MWC 2018 kicks off on February 26, historically Samsung has launched its flagship either a day or two before the expo begins, or on the first day of it; this time the Galaxy S9 will apparently launch on February 27, so day two of the expo.
Samsung has reported that the company has no plans on launching the Galaxy S9 phones earlier as the current Galaxy devices such as Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 smartphones are doing really well in the market and making new benchmarks in various locations around the world. As per the reports, the company is going to make this phone available in March month to compete against Apple's new smartphones. While it's understandable that the less premium-model have few features, the fact that the camera in the base S9 model will likely be noticeably worse than that of its big brother is obviously a bit of a disappointment.The fingerprint scanner will also be located underneath the camera rather than offset, which is a welcome change from an S8 misstep that many customers weren't happy with. Most interesting are renders and in some cases even the dimensions, of the upcoming Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus. Check. Flash and heartbeat sensor on the right side? Are you waiting for Samsung to release the Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9 Plus before upgrading? The display will also be similar to its predecessors, with a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED quad HD display on the S9 and a slightly larger 6.2-inch version on the S9 Plus. People would love to see the devices with different variants and more choices. The phone would offer 3,100 mAh of battery capacity.More news: Angels Sign Zack Cozart to Three-Year Deal
In related news, LG, Samsung's chief rival, is expected to announce the LG K10 (2018) at the Consumer Electronics Show. We can take the rumors with a pinch of salt as of now. The Note 8 has the best display we have ever seen on a smart phone and it wins this round against the V30 Plus hands down. However, it is a matter of personal choice if you use the secondary lens for more detail as on the Note 8 or for wide angle pictures on the V30 Plus.
