Samsung is set to launch its next Galaxy flagship, the S9, next month. The phone maker sent out invites for its event last night, teasing a reimagined camera. Samsung’s Unpacked event will be taking place just a day before Mobile World Congress kicks off in Barcelona on February 25th. The company will be live streaming the event, starting at 9AM PT.
The teaser for the reimagined camera on the Galaxy S9 is quite vague, to say the least. It doesn’t give away too much about the new camera at all, so there’s no way of knowing what exactly is changing for now. The teaser video does have a focus/blur/bokeh effect which could be hinting at the potential dual-camera setup on the new S9 to enable new features like the iPhone’s Portrait mode. But personally speaking, I am not expecting the “reimagined” camera to be anything mind-blowing.

Samsung isn’t expected to introduce any major changes to the Galaxy line with the new S9, and it’s only probably going to be a refined and slightly more powerful iteration. We’ll likely get to know more about the device as we get closer to the release on February 25, so stay tuned.
