Let us forget about all other upcoming Smartphones for a bit and focus on the upcoming Galaxy S9, which is expected to launch on 25th February at MWC 2018!
What Samsung is bringing is something that might just be the end of the iPhone X! The Galaxy S9 might just actually be the next big thing which might make Apple reconsider the X because of one simple feature, its camera!
The invitation also offers a hint at some of the new capabilities coming to the latest entry in the flagship Galaxy S smartphone range.
“The Camera. Reimagined,” the invites teases, complete with a large number 9. Samsung adds, “If a picture is worth a thousand words, the latest member of the Galaxy family has a lot to say.”
“On February 25, Samsung Electronics will showcase the next generation of Galaxy devices that reimagines the camera and redefines the way you share your moments.”
