The Samsung Galaxy S8 hit stores in early 2017, so it makes sense that we’re hearing about the Samsung Galaxy S9, as it might only be months away.
Samsung Galaxy S9 price and release date
We so far know nothing official about when the Samsung Galaxy S9 will be announced, but one leak suggests it’ll be ready to go at MWC 2018 in February 2018. We’ve also heard another rumor pointing to a late February announcement.
Samsung Galaxy S9 design
Recently we’ve seen both a render video and rendered images supposedly showing the Samsung Galaxy S9, and they show a device that looks very similar to the Samsung Galaxy S8, albeit with the fingerprint scanner moved beneath the camera lens (but not in-screen as some rumors have suggested).
The front and back both look to use curved glass, the bezels are small and there’s both a 3.5mm headphone port and what’s presumably a Bixby button.
Samsung Galaxy S9 Camera
- 1,000fps video recording
- A 3D face scanner
- A single-lens camera
When it comes to the camera. The Samsung Galaxy S9 is rumored to be able to shoot some incredible slow motion video. Industry is working on a rear camera that can shoot at 1,000 frames per second. Which would be better than anything on the market in a phone right now.

- A bigger, more efficient battery
We haven’t heard much battery news, but one of the big chipset developments may allow the company to include a much bigger battery. A report suggests Samsung will now use Substrate-like PCB tech that will allow the Exynos chipset manufacturer to include a bigger battery without increasing the size of the processor.
Samsung Galaxy S9 OS and power
- Snapdragon 845 or Exynos 9810 chipset
- Just 4GB of RAM
