Earlier Galaxy S9 rumors suggested that Samsung will be unveiling the device at the ongoing CES 2018 event, while some stated that Samsung has changed its mind and will launch the device on a different event due to the fact that the iPhone X isn't as scary as Samsung first thought it would be, allowing them to fall back to the original launch schedule for the handset. Which means the Galaxy S9 would be unveiled at the MWC in late February, nearly two months later than initially believed.
Now, President of Samsung's mobile business, DJ Koh has finally broke silence and confirmed that the upcoming Galaxy S9 will be officially presented at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in February. DJ Koh also used the CES event to confirm that the second edition of the Korean tech giant's smart assistant, Bixby 2.0, will be launched in 2018 so all Samsung devices will support Bixby by 2020, he added.
In March last year, when Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ in New York, sales sprung a month later in April. Samsung is trying to accomplish the same thing with the Galaxy S9, but with an earlier release with sales expected to begin in March.
Samsung has yet to confirm the pricing for the upcoming Galaxy S9 device. But some expert says it could set you back USD 190 more than the Galaxy S8.
