Pre-orders for Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ now open at US Microsoft Store

Last year there was some uproar and slight confusion when Microsoft started selling the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ in their online and physical retail stores. Well, the company is once again doing the same for Samsung’s brand new Galaxy S9 and S9+, which are now up for pre-order at the US Microsoft Store (via Windows Central.)

As you can see in the featured image above, both handsets are front and center today on the “Phones” landing page of Microsoft’s website. The store listing for the $719 Galaxy S9 and the $839 Galaxy S9+ shows that pre-orders will start shipping by March 16, 2018. Microsoft also emphasized that the premium handsets are compatible with the Microsoft Launcher app, and they can also run the “software you use every day” including Cortana, Office 365, and Skype.

Samsung’s latest flagship Android phones are nice looking devices, and definitely a nice upgrade for those who are jumping off the Windows 10 Mobile ship. Both of them are powered by Qualcomm’s top-of-the-line Snapdragon 845 processor, Android Oreo and feature a beautiful AMOLED edge-to-edge display. We put together a guide on how you can turn your Android device into a “Microsoft Phone” so consider giving it a read if the Galaxy S9/S9+ are on your wish list.
