To avail this offer, users can buy any of the following Samsung smartphones: Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, Galaxy Note 8 or the Galaxy S8 Active. The offer will be available until March 1, only through the Shop Samsung app and on company's US website.

Talking of the Galaxy S9, the smartphone is said to come with the zippy Snapdragon 845 processor. The device recently made an appearance on AnTuTu benchmarks. It obtained an average benchmarking score of 2,65,257. While the Exynos 9810-powered variant is said to be more powerful, achieving this score is no small feat.

The AnTuTu listing has further revealed some key specs of the Galaxy S9+. As stated, the smartphone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor paired with Adreno 630 GPU on top. The memory aspect is taken care of by 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage space. As for software, the smartphone is shown running on Android 8.0 Oreo operating system.

As per the AnTuTu listing, the Samsung Galaxy S9+ has a screen resolution of 2,220×1,080 pixels. However, it is most probably the default screen resolution supported by the smartphone's display. Going by previous reports, the smartphone will ship with a 6.2-inch S-AMOLED Infinity Display similar to that of its predecessor.
