Korean media The Investor reports that Samsung plans to announce the flagship smartphone Galaxy S9 earlier than expected. According to him, the device will be presented in January next year, and sales will begin in February (that is, before MWC 2018). This is evidenced by the advance in the schedule of supplies of components for the smartphone.
So, Samsung Electronics will receive AMOLED-panels for Galaxy S9 from Samsung Display already in November, although the panel for Galaxy S8 it began to receive only in January. It is reported that the shift in the announcement of Galaxy S8 for January is caused by the desire to quickly respond to the frameless iPhone 8, which will be presented in September. We are waiting for new details about the ninth Android flagship from South Korea.
