Samsung Galaxy S9 Specifications, Price And Release Date
One thing about this year is that it’s a year full of leaks, regardless how hard the companies try to prevent the leaks but they just keep on popping up.
The most funniest part is that the unboxing video of OnePlus 5T was released before its official launch, a German blog also shared the images but unfortunately, they were asked to take it down.
Earlier, Samsung also found itself in the same situation whereas Samsung is planning to unveil their next smartphone in early 2018.
With the success of Galaxy S8 and Note8, Samsung is pretty confident with their S9. In a hardly surprising development, SamMobile has confirmed that there will be two versions of the Galaxy S9.
The site discovered two model numbers for the handset – G960FXXU0AQI5 and G965FXXU0AQI5 – the first of which allegedly belongs to the Galaxy S9, and the latter to the Galaxy S9 Plus. The report doesn’t reveal much else about the upcoming flagships.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 will come with Android 8.0 (Oreo) with Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 (US) / Samsung Exynos (UK), 5.8 inch / 6.2 inch QHD + Super AMOLED curved display (570 ppi / 529 ppi), Cat 18 LTE support (1.2Gbps download speeds), Display embedded fingerprint scanner, Dual rear-facing camera, Bixby AI assistant with dedicated button and USB-C.
However, the only flaw with Galaxy S8 is fingerprint sensor which was placed beside the camera. So far, this is the only thing that everyone is complaining about. Hence, they are uncomfortable with it.
According to the news report from BGR, the fingerprint scanner will sit below the camera sensors on the S9, with a dual-flash separating them. This setup should be much easier to navigate with your finger.
Thus, Samsung is expected to fix the worst thing about the Galaxy S8 with the upcoming Galaxy S9. Early leaks suggest that Samsung has decided to reposition the handset’s fingerprint sensor, to make it easier to use.
There’s A Possibility For Samsung To Launch Their Galaxy S9 And S9 Plus Much Earlier Than Expected At CES 2018, it has been reported. Rumours suggest that we might see a rear fingerprint scanner in Galaxy S9.
Regarding to the price, there has been no official announcements yet, if it’s anything like the Galaxy S8 then the price could be around £689 and £779, which is approximately 920 US Dollars.
According to Samsung’s official blog SamMobile claimed that the Galaxy S9 will be made available in four different colour options: black, gold, blue and purple. Last year, speculation had claimed that the Galaxy S8 would also launch in a purple variant, but this rumour never came to fruition.
SamMobile notes, however, that there’s a “high chance” this isn’t the final list of colours, adding that Orchid Gray and Arctic Silver could also turn out to be a part of the lineup.
SamMobile also reports that the Galaxy S9 will boast less bezel than its S8 predecessor. A tipster told the website that there could be a 90 per cent screen-to-body ratio on Samsung’s upcoming flagship, up from around 84 per cent on the Galaxy S8.
According to the report, this will mean that the bottom bezel is almost non-existent, potentially giving Samsung room to sq££ze a large screen into the device.
Based on the news report from ETNews, the Galaxy S9 could pack a camera sensor capable of shooting ‘super slow motion’ footage at 1,000fps. It reports that the camera sensor will use stacked image sensing tech similar to the Sony Xperia XZ1, with the ability to temporarily store captured images on a DRAM chip in one of the layers. Samsung will start mass producing the ‘3-layered image sensor’ in November, according to the report.
Also, ET News has debunked rumours that the Galaxy S9 will feature souped-up facial recognition technology similar to the iPhone X’s Face ID, and has claimed that, instead, it’ll feature the same iris scanning tech as the Galaxy S9. Don’t expect an under screen fingerprint sensor, either, as the report notes that the S9 will feature a scanner on its rear.
