Samsung is at the moment planning to unveil its Galaxy S9 handset at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) next month. Although, the Galaxy S8 successor has been teased with camera improvements, the design of the Galaxy S9 has been rumoured to be almost identical to the Samsung Galaxy S8. A publication came from one of our informants of what is believed to be the images of the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+. The front of both of these devices appear to be nearly identical to the Galaxy S8, and suggest that the S9 will have a similar bezel-less display and be that as it may, feature Samsung’s controversial Bixby button.
Reports from our sources claim the Galaxy S9 will include a 5.8-inch display and that it would be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 in the US, with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The larger S9+ is said to have a 6.2-inch display, and 6GB of RAM with 128GB of storage. Both these models seem to be iterative hardware updates over the existing S8. Our sources report that Samsung’s camera upgrades include a variable aperture on the primary 12-megapixel camera, which allows it to switch between f/2.4 and f/1.5.
While there hasn’t been any pictures of the rear of the S9 supplied, the publication does claim that the fingerprint sensor will be vertically aligned with the camera, instead of sitting beside it (like on the S8). This enhancement means the fingerprint reader will be located beneath the camera, in a more natural position which should be easier to locate. This placement aligns with some videos that claim to be dummy units of the Galaxy S9.
Both of the Galaxy S9 models are said to include 8-megapixel selfie cameras, besides stereo speakers at the bottom of Samsung’s 2018 handsets. Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy S9 and S9+ next month, and the devices will suggestively be available in stores on March 16th.
