Samsung is all set to announce their next flagships – the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ on February 25th before MWC 2018 kicks off. Though we are now aware of the design and specifications of the upcoming Galaxies, we have never seen the renders as fabulous as the below one.
These renders come courtesy of prolific leaker Evan Blass (@evleaks). The above renders confirm that the Galaxy S9 duo won’t be much different than the Galaxy S8 duo. However, the bezels seem a bit thinner than the previous generation. As for design is concerned, OEMs continue the similar design for at least two years but with slighter improvements. If we look back at Samsung’s history, we can get a clear picture of it.
Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus Specifications
Moreover, both the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor in the US and China. Whereas in other regions, the duo will be powered by Samsung’s own Exynos 9810 processor. Further, the regular Galaxy S9 will feature 4GB RAM / 64GB ROM and also will lack dual camera setup. But, the plus variant will come with 6GB RAM / 128GB ROM as well as dual cameras. At front, the regular S9 will feature a 5.8 inch QHD+ Super AMOLED display and the plus variant will sport a same panel but at 6.2 inches.
The primary rear camera will feature variable apertures of f/2.4 and whopping f/1.5 (first in any smartphone). This clearly means the Galaxy S9 duo will perform better in low light. The camera is also capable of shooting super slow motion videos of 480fps at 720p. Another new addition are stereo speakers at the bottom which is most welcoming but not as the better fingerprint placement. However, the Bixby button returns again which is kind of bummer as users can map it to do other actions.
The Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus will be unveiled on February 25th at Samsung’s Unpacked event and they will be start shipping from March 16.
