It is just a few hours before the Galaxy S9 and S9+ are let loose. Both devices have been under the leaks and rumors radar for some months now. Earlier today, we got hold of a supposed official leaked launch video, now, just ahead of the official launch hour the pre-order page of the Galaxy S9 duo has popped up somewhere in Russia.
A Russian retailer; ozon.ru has listed both the Galaxy S9 and S9+ for pre-order at a starting price of RUB 60,000/$1,065/€866 for the S9 and RUB 67,000/$1,190/€967 for the S9+.
As per information on the pre-order page, fans would have to wait for three weeks before the device will be shipped to their destinations. Since the device will be unveiled today, the shipping date essentially translates to March 16, which is quite in line with some of our earlier reports.

Apart from the availability date and prices, the pre-order page didn’t reveal other details, so we would have to wait till the devices are made official to get official specs sheet.
Elsewhere, Flipkart India has also published a teaser page for the upcoming flagships, an indication that the device will be launched in India soon after today’s unveiling.
