We had earlier revealed the US, UK and South Korean prices. but what about the Samsung Galaxy S9 Malaysia prices and availability? Here are the full details!
Samsung Galaxy S9 Malaysia Prices
The Samsung Galaxy S9 will only come with a 64 GB storage option worldwide, but the larger Samsung Galaxy S9+ will be offered with larger 128 GB and 256 GB storage options outside of the US. Malaysia is one of these lucky countries.
Here is a table we prepared that summarises the four models that will be offered here in Malaysia, and their prices versus the cheapest US prices.

|Samsung Galaxy S9 (64 GB)||$ 719.99||RM 3,299 (~$ 845)||RM 3,112 (~$ 798)||$78 (11%)|
|Samsung Galaxy S9+ (64 GB)||$ 839.99||RM 3,799 (~$ 974)||RM 3,584 (~$ 919)||$79 (9.4%)|
