Samsung certainly had a bad time in 2016 when the South Korean technology giant was forced to eliminate the Galaxy Note 7 line-up, which is currently facing battery problems. However, it didn’t take long for them to revive their lost glory as the very next year, the firm was able to draw all the possible attention through the introduction of Galaxy S8, S8 Plus, and Note 8 smartphones. The company is speculated to launch its Galaxy S9 smartphone this year. In fact, we are quite close to the launch date as most of the rumors state that the handset will be unveiled at the CES, scheduled to take place next week.
According to a report published by Mirror, the Samsung Galaxy S9 is expected to be revealed in the month of January. It will first be unveiled at the CES event and will be launched for sale in February or March. If this turns out to be true, then it will be the first time for Samsung to introduce its smartphone so early in the year. This will certainly provide Samsung an upper hand over the rest of the companies, as consumers won’t even have the chance to compare the smartphone’s specs with its possible substitutes.
For those who assume that the Galaxy S9 smartphone will be a cheap gadget, might be in for a disappointment. It’s predecessor costs around 689 pounds. It is pretty natural for the handset to cost about the same. The smartphone is speculated to come for a price of 1,000 pounds.
Design-wise, Samsung’s Galaxy S9 line-up won’t feature too many differences. In comparison to Galaxy S8, the smartphone is expected to sport slight differences in terms of the camera placement and fingerprint scanner placement. Furthermore, the device will be powered by Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 845 system-on-chip and pack at least 4GB of RAM alongside 128GB of internal storage.
