Galaxy S9 storage upped to 128GB, 256GB if you’ll pay

Maybe you’ve been avoiding the Galaxy S9 because of its storage. Although it has 64GB wide open, you could be someone who often handles large file sizes. That’s why Samsung has just announced bigger storage sizes for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+.

Both varieties of the 2018 flagship are now offered with your choice of 128GB or 256GB of storage for photos, movies, and more.

The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ with 128GB or 256GB of storage are sold in Lilac Purple, Coral Blue, and Midnight Black. Samsung isn’t limiting the storage sizes to any particular color.

More storage comes at a price, so it’s no surprise to see that the two new sizes are very expensive. The 128GB model is $770 for the Galaxy S9 and $890 for the Galaxy S9+. If you need to double even that amount, the 256GB model jumps to $840 and $960. Both have a $20 discount during the pre-order period.

Remember, though, that Samsung includes a microSD card slot with its flagship. With that said, you might not need to grab one of these massive storage sizes.

Following the acceptance of pre-orders this week, units will be available for immediate purchase on May 18. Those who pre-order will also receive a free Gear IconX (2018). Samsung, by the way, will be the exclusive seller of these models in the United States.
