Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ thread - March 16th Release - Watch Samsung announce the Galaxy S9 in 12 minutes

Although they only go up for pre-order in the US on March 2, the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ have already entered that phase up north in Canada ahead of their March 16 release.
Interestingly, the S9 and S9+ are cheaper at launch in Canada than their predecessors were last year, when the S8 went for CAD 1,035 and the S8+ commanded a price of CAD 1,115. So at least in some parts of the world the rumored price hike for the new handsets hasn't panned out.
The Canadian versions use the Snapdragon 845 chipset like those intended for the US, and not Samsung's own Exynos 9810 which can be found in devices sold elsewhere. The color versions available in Canada are Lilac Purple (pictured above) and Titanium Gray.
