We are quite near the official launch of Samsung’s 2018 flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus and here’s what to expect. The brand is all set to unveil its newest line of flagship phones on the 25th of February at MWC (Mobile World Congress). Just like previous releases, a lot has already leaked as to how the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus will look along with its internal hardware. This year round, the S flagship series would be looking to regain its former best camera on a smartphone glory. Along with that, there are hints of some other exciting features as well. Read ahead to find more details as to what has already been leaked and what we know about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus.
For starters, the new Galaxy S9 is to come equipped with a better placed fingerprint sensor. On the last iteration, Galaxy S8, Samsung tried this weird fingerprint location which was less than natural hence users complained. From what we can see through renders, the new phone will place it below the camera module hence making it easier to reach and use. Apart from this, the physical design of the phone seems just like the Galaxy S8. The Galaxy S9+ will also feature better camera hardware and will come equipped with dual lens system similar to that of the Note 8.
Moving on to the internals, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 both will be featuring Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 845 chipset or Samsung’s homebrew Exynos 9810 module. Both chips would be astonishingly fast and will be equipped to handle all tasks thrown at them quite easily. Coupling the chipset, there would be 64GB storage as standard and 4GB RAM on the Galaxy S9 while the Galaxy S9 Plus will get 6GB.
Lastly, there is a great chance Samsung will be taking their AKG partnership to the next level by integrating powerful audio hardware on the smartphones themselves rather than just on headphones. The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus both are expected to ship with stereo speakers.
