Galaxy S9 PRICE DROP: Samsung’s flagship costs PLUNGE following Note 9 release

Galaxy S9 was announced in February and introduced a host of new features to the product line.

The biggest addition was the Dual Aperture system that allowed its camera sensor to manually open or close depending on the lighting circumstance.

Overall this allowed for pictures taken in low-light to retain more detail and brightness.

The device also boasted a new Samsung processor and 4GB of RAM to make for incredibly speedy performance.

But now it appears the flagship is more affordable than ever thanks to a deal on Amazon.

The online retailing giant has cut the price of the S9 in coral blue, lilac purple and midnight black versions from £739 to £619.

Each comes with 64GB of internal storage that can be expanded with a MicroSD card.

The deal is part of Amazon’s August bank holiday sale that has seen a score of items with price cuts.

Galaxy S9 is also discounted on the South Korean tech giant’s own website with the flagship coming down to £639.

Meanwhile, the phone is also currently available on contract with for £23 a month.

Although an upfront cost of £120 is required to take advantage of the deal, the contract gives customers 4GB of data, unlimited texts and unlimited minutes through provider Vodafone.

The Galaxy S9 launched for £869 back in February, but now appears to be a very good time to pick it up for customers looking to jump over to the Android ecosystem or to get their hands on some of the latest and greatest tech Samsung has to offer.

Amazon’s deal comes hot on the heels of the Galaxy Note 9’s public debut.

The supercharged phablet boasts the same processor as the Galaxy S9 but packs in more RAM, a second camera sensor and a wealth of internal storage.

Note 9 released on Friday, August 24, and is selling for a whopping £899 for the baseline model with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

However a more expensive version of the hardware is available for £1,099 – this variant touts 8GB of RAM and 512GB of storage.
