Introducing the new Samsung Galaxy S9: out March 2018

Samsung will launch its new Galaxy S9 and S9+ flagship pair of smartphones, the follow-up to the popular Galaxy S8 range, in Barcelona on 25 February.

The new Samsung Galaxy S9 will launch in late February and by mid March it should be on sale. The Galaxy S9 is expected to have a 5.77-inch edge to edge display. The S9+ model will be slightly larger, possibly at 6.22-inch.

Currently the technology circles believe the Galaxy S9 is going to be an upgrade rather than a total redesign. This means better fingerprint sensor placement for example, Galaxy S8 users often smudge the camera lens when using this function. Another anticipated change is to the camera, Samsung has said, if a picture is worth a thousand words, the latest member of the Galaxy family has a lot to say, hinting it will incorporate Isocell camera sensors into the Galaxy S9. Isocell supports fast autofocus abilities that help to hone in on fast-moving objects, even in dim light. This upgrade enables the Galaxy S9 to have DSLR-like photo experiences.

The battery life is said to push beyond the 20 hour mark. This will be a huge advantage compared to the S8 which give 16 hours of usage time. The Galaxy S9 will also have fast charging ability, with just 15 minutes of charging, the phone will have 50% battery power.

What will the Samsung Galaxy S9 price be?

We were expecting £639 / $725 / AU$1200 – the same as the Galaxy S8 – to be the price of the new phone, but an industry insider has now told us the price will be upped to £789 in the UK. That may mean price hikes for other markets too.
