Samsung is expected to unveil its Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus next month during MWC 2018, and according to leaker Evan Blass, we may know precisely when. In a tweet earlier today, Blass shared details from a “major casemaker” who says the S9 is currently planned to be introduced on February 26th, go up for pre-order on March 1st, and finally launch to the public on March 16th.
According to a C-level executive at a major casemaker, the go-to-market schedule for Galaxy S9 / S9+ is as follows:
Launch – 2/26
Pre-orders – 3/1
Ships/releases – 3/16

We haven’t heard any additional reports corroborating this tweet, so take this information with a grain of salt. That being said, considering Samsung has confirmed it’ll be introducing its newest handsets at MWC, these dates likely aren’t far off from the official.
The Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus are expected to ship with 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch displays, Snapdragon 845 processors, up to 6GB of RAM, larger batteries, and Android Oreo. The S9 Plus may also see dual rear cameras, while the fingerprint sensor on both handsets should be repositioned for ease of use.
