We can now confirm that the Galaxy S9 and its variants will be unveiled a few hours to the official Kick off of the MWC 2018. Reports coming in say Samsung has started sending out press invites for its impending event, where it will possibly showcase the Galaxy S9 and a host of other devices.
The Samsung press invite for the MWC merely reveals that the company will be holding its press briefing on Feb. 25, the same date HMD Global has set outside for its media briefing. The invite, while not specific on the device that will be the star of the day shows the number 9 with the words: “The Camera. Reimagined”. So it’s quite obvious the company will be unveiling the Galaxy S9 with a revamped camera system.
Based on what we know so far, the Galaxy S9 will be very much similar to its predecessor with 18.5:9 Infinity displays with slightly reduced bezels. The device is expected to retain the rear Fingerprint sensor but positioned right below the rear camera.
The US variant of the device will be powered by the Snapdragon, while other markets will get the variant with the Exynos 9 Series 9810 chipset with 4GB RAM, and 64GB storage.
The device will be heading to the US on March 16th but will be available for pre-order a day after the unveiling.
