Galaxy S9 could be previewed at CES in January, launched in March

Samsung is planning to preview the much-anticipated Galaxy S9 at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada in January, with a launch event scheduled to take place in March—as it did for the Galaxy S8—reports VentureBeat.

The Galaxy S9, according to reliable tipster Evan Blass, will sport a near-identical design to the Galaxy S8, though it will benefit from a repositioned fingerprint sensor and an updated rear-facing camera setup.

Both the Galaxy S9 (SM-G960) and Galaxy S9+ (SM-G965) are rumored to come with identical Infinity Displays to their predecessors—5.8- and 6.2-inches, respectively. They’re also expected to feature the same 64GB of expandable storage.

They should, however, pack an improved Exynos 9810/Snapdragon 845 processor and AKG-tuned stereo speakers, while the plus-sized variant will have 6GB of RAM as standard (versus 4GB) and a vertically-mounted, rear-facing dual-camera.

Samsung’s working on a new DeX docking station

VentureBeat also noted that the firm is working on a backward-compatible DeX docking station that lets you use the handset’s screen as a touchpad or virtual keyboard when it’s laying flat, eliminating the need to carry a mouse and keyboard.
