    Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus rumors have been mounting, painting a picture of a large-screen, slim-bezel phone with the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processorand a dual-camera setup (at least the larger S9 Plus). Rumors also include Samsung's own Face ID secure face unlocking, and an in-screen fingerprint reader.

    Samsung will be streaming the event from Barcelona, Spain on its website for everyone who can’t make it to MWC. Festivities are set to kick off on Sunday, February 25, at 6 p.m. CET.

    Nice, now stick an S-Pen in there and you would have the perfect phone. The in screen finger print reader is the one thing I would like on my Note 8, the only real negative is it's location but it works.

    I just wonder what the prices will be. though I am not in the market for a new phone this year, it would the the sign of things to come since it seems they have been going up.

    Not too concerned about the fingerprint scan anymore since I am satisfied where it is now on the note 8. when I was concerned, I was totally wrong...

    I hate when these companies advertise and market something like it's going to be revolutionary, for example "The camera. Reimagined." Like it's going to rebuild their camera from the ground up. And when the camera comes out, it's going to have maybe slightly higher megapixels and one new gimmick software feature.

    Its only useful feature for me is helping me get to specific settings because you forget which series of submenus that setting is hiding in lol

    "Bring me to battery usage... because you're buried under literally 3 different screens in settings and you don't appear when using the search bar"

    Yeah sammy is one of the worst offenders of overly nested and hidden settings.

    that is a very good point. I spend a lot of time looking for features in the settings. samsung organizational skills leave a lot to be desire.
