It’s time for the big dogs to come out to play. The Samsung Galaxy S9 has been popping up in rumors, but we’re soon to get a lot more intimate with the device. Samsung has confirmed that they will be unveiling their first flagship phone of 2018 at Mobile World Congress in February.
That phone, of course, will be the Galaxy S9 and more than likely the Galaxy S9+ as well. Samsung will be about a month ahead of their 2017 release schedule. The Samsung Galaxy S8 was announced in late March and launched in late April. We can expect the Galaxy S9 to launch about a month after MWC.
We don’t have much in terms of rumored specs right now. Most of the rumors and leaks have been about design changes. The fingerprint scanner should finally be moved to a more comfortable location on the back. Iris scanning will be more secure so it can be used like Face ID. Otherwise, the Galaxy S9 is looking like a smaller upgrade.
