Samsung’s next flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S9 series, will reportedly be unveiled at Mobile World Congress 2018. If Samsung does introduce the S9 series at the convention, it is expected to be available on store shelves as early as March 2018.
According to a report by The Bell, the Galaxy S9 series will debut on February 27; a day before MWC 2018 opens its doors. Previously, it was believed that Samsung will preview the S9 at CES 2018 next month. Evidently, that doesn’t seem to be happening anymore.
Based on previous leaks and rumours, the Galaxy S9 series is expected to be incremental upgrades. The Galaxy S9 and S9+ will sport similar designs as their predecessors, and their fingerprint sensors are said to be moved right below the camera lens; a much more ergonomic placement.
Aside from that, the Galaxy S9+ will likely feature a dual-camera system not unlike the one found on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 – and 6GB of RAM. The standard S9, on the other hand, is believed to come with a single rear camera and slightly less RAM at 4GB.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 phones may not be radically different from their predecessors, but they will likely bring meaningful changes. We should learn more about Samsung’s upcoming flagships as we get closer to MWC 2018.
