Samsung has finally taken the wraps off of its latest and greatest smartphone, the new Samsung Galaxy Note 9. The device is jam-packed with new features, a beautiful design, and, in typical Galaxy Note fashion, a massive display.

Now that the new device has been announced, you might be wondering how you can get your hands on it for yourself. After a few weeks of pre-orders, the Note 9 is now available online and in stores. Whether you’re looking to buy it through a carrier or unlocked, here’s everything you need to know about buying the Samsung Galaxy Note 9.

Unlocked

As you might expect, the Galaxy Note 9 is available unlocked. It’s available through Samsung’s website, but you can also order it through Amazon, Best Buy, Costco, Target, and Walmart. It costs $1,000 for the 128GB version, and the 512GB model is $1,250. Both the ocean blue and lavender purple models are available on the site. There’s financing available, so you don’t need to pay the full price up front.

Depending on where you buy the phone, you might get some other perks. Here’s a rundown of the unlocked Galaxy Note 9 deals going on. These deals are running for a limited time — so get in quick if you want them.

  • From Samsung.com, if you order the Galaxy Note 9 you’ll get a Wireless Charger Duo and a Galaxy Note 9 cover. Or, you can pay an extra $100 and you’ll get the Wireless Charger Duo, Galaxy Note 9 cover, and a pair of IconX wireless earbuds.
