Galaxy S9 reveal set for MWC – report

Samsung’s Galaxy S9 is one of the most eagerly anticipated smartphones of the year, but when will we actually see it being revealed?

Now, Samsung mobile head DJ Koh told Korean press at CES that the flagship would be revealed at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, ZDNet reported.

It would mark a return to MWC for Samsung, having launched the Galaxy S7 there, but holding its own event for the Galaxy S8.

As for features, previous leaks point to more of the same for the new flagships, featuring a similar high screen/body ratio and tall screen as the 2017 models. However, serial tipster Evan Blass has claimed that the larger model will pack two cameras, while the smaller version would keep the single camera arrangement.

Blass added that the fingerprint scanners would be below the camera, while the plus model would also have more RAM.

We also know that the Galaxy S9 will use the previously revealed Exynos 9810 processor (at least in the global variants), featuring four third-gen heavyweight custom cores and four new A55 cores for lightweight tasks.
