Samsung confirms Galaxy S9 will debut at Mobile World Congress next month

Not CES, as some predicted By Rob Thubron  on Jan 10, 2018, 10:33 AM

When Samsung certified its Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus handsets with the FCC last month, it was suggested that the phones would be unveiled at Spain’s Mobile World Congress rather than CES, which ends on Friday. Now, the Korean firm’s mobile boss has confirmed this: the devices will be debuted at Barcelona and not Las Vegas.

DJ Koh confirmed the news to ZDNet at CES, though he never gave a specific date for the launch event. Mobile World Congress runs from February 26th to March 1, but some companies hold press conferences on the weekend before the conference starts.

Last March, Samsung decided to hold a dedicated Unpacked event in New York to reveal the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, with the devices going on sale in April. As the timelines seem to have been put back a month for 2018, it's likely that sales of the S9 and S9 Plus will begin in March this year, the same month the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge (also unveiled at MWC) launched in 2016. Koh said the release dates for the new handsets would be announced next month.

The mobile boss also spoke about Samsung's foldable phone, confirming that the company plans to launch the device sometime next year. He added that the UX was proving the biggest obstacle in commercialization, but hoped that production would start in late 2018.

Additionally, Koh said a new version of Samsung’s AI would be launched this year. Bixby 2.0 will be here sometime in the next twelve months and will be supported on all Samsung devices, which presumably includes the likes of TVs and laptops, by 2020.

Foldable phone should be interesting.

Even Nokia and Apple are making their versions in near future.

There are many people on the web with creative ideas creating all these concept phones, but doubt the phone makers will take a pinch of the ideas from there.  [laugh]

personally I think the idea of a transparent phone is unworkable ... visibility is going to be a huge challenge for both the manufacturer and the user.

 

but the concept sony note is good.

Since Samsung has confirmed that it would be announcing the Galaxy S9 next month, mass production of the phone should have started and this inevitably means more leaks from the supply chain. 

A purported retail box of the Galaxy S9 has surfaced on Reddit and reveals most of its specs. In line with a previous rumor, the Galaxy S9 is stated to come with a 5.8-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED display. What's more interesting is the new rear camera, which is marketed as "Super Speed Dual Pixel 12MP OIS (F1.5/F2.4)".

 

The new camera sensor is likely to be from one of the four sub-brands of ISOCELL. It is believed to support variable aperture; f/1.5 will come in handy for low light photography while f/2.4 can be used in normal lighting conditions. The camera sensor is also likely to support 1,000 fps for the "Super Slow-Mo" feature. 

Other specs listed on the retail box include an 8MP selfie camera, IP68 water/dust resistance, iris scanner, 4GB RAM, 64GB internal storage space, wireless charging support, and bundled earphones tuned by AKG.
