The smartphone has been rumoured to have features such as a thin-bezel, Infinity Display along with a double camera setup.
Samsung’s Mobile Communications Business President DJ Koh at a press conference at CES 2018 revealed that the first flagship smartphone 2018 will be unveiled in MWC, while its earnings date will be announced in the event itself, reports ZDNet. Some early rumours pointed to the unveiling of this new Galaxy series flagship in CES into a small crowd, but South Korean outlet The Bell last month statedthat the company is likely to host a launch event for its Galaxy S9 on February 26 – the beginning date of the MWC. The Bell’s report also pointed out that unlike the Galaxy S8 launching that happened in Marchthis past year, the smartphone maker is looking at an earlier schedule this time on account of the speedy growth of the iPhone X.
If we examine some previous rumours, the Galaxy S9 could have an improved iris scanner within the one featured on the last year’s Galaxy S8. Some recent renders claim that the flagship could have a fingerprint detector below its principal camera, very similar to the some of the lately launched models including Galaxy A8 and Galaxy A8+.
Among them both, 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 reported to possess a double camera setup. But the Galaxy S models are likely to include a 3.5mm headset jack – the one that has not been a part of the latest Google Pixel family and the iPhone range.
Koh also reportedly mention that the presence of a foldable phone from the South Korean monster sometime next year along with the access to Bixby 2.0 after this season. He is also said to have emphasized that the Bixby virtual assistant will be accessible across all Samsung devices by 2020.
