Flipkart has begun teasing Samsung's Galaxy S9 lineup on its e-commerce platform, ahead of the phone's official launch on February 25 in Barcelona. And you're going to need to start saving if a prominent leaker's revelation about S9 pricing pans out.
United States buyers will likely be significantly paying more for an S9+ than they would for the homegrown iPhone X ($999), unless Samsung prices the phone more aggressively across the Atlantic. However, a source suggests that the Galaxy S9 fingerprint sensor won't be integrated into the display. However, the biggest revelations came over the past few days, thanks to Reddit posts from users who have actually used Galaxy S9 prototypes, as well as insiders with access to Samsung's marketing materials for the upcoming flagship handset.
The first build for the Galaxy S8, at least in the DBT (unlocked German units) region, was released on February 12.
The teaser page tips that the company will come up with many major upgrades on the camera front of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. As per leaks, the new smartphone is now codenamed "polaris" and will include the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 845. It's very possible that the variant of the 256GB Galaxy S9+ may cost over $1,000.
Another smartphone rumoured to launch at Mobile World Congress is the Nokia 7 Plus. The smartphones will possibly feature 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch Super AMOLED QHD+ Infinity Displays with 18:9 aspect ratio. Leaks have left little to the imagination and official teaser videos have confirmed some of the more salacious features - slow-mo camera, low-light shooting and 3D emoji. The Samsung Galaxy S9 duo will have an 8-megapixel front-facing sensor with f/1.7 aperture.
