A few more nights to sleep and then we finally get to know the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus. Much has been said about the design and the specifications in recent months, but that does not apply to the sale date. According to the Korean business newspaper The Investor , the flagships are already in stores from 16 March.
A little while from now we will finally see the long time anticipated latest flagships from Samsung with our own eyes. After months of speculation, the Korean smartphone designer unveils the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus on Sunday, February 25th . If we can believe the latest news, we do not have to wait long until the flagships are available. According to The Investor, the aircraft are already on the shelves on 16 March. The pre-order period is reportedly starting on Wednesday, February 28th. The first aircraft are then expected to be delivered in the days prior to 16 March. This information comes from anonymous sources from the production chain.
To what extent these data also apply to Europe, and in particular the Netherlands, is of course still the question. The aforementioned pre-order and introduction dates apply in the home country of South Korea. In theory, it is therefore possible that they will appear in our country at a later date. We have at least a concrete indication when we can expect the phablets.
