Samsung Electronics Co. is said to be planning to debut its next flagship smartphone in February, presenting Apple Inc.’s iPhone X with a sooner-than-expected challenger.

The South Korea-based technology giant plans to introduce the new models, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus, as early as late February and release the devices as early as March, according to people familiar with the matter. 

That schedule would be a month earlier than for the current Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus.

 The new phones will be similar to the current Galaxy models, but include upgraded camera systems, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the plans are private.

The debut will be the South Korean company’s first major phone introduction since the Note 8 was released in September. 

The Galaxy S8 line was introduced this past March. The release plans for the new models are still fluid and could change, the people added. Samsung declined to comment.
