The Samsung Galaxy S9 and bigger Galaxy S9+ are coming sooner than you think. For months on end, we’ve heard reports and rumors and even circled late February on the calendar. However, Samsung recently confirmed its first “Unpacked” event of 2018, and will formally announce the Galaxy S9.

To be specific, the Samsung Galaxy S9 announcement is February 25th in Barcelona, Spain, days before the annual Mobile World Congress tradeshow.

Each year Samsung hosts an “Unpacked” event to showcase it’s latest smartphones, tablets, wearables and other technology. The first Unpacked of 2018 is February 25th. And just in case you weren’t convinced, here’s the invitation. S9: The Camera. Reimagined. 

Yes, Samsung will announce it’s two new smartphones at the end of February. That’s all we officially know right now. At the same time, most leaks believe a release date will follow closely behind that launch event. Potentially releasing the phone as early as March 11-16th.

From everything we’ve seen and heard so far, the Galaxy S9 will have plenty to offer. Samsung made huge changes to the camera, the fingerprint scanner on the back, and potentially drastically improved battery life.

That said, potential buyers need to temper expectations. The Galaxy S9 and a bigger Galaxy S9+ will look almost identical to the Galaxy S8 from 2017. Featuring the same 5.8 and 6.2-inch curved Quad-HD Infinity screens. However, the camera on that back will reportedly have a variable aperture camera. This basically means it can change the aperture to get the best possible photo, in any situation.

Other changes include a centered fingerprint scanner that’s easier to reach and use, stereo sound, a 3.5mm headphone jack, Android 8.1 Oreo, wireless charging, water-resistance and longer battery life. Of course, we don’t know anything for sure until Samsung makes it official come February 25th. In the meantime, check out a few reasons why you should, or shouldn’t wait for it in our slideshow below.

This is maybe the best reason to hold off on buying a Samsung phone or any other phone right now. 

Samsung typically announces, and releases, its new Galaxy S flagships in the first half of the year. That won’t change in 2018. 

According to Samsung and the latest rumors, the company will likely showcase the Galaxy S9 for the first time toward the end of February followed by an official release in March. 

If you’re into specific dates, we’re hearing the phone will launch on February 25th or February 26th at Mobile World Congress, and hit stores on or around March 16th.

If you like to pre-order, Galaxy S9 pre-orders could begin as early as February 26th or sometime in around March 1st.

Nothing is official until Samsung makes its round of announcements, but everything is pointing to a Galaxy S9 launch, and release, in the next few weeks. 

This only happens once a year and that’s a great reason to think about holding off on buying a new Android phone today.
