Samsung confirms Galaxy S9 will launch in February
Samsung will launch its next phone in February.

This week the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) kicked off in Las Vegas, where typically phone vendors tend to launch their latest products, however this year Samsung announced it will wait until February to launch the Galaxy S9.

The reveal squashed all rumours that the smartphone was going to be launched at CES as DJ Koh, president of Samsung's mobile business said the company will unveil the device at Mobile World Congress.

Despite citing 2018 the year to release a foldable device, Koh said that it will launch the device next year due to UX being the biggest obstacle in commercialisation. He also revealed that Bibxy 2.0 will surface within the year and all Samsung devices will support the voice assistant by 2020.

"Many companies have AI competence, but not many have hardware competence," Koh said. "We started a little later [than others] but we are confident in offering the best experience for consumers."

Whilst there is no specific date, Mobile World Congress will run from 26 February to 1 March.
