The Samsung Galaxy S9 will be unveiled at Mobile World Congress this year, the company confirmed. Samsung CEO, DJ Koh told ZDNet, that the phone will be unveiled at next month’s big tech event, though Koh didn’t give any launch dates per se. Given that MWC 2018 runs between February 26 and March 1, so that’s a pretty small window. Also, looking at past years, Samsung should be unveiling the device on the first day of the event, or perhaps a day earlier.

The Galaxy S9 (and possibly the S9 Plus) are expected to sport Samsung’s Infinity Edge displays. 

That said, Samsung chose to unveil the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus last year at an event in New York, held in March. While the device was in stores by April, that was an aberration for the company. Both phones impressed buyers and critics alike, so the stakes are quite high for this year’s flagship.

The Galaxy S9 (and possibly the S9 Plus) are expected to sport Samsung’s Infinity Edge displays. The device should also have Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 chipset and an improved Iris Scanner, to take on Apple’s FaceID implementation. Some reports have said that the Galaxy S9 will use a foldable display, and though Koh didn’t say the S9 will actually have it, he reconfirmed that his company will actually launch such a phone in 2018.
