Samsung Galaxy S9 confirmed to launch next month at MWC 2018

DJ Koh, Samsung's president of mobile business, confirmed to ZDNet at CES that the company will unviel its much-rumored Galaxy S9 flagship at the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) event in February.

Samsung's Galaxy S9 has been a topic of conflicting rumors over the past couple of months; while it was initially rumored to launch at the ongoing CES event, those rumors were squashed by the company's representatives. They were, however, followed by a rumored unveiling at MWC 2018, with the handset hitting retail shelves a month later. The alleged devices have also made an appearance at the FCC.

As noted before, the device is expected to look quite a bit similar to the current Galaxy S8, but with a repositioned fingerprint sensor, based on renders from case makers.

Its rumored internal specifications boast top-of-the-line specifications on board, including a 5.8-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED display, 4 or 6GB of RAM, a Snapdragon 845 processor, a 12MP camera with f/2.4 aperture, an 8MP front-facing camera, an iris scanner, and a 3,100 mAh battery with support for Quick Charge 2.0.
