The CES 2018 will not be the stage for the announcement of the Galaxy S9, as some rumors pointed out, but that does not mean that it will take time for news: at a press conference held at the fair, DJ Koh, mobile head of the South Korean giant Samsung has reportedly confirmed that the device will be presented at the Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona. The event is scheduled for the last week of February.
Visually, the Galaxy S9 should not change much compared to the Galaxy S8. In specs, it is almost certain that the model will bring the new Samsung Exynos 9810 processor (and Snapdragon 845 in the United States), an iris scanner, a 3D sensor for face unlocking and fingerprint reader below the rear camera (not on the side of the back camera).
According to the latest rumblings, the Galaxy S9 should still have 64GB and 128GB versions for internal storage, a 5.65-inch Super AMOLED screen, 12-megapixel rear camera with a single sensor, 8-megapixel front camera, and a 3100 mAh battery.
The Galaxy S9+ will also be released, as it could not fail to be. However, the rumours are that the device will not simply be a larger version of the Galaxy S9. It is expected that in addition to 6.2-inch screen and 3.600 mAh battery, the model will bring 6GB of RAM and dual rear camera along with the whopping internal storage of 512GB for example.
Last year, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ were announced in March and released about a month later. If this logic is maintained (probably will be), the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will hit the shelves in late March this year.
