In the recent years, Samsung continues to strengthen its position in the mobile market and it would not be wrong to say that it has already left its mark with its phenomenal Galaxy s Series. This alone is leading towards great expectations about its next handset which is going to be Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 plus. Both the phones have become the hottest subject in every tech community and are undoubtedly the most anticipated device this year. Speculations and rumors are revolving about the phone for a very long time now. Because apparently everybody is curious how Samsung is going to unlock greatness in its next big release. But with the confirmation of the release date, the wait almost seems to be over. But this does not stop the predictions, reviews, questions about the device. After the great success of Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 plus, the handset is expected to introduce a number of hardware and software upgrades, and possibly even a new design. Thanks to the power source of media and internet, we have collected a handsome amount of information about the soon going to release Samsung Galaxy S9.
So let’s dig in into all the solid knowledge about Samsung Galaxy S9 about its Launch and specifications,
Launch and Release Date
After an agonizing wait and patience from the people who want to buy Samsung Galaxy S9, Samsung has now confirmed the Release date.
At the exclusive CES show, Samsung’s mobile chief DJ Koh confirmed the plans for the launch date. He said
“First flagship smartphone of the year will be unveiled at the [Mobile World Congress] trade show in February with the sales date also announced at the event, at a press conference at CES in Las Vegas.”
However, the company made a wise decision of not launching the teaser at CES show 2018. Using CES as the launch pad for a ‘teaser trailer sequel’ campaign for the Samsung S9 family was a point of online discussion last year.
Although DJ Koh has not given us a specific date to look forward to rumors are that the release will take place on 26 February with pre-orders to begin just days later on 1 March. Samsung will reportedly start shipping the S9 two weeks later on 16 March.That might feel like a much shorter period than previous Galaxy S smartphones, but with no exploding batteries to investigate, the South Korean company has the confidence to return to its standard launch pattern of the last few years. However, the price of Galaxy Samsung S9 plus price in Pakistan will be decided only after all this official process so the expected buyers might have to wait until the beginning of April.
Display and Design
Last year Samsung Galaxy s8 and S8 plus faced a tough competition from Apple’s iPhone x “Never seen before design” but now the expectations are way too above for an underwhelming design and Samsung is simply not in a mood to make any mistakes. However, in the recently uploaded rendered videos and images, we can see that Galaxy S9 looks quite similar to galaxy s8 but with a twist! Some very authentic sources are predicting that this time Samsung is going to use an “unusual material” for its design which is going to be lighter and stronger at the same time.
There are mixed reviews and reactions over the speculation as of the material which is allegedly called “Metal 12” may need more development and could be difficult to execute. But is the rumors have some truth in it, then chances are that price of Samsung galaxy s9 may increase even more than expected. An image seemingly showing the Galaxy S9’s retail box has also leaked, listing a 5.8-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED screen. The biggest change could be an on-screen fingerprint scanner, which has been rumored.
Despite the fact that the real specifications can only be known once the handset has been officially launched yet the sufficient amounts of authentic leaks have left us with enough information about the Galaxy S9.
So far we can sum up all of them somewhat like this
5.8in / 6.2in QHD+ Super AMOLED curved display (570ppi / 529ppi)
– Android 8.0
– Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 (US) / Samsung Exynos (UK)
– 4GB RAM / 6GB RAM
– 64GB/128GB / 64GB/128GB/256GB storage
– Cat 18 LTE support (1.2Gbps download speeds)

We’re expecting £639 / $725 / AU$1200 based on current projections. However, Samsung Galaxy S9 price is going to mainly depend upon the differences it will have in terms of designs and specs from its previous handsets in the Galaxy S series.
