Samsung has confirmed that it will be releasing Galaxy S9 on February 25.

The South Korean company said that their 2018 flagship phone will be introduced in Barcelona during the Mobile World Congress, the world’s largest exhibition for the mobile industry. The company also sent out their invites, claiming that their Samsung Unpacked event will start a day ahead of the actual MWC exhibition and it will be live-streamed on their website.

The company’s press invitation indicates a large purple number “9” printed on a black background. It highlights the words “The camera. Reimagined.” Although it doesn’t offer many details aside from the hints, they did acknowledge the rumors that S9 will have an improved camera performance. 

Samsung also published the latest details about the phone’s ISOCELL mobile imaging sensor, showing that there can be various advantages to the sensor data, such as the chance to shoot at 480 frames per second that will still result in a 1080p HD resolution. “ISOCELL Bright’s Tetracell technology noticeably improves light sensitivity in low-light conditions,” claims Samsung.

Samsung’s mobile division President DJ Koh first commented during the CES trade show in Las Vegas about the phone’s release date. Now, whatever Galaxy S9 phones will bring, the South Korean company will look for opportunities where they can demonstrate their advantage over their competition.
