Samsung starts the hype train for its latest flagship as the company confirms the dates for their Unpacked Event in a tweet. According to the tweet, the Unpacked event will be held on February 25. The tweet shows a picture with a large purple “9” on a black background, highlighting the words “The camera. Reimagined.”
Avid Samsung followers will know that many camera enthusiasts were disappointed with Samsung Galaxy S8 as the phone didn’t bring a lot of improvements to the cameras from its predecessor. While companies like Google and Apple really took their camera game to the next level last year, Samsung didn’t do anything to awe the consumers.
Although the Note series did receive a huge camera upgrade with the Note 8, the same could not be said about the Galaxy S8. It’s about time that Samsung shows some love to its Galaxy S series of phones when it comes to cameras. In fact, in a post on its newsroom, Samsung pretty much confirmed huge camera improvements for the Galaxy S9. The post reads,
“If a picture is worth a thousand words, the latest member of the Galaxy family has a lot to say. On February 25, Samsung Electronics will showcase the next generation of Galaxy devices that reimagines the camera and redefines the way you share your moments.”
That is a pretty bold claim, and I would really love to see what Samsung has done with the camera or cameras on the S9. Before last year, Samsung Galaxy S Series of phones had always packed arguably the best stills camera on any phone and was only rivaled by the one on the iPhones. However, last year, Google beat both Apple and Samsung to take the crown and now Samsung wants it back.
The Galaxy Unpacked event will be held on February 25, 2018, at 6 PM CET. The event will take place during Mobile World Congress or MWC and people will be able to watch it live by visiting the Unpacked events page.
