Samsung Galaxy S9 & Galaxy S9


There are really no details that we do not already know about the upcoming flagship devices yet - all of the renders we can imagine and specifications have leaked out - leaving a very little detail to our imagination.

At the same time, while the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ were more or less the same deal differing only in screen size and battery capacities, the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ will be a lot different from each other. It is significantly more expensive than its peers among niche Shenzhen phone makers, which tend to sell phones in the sub-US$200 range. New press renders of both the S9 and S9 Plus have surfaced and seemingly show off almost every feature of the devices. In the United States, the Galaxy S9 will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, and worldwide variants will be outfitted with Samsung's Exynos 9810. However, with about $25 to $100 difference in pricing, which smartphone holds more weight? The same thing goes when it comes to the fingerprint sensor, facial recognition and iris scanner. The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are among ...

The first Samsung smartphone to have two cameras on the back was the Galaxy Note 8 and that feature will now be ported to the Galaxy S9+, too.

The second camera on the Galaxy S9+ has a F/2.4 aperture according to sources. We can also expect optical image stabilization, which is always a nice feature to have along for the ride. Both smartphones will reportedly have 8-megapixel selfie cams with autofocus and f/1.7 apertures.

As far as the display is concerned, the Galaxy Tab S4 is expected to sport a massive 10.5-inch display having 2,560x1,600p resolution and five-finger gesture support. The front will be nearly identical but with a slightly smaller front bezel at the bottom. In terms of connectivity, the two smartphones are expected to come with Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n/ac dual-band with MU-MIMO, Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy, NFC, and LTE Cat.18 supporting download speeds of up to 1.2 Gbps.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 is rumoured to be powered by their latest Exynos 9000 series chipset, up to 6GB of RAM, 512GB of onboard storage and a slightly bigger battery than the previous generation Galaxy S8.

We are now less than one week out from the reveal of the Galaxy S9. The Moto Mods system is used by handsets such as the Moto Z2 Force, and the Korean manufacturer could use this device as a template for the Galaxy S9.
