Samsung is gearing up to launch its flagship Galaxy S-series smartphones in 2018. Samsung has confirmed that the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ at MWC 2018 in Barcelona. Meanwhile, ahead of its release on February 25, cases of the alleged Galaxy S9+ have leaked on the internet.
It suggests that the Galaxy S9+ will look almost identical to the Galaxy S8+, but, with a re-positioned fingerprint scanner which will be below the camera module instead of being adjacent to it. Also, Samsung may not have given up on the dedicated Bixby button since, in the leaks, one can clearly make out that the Galaxy S9+ will have a physical Bixby button on the same place as the Galaxy S9. Hopefully, Samsung would let you remap it this time round.
Samsung is set to host its Galaxy Unpacked event in Barcelona on February 25 where it will launch the flagships for the global market. Price and availability specifics are expected to be announced at Unpacked and the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ should land in India soon after, hopefully sometime in March. Samsung is planning to incorporate a significantly upgraded camera on the upcoming phones. Previous rumours have pointed towards the new ISOCELL module that Samsung launched back in October last year.
The Galaxy S9+ may also arrive with a 512GB storage option in a special variant meant for limited markets. The Galaxy S9 is said to have 4GB RAM while the Galaxy S9+ is said to have 6GB of RAM, with 64GB and 128GB as the standard storage option.
