Samsung Galaxy S9 – Official day & price

The Samsung Galaxy S9 will be the most awaited phone until the next Iphone release. Now we know when it will be officially presented.

The latest launch information came from an unofficial source, indicating February 26. Meanwhile, Samsung sent official invitations and aslo announced the day: February 25th. It’s still an ‘unpacked’ event. Thus, February 26 remains the first day of the MWC 2018 (with press-only access). The event will be in Barcelona. Most likely, it will be available at Samsung’s stand just from February 27th.

The design doesn’t change from the Samsung Galaxy S8, but the camera is the most praised so far. Camera details have appeared on the company’s website in an article about the new ISOCELL sensors. As you can see in the image created for the event, the camera is in the spotlight. Samsung claims that such a sensor allows cameras to record full HD at 480 FPS (frames per second). The same sensor should also have the Super Phase Detection function, which will give phones better focusing speeds.

Unlike other years, when all the technical details before the official presentation came to light, this time the information about the new top is significantly lower.
The S9 Plus will be the first model in the Galaxy S series that will offer a dual camera system – a technology that other manufacturers have adopted two years ago but which did not bring a qualitative leap.
