Samsung rolling out what is possibly the last Galaxy S8/S8

The company also announced its plans to launch bendable phones in 2019.

The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will purportedly sport the same 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch dual-curved, edge-to-edge Super AMOLED "Infinity Display" as the Galaxy S8 and S8+, respectively.

Most of the rumours and reports suggest that the most noticeable cosmetic change will be a redesign of the fingerprint scanner, which was small and awkwardly positioned on the S8.

For those who came in late, the Galaxy X handset is to be Samsung's first foldable handset. Both the sensors enable the Galaxy A8+ to provide blurred background in images with a Bokeh effect.

As for the camera, the Samsung Galaxy A8+ sports a 16-megapixel primary camera with an aperture of f/1.7. The phone has 4GB RAM, 64GB of internal storage, 256GB expandable memory slot, Android Nougat operating system and a 3,300 mAh battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0.

With this confirmation, the new flagships will be successors to the company's 2017 flagships the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. Bezel-less phones are the future and with Samsung gunning to make them more affordable, that future seems closer than it ever was. India will get the Exynos version.

DJ Koh, Samsung's mobile chief, has confirmed that the Galaxy S9 will be debuting at MWC.

The devices will have different camera setups, the Galaxy S9 will apparently come with a single 12 megapixel camera and the S9 Plus with dual 12 megapixel cameras.

The company has skipped the dual-camera setup at the rear panel.

It is not long for MWC so we don't really have to wait long enough to see what Samsung has in store for us. Some rumors had indicated that the smartphone could debut at CES 2018, which is now in full swing in Las Vegas, but that's apparently not the case.

Koh didn't share any additional details about the phone, except that the sales date will be revealed at the launch event in February as well.
