Samsung To Announce New Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus Flagship Smartphones In February

Before that, we have to rectify that Samsung Galaxy S9 won’t have smaller bezels as previously rumored, according to the latest leaks. Instead, it is going to sport a design similar to current Galaxy S8.

Another report today claims that Samsung is planning to unveil its next-generation flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ in February of 2018, not in early January. It seems like Samsung is very much eager to introduce a competitor to the Apple’s iPhone X.

The two devices could be unveiled as early as late February with a launch following in early March. And at the same time when the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus were unveiled last year, rather in March and released in April.

Insider news from China suggesting that Samsung has ditched an early Galaxy S9 prototype which included a screen-to-body ratio of over 90%. Where the Galaxy S8 left off but with the introduction of even smaller bezels. It now appears that the South Korean Electronics going in a slightly different direction with the launch of upcoming Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 next year.

Also said, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ are to be very similar to the current Galaxy models that are available right now, but with upgraded camera systems, a vertical cutout maybe perfect.

And the two smartphones will likely also include upgraded processors and will continue to offer features like fingerprint recognition, facial recognition, and iris scanning. A feature equivalent to iPhone X’s Face ID, which is not likely to be available, however, as Android manufacturers are further behind on development of 3D facial recognition techniques.

Coming straight to the point that the embedded images give an immediate example of the differences between the device that was expected Samsung would go to market with during the Q2 of 2018, and the device which is now believed will represent the actual Galaxy S9 at launch.

Both devices (Galaxy S9 / S9+) look largely similar but with the early S9 prototype making significant efforts to reduce the bottom chin bezel when compared to S8 and S8+ design. Now that what appears to be the same bezels on the top, bottom and sides of the Super AMOLED display as it was with Galaxy S8.

Galaxy S9 rumored design that is now said to have been scrapped.

If it’s accurate, the new design would eventually give a screen-to-body ratio of approximately 85-percent, which is relatively similar to Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and S8+. There’s no exact suggestion that the display will have an embedded fingerprint reader either, suggesting that once again Samsung will opt for the rear-mounted solution it has favored in the past and coming complete with a more blocked design which is being offered with the Galaxy Note 8.

Galaxy S9 is expected to look like Galaxy S8 as shown here.

Finally, the Galaxy S9 looks very much likely to be an incremental update to the Galaxy range. Rumors about Samsung’s plans something a bit more significant in 2019 with the release of the Galaxy S10, where we might get the first glimpse of the Face ID-competitor that may have said the company is working on.

One thing is literal, Samsung’s upcoming smartphones will directly compete with Apple’s latest flagship iPhone, the iPhone X. The Galaxy S9 still looks like a gorgeous handset, though, if Samsung’s pedigree is anything to go by. So the Galaxy S9 is likely to be one of the most popular handsets of next year if everything goes in the right direction. Stay tuned for more details.
