Samsung’s president of mobile business, DJ Koh, has already confirmed that the launch of the company’s first flagship smartphone this year will be at MWC 2018. Today, Even Blass revealed in a tweet that the company will officially unveil the phone on February 26.
According to a C-level executive at a major casemaker, the go-to-market schedule for Galaxy S9 / S9+ is as follows:
Launch – 2/26

According to Blass, a C-level executive at a major case maker said pre-orders will begin on March 1. In addition, the actual shipment and global release will be on March 16. As far as details are concerned, speculation currently pins down that the standard-sized Galaxy S9 will come with 4GB/6GB RAM and 64GB/128GB storage options. The anticipated in-display fingerprint scanner which Vivo’s upcoming flagship does have, would probably still not be integrated though, due to unaddressed technical challenges.
