Its first official appearance will be an event that will take place next month so that nearly certainly means that it will be Mobile World Congress (MWC), an annual event which takes place in Barcelona and kicks off on 26 February. The glass and metal body looks and feels very premium in hand, and the device feels pretty sturdy too. It comes with 6GB of RAM along with 64GB of internal storage expandable up to 256GB via microSD card.
The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will purportedly sport the same 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch dual-curved, edge-to-edge Super AMOLED "Infinity Display" as the Galaxy S8 and S8+, respectively.
Previous rumours had pointed to CES as a potential launch date for the hotly-anticipated flagship phone, however, a spokesperson for the company quashed that rumour.
As for the camera, the Samsung Galaxy A8+ sports a 16-megapixel primary camera with an aperture of f/1.7.

With this confirmation, the new flagships will be successors to the company's 2017 flagships the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. India will get the Exynos version.
The Exynos 9 series 9810 includes a new image signal processor that can record 4K videos at 120 frames per second. It has a 16MP+8MP front camera and 16 MP rear camera.
The Galaxy S9+ is also tipped to include the same dual-camera set-up that debuted with the Galaxy Note 8 earlier this year. Will it go the Apple way in 2018?
With Galaxy Note8 having received good response from Note fans and Apple struggling to justify the $999 price tag of iPhone X, Samsung has an opportunity to drive some iPhone users away from Apple's stable with its S9 duo. The phones will be revealed in February at MWC and we can expect a March-April launch for them as has traditionally been the case.
