Samsung Galaxy S9 may be coming sooner than we thought! The South Korean giant has confirmed that it will be showcasing the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ at MWC 2018 on February 25. However, the date of the release of the smartphones had still been a mystery, probably the only thing unknown. That too, until now. A new report from Korea claims that after the showcasing this weekend, Samsung will start taking pre-orders in various markets just a few days later.
The phone is reportedly scheduled to hit stores on March 16 in most markets, The Investor explains, echoing earlier leaks. “Samsung recently sent out the preorder and release schedules to mobile carriers,” the report quotes a source as saying. The phone will apparently be available for preorder in Samsung’s home market on February 28, which is a few days earlier than the previously rumored March 2 date.
That’s not all. There is another leak that comes from a German tech site, which claims that the smartphones will be available for preorder immediately after the press conference at MWC, and will launch in stores on March 8.
