    Galaxy S9 release date revealed by leaked press image

    Samsung sent out invitations earlier this week to confirm that it's going to unveil the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ at February 25 at the Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona. The company will officially reveal the Galaxy S9 release date at the event but a fresh leak today from a reputable source has possibly made the Galaxy S9 release date public.

    Galaxy S9 release date

    Evan Blass or @evleaks is a well known Twitter leakster and he has published a purported press image of the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ today. It merits mentioning here that the leaks from Blass have quite often been accurate.

    The accompanying report claims that the Galaxy S9 release date is March 16 as highlighted by the image. We usually see Samsung highlight the announcement date of an upcoming handset in its official press images, not the release date, so there's a possibility that this might not be the final version of the press image that Samsung will use.

    Or perhaps Samsung will start putting the release date on press images now, starting with the Galaxy S9. A leak is a leak regardless of how reputable the source is, it's not in the same league as an official confirmation. It's all purely speculative at this point in time.

    We already know what to expect from the Galaxy S9 and its larger sibling. Samsung has retained the 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch display size of the predecessors with the same 18.5:9 aspect ratio. The design itself is quite similar to the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+.

    The report also offers some information about the RAM and storage variants of the upcoming devices. The Galaxy S9 is said to offer the same 4GB RAM and 64GB storage pairing from last year while the Galaxy S9+ might offer 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

    The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will both feature a primary 12-megapixel rear camera with variable aperture that will automatically switch between f/2.4 and f/1.5 aperture for optimal imaging performance. The camera reportedly supports motion-detected “super slow-mo” video capture, it will trigger 480fps recording at 720p.

    Since the Galaxy S9+ has a dual camera system, it's said to feature a secondary 12-megapixel rear module with a fixed aperture. The dual camera is aligned vertically at the back with the fingerprint sensor placed underneath. Both handsets have an 8-megapixel front camera. They're also said to feature stereo speakers.

    Samsung will officially announce the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ on February 25 and confirm when the new flagship will be released and what it will cost. We'll be on the ground at MWC 2018 in Barcelona to bring you all of the latest updates from the event.
