Samsung will be launching the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ on Feb. 25 at Barcelona's MWC 2018.

(CCM) — Samsung's upcoming flagship lineup, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+, have been on the press radar for quite some time. The South Korean giant has confirmed that it will unveil the devices at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) show in Barcelona this year. And now, ET News is reporting the official reveal date as Feb. 25.

The report also claims that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ will feature Snapdragon 845 SoC; a 12 megapixel, dual-camera setup with Super Phase Detection autofocus; and 3000 mAh or 3500mAh batteries. Samsung is most likely to put the devices up for pre-order in March, while the shipments will likely begin starting on March 16.

Every year at MWC, Samsung garners a lot of buzz, while other brands fight to earn similar attention. The report also claims that brands like Huawei and LG have postponed their announcement dates to avoid clashing with Samsung's Galaxy S9 and S9+ launch event. LG and Huawei will reportedly have separate events in late March or April. LG is expected to launch an enhanced version of its V30 smartphone, while Huawei will unveil an upgraded P20 smartphone.
