Update: Pre-orders are now live - head here.

Original story follows:

Today Samsung has decided to bring the 128GB and 256GB Galaxy S9 and S9+ to the USA. Both iterations will become available to pre-order tomorrow, on May 1. They will be released on May 18, exclusively at

We assume the company has surveyed the market and figured out there wouldn't be a lot of demand for these storage versions. Otherwise, selling them exclusively through its online store wouldn't make a lot of sense.

Of course, you can still use microSD cards (up to 400GB) even with these models, for a possible maximum grand total of 656GB on your phone if you splurge and go for the one with 256GB built-in. That's definitely a lot of space.

The 128GB S9 is priced at $769.99, while for 256GB you'll pay $819.99. The Galaxy S9+ costs $889.99 with 128GB, and $939.99 with 256GB. Both phones and storage options will come in Lilac Purple, Coral Blue, and Midnight Black.

Really loving my 456GB Exynos Note 8. Sync and manage pretty much ALL my files from my Surface Pro 2 to my Note 8 and vice versa, my Note 8 is literally a pocket PC.

Paying for content on à la carte basis will more than make up for the cost saving from lower data usage and longer lasting battery.
