It’s never been confirmed by Samsung that they have started working on the device or not. It is the designers and online news maker who spread the rumors.

What are the expectations from Galaxy S9?
- A cheaper variant
Everyone wants value for money. As good as the Samsung Galaxy S series is, people, do not see it as an investment worth making. A cheaper variant, however, seems like the ideal fix to this problem. The people want a cheaper variant of the Samsung Galaxy S9.
- Foldable screen
This seems like too much to ask for right now. However, people from around the world have requested various reputed brands to release a smart phone with a foldable screen. Smart phones with foldable screens were recently pictured in Asia. This gave rise to the people’s demand to see the feature in Samsung’s next flagship.
- Dual lens camera
The improvements made on the camera of the Galaxy S8 disappointed a few people. People expected a large megapixel figure with a dual lens camera. However, due to the lack of time, Samsung could only provide a 12MP camera with single lens. Hopefully, the S9 wouldn’t face the same problem.
- A larger battery
Samsung Galaxy S8 was released with many upgrades to its predecessor. However, its battery size compared to its other features faded its value. A 3000 mAh is something which would hold back the people from buying the device. We expect Samsung to work on this and increase the battery size to at least 4000 mAh.
What is the release date of Samsung Galaxy S9?
As per the rumors spreading online by the news maker and designers make it clears that the device will be available in 2018.

Just after its release, it will be available in Market from April, 2018.

It is believed that the Plus model will be the one with screen size of 6.5” with the same technical specs as of its main model.

- Release Date
Because of the more up gradation, Plus model will be release around one and half month later than Galaxy S9.
Price of Plus model can’t be spread straight forward with the wrong intention of rumors. As it will be featuring some latest technical upgrades; it is expected to be launched at a higher price.
