Samsung may roll out the Galaxy S9 and S9+ as early as March next year.

According to a Bloomberg report, just like the S7 and S8, Samsung plans on releasing two versions of S9 with the specifications differing slightly.

Rumors have been ongoing regarding the reveal of Samsung's Galaxy S9 which many expected to take place at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January. However, Samsung's foldable Galaxy X might be making a debut at the event instead of the flagship S9, according to Mashable.
