Yesterday at CES 2018, DJ Koh — the smartphone chief at Samsung — told ZDNet that the successor to last year’s Samsung Galaxy S8 would be launched at this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC). This event is slated to run from February 26th to March 1st. Most likely, we’ll see this new phone be announced during those dates.
Last year’s S8 and S8 Plus devices were well received among phone reviewers, and the YourTechExplained team was a fan of this device as well. The design and cameras on the phone are fantastic as they have been for the past several years, but hopefully this year we’ll see some welcome improvements. These include a different position for the fingerprint scanner (possibly under the camera), and hopefully a reprogrammable Bixby button (if any).
At this time, we don’t know much about the S9. All we have are a couple of leaked renders, but it is expected that the overall design will remain the same, as it has for the past several years. Now, the S9 is not the only device we can expect from Samsung this year. There’s a rumored foldable phone, and of course we’ll likely see the Note 9 launch later this year.
Stay tuned to YourTechExplained for the latest on the Galaxy S9. We’ll be sharing more details as soon as they’re released!
