Good news for all the gadget freaks out there. The date of the launch for Samsung Galaxy S9 has been fixed on February 25 and is definitely the much-awaited release of the year. The reason being the fact that this is thought to be a retort of the South Korean firm to Apple’s iPhone X, which had its release towards the end of 2017.

The venue the official launch has been fixed at the MWC 2018 towards the end of February.

The leaked images might as well depict of an iterative update but this S9 doesn’t look like a phone that would redefine the space. However, the leaked videos also show the Samsung Galaxy S9 in the flesh and dual cameras on the front that would be equipped with fancy new features.

One of them definitely suggests of a foldable future, and this is quite clear from the statement by Samsung which states that “as for the Mobile business, Samsung will continue its efforts to differentiate its smartphones by adopting cutting-edge technologies, such as foldable OLED displays”.

However with this Samsung also added that in regards to releasing a smartphone with a flexible OLED display, it wants to make sure that it delivers “the level of execution and completeness” to satisfy consumers’ high expectations for the product.

Apart from these, as such no other device changes are expected. But, the price won’t be low with Galaxy S9 as it is expected to be priced around like its predecessors. So, the expected price rates are like £639 / $725 / AU$1200. Lastly, pre-orders are likely to start on March 1 and the phone might be shipped in mid-March.
