Samsung sends out invitations to media for Galaxy S9 unveiling on February 25th
It's getting closer, which means it is getting real. Samsung today sent out press invitations for the unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy S9, which will take place during the Samsung Unpacked event on February 25th. That is the day before the MWC trade show in Barcelona begins, traditionally when Samsung would unveil its new flagship models. However, last year Samsung pushed back the unveiling of the Galaxy S8 until March.
This year, it appears that Sammy is reverting back to its old time schedule. The invitations, which don't mention the Galaxy S9 precisely, show a big purple 9 with the words "The Camera" to the left of the numeral, and the word "Reimagined" right in the middle of the circle that lies on the top of the number 9. And yes, there are some major improvements to the handset's cameras. One new feature, called variable aperture, will allow the user to switch the 12MP rear camera between f/1.5 and f/2.4 depending on the situation. The camera also will be able to shoot super slo-mo videos at 480fps at a 1080p FHD resolution. That tops last year's models which recorded slo-mo in 240fps at 720p HD.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ are both expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 845 chipset mobile platform. The former will carry a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED display, while the latter will be equipped with a 6.2-inch Super AMOLED screen. The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will contain a 3000mAh and 3500mAh battery, respectively.
If you want to start your own countdown, we are 32 days away from the unveiling of Samsung's 2018 flagship phones. The clock is ticking.
