Samsung Galaxy Note 9: how to preorderAugust 9, 2018
Samsung’s new Galaxy Note 9 has been announced, and if you want a big, powerful Android phone that can run Fortnite exclusively for 30 days, you can reserve yours starting early tomorrow morning at 12:01AM ET on August 10th. (That’s 9:01PM PT, August 9th for those on the West Coast.)
The phone is expected to officially release on August 24th. If you’re interested in Samsung’s latest, you should probably reserve early on, but it won’t be cheap.
You can buy the Note 9 through Samsung’s website or the Samsung Shop app either unlocked or through a carrier. If you aren’t tied to a carrier, you’ll find the cheapest price here with no strings attached.
If you pre-order, Samsung will include either a set of AKG noise-canceling headphones ($299 value) or 15,000 V-bucks ($150 value), which is Fortnite’s in-game currency. You can buy both of them for $99 at checkout.
Samsung offers up to $450 toward the purchase of a Note 9 if you trade in your current smartphone. Of course, the credit you’ll receive depends on the phone you’re looking to trade in. It ranges from $200 for the LG V30 to $450 for iPhone X, Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, or Google Pixel 2 XL.
- $999 for 128GB of storage and 6GB of RAM
- $1,249 for 512GB ROM with 8GB of RAM
Preorders for the Note 9 open at Verizon at 12:01AM ET, August 10th, and it’s also offering a choice between AKG noise-canceling headphones or 15,000 V-bucks, again, Fortnite’s in-game currency. Verizon offers both for $99 down at purchase. If you buy two Note 9s at Verizon, the carrier will pay you back for one of them over the course of 24 monthly payments.
- 128GB model is $999, or $42 per month for 24 months
- 512GB option is $1,249, or $52 per month for 24 months
