Galaxy S9 will be unveiled ahead of MWC, says tipster

Samsung could release the Galaxy S9 a little earlier than expected, according to a reliable tipster, who expects it to be unveiled ahead of Mobile World Congress in February, though the same rumor makes the rounds every year—so best take it with a pinch of salt.

That’s not to say it doesn’t seem feasible, though. It was recently reported that the Galaxy S9 could mass production as soon as next month. If that turns out to be the case, there’s a chance it will hit the shelves by the time Mobile World Congress comes around.

The tipster also noted that Samsung has copied some of the iPhone X’s “tricks” for the Galaxy S9. We don’t know exactly what the source is referring to, but we’d bet our bottom dollar it has something to do with a complex face recognition feature that can rival Apple’s Face ID.

February technically won’t be an early launch

If the Galaxy S9 is announced before Mobile World Congress, it technically won’t be an early launch; both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S7 were unveiled ahead of the conference. It’s only the Galaxy S8 that was unveiled a little later, because Samsung was dealing with the Galaxy Note 7 disaster.

In the first Alinea we say take this with a pinch of salt as this always happen every year.

It is news because this twitter source has been reliable in the past.

Makes sense that it won’t be delayed, it’ll basically be an S8 with small changes like a dual camera, better fingerprint scanner location in the back and 3D face scanning (the iPhone X trick that the tipster mentioned). The S9/S9+ displays will be the same size as the S8/S8+ (no iPhone X notch), and I doubt that Samsung would ruin symmetry by getting rid of the bottom bezel.

Exactly! S9 = improved S8 with updated features. Save the new design for the Galaxy S10 or Galaxy SX instead.

Sure as hell it’s not the 5-year support window.

Seriously, I’ve been following Sammobile for years, and every year its the same story. the device will always be released in March/April time. never before. no matter how many times , year after year it is rumoured; its just not going to happen. releasing a device much less than a year before its predecessor is a bad move for any company! jus remember the Xperia Z3/Z3+/Z4. Sony was releasing them 6 months after the previous model – OnePlus and their T series now, doing the same. It just gives them excuses to not support “older” models.

A realistic battery size will be 3300mAh and 3700mAh for the S9 and S9+ respectively – if they want to keep the slim form factor and headphone jack
