The invites are out! Samsung Galaxy S9 Unpacked launch date has been confirmed

Advertisement

We’ve known for weeks the Samsung Galaxy S9 would be launching at this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) in February; Samsung’s chief executive DJ Koh confirmed the rumours during CES, possibly hoping to generate even more hype. 

Now we know exactly where and when the grand Samsung Galaxy S9 release will take place after official invites to its 2018 Unpacked event on 25 February landed in journalists’ inboxes.

Like previous Unpacked invites, the Samsung Galaxy S9 one has a black background with the word Samsung in the top left-hand corner and Galaxy in the right. There is a purple “9” in the centre of the invite with the words “The camera” positioned outside the 9 and “Reimagined” positioned inside. 

 It’s unclear, at this point, how much a camera can be reimagined but rumours suggest the Samsung Galaxy S9 will include the variable aperture tech (f/1.5 to f/2.4) seen on the Samsung W2018 flip phone.

In the bottom left-hand corner of the Samsung Galaxy S9 invite is the date and where you can watch the Samsung Galaxy S9 Unpacked event online. The press conference itself will start at 6pm CET. 

Samsung has traditionally used MWC to unveil its latest flagship phones, although technically the launch doesn’t take place at MWC. It takes place in Barcelona at the same time so tech journalists attending the show are in town. However, the tech giant broke with this tradition last year, likely due to the furore surrounding the “exploding” batteries on the Samsung Galaxy S7, and the Galaxy S8 launch was much more muted. 

It appears the company has put this behind it and is going all guns for the Samsung Galaxy S9 release date. There have been leaks and rumours for months and, like previous models before it, we’re expecting to see two major variants of the Samsung Galaxy S9 brand – the S9 and S9+. 

Or to quote the firmware numbers, G960FXXU0AQI5 and G965FXXU0AQI5, along with model numbers for SM-G960 and SM-G965. These are thought to be for the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ respectively. 

If previous events are anything to go by, we’re expecting to see the Samsung Galaxy S9 release date set for around 16 March, with preorders opening shortly after the MWC Unpacked event. 

We’ll be at the event, bringing you live coverage so stay tuned.
