Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus are the new flagships of Koreans, which we will see in the next quarter. Asian media reported that the company has already completed work on the projects of both phones, and their mass production will begin soon. The process should be launched allegedly in December of this year. Unfortunately, we learned that the fingerprint scanner will not be on the screen.
Samsung began work on smartphones Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus even before the market debut of the S8. The mobile phones were created under the code names Star, and Star 2. New information about these phones was given to us by the Korean media. Allegedly, the projects of both smartphones are already at the final stage.
Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus are already ready in the technical plan. This means that work on its components and equipment was completed. Now it’s time to update the software with a new flagship, which is also a key element. Apparently, the experimental production program was completed already last month. And in December of this year, mass production of new mobile phones is planned. However, we do not know when this will happen.
Samsung allegedly tried to put in smartphones Galaxy S9 and S9 +, a fingerprint scanner built into the screen. But they failed to successfully apply this technology, therefore, they refused this decision. New leaks suggest that such a function will appear in the model Galaxy Note 9, which is developed under the code name Crown. This means that in the flagships of the S series the scanner will stand on its back. Fortunately, the location of the scanner will change and it will be placed under the camera, not nearby.
Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 + are likely to be presented in the next quarter. It is possible that this time the premiere will take place during the exhibition MWC 2018, and not later.
