Samsung is officially announcing the long-awaited Galaxy S9 smartphone on February 25th, at a special event at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
It’s pretty minimalistic, but it contains one big hint as to what this event holds. For starters, there’s the big 9, which seems to give the game away.
Otherwise, the only thing we have to go on is the tagline: “The camera. Reimagined.” This tracks with a leak earlier this month, holding that the the biggest difference between the previous S8 and the new S9 will be found in the camera.
Thanks to what appears to be a leaked retail box for the Galaxy S9, we can guess that the internals of the device will be similar to its forebear, but carry new camera features, including “super slow-mo” and “super speed” features for the rear camera, and the AKG-tuned stereo speakers. The relatively weak front-facing speakers were among people’s biggest complaints with last year’s Galaxy S8.
Of course, that assumes that the leak is accurate. We’ll know for sure when the Galaxy S9 is officially introduced in Spain on February 25th, so stay tuned.
