The much expected Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ were released at MWC 2018 a few days ago. Though many users are optimistic about these devices, many others are not so keen while some have even criticized Samsung for not making any real design change to the Galaxy S9 series. However, bookings for these smartphones in South Korea have started rolling in but the values are not as expected.
Reports from Samsung’s hometown, South Korea, suggests that bookings for these devices began on February 28 but the traffic is not as high as expected. The company has not released any official figure yet so nothing can be verified for now. These smartphones have not been fully rolled out so it is possible that the numbers will pick up once the official price of the devices is announced on March 6. Samsung expects Galaxy S9 series sales to outdo Samsung Galaxy S8 but analysts are not confident about the sales of Galaxy S9 series because these phones does not really bring any new innovation or design change although, it packs a better hardware compared to the S8 series.
