Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus price
There is a great competition in the market as the new entrants such as OnePlus, Xiaomi are launching great smartphone at very low price. The feature they offer with such low price in their smartphone is attracting the customers and giving cut throat competition to the companies like Samsung.
Keeping all these things in mind, we believe that the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus price should be between the price band of $800-$900 for 64 GB model in the United States, not more than that. If the company increases price, the customer might consider buying other brand phones. They have plenty of choices by now. The price may go over $1000 for 128 GB & 256 GB models.
