Alongside the Galaxy S9, the company will also roll out Bixby 2.0 this year, which is promised to have better integration with devices and include third-party support as well.

Samsung's Mobile Communications Business President DJ Koh addressing a press conference at CES 2018 revealed that the first flagship smartphone of 2018 will be unveiled at MWC.

The official also said that the company was planning to launch its foldable phone sometime next year.


The next-generation Samsung Galaxy S9 will make its debut at the Mobile World Congress next month, a company executive has confirmed.

The Galaxy J2 Pro 2018 will come in three color variants of Black, Gold and Green and for the price, Samsung wants 3,290,000 VND, which translates to under $150. The devices will have 5.8 and 6.2-inch display and 18:9 aspect ratio. The phone comes equipped with an Infinity screen, which means that much like Samsung's Galaxy S8, the Galaxy A8+ also comes with an edge-to-edge bezel-less display.

Most of the rumours and reports suggest that the most noticeable cosmetic change will be a redesign of the fingerprint scanner, which was small and awkwardly positioned on the S8. Samsung is not likely to introduce a bump in resolution by moving to a 4K panel but it is expected to improve the quality of display. It comes with 6GB of RAM along with 64GB of internal storage expandable up to 256GB via microSD card.


Then in September, Samsung should be ready to start producing the physical panels that end up on your phone.

Talking about the specifications of the Galaxy A8+(2018) smartphone, the phone runs on Samsung Exynos 7885 octa-core processor.

In terms of processor, Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor or the company's own Exynos 9810 processor. According to leaks, Samsung will restrict the dual rear camera option to the bigger Galaxy S9+ while the Galaxy S9 will get a regular single lens camera at the back.
