Samsung's Galaxy X speculated to be launched in December this year

Samsung Galaxy S9 Release Date Rumors and Specifications

While the S9 has clearly given the CES a missed, fans of the Galaxy S flagship can still rejoice at the prospect of getting the device a month earlier than its usual launch window of around March.

As with last year's Galaxy A7, the screen features Samsung's always-on display mode plus IP68 water and dust resistance. Some rumors had indicated that the smartphone could debut at CES 2018, which is now in full swing in Las Vegas, but that's apparently not the case.

DJ Koh, the president of Samsung's mobile division, told ZDNet, that the device's release date will be revealed at the event with most observers anticipating that it will go on sale in March. However, we do have a confirmation of when to expect the phone; during the Mobile World Congress event that gets underway in Barcelona during February.

Despite citing 2018 the year to release a foldable device, Koh said that it will launch the device next year due to UX being the biggest obstacle in commercialisation. The Galaxy S8 belonged to the tick cycle of design refresh while Galaxy S9 will be the tock model.

The devices are also likely to vary across different regions, with the United States expected to use Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 845, while Europe is likely to make use of Samsung's own Exynos 9810 processor. The smartphone is further expected to sport Cat.

"With Galaxy A8+, we are bringing our customers' favourite features from our flagship smartphones, such as first dual-front camera with Live Focus".

At a time when Android 8.0 Oreo is the talk of the town, every smartphone owner, especially those using the likes of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy A5 2017, is eager to know when their phones will be updated to the new OS. He added that the virtual assistant will be supported by all of the company's flagship devices by 2020. We'll stay on top of any new developments, so, stay tuned for more information as soon as it becomes available.
