MWC 2018: 5G to be in focus at annual tech expo

Previewing Mobile World Congress in Spain

Fresh leaks have revealed the Galaxy S9 price, and the date when pre-orders would go live.

Samsung hasn't yet released its new Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ smartphone duo, so there's obviously no one outside of Samsung and its partners who has their hands on the phone at this point.

"Everybody likes to see the latest and greatest shiny device, but I think we have reached new heights in the sea of sameness when it comes to smartphones", Ben Wood, chief of research at CCS Insight, told CNBC by phone earlier this week. Save this page because this is where is all happens.

Samsung's event is generally the most massive, and this year will be no different. Although pricing and availability details of the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ will be revealed during the launch, chances are that in India the two phones will be available around middle of March at a price that will be close to Rs 70,000. "Super Slow Motion" and "Super Low Light" camera features are also listed in the document, and an of the Galaxy S9 is also available, as you can see in the provided image. Instead, what will be the price of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 +? In this case, the Galaxy S8 should have got the price cut, but the Galaxy S7 Edge swooped right in to steal some limelight.

As expected the new flagship smartphone from Samsung is going to be priced high.

While we wait for the official price breakdowns from Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint, we are doing some quick math and expecting the monthly fee to be $33 per month over the course of 24 months.

Phone specialist, Envirofone, says it has analysed sales and industry data and found that the value of the Samsung Galaxy S8 is expected to drop by 8% in the run-up to the launch of the S9, followed by a further 11% after it's unveiled, which could cost sellers over £50. The same thing will happen through Amazon, if you buy it there, while Best Buy serves both unlocked and carrier deals a lot of times.

The Galaxy S9 is just around the corner and fans are all excited about the device.

Samsung has made it clear on the S9 teaser and event invitation that the phones' biggest improvement will be in the photography department. G5 also features new Google assistant through which user can make calls, navigate, send messages, and manage other tasks just by pressing the Home button. In the past, this has meant the Samsung Gear VR headset, Gear 360 camera or a 256GB memory card. According to GSM Arena, the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus would have a starting price of $850 and $950 in the USA, respectively. But Samsung doesn't have an iPhone 8-like option with the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus. It even concludes with the tagline "now the flawless phone for you, is the ideal phone for business".
