Samsung’s Galaxy S8 was one of the best smartphones of 2017, and the company wants to make sure it remains in the conversation with the Galaxy S9.
The company is yet to officially reveal much about the device, but there are a couple rumors already circulating about the device.
According to reports, the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus will be unveiled in February, and go on sale in March.
Per Bloomberg, “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 new phones will be similar to the current Galaxy models, but include upgraded camera systems, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the plans are private.”
The device isn’t expected to come cheap, though it’s not expected to break the $1,000-mark like Apple’s iPhone X.
The Galaxy S8 was a beautiful phone by any standard, and Samsung is reportedly not making any major modifications, except to the back. The fingerprint scanner, whose position was an issue last time, has been moved to below the camera.
The renders also show a dual-lens camera set up, something Samsung first tried with the Galaxy Note 8.
It’s expected to pack more punch than its predecessor though, with a 4GB RAM, the latest Android operating system and much more.
