung’s signature design with their curved Super AMOLED displays, and are powered by a top of the line Exynos 9810 octa-core processor along with 4GB/6GB of RAM.

The new devices have also been taken up a notch in terms of optics. The 12MP rear camera is able to capture super slow motion videos, along with the dual aperture feature, for spectacular looking shots even in less than ideal condition. There’s auto-take, which allows users to automatically record a slow motion video of a moving subject. Now, they can also use a short video as a lock screen decoration, and even place background music on slow motion videos. The S9+ in particular, also sports a second 12MP rear camera with a telephoto lens that lets it zoom in on details.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 will retail for PhP45,990, while the S9+ will be priced at PhP52,990 for the 64GB variant, PhP55,990  for the 128GB variant, and PhP60,990 for the 256GB variant.

As an added bonus, everyone who will pre-order will also get their choice of an exclusive gift – an AKG S30 Bluetooth Speaker, a Wireless Charger Convertible, or PhP3,500  worth of vouchers that can be used to purchase any Samsung mobile product from  the same store, and on the same day of purchase.

There are also additional complimentary giveaways which include a 6-month Screen Warranty voucher, Zalora and honestbee vouchers, and 10% off on selected Samsung wearables.

You can pre-order your own Galaxy S9 or S9+ until March 6, 2018 at samsung.com/ph/s9preorder, Samsung Experience Stores, and select Abenson’s and SM Appliance Stores nationwide.
