Galaxy S9, S9 Plus To Launch Globally On March 16: Report

The Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus will be announced on February 25 in Barcelona, during the Mobile World Congress (MWC), and some new info regarding the availability of those two handsets has surfaced. According to a Korean publication, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus will become available, globally, on March 16. Earlier, which differs from an earlier report which claimed that the two phones will go on sale on March 8, at least in Europe.

Now, as far as Korean market is concerned, the source claims that Korean carriers, SK Telecom, KT and LG Uplus will start receiving pre-order for the device on February 28. Consumers which pre-order either of the two flagship phones in Korea, will get their hands on them between March 9 and March 15, as the two phones will go on sale on March 16, same as in other regions, at least if this report is to be believed. An official from the local (Korean) telecom industry allegedly said that Samsung sent out pre-order and release schedules to carriers, and that the aforementioned info is based on it. There you have it, pre-orders for the two phones will start soon after the two devices become official, only a couple of days later, at least in Korea, but the release date is the same for Korea and other major markets, it seems.

Samsung had already announced its February 25 Unpacked event in Barcelona, and the company also released a number of teasers for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus handsets. A ton of info surfaced when it comes to these two phones, while pretty much every color variant of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus appeared two days ago as well. The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus will be made out of metal and glass, while they will resemble their predecessors quite a bit. The Galaxy S9 Plus will be somewhat more powerful than the regular Galaxy S9 model, as it will ship with a dual camera setup on the back, and 6GB of RAM, while the regular model will sport a single rear-facing camera, and 4GB of RAM, at least according to rumors / leaks. The top bezel on these two devices will be slightly thicker than the bottom one, that at least seems to be the case based on leaked renders.
