Samsung Galaxy S9 is set to launch at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 in February, and also a brand new leak has apparently revealed the exact launch date as well as pre-order and sending dates. Samsung’s next flagship series, which will be the successor to the company’s Galaxy S8 lineup, is widely predicted to include 2 models – the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. Prolific tipster Evan Blass has tweeted that which he calls the details of this “go-to-market schedule for Galaxy S9 and S9+”. The upcoming Samsung smartphones will compete against Apple’s flagship iPhone X.
Earlier, in a press conference at CES 2018, Samsung’s Mobile Communications Business President DJ Koh had disclosed that the company’s first flagship smartphone of 2018 will be unveiled at MWC, which is scheduled for February 26 to March 1.
Now, based on Evan Blass’ tweet, Samsung will start the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ on February 26. Further, he says, the handsets will probably be up for pre-orders from March 3 and also start shipping from March 16. Blass states a “C-level executive in a significant casemaker” has shown these details.
Incidentally, South Korean news outlet The Bell had said that Samsung is planning to host a launch event for its Galaxy S9 on February 26. The Bell’s report also pointed out that unlike the Galaxy S8 launch that happened in March last year, the smartphone maker is looking at an earlier program this time on account of the swift increase of this iPhone X.
Meanwhile, rumours and leaks have outed lots of the details related to their specifications and attributes. As per Brazil’s National Telecommunications Agency (ANATEL) listing, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will probably package at precisely the exact same battery capabilities as those of the past year’s Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, respectively.
Additionally, the two smartphones are expected to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor in the US, along with the newly launched Exynos 9810 SoC in global markets, including India. Additionally, the Samsung Galaxy S9 is rumoured to sport a single back camera setup, while the Galaxy S9+ might get a dual camera module. A 512GB variant of this Galaxy S9+ is also rumoured to be declared at the launch.
