Historically, Samsung has unveiled most of its flagship phones at the Mobile World Congress, with the exception of Galaxy S8, which was launched at its own "Galaxy Unpacked" event.
Although there isn't anything concrete to go by when it comes to the Galaxy S9's specifications, the phone is expected to run on Samsung's Exynos 9 Series 9810 processor, which according to the company is the "most innovative mobile processor yet". With an MWC debut in February, the Galaxy S9 should hit the market sometime in March.
Its first official appearance will be an event that will take place next month so that nearly certainly means that it will be Mobile World Congress (MWC), an annual event which takes place in Barcelona and kicks off on 26 February. Samsung tends to release variants with more RAM and storage later with its flagship phones and we might not see these at launch itself. Koh said that the biggest challenge in commercialization was the UX, but Samsung is working on it. Initially, the company had chosen to talk nothing about it, but with rising rumors and leaks, the company said that it would bring a foldable smartphone anytime in 2018. Samsung Galaxy S9 will have a 5.8-inch 2K SAMOLED display, while the bigger Galaxy S9+ will continue with a 6.2-inch screen. The smartphone is further expected to sport Cat.
CES 2018 has nearly come to an end, which doesn't translate into a good news for those eagerly expecting an announcement from Samsung with regards to the next flagship smartphone - the Galaxy S9. Repeating his comments from September 2017, Koh said Samsung will reveal such a device next year.
With MWC 2018 just around the corner, more details about the Samsung Galaxy S9 will soon become available straight from the source.
