Samsung will unveil its “next generation of Galaxy devices” on February 25. While the announcement doesn’t explicitly say so, this is Samsung’s way of announcing the Galaxy S9’s launch date. This is also in line with rumours suggesting that the Galaxy S9 will be launched at Mobile World Congress this year. So, Samsung seems poised to headline the year’s biggest technology showcase with its flagship smartphone.
Samsung isn’t promoting the Galaxy S9 for its display or design. At least for now, Samsung’s focus for the Galaxy S9 seems to be the camera.
Interestingly, Samsung isn’t promoting the Galaxy S9 for its display or design. At least for now, Samsung’s focus for the Galaxy S9 seems to be the camera. The invite shows the number 9, following by the words, “The Camera. Reimagined”. That could point towards a rumour f/1.5 camera with 12MP sensor. In fact, Samsung is said to be working on a “Super Speed Dual Pixel” camera for the Galaxy S9, with variable f1.5/f2.4 camera.
The device is almost certainly going to run on the Snapdragon 845 chipset, along with a variant running on Samsung’s 2018 flagship Exynos chipset. It should have 4GB and 6GB RAM variants, and at least 64GB of storage inside. Samsung is also expected to provide a curved 18:9 5.8-inch QHD display on the device. The Galaxy S9 should be completely water and dust resistant as well.
