Samsung rolling out what is possibly the last Galaxy S8/S8+ Oreo beta update, see what's new

Samsung to Launch the Galaxy S9 in February 2018

Samsung has confirmed that the Galaxy S9 will come out next month. This year, the Samsung Galaxy S9 will battle with LG G7, announcement of which is already under a different name (LG abandoned the G-series) will be held in March.

Samsung will launch its next phone in February. The MWC 2018 conference will take place from February 26 to March 1 2018. Samsung's expected to start rolling out the stable Oreo update for the devices in the coming weeks, but as of publication time, the company hasn't announced the rollout's start date.

Samsung said that their foldable phone launch has been delayed to next year. The Samsung A8+ may not be a flagship in terms of specifications but it comes with most features that Samsung offers with its premium segment devices. Koh said that the biggest challenge in commercialization was the UX, but Samsung is working on it. The S9 plus was rumored to be launched with the S9, but Samsung is yet to provide further details about S9's big brother.

Under the hood, the smartphone should pack the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 or the Samsung Exynos 9810 processor depending on the market.

The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are expected to sport 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch OLED display respectively.

- The Galaxy A8+ supports Samsung Pay out-of-the-box, has a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner that's way more convenient than it is on the Galaxy S8, a micro-SD card slot that supports storage expansion of up to 256GB, and a USB Type-C for charging and data-syncing. Repeating his comments from September 2017, Koh said Samsung will reveal such a device next year.

The leaks suggest that Samsung plans to make the chin thinner than that of Galaxy S8, which should make the devices even more compact and its screen-to-body ratio might hit the 90 percent mark. We'll stay on top of any new developments, so, stay tuned for more information as soon as it becomes available.
