Samsung Galaxy S9 Reported to Start Selling From March 16

The next-generation flagship smartphone from South Korean giant Samsung is the Samsung Galaxy S9 and the S9+. We have covered these devices extensively, including this report two days ago when the FCC listing spelled out the model numbers. Now, several reports suggest that the new models will start selling from March 16.

Also, note that the devices will be launched at next month’s Mobile World Congress or MWC 2018, as also confirmed by Samsung’s Mobile Communications Business President, DJ Koh.

These devices are the direct successors of the Samsung Galaxy S8 range. While there is no official word on when the sales will start, noted leakster Evan Blass laid out information that a very senior executive of a “major” protective cases manufacturer has stated that the devices will be launched on the 16 of March.

In fact, the leakster has also stated that the pre-sales of these devices will start on the 1st of March. This essentially means that all those people who wish to buy these devices may start placing their orders from the 1 of March.

As of now, there is no official word on how much these devices will retail for. Nor has Samsung mentioned anything about the specs and features. Based on what we know so far, these devices will likely be extremely high-end ones. Expect thin bezels, the Infinity Display, and a dual camera setup to be present on the phones. We have previously reported how the Samsung Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ are likely to feature an improved iris scanner, as well as a fingerprint sensor pat below its primary camera.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 and the S9 Plus will be powered by the new octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC or perhaps the in-house developed Samsung Exynos 9810 SoC in some areas. These devices will run the latest Android 8.0 Oreo out-of-the-box.
