During a press conference by Samsung at the ongoing Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, the company's chief of mobile, DJ Koh, confirmed that its flagship smartphones - Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus will be announced at the upcoming Mobile World Congress. Here's what to expect.
Its first official appearance will be an event that will take place next month so that nearly certainly means that it will be Mobile World Congress (MWC), an annual event which takes place in Barcelona and kicks off on 26 February. Last year's Samsung Galaxy S8 was launched a month later than usual, though, in March, while the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge were launched at MWC 2016. We will also have to wait and see if Samsung goes for bigger batteries in the Galaxy S9 series. The device comes with most of the bells and whistles that you would otherwise have to pay a premium price for.
The newest addition to Samsung's Galaxy range of phones is not expected to be radically different from its predecessor, at least in terms of appearance.
