Recent reports have suggested that Samsung may showcase the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ flagships behind closed doors to its partners at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018 that will be held in January at Las Vegas. According to a South Korean publication, Samsung has said that it is unlikely to unveil the Galaxy S9 duo at the CES 2018.
Samsung has used the Mobile World Congress (MWC) platform to unveil the Galaxy S5, Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S7 smartphones. However, the unforeseen Galaxy Note 7 issues caused the company to launch the Galaxy S8 through its own launch event in March this year. Hence, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ are rumored to get unveiled at the MWC 2018.
Some reports have claimed that the South Korean company will be holding a launch event for the Galaxy S9 duo a day prior to the MWC 2018 that will be beginning on Feb. 26. Hence, the Galaxy Unpacked 2018 event may be held on Feb. 25.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 is expected to arrive with similar design as the Galaxy S8. However, it will be coming with improved specs and functions. The Galaxy S8’s Infinity Display design offered 84 percent screen-to-body ratio. However, the Galaxy S9 is speculated to deliver a higher screen-to-body ratio of nearly 90 percent through its Infinity Display. Its rear-mounted fingerprint scanner will be placed below the dual rear cameras.
