Samsung Galaxy S9 release date and features: All you need to know

The Samsung Galaxy S9 is the biggest flagship phone version for the company and we look forward to seeing it next month. So what will change from the Galaxy S8 and the iPhone X, are you worried? Let’s see.

Samsung-Galaxy-S9 invite

Samsung gave a glimpse of it’s new handset the Samsung Galaxy S9 in a tweet. The power of the Samsung has moved and is arguably the most successful Android phone manufacturer of the year. The company constantly produces high quality flagship phones that are well examined in our own tests and showed up successful; for this reason we are excited to see what will happen in the future.

The working theory is that Samsung plans to launch a new high end phone called the Samsung Galaxy S9 at the beginning of 2018 – we will find more detailed information in this article. The handset is expected to introduce a range of hardware and software upgrades, and even introduce a new design.

In a new tweet, Blass stated that the Galaxy S9 – as we specially anticipated – will be unveiled at MWC 2018 in Barcelona. However, we think that the big gap can actually happen one day before Blass’s thought on February 25, 2018.

Why? When Blass points to a Samsung event on February 26th, the nature of the mobile accessory supply chain means that its mysterious content is likely to be near Samsung’s South Korean base. Due to the time difference, an evening event in Barcelona on Sunday, February 25th will be held on Monday, February 26th, in the morning of February 26th in Seoul, and for this reason it makes sense.

The overwhelming majority of the Samsung Galaxy S phone announcements take place in February or March, with years of escalating upgrades (such as 2018), often overlapping with Barcelona’s annual Mobile World Congress technology fair. Also, the show takes place the day before the public opening; so Samsung and the last flagship can enjoy it remarkably.

Expected features in new Samsung Galaxy S9:

  • New enhanced camera

  • Modular design

  • New colors
