Thanks to the awesome Evan Blass, we now know what the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ are going to look like nearly a month before they are officially announced at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month.

If you don’t follow the Venture Beat writer on Twitter, you should. He is deadly accurate with information on upcoming devices in the Android world. I don’t post a lot of leak or rumor information here on ClintonFitch.com because it can change – a lot. But with Mr. Blass, I generally count it as solid information.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 lineup is expected to be announced next month at Mobile World Congress and while we don’t have a lot of details about the phone, early indicators are a new Animoji type feature as well as significant camera improvements. You can also expect, based on the leaks from Evan, a nearly bezel-less design on the S9 lineup.
The question, of course, is price. It is very likely that the Galaxy S9+ will be at the $1000 barrier. There will, of course, be carrier subsidy programs and purchase program to get the new device as every carrier here in the US is expected to pick it up.
Samsung is expected to be one of the biggest announcements next month at MWC. HTC and Huawei have already indicated that they will not be making major announcements at the event.
