As we face the new year, leaked details about Samsung’s upcoming flagship smartphone are now everywhere. We’re almost at the end of running around the rumor mill as the company finally confirmed its release date.
A previous report suggests that the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ will be unveiled in CES 2018. But since the tech convention in Las Vegas is almost done, there’s no more chance for Samsung to reveal it in the said event.
According to a report from ZDNet, DJ Koh, Samsung Mobile’s President, confirmed that the Galaxy S9 and S9+ will take center stage this February in Mobile World Congress, happening in Barcelona.
Based on a recent leak, it looks like the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ will carry most of the characteristics that its predecessors have. However, the new flagships will bring new improvements and a major design flaw fix.
What we’re talking about here is the fingerprint scanner location. As per the renders, it looks like Samsung has finally relocated the sensor for easy reachability.
Moreover, the devices are also expected to come with a Snapdragon 845 variant. The Galaxy S9+ is also expected to have a dual-camera setup at the back like on the Galaxy Note 8. This will finally give more justification to get the more expensive model instead of settling for the regular, smaller version.
We expect more details about the Galaxy S9 to be spilled before MWC takes place. As always, we’ll report new information once we have it.
