Previously Samsung has always timed its releases with that of Apples’ iPhones, so the expected release date can be around January (Source: The Korea Herald), as the newest iPhone 8 and 8Plus are already made available in the market in Since October.
If it’s competing with Apple, will it come without a headphone jack?

Samsung has confirmed that the new S9 does, in fact, have a headphone jack, so we can expect the Samsung S9 to play our music the traditional way.
However, since no official release date is published by the company itself, there are many possibilities, the company might release the phone earlier to fill the void of Galaxy S-Series phones people have faced since the last year or it might release the phone later than August.
