Samsung Galaxy S9 release date

Samsung Galaxy S9 price and release date

We so far know nothing about when the Samsung Galaxy S9 will be announced, so we'll just have to go off what Samsung has done in the past.

Samsung announced the Galaxy S8 in late March, so we'd expect it will follow up with the Galaxy S9 roughly a year later, at the end of March 2018.

But it was late in announcing the Galaxy S8 in 2017 - the company waited about a month longer than normal, so it's possible that the S9 will land around the end of February, in which case it might be launched at Mobile World Congress 2018, as that's likely to take place at that sort of time.

Samsung Galaxy S9 price and release date

Recent rumors state that - due to the fact the OLED screens that are likely to be used in the phones are being created earlier than usual - the Galaxy S9 will launch in January, but that would be far too early for many reasons, not least because people wouldn't be eligible to upgrade to it right away.

What we can safely predict is the Samsung Galaxy S9 is sure to be expensive, as the Galaxy S8 launched at $720, £689, AU$1,199.
Samsung Galaxy S9 news and rumors

Not much is known about the Samsung Galaxy S9, but some sources claim the company has already started work on producing its next flagship phone.
The Bell reports unnamed industry sources saying that Samsung has been hard at work on the display panels for the Galaxy S9 since late March 2017. If Samsung has started work on the S9’s display panels that’s apparently about 6 months earlier than usual.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 only hit stores earlier this year, but we're already hearing rumors of the Samsung Galaxy S9, with one report claiming the phone is already in the first few stages of production.

The rumors are now coming thick and fast for what the new phone will look like, especially as we've now seen the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and the iPhone 8 is imminent, so we've rounded up the best of them here - as well as answering some key questions.
What's the new Samsung Galaxy S9 news?
The latest leaks suggest the Samsung Galaxy S9 will support modular accessories but without a fingerprint built into the screen (sadly, still around the back). It'll have the new powerful Snapdragon 845 chipset powering things but it will stick with 4GB of RAM, rather than 6GB as other modern smartphones have.
What will the Samsung Galaxy S9 price be?

We're expecting £639 / $725 / AU$1200 based on current projections, as we're expecting the Galaxy S9 to come in around the same price as its predecessor. Given we're not expecting massive design changes, we doubt too high a price rise.
What's the Samsung Galaxy S9 release date?

We're expecting a March 2018 launch. While the recent rumors suggest the S9 will launch in January, that's too early given people are locked into contract cycles.
