The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ launched a short time ago with 64GB of storage as the default option. For the vast majority of people, 64GB is a perfectly fine amount of storage. Especially if you use a lot of cloud storage and media streaming services. However, people who like to take a lot of photos and videos may run out of space. Samsung is launching more storage options to cater to those folks.

Starting May 1st, Samsung will offer 128GB and 256GB storage options for the Galaxy S9 and S9+. They are the exact same phones that launched previously with 64GB of storage, just with more storage. Same processor, same battery, same display, same everything. The only other difference is the price. You’ll be paying a pretty penny to get the extra storage space. Here’s how the pricing breaks down:

The prices equal an extra $50 for each storage upgrade. Keep in mind you can still use a microSD card to expand storage up to 400GB with any of the models. These extra storage options will be available for pre-order on May 1st. They will begin shipping on May 18th. Anyone who buys any Galaxy S9/S9+ between May 1-17 will get a free pair of Gear IconX Bluetooth earbuds or a discount on the Gear S3 Frontier. Samsung is only selling the extra storage version on their own website. You won’t find them at carrier stores or Best Buy.
