This confirms a Bloomberg report from December that said Samsung will launch two versions of the Galaxy S9, the regular variant and a larger, S9+ variant, at a February event.
Rumors about the S9 says it’ll come with a 5.8- and 6.2-inch screen, a vertically positioned dual camera (with a fingerprint scanner underneath), a Snapdragon 845 processor (or the freshly announced Exynos 9 Series 9810), and 6GB of RAM.
Samsung typically (but not always) launches a flagship smartphone at or just before the Mobile World Congress, which usually happens in late February. Last year’s Samsung Galaxy S8 was launched a month later than usual, though, in March, while the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge were launched at MWC 2016.
Koh also addressed a perpetual Samsung rumor — that the company would launch a foldable phone. Repeating his comments from Sept. 2017, Koh said Samsung will reveal such a device next year.
