Samsung will unveil its latest flagship — Galaxy S9 — on February 25. The smartphone will be launched at an event called Unpacked which will take place a day before Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 kicks off.

The South Korean tech giant has also posted a short teaser video on Twitter which focuses on the upcoming device’s camera.

Following the company’s tradition of launching two Galaxy S series flagships together, Samsung Galaxy S9 is expected to launch alongside a slightly larger model — Galaxy S9+.
The smartphones are expected to look very similar to their immensely successful predecessors, the S8 and S8+ which came out in 2017.

A noticeable design change will be a redesign of the fingerprint scanner which was awkwardly positioned on Galaxy S8. Samsung is reportedly shifting it to a more central position on the smartphone’s rear side, which should make it easier to access.
