As well as the Galaxy S9 launch, Koh also commented on Samsung's debut of its first foldable smartphone by claiming the phone will launch in 2019 contrary to his previous report in 2017 that it would launch this year.
DJ Koh, the company's mobile chief confirmed at CES that the flagship smartphones will be unveiled at MWC after missing the launch time frame a year ago.
The official also said that the company was planning to launch its foldable phone sometime next year. The product is said to be operational with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 proccesor, 5.65-inch QHD + a Super AMOLED display, and either a 4 or 6 GB RAM. Another major design change and a crucial one is expected to come in the form of re-positioned rear fingerprint sensor.
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. The phone comes equipped with an Infinity screen, which means that much like Samsung's Galaxy S8, the Galaxy A8+ also comes with an edge-to-edge bezel-less display.
Samsung has confirmed that the Galaxy S9 will come out next month. Specifications for the Galaxy S9 have already started making headlines back in 2017.
Leaks claim Samsung Galaxy S9+ could get a 512GB storage variant, though this might be limited and restricted to some countries.
A lot of speculations were ongoing regarding the possible launch day of Samsung's next-generation flagships. At the front, it has a dual camera setup with a 16-megapixel sensor along with an 8-megapixel sensor, both with an aperture of f/1.9.
It is not long for MWC so we don't really have to wait long enough to see what Samsung has in store for us. Galaxy A8+ comes with flagship features, never before seen on a smartphone in this price segment.
