Samsung Galaxy S9 to Be Announced Later This Month

Episode 1459 (1:47:42)

Samsung Galaxy S8

Samsung will be announcing the Galaxy S9 smartphone later this month at Mobile World Congress. We expect the phone to be more expensive this time around, at $850, and it will look a lot like the Galaxy S8. It will have dual cameras, but for the most part, it likely won't be anything major that would prompt an upgrade unless you're already in the market for a new phone anyway.

The next generation of Samsung phone, coming sometime in 2019, may be more interesting. For a long time now, Samsung has wanted to make a smartphone with a flexible screen that could open up like a notebook. We've seen mockups of this. It would be a phone that looks like a typical smartphone but would unfold into a 7 or 8-inch tablet.
