Those hoping to pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 can get £400 off their purchase
Samsung unveiled its flagship Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ handsets during its Galaxy Unpacked keynote this weekend.
The flagship smartphones boast a dramatically improved Dual Pixel camera with a variable aperture for improved low-light photography.
The new handsets also boasts a super slow-motion video capture mode, which can shoot 960 frames-per-second.
Galaxy S9+ owners also benefit from a dual camera system on the back of the phone, which adds an artificial blur to the background of portrait shots, dubbed Live Focus.
Underneath the bonnet is the top-of-the-range Qualcomm SnapDragon 845, which offers faster speeds and greater power efficiency.
This is coupled with 4GB of RAM in the Galaxy S9, and 6GB in the larger Galaxy S9+.
Both smartphones support fast charging over wired and wireless connections.
Samsung Galaxy S9 costs £739, while the S9+ carries a price tag of £869 if you’re looking to buy the handset SIM-free.
However, Virgin Mobile has announced a competitive new trade-in offer that could see your new Galaxy S9 discounted by up to £400.
Those who pre-order the Samsung S9 or Galaxy S9+ before March 15th on Virgin Mobile could receive up to £400 cashback when they recycle their old smartphone.
The limited time offer will see Virgin Mobile throw-in an additional £100 on-top of the usual cashback value of your old handset.
To qualify for the full £400 cashback on your new Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+, you’ll need to trade-in last year’s flagship smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S8.
