This Is What the Samsung Galaxy S9 & S9+ Could Look Like
Here we go again! Yet another leak! Relax, I am not talking about my bathroom problems.
Serial leaker and reporter for VentureBeat, Evan Blass recently leaked renders on the next Samsung flagships the S9 and S9+.
The rendered images make it obvious that the new phones could sport a bezel-less design with the absence of a fingerprint scanner. The new design looks a lot similar to the likes of the LG G6 and even Samsung’s earlier launched Galaxy S8 Duo.
On the specifications side, where the Galaxy S9 could sport a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED display, it’s bigger sibling the S9+ could come with a 6.2-inch screen.
As the South Asian market has always been the recipient of the Exynos chipset rather Snapdragon, expect the new S9 and S9+ to come with the Exynos 9810 processor coupled with 6GB of RAM.
The US market could receive the Snapdragon 845 variant of the same.
Samsung has always been generous with memory and we can expect the new Samsung flagships to come with 128GB internal memory with an option to expand.
The biggest addition expected on the phones is the ‘intelligent scan’ feature which basically is a combination of the iris scanner and the face ID. This bolsters the security feature of the phone.
It is rumoured that most of the phone’s design elements will remain the same as the previous generation with the fingerprint scanner and heartbeat sensor on the rear and the home button integrated with the display.
What could be the surprise element is the the new Samsung Galaxy S9+ could come with both the front and rear sporting dual camera.
Samsung had already introduced a dual camera setup in last year’s Galaxy Note 8 and the same could be carried forward on the S9. Also, like the Samsung A8+, there are chances that the S9+ may sport a dual front camera as well.
The new Samsung flagships will be launched at the MWC (Mobile World Congress) in Barcelona in February with the launch date confirmed by the company to be 25 February 2018.
