Samsung has officially announced their latest smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus. The announcement was made at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, revealing that preorders start March 2 and hit stores March 16.

The price points come in a tad below its Apple rivals, with an unlocked S9 available at $720 or an unlocked S9+ at $840. However, if purchasing direct from Samsung, they now offer a "Trade-Up and Save" program where they will offer you up to a $350 discount depending on what phone you'll be trading in.  

The highlights of the new members of the flagship Galaxy S series are the dual aperture lens, slow-mo capabilities, the augmented reality selfie emoji and camera translation. These new features coupled with the infinity edge screen and face recognition make these new phones a powerful tool for enhancing your social media game. Plus, they are available in three colors - Midnight Black, Coral Blue and Lilac Purple.

These pricey personal devices need to be protected and cases are already hitting the market. The Armpocket Mega i-40 case has a design that is already a perfect fit for the S9 and the Armpocket Mega i-40 Plus for the S9+ and provides a weatherproof comfortable armband case for active owners.

Armpocket is manufactured out of Eco-friendly, sustainable materials and its patented design protects your device from sweat and the elements. It features a highly responsive touch control window and headphone audio ports, allowing the ability to easily access all the features of your Galaxy S9 smartphone with the touch of a finger. The Eco-friendly padded material is made out of no-slip memory foam, and the comfortable vented strap allows for convenient, form-fitting placement every time. The high visibility reflective piping offers a level of safety not seen in comparable cases. With all the new accessories hitting the shelves in anticipation of the new S9, put this on your list as a “must have.”
