Just a week or two ago, Samsung established that it will uncover the brand new Galaxy S9 at the MWC 2018 next month, which is exactly when what expected.
Early rumors about the brand new smartphone did say that the phone could be revealed in early January at CES, as Samsung wanted to counter the iPhone X with a brand new smartphone as soon as possible.
As we got to know more closely about the trade show, however, it became clear that Samsung would not be announcing the handset. The company never issued any Unpacked press event invitations to the media, and fresh rumors said the phone would be announced only in the next month, that is February.
One of the trustworthy leakers now has genuine Samsung Galaxy S9 Release date rollout schedule, including dates for the announcement ceremony, preordering, and the exact in-store release.
Evan Blass said on Twitter Tuesday, in the morning that a C-level executive at a major case maker offered him the “go-to-market schedule” for the Galaxy S9 brand new smartphones:
According to the unnamed executive who leaked the news, Samsung will be coming up with the Galaxy S9 on February 26th, which is going to be the first day of this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC). The date is slightly odd though, contemplating that Samsung announced previous Galaxy S models one day before the trade show actually kicked off.
ZDNet report had suggested that the sale date for Samsung Galaxy S9 series will be announced at the event.
MWCs always starts on the first day of the week, that is Monday, with Samsung’s presser taking place on Sunday, in the evening (local time). Maybe Samsung’s first Unpacked press event of this new year is scheduled for February 25th rather than the 26th. We are not really sure about it right now.
Preorders would be available online from the first week of March probably, with the new Galaxy S9 to be delivered to the customers on Friday, March 16th, accurately a month from today. That’s also the day when the phone will be available in stores in different markets around the world, according to this rumor we have got today.
These dates actually make sense to us because if we consider what Samsung did with previous Galaxy S models, this is nothing new. But they’re not official, so do not just start having too much of expectations right now about buying the next best thing from the Samsung stores.
