Samsung Galaxy S9 to launch on 25th February


Samsung will unveil its long awaited Galaxy S9 in Barcelona on 25th February, a day before Mobile World Congress (MWC) gets underway in the Catalan city.

In a teaser video posted on its official Twitter feed, Samsung said its latest Unpacked event would ‘change how you experience everything’.

That bold claim appears to relate to the device’s camera, which Samsung has said will be reimagined on the Galaxy S9.

Recent rumours suggest the snapper will be able to switch between f/1.5 and f/2.4 apertures, a feature usually found on standalone compact cameras.

Earlier this month, Samsung Mobile's DJ Koh promised that the Galaxy S9 would be on show at MWC, with the Korean company revealing its release date at the annual event.

Other features are said to include an improved screen to body ratio and tweaks to the device’s fingerprint scanner, as well as enhanced facial recognition security.

The latter will be part of a bid to boost the S9 in light of the iPhone X’s market–leading Face ID.
