Samsung has officially marked the calendar: February 25 is the day we will meet the .
We already knew that the global technology giant was going to present its new devices during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month. But until now we did not know the exact date. And, based on recent history, Samsung will present the new phones on Sunday, February 25, on the night before the official start of the mobile technology fair in Spain.
The invitation from Samsung shows a huge purple 9 in the background, with the words, in English, “The camera, reimagined”. The invitation does not give many more keys, but it does support the rumor that indicates that the S9 will focus on improving the performance of its predecessor’s camera. It is expected that both S9 phones use two rear cameras, after the Galaxy Note 8 of 2017, the first phone of the South Korean brand to do so.
MWC, which will be held from February 26 to March 1, is an excellent opportunity for brands to present their new phones, and Samsung is usually the protagonist of the fair. But, despite its long history of presenting Galaxy devices in MWC, Samsung introduced the Galaxy S8 after MWC, in part because of the problems it had with the Note 7 battery, which forced it to postpone the introduction of its younger brother.
The rumors of the S9 and S9 Plus indicate that they will have a huge screen with almost no bezels and Qualcomm’s powerful Snapdragon 845 processor, with two rear cameras (at least in the Plus). Samsung is also expected to include its version of the Face ID facial recognition from Apple, as well as a fingerprint reader on the screen.
The Galaxy, 8 Plus and 8 of 2018. The phones will reach the market in March and will immediately consolidate at the top of the offer of Android phones, as is the custom for Samsung. LG, one of its biggest competitors in that segment, already said that it will stop updating its phones under an annual cycle and that it will not present a phone in MWC; Huawei seems that it will not bring a new device to Barcelona either.
