Some media outlets earlier suggested that Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ will be unveiled during Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in January, 2018. However, such speculations are considered rubbish by South Korean Smartphone manufacturer, Samsung. If not in CES then it is safe to assume that both flagship smartphones might release in Mobile World Congress 2018 in February.
Samsung Galaxy S9 will succeed its predecessor, Galaxy S8 while Samsung Galaxy S9+ will be successor of Galaxy S8+ smartphone. There might not be much changes in design and specifications of smartphones and likely to be offered with upgraded features that were offered in previous editions. Another device that is likely to unfold in MWC 2018 is Samsung Galaxy X – the first paper-like fold-able smartphone.
Other industry speculations that might fall ill is packing of optical in-screen fingerprint scanner as it is yet in development phase and unlikely to make it for Galaxy S9 and device might rest with conventional fingerprint sensor. However, Galaxy S8 users complained that placing of fingerprint sensor is not perfect because users mistakenly touch phone’s camera instead of scanner. So few position alignment should take place in the new edition placing scanner below the dual cameras.
S9 and S9+ will likely to feature a infinity edge display which was highlight of previous edition, S8 but with higher screen to body ratio touching near to 90-percent, as per the sources.
The Korean Herald tried to contact Samsung spokesperson about the launch of the device and features but spokesperson denied to make any official comment stating that; “We do not provide any information regarding un-released smartphones.” Well the mystery might unfold on Mobile World Congress to be held on February 26, 2018 and Samsung might launch an special event before a day to unveil its flagship bearer smartphones S9, S9+ and Galaxy X also get some official launch date.
