The next iteration of Samsung’s trend-setting Galaxy smartphone is expected to debut early next year

Samsung set the bar for flagship smartphones early in 2017 with its stunning Galaxy S8 and there’s no doubt the South Korean tech powerhouse is looking to do the same in 2018.

“The South Korea-based technology giant plans to introduce the new models, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus, as early as late February and release the devices as early as March, according to people familiar with the matter.

 

The company announced the S8 in March, which caught some off-guard as it traditionally reveals its new phones at the Mobile World Congress tech conference in February.

Providing this year was a one-off, we could be seeing the Samsung Galaxy S9 in as little as three months time.

There’s been no official word from Samsung, but plenty of rumours are already circulating around the internet. Alongside the Google Pixel, the Samsung Galaxy S8 has emerged as a bona fide alternative to Apple’s iPhone 8 and iPhone X phones.

 

A further report has appeared suggesting that we may see the Samsung Galaxy S9 sooner than originally thought. According to Bloomberg, there will be an event in February 2018 that will reveal the Galaxy S9 and the phone will go on sale in March.
