Galaxy S9 expected to be a more impressive upgrade
Samsung is reportedly planning to announce its next flagship phone, the Galaxy S9, in February,
according to online sources, with the phones launching as early as March.
If true, it’d be one of the earliest announcements for a new model of Samsung’s main Galaxy
line, which have typically been announced in March and released in April in years past. As was
rumored earlier, the S9 and the accompanying S9 Plus will be more of an duplicate update than
the drastic redesign of the S8, with VentureBeat’s Evan Blass claiming that the devices will see
faster processors in the form of the recently announced Snapdragon 845, along with updated
The S9 was rumored to make an early appearance at CES in January, but later reports cast doubt
on that occurring. However, a full February reveal would split the difference between the early
CES showing and the usual March unveiling.
