With the release of the S9 just around the corner, Samsung is planning a major re-brand for the following model. A brief report in mid-December from a reliable source known to leak smartphone news on Twitter and Chinese microblogging site Weibo revealed that the new design we had all been hearing so much about had been scrapped.
With a few weeks left before the official launch date of the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S9, the rumors have taken a different direction, this time focusing on the potential cost of the upcoming flagship smartphone. Likewise, the Galaxy S9+ might come in at a starting price of $950 (roughly Rs. 60,900) in the US.
Whatever the case, Samsung will unveil two new flagship phones during a press conference on February 25th, and they're going to look nearly exactly like its two old flagship phones. The plan could also be a calculated attempt to better place the company in a position to compete with its greatest rival -Apple who may well have changed its iPhone naming to the iPhone "X series".
In addition to being faster than the previous generation, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus are expected to introduce improved cameras, with the Galaxy S9 getting a single 12-megapixel shooter and the Galaxy S9 Plus getting dual 12-megapixel shooters. However, considering that the launch date is set for February 25, fans can expect more information to be released in the coming weeks. Like many others, we were disappointed when we first heard the news.
But we're not convinced that this is going to happen. The company's C-series in Galaxy lineup devices target premium mid-range markets, prices nearly near to the "so-called" flagship killer smartphones.
