Samsung Galaxy S9 will launch at Mobile World Congress

Samsung chief says on–sale date will be announced at Barcelona event next month.

Samsung will launch its long–awaited Galaxy S9 and S9+ at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona in February.

The news was confirmed by Samsung’s mobile chief DJ Koh during the company’s press conference at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Reports had suggested the pair of new devices would be teased during the latter event. However, Koh said that Samsung was holding the S9 and S9+ back until February, when it will also reveal the official on–sale date.

MWC starts on 26th February, with Samsung likely to hold its own special gathering the day before the main event starts.

Various reports have suggested that the Galaxy S9 and S9+ will keep the same all–screen design as last year’s S8, with changes restricted to how the rear fingerprint is configured and plans for a dual lens camera on the S9+.

Samsung is also believed to be improving facial security in a bid to take on the iPhone X’s Face ID system.
