Bloomberg: Galaxy S9 and S9+ release date set for March, upgraded cameras in tow

With this latest Bloomberg report that the Galaxy S9 will be unveiled in February, we have three different sources claiming the same thing, so where there is smoke, there could be fire. The Galaxy S9 is expected to be unveiled around the time of the next Mobile World Congress expo in Barcelona, as usual. 

Samsung broke the tradition this year, announcing the S8 much later than that, but if the S9 will be the MWC 2018 showstopper, it means that we might see it announced as soon as February 25th, as Samsung usually unveils its spring flagship on the Sunday before the MWC expo starts. This would certainly jibe with the rumors that next year the Galaxy S9 may arrive earlier than its predecessor did.

Bloomberg's insiders say that the S9 and S9+ will be unveiled in February, and released a few weeks later, in March, boasting a better camera than what's currently on the Galaxy S8. We've also seen that the fingerprint scanner has been moved around a bit to accommodate your index finger, rather than the other way around like with the S8 and S8+.

I would have preferred a gap between the FPS and the camera, but this is still infinitely better that the terrible placement they had last gen.

It's a slight improvement not infinitely better. LOL. It's still pretty much the worst place for the FFS.

Dude, the S8 had the worse FPS placement of any device I can think. Centering it and pushing it down is infinitely better. Not perfect, but wayyyy better.

Get rid of the awful white balance of camera. What we see with our eyes do not have warm colors.

I want stereo speakers and a RCS interoperability among the US wireless carriers. Why is this taking so long?
