Samsung is yet to confirm when it’s going to unveil its next flagship device, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. Reports suggest that the handsets might be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress 2018 in the last week of February. If that’s true, Samsung will then release the Galaxy S9 in the following month. A report out of South Korea claims that the Galaxy S9 release will take place in early March.

Samsung isn’t expected to conduct a special launch event for next year’s flagship like it did for the Galaxy S8 in the last week of March 2017. The existing flagship was then released across the globe in mid-April.

The report claims that Samsung will start mass producing the Galaxy S9 from January and that it has already placed orders for components that will be required during the production process.

The launch is once again expected to take place at the Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona come February. The report mentions that Samsung is going to release the Galaxy S9 in early March. A precise date has not yet been revealed, though.

Recent reports suggest that the Galaxy S9 is going to look a lot like its predecessor. The Galaxy S9+ is said to feature a dual camera system at the back while the Galaxy S9 will just have a single camera. The handsets will run Android 8.0 Oreo and are expected to cost the same as the Galaxy S8 did when it was launched earlier this year.
