Samsung is expected to debut its next smartphone in March, giving Apple’s iPhone X some fierce competition earlier than anticipated.
According to Bloomberg, the South Korean company plans to introduce its new Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus models as soon as late February, and release the devices as early as March, according to their anonymous sources.
The S9 will reportedly have an ‘upgraded camera system’ with its display having a similar look to the iPhone X.
In terms of pricing, the devices are likely to be priced as high as a $1,000 but such price barriers have already been broken by the iPhone X.
The rumored debut of the Galaxy S9 will be the company’s first major smartphone introduction since September, when they released the Note 8.
According to data from IDC, Samsung dominated global smartphone shipments in the third quarter of this year, holding more than 22 percent of the market. Apple was second with 13 percent.
