Samsung Galaxy S9 and LG G7 to Launch at CES

It appears that the LG G7 and Samsung Galaxy S9 are set to launch at CES. This is the first time in a while that a couple of big names have used the Consumer Electronics show to launch a new mobile device. This used to be the normal state of affairs back in the day, but the mobile world has garnered it's own events such as Mobile World Congress. That is such a huge event now that companies are starting to see that their announcements are getting lost in the shuffle. The good news is that CES is still around and will be the launch platform as we kick off 2018. We will be there and will have details from the show floor.

Citing industry sources, Business Korea is reporting that the release of the iPhone X has spurred considerable interest in next-gen devices. Samsung has apparently moved up its usual March release timetable to January for the Galaxy S9 and S9+. The move is designed to put a "check" on the popularity of Apple's flagship device. While the S9 is expected to keep much of the same design as the S8, with the exception of changing the rear camera alignment and fingerprint sensor placement, the units are expected to have a new AMOLED display, dual cameras, and Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 845 processor.
