All we got before about Samsung’s Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ was their release date and if the previous rumor needs to be trusted, you could see both phones getting announced during February, which to remind you is most likely going to be in Barcelona because that is where the Mobile World Congress 2018 trade show is going to be held.
While the announcement date is something that the press would be interested in, potential buyers would want to know what is going to be the release date of both phones. According to Bloomberg, sources claim that Samsung will not be wasting precious time to release its Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 8.
“The South Korea-based technology giant plans to introduce the new models, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus, as early as late February and release the devices as early as March, according to people familiar with the matter. That schedule would be a month earlier than for the current Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus. The new phones will be similar to the current Galaxy models, but include upgraded camera systems, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the plans are private.”
These sources have not been named, but claim that the launch for Samsung is going to be a pivotal one because it will come with upgraded cameras and features that might give buyers more appeal to purchase than the $999-priced iPhone X.
“The launch will be a significant one for Samsung, potentially serving as a way for the phone maker to continue strong global momentum despite the appeal of the new top-of-the-line iPhone X and a forecast of a dip in market share. Samsung’s new models will present Cupertino, California-based Apple with formidable rivals just months into the iPhone X’s life cycle.”
This is quite early for a flagship from Samsung, but it is for the best knowing the competition the company is going to be up against.
