    This year, Samsung will be returning to the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona to unveil its latest Galaxy S flagship, after a slight departure from the usual schedule for the Galaxy S8 announcement last year. The company has said as much, and a new leak is now shedding some light on the exact dates Samsung has chosen to unveil the Galaxy S9, kick off pre-orders, and put it up for sale.

    Galaxy S9 and S9+ could go on sale by March 16

    Popular leakster evleaks says a “C-level executive at a major casemaker” has revealed that the Galaxy S9 and S9+ will be launched on February 26th. Pre-orders will go live on March 1, and the phones will be up for sale starting March 16th. If you're thinking the launch date is a little off, you're not wrong. Samsung usually unveils its Galaxy S flagship a day before MWC officially kicks off, but if evleaks' information is correct, the Korean giant could be planning on taking the limelight away from other phones that will be on display at the event.

    The pre-orders and shipping schedule sounds much more plausible and in line with how Samsung has been doing things in recent years. Our own sources have heard that the March 16th release is correct, although these dates would be for the US and/or South Korea, and the S9 and S9+ are likely to take a few more days to hit other markets. There's not a lot of time left for MWC 2018, however, so it's possible things will change or are already a bit different than what has been revealed by the leak.
