The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ will officially launch next week at MWC 2018 in Barcelona. Ahead of the big event, both Samsung flagship smartphones have just gotten the green light from SIRIM and it’s an indicator that it could go on sale in Malaysia very soon.
The Galaxy S9 (SM-G960F/DS) and Galaxy S9+ (SM-G965F/DS) have appeared on SIRIM’s database and we are definitely getting the dual-SIM models for Malaysia. Traditionally, we get the Exynos powered variants instead of Snapdragon units for our local market.
In case you missed it, the Galaxy S9/S9+ have leaked extensively over the past few weeks and you can find out what to expect in this post. Essentially, the Galaxy S9/S9+ looks like a refresher of the current Galaxy S8/S8+ but with major improvements in the camera department. The screen size and battery capacity appear to be the same as the current model but it will get a couple of tweaks including stereo speakers that are tuned by AKG.
Since Malaysia is a key market for Samsung, pre-orders for the Galaxy S9/S9+ could happen within a week from launch. Both devices are expected to go on sale in Malaysia sometime in mid-March.
You can catch the Samsung Unpacked event live at 1AM on Monday, 26 February, Malaysian time. We will be there at the launch together with SoyaCincau BM, so stay tuned to us for the latest updates.
