It’s confirmed that Samsung will unveil their upcoming flagship Galaxy S9 series smartphones at MWC 2018 in February. Evan Blass has tweeted the exact launch date for the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9 Plus along with their pre-order dates and the day they start shipping.

Blass cites a “C-level executive at a major casemaker” as his source. As per the report, the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus will be launched on February 26, 2018, and the preorders will commence starting March 1. The devices will reportedly start shipping from March 16, however, the information should be taken with a pinch of salt. Until Samsung confirms anything, they are rumours.

DJ Koh, Samsung’s Mobile division head, confirmed at CES 2018 that the Galaxy S9 series smartphones will be showcased at MWC 2018 in Barcelona. Going by the rumours on the internet, the smartphones could be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC in the US and are expected to be launched running on the company's latest Exynos 9810 SoC for other regions. A previous leak from  Brazil's National Telecommunications Agency (ANATEL) listing tipped that both the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus could sport same battery capacity as their predecessors, the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus.

The Galaxy S9 is rumoured to sport a 5.8-inch quad HD+ Super AMOLED display and come with an 8MP front-facing camera with an iris scanner feature. It could come with 4GB of RAM coupled with 64GB of internal storage. An image of the smartphone’s retail box was also leaked recently, on which the printed specifications tip at a dual main camera setup with variable aperture, similar to a flip phone which was launched by the company in China. The flip phone’s camera setup had a variable aperture between f/2.4 and f/1.5 for improved low light photography.

Additionally, the smartphone could support “super slo-mo” video recording, which will reportedly capture super slow motion videos at 1,000 fps. If this is the case, the Galaxy S9 will surpass the 960fps benchmark set last year by the Sony Xperia XZ Premium. The Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus are expected to be IP68 water resistant and the stereo speakers on the devices are tipped to be “tuned by AKG”. You can read more about the smartphone here.
