Samsung Galaxy S9 Launch Place for MWC 2018, Confirms Samsung Mobile Chief
After some initial speculations, Samsung has officially confirmed the Galaxy S9 will debut Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 at February.
The newest flagship, which is going to be the successor to the organization’s past year Galaxy S8, is forecast to come in two different variants – the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. The smartphone has been rumoured to have attributes like a thin-bezel, Infinity Display and a double camera setup.
Samsung’s Mobile Communications Business President DJ Koh at a press conference in CES 2018 disclosed that the first flagship smartphone of 2018 will be unveiled at MWC, while its earnings date is going to be announced in the event itself, reports ZDNet. Some early rumours pointed into the unveiling of the new Galaxy series flagship at CES into a small audience, but South Korean outlet The Bell last month saidthat the company is planning to host a launch event for the Galaxy S9 on February 26 – the beginning date of the MWC. The Bell’s report also pointed out that unlike the Galaxy S8 launch that occurred in Marchthis past year, the smartphone maker is looking at a previous program this time on account of the swift growth of this iPhone X.
If we examine some past rumours, the Galaxy S9 would have an improved iris scanner over the one featured on the previous year’s Galaxy S8. Some recent renders claim that the flagship would have a fingerprint detector below its primary camera, very similar to the some of the lately launched models including Galaxy A8 and Galaxy A8+.
Among the two, the Galaxy S9+ is thought to have 6GB of RAM as well as 512GB of storage. The bigger variant in the new Galaxy S household is also reported to possess a dual camera setup. But both the Galaxy S models are very likely to come with a 3.5millimeter headphone jack – the one which has been component of the latest Google Pixel household and the iPhone range.
Koh also reportedly mention that the existence of a foldable phone by the South Korean giant sometime next year and the access to Bixby 2.0 after this year. He’s also thought to have highlighted the Bixby virtual helper will be available across all Samsung devices by 2020.
