Samsung confirms Galaxy S9 will launch in February

The official also said that the company was planning to launch its foldable phone sometime next year. The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will bring iterative updates to company's Infinity Display design with some leaked panels showing thinner bezels than existing models. What will change is the position of the rear fingerprint scanner.

For those who came in late, the Galaxy X handset is to be Samsung's first foldable handset.

The beta for the Exynos Galaxy S8 bumps the version number to ZRA5, and has a download size of 593MB.

The next entry in the hugely-successful Galaxy S smartphone range will be unveiled next month, Samsung has confirmed. It comes with 6GB of RAM along with 64GB of internal storage expandable up to 256GB via microSD card. Keeping the phone alive is a decent 2600mAh battery unit, which, according to Samsung, can last an impressive 60 hours of audio playback.

Samsung itself included a warning with the default camera app to remind users to keep the lens clean, since smudges can negatively impact picture quality.

- Successor to the Galaxy A7 2017, the Galaxy A8+ has been designed from ground up to offer a flagship Galaxy S8-kind of experience at a not so flagship Galaxy S8-kind of pricing.

The company has skipped the dual-camera setup at the rear panel.

The Exynos 9 series 9810 includes a new image signal processor that can record 4K videos at 120 frames per second.

For the optics, the Galaxy J2 Pro 2018 comes with an 8MP main shooter that boasts autofocus and LED flash while the front has a 5MP selfie shooter.

Front camera: On the front, the Galaxy A8+ comes with a dual camera system, consisting of one 16-megapixel sensor (f/1.9) and another 8-megapixel sensor (f/1.9) to aid in portrait selfies. We will have to wait and see. 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.
