Details on Samsung"s Galaxy S9 are starting to crystallize.
At CES 2018 Samsung"s mobile leader DJ Koh confirmed the company"s next flagship Android phone will be announced at next month"s Mobile World Congress, and now we may know exactly when you"ll be allowed to get the most envisioned device.
Prolific phone leaker Evan Blass has shared what he claims are several Galaxy S9-related propel appointments, provided to him from a "C-level executive at a major bag maker".
Blass"s intel intimates the Galaxy S9 will be announced on Feb. 26. Pre-orders will start on March 1 and then acre in interested pass on March 16.
According to a C-level executive at a major casemaker, the go-to-market schedule for Galaxy S9/ S9+ is as follows:
Launch - 2/26
Pre-orders - 3/1
Ships/ exhausts - 3/16

The timeline aligns neatly with Koh"s own evidence -- Mobile World Congress starts on Feb. 26 and major telephone edicts are frequently announced at the start of the show.
Though there"s been a steady dripping of Galaxy S9 leakages over the last few months, more detailed information have popped up online since. And depending on the way in which you thoughts your phone refurbishes, you"ll either be excited or disappointed at what"s coming.
An alleged Galaxy S9 container posted to Imgur and shared by Benjamin Geskin, another well-connected telephone leaker, shows the Galaxy S9 will come with a 5.8 -inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED spectacle, 64 GB of storage, and 4GB of RAM. The S9 is also expected to come in a plus-sized edition with a 6.2 -inch screen.
The biggest ascents could be made to the cameras and the audio. If the box details are gonna be felt, the Galaxy S9 could come with a "Super Speed Dual Pixel" 12 -megapixel camera with visual persona stabilization and "Super Slow-mo" capture( potentially up to 960 fps ).
It"s been rumored the S9 would finally get dual back cameras and the alleged box apparently confirms the feature, scheduling two camera apertures: f/ 1.5 and f/ 2.4. The f/ 1.5 camera gap is particularly interesting because it would make it the fastest camera lens in a phone( even faster than the f/ 1.6 camera aperture that"s found in phones like the LG G6 ). For non-techies, the faster lens translates to even better low-light photos and potentially better "bokeh"( background blur) for Portrait-style photos.
The box also recommends the S9 will have stereo orators -- a first for any Samsung flagship -- to join the iPhone X"s.
Other details are in-line with previous holes and reports, including an 8-megapixel selfie camera, IP68 water and dirt fighting, wireless accuse, and headphones by AKG.
Anatel, a Brazilian telecommunications enterprise( it"s like their form of the Federal Communcations Commission ), has also reportedly divulged battery life info: 3,000 mAh for the S9 and maybe 3,500 mAh for the larger S9 +.
These details cover a nice tame Galaxy S9 phone with the majority changes happening on the inside. But that"s not definitely a bad happen. As Apple has proven with the iPhone, you don"t requirement a complete redesign every year in order to amaze. Sometimes inner beauty is all this is necessary. Most beings exactly require a better camera and longer battery life.
