T-Mobile Brings the Fastest Samsung Phone Ever to the Fastest Network Ever!
It's a bird…it's a car skyrocketing into space…no, it's the new Galaxy
S9 and S9+, comin' to T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS)! These two
superphones will be the fastest ever in Samsung's (News - Alert) famed Galaxy lineup,
and they light up ALL the advanced capabilities - including 600 MHz - on
T-Mobile's network…the fastest LTE network ever! It all starts this
Thursday, March 1 at 9:01 p.m. PT when you can pre-order from the
Un-carrier and get half off the S9 or $360 off the S9+ via bill credits
with eligible trade-in! Both superphones will be available in T-Mobile (News - Alert)
stores nationwide and online on March 16, and the Galaxy S9 will hit the
shelves at MetroPCS on the same date.
"These Samsung phones are really built for the way people communicate
today and that requires serious SPEED," said John Legere, president and
CEO at T-Mobile. "T-Mobile has built the fastest LTE (News - Alert) network ever - and
you wouldn't open up your new Lambo on a dirt road, so why connect a
speedster like the S9 to anything but the fastest network?"
These two superphones have state-of-the-art hardware that can tap into
advanced LTE technologies on the T-Mobile network - including the
trifecta of 4x4 MIMO, carrier aggregation and 256 QAM, as well as
License Assisted Access (LAA). The Un-carrier has now deployed the
trifecta of LTE-Advanced technologies in nearly 5,000 cities and towns
across the country, and since the Galaxy S9 and S9+ rock the latest
Snapdragon 845 chipset from Qualcomm (News - Alert), they can hit a blistering 1.2 Gbps
in laboratory tests, a 20% increase in peak theoretical speed over the
T-Mobile's LTE network consistently ranks fastest according to billions
of real-world tests from customers on every network, and those same
real-world tests show that T-Mobile customers get an LTE signal more
often than any other wireless customers. T-Mobile's LTE network covers
322 million people - nearly every American - and the Un-carrier is
bringing coverage to entirely new places with its new 600 MHz spectrum,
which travels twice as far and works four times better in buildings. The
Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ are the first of more than a dozen new 600 MHz
capable smartphones set to launch at T-Mobile this year.
Made for the way we communicte and express ourselves more with images,
videos and emojis, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ both rock Samsung's most
advanced camera ever. Redesigned with a new dual aperture lens that
powers an innovative low light camera, Super Slow-mo video capabilities
and personalized AR Emoji, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ ensure you never miss a
moment and make your everyday epic.
The Galaxy S9 and S9+ deliver an enhanced entertainment experience with
powerful stereo speakers tuned by AKG, surround sound supported by Dolby
Atmos and a refined edge-to-edge Infinity Display - a key staple in
Samsung's design heritage. In addition, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ will come
with the new SmartThings app, which unites Samsung's existing IoT
services into one single, smart experience.
The Galaxy S9 is available in Midnight Black, Lilac Purple or Coral Blue
for just $30/month on the T-Mobile Equipment Installment Plan ($0 down,
FRP: $720), with the larger Galaxy S9+ also available for pre-order in
the same colors for $30/month ($120 down, FRP: $840).
