The Samsung Galaxy S9 will be the latest flagship smartphone to be released by Samsung in 2018. The latest flagship will be accompanied by its brother, the Galaxy S9 Edge. In this article we’ll be sharing details on what countries the Galaxy S9 will be released in.
To start with, the Galaxy S9 will be released in the following countries: North America, (USA and Canada), United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, some parts of Europe.
The first wave may include up to 60 more countries – this will include most of Europe, Russia, some parts of the middle east, some countries in Africa and the majority of South America. The Galaxy S9 Edge will also come to India and other parts of Asia.
Due to different trade rules in place in 2018, we may have to wait till closer to the Galaxy S9 release date to confirm whether the Galaxy S9 will be available in each individual country.
The best rule of thumb to apply for determining whether the Galaxy S9 will be available in your country is to look at the last three flagship devices from Samsung. If all three of the last Galaxy flagship devices are available in your country, it’s very likely the Galaxy S9 will be available. If only some of the last three devices are available in your country, there’s a small chance that the Galaxy S9 will not be available. If no devices are available in your country, unfortunately the Galaxy S9 probably won’t come to your country.
The Galaxy S9 may also be released in waves – whilst it may be available in South Korea, North America, UK, Canada, USA and some parts of Europe to begin with, it may take a few months after release for stock to rollout worldwide. If you’re in a country not listed within the initial 60 countries, you may have to wait a little longer for the Galaxy S9 release.
