Samsung is gearing up to launch the 2018 versions of its flagship Galaxy S lineup in a much more traditional fashion, just prior to Barcelona’s Mobile World Congress.
Samsung has also sent out the official invites for the Unpacked event happening on 25th February.
Here is what we know so far about the Galaxy S9/S9+
- The Galaxy S9 will have a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED display whereas the S9+ will have a 6.2-inch Super AMOLED display.
- the 5.8-inch Galaxy S9 should feature a single rear camera, while the larger 6.2-inch Galaxy S9+ is expected to offer a dual rear camera setup.
- Powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 in the U.S. and China, and Samsung’s own Exynos 9810 systems-on-chip in the rest of the world.
- Memory configurations: 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage for the S9+, but the same 4GB/64GB pairing as last generation for the standard S9.
- Samsung’s camera improvements reportedly include variable aperture on the primary 12-megapixel camera, allowing it to switch between f/2.4 and f/1.5.
- “super slow-mo” video capture (rapid movement triggers 480fps recording at 720p)
- Fingerprint scanner located more naturally at the bottom of the rear elements.
- The Galaxy S9+ adds a second 12-megapixel rear module, but this one has a standard fixed aperture.
- 8-megapixel Front Facing camera.
- Both phones are slated to include dual stereo speakers, IP68 water and dust resistance, earphones tuned by AKG, an iris scanner, and wireless charging.
