Flipkart's promotional banners seem to indicate an India launch will likely happen around the same time, although, they don't indicate any time-line. Ahead of official launch, Online retailer Flipkart has started teasing the launch of smartphones in the country. Aside from the augmented reality rumors, the color of the teaser also confirms that the rumored Lilac Purple variant of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus are likely to be true.

ASUS usually shows its latest smartphone lineup at either CES or Computex, in January or June, respectively, but this year we're expecting a full suite of ZenFone 5 phones to be unveiled at MWC 2018. The Galaxy S9+ next to it has a starting price of 997 euros. The Samsung Galaxy S9 duo will have an 8-megapixel front-facing sensor with f/1.7 aperture.
