The Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus will come to Xfinity Mobile on March 16 just as with the other carriers in the U.S. and with Samsung’s own online store. Xfinity Mobile customers will be able to get up to $450 off the price of either phone when utilizing a coupe of promotions that are being afforded to subscribers of the service. First off, subscribers can get a $250 Visa prepaid gift card if they’re activating a new line with Xfinity Mobile when they buy one of Samsung’s new phones. The gift card is also available for each new line that is activated, so more lines equals more gift cards.
What’s more is that qualified trade-ins can bring in the additional $200 savings, though it is worth pointing out that Xfinity Mobile says “qualified trade-ins” but doesn’t mention what is considered qualified and what isn’t, so you’ll want to check if your a subscriber of the service. Just as with the other carriers and retailers the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus pre-orders with Xfinity Mobile will start on March 2, but pre-registration will begin tomorrow, February 26. As for pricing, Xfinity Mobile will be charging the same prices that Samsung is charging at retail, which means the Galaxy S9 will be $720, and the Galaxy S9 Plus will be $840.
While Xfinity Mobile hasn’t mentioned the prices for the phones just yet, it will be selling the Lilac Purple, Coral Blue, and Midnight Black colors of each phone so no matter which one you decide to go for you won’t be limited on color choices. Samsung’s Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus are both powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, with the Galaxy S9 having 4GB of RAM and the Galaxy S9 Plus having 6GB of RAM. Both come with 64GB of internal storage space as well and support expandable storage up to 400GB via microSD cards if you need more room. The Galaxy S9 will have a 3,000mAh battery inside while the Galaxy S9 Plus will come with a larger 3,500mAh battery to account for the increase in RAM and the larger display, and it will also have two 12-megapixel cameras on the back compared to the single 12-megapixel camera on the Galaxy S9. Both will come running on Android Oreo software with Samsung’s latest Experience UI.
